Trucks are still one of the most popular ways that goods are transported across California. Very often, they must pass through San Jose when in transit to a delivery location. Between traffic and the size of California, truck drivers are usually on the road long hours and they are often in a hurry to meet a delivery deadline.
Unfortunately, because of these conditions, truck accidents that result from reckless driving or negligent maintenance of a tractor-trailer are also commonplace. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, you should demand justice and compensation for your injuries.

Proving Truck Driver and Trucking Company Negligence
We have experience handling truck accident cases resulting from all of the following causes:
- Driver fatigue
- A driver being intoxicated or under the influence of illegal drugs or prescription medication
- Unsafe lane changes
- Wide or illegal turns
- Failing to brake timely or use the correct braking system
- Overloaded or poorly secured loads
- Bad brakes, tires, mirrors or lights
We have the experience and resources to hold trucking companies and their insurance carriers accountable for the tragedies they cause. We know how to perform comprehensive accident reconstruction to show how an accident happened and who was at fault. We will work with you to collect witness statements, detailed documentation of your injuries as well as proof on misconduct by the driver or the company that employs them.
For instance, we will obtain copies of the truck driver’s logs to determine if hours of service laws and federal regulations were complied with or abused in an attempt to meet delivery goals. We will look into the driver’s work history to see if there is a pattern of reckless conduct and if his or her employer was aware of the behavior. We will also see if the driver was trained properly. If mechanical problems contributed to the accident, we will obtain the company’s maintenance records to see if the rig was serviced timely and have the truck inspected before the evidence drives away or the black box is altered or removed.
