Truck Accidents Lawyers in San Diego

The consequences of a collision with a big-rig or other commercial truck with a normal passenger vehicle are often devastating. In the thousands of commercial truck accidents across the nation each year, injured drivers and their families are often forced to deal with serious life-altering injuries caused by truck drivers. Unfortunately, serious injuries and fatalities are often the result of these tragic accidents due to the large size and weight of the commercial trucks. The long-term financial and physical harm imposed on a victim of a truck accident can be overwhelming and too much to handle on your own. The truck accident attorneys at Hepburn, Hernandez and Jung will help you navigate the complex truck accident process and fight on your behalf to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Examples of Incidents Our Truck Accident Attorneys in San Diego Take On

Commercial truck accidents in San Diego County can occur in many different ways with a variety of vehicles, all of which usually result in serious bodily injury. Some of the different types of truck accidents include:

  • Rollovers
  • Jackknifes
  • Brake malfunctions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Improper loading or weight issue accidents
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Excessive speed accidents
  • Truck driver fatigue accidents
  • Inadequate training accidents
  • Override/Underride accidents
  • Driver inattention accidents
  • 18-wheeler accidents
  • Big-rig accidents
  • Tractor-trailer accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Semi-truck accidents

Commercial truck drivers are professionals and usually require specialized training in vehicle operation and safety protocol. Moreover, truck drivers and their employers are required to follow strict safety guidelines. These guidelines include how long a driver can operate a vehicle, vehicle maintenance checks, and proper loading techniques based on the size and weight of the commercial truck. However, in the demand for increased profit and tight delivery schedules, truck drivers too often disregard the law and their responsibility to avoid putting other drivers in danger. When the rules and regulations designed for safety are not followed, accidents happen.

Large commercial truck driving companies have their own team of representatives and attorneys fighting for them when they get into an accident. Often times immediately following an accident, a representative from a trucking company will report to the scene and begin interviewing victims of the accident when they are most vulnerable. The trucking company representative will try to take control of the accident scene so that they can mitigate or shield their company from liability. When facing an experienced trucking company like this, you need an attorney to fight aggressively on your behalf.

Hepburn, Hernandez and Jung will review every truck accident case in incredible detail and thoroughly investigate the case to determine what caused the accident. We will visit the scene, interview all witnesses, collect and analyze police reports, consult with accident reconstruction experts, and take all necessary steps to determine who is liable and how best to achieve recovery in your case. Contact Hepburn, Hernandez and Jung Trial Attorneys and let us fight on your behalf.

Advantages of Hiring a Truck Accident Attorney in San Diego

A truck accident can have devastating and far-reaching effects on your life that will ultimately jeopardize your physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Any type of collision involving a truck is often very serious in nature and usually involves multiple passenger vehicles. With all that being said, you will benefit immensely from hiring our team to handle your truck accident injury case, and here’s why:


  • Determining a Viable Legal Strategy
    We have a team of experienced attorneys who are going to collect evidence and determine who is at fault for causing your injuries before we begin devising a legal strategy. We explore all of your options and then decide on an approach that will yield the best results. Ultimately, our goal is to obtain a settlement on your behalf that compensates you adequately for the damages you suffered in the accident.


  • Communicating With Insurance Companies
    You also want an attorney to represent you in any ongoing settlement negotiations with the insurance companies. Remember, insurance adjusters have quite a few tricks up their sleeves, and they will try to induce you to accept a settlement offer that doesn’t adequately compensate you. Our experienced attorneys can counteract any attempt they make to pay you less than you deserve.


  • Providing You With Legal Competency
    Filing a personal injury claim against a corporate insurance provider — and without any legal assistance — will prove to be extremely daunting. However, the experts here at HHJ Trial Attorneys in San Diego know exactly what to do in every phase of your claim. We are going to protect your rights and ensure that you can recover the full compensation that you deserve.
