Trustworthy Help After A Commercial Truck Accident

The damages in accidents involving semi-trucks, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers tend to be catastrophic. Some of the most common causes of commercial truck accidents include:

  • Distracted truck drivers
  • Truck drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Improperly maintained trucks
  • Improperly loaded trucks
  • Defective auto parts

Trucking companies and their insurers will go to just about any lengths to avoid liability, including blaming you for the crash. You will need a truck accident attorney like Bo who can gather evidence such as truck logs, black box data, security footage and more. He has successfully identified the source of the fault and gotten the liable party’s insurer to pay his clients’ damages.

As a workers’ compensation lawyer, Bo Katzakian can also help you if you are driving a company vehicle for your job and you had a crash. Through a trucking accident claim, he may be able to help you recover compensation from third parties such as the truck manufacturer. Remember, you have only two years from the date of the crash to file a claim, so act fast.

Guidance After A Catastrophic Car Accident

Every driver will have a fender-bender at some point, but a car crash resulting in a serious injury is much different. In the insurance world, a serious injury means an injury that results in disfigurement or impairment of a bodily function or that poses a risk of death.

California follows comparative negligence laws when it comes to motor vehicle accidents. This means that even if you share a portion of the fault for causing the accident, you may still recover compensation proportionately. For example, if the court determines that you have a 10% fault, then you may recover compensation for up to 90% of your damages.

Protecting Your Rights When Products Are Not Safe

Did a dangerous or defective product cause harm to you? In California, product liability laws tend to protect the consumer. As long as you were using the item in a manner reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, they have strict liability for your damages if it causes you an injury. These strict liability laws apply to three forms of defects:

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Design defects
  • Warning defects (failure to warn the consumer)

Strict liability can also apply to breach of warranty. There is a two-year statute of limitations to product liability claims. You and your personal injury lawyer need to file your claim within two years of the date of your injury or illness.

What If My Injury Happened On Someone Else’s Property?

Property owners owe guests a duty of care. If they fail to provide this duty of care by keeping their premises safe, they may owe you damages if you suffer an injury on their property. To have a successful claim regarding premises liability, you must prove that:

  1. The property owner knew about or should have known about a dangerous condition on their premises.
  2. They failed to fix this hazard.
  3. As a result, you suffered harm and have compensable damages.

Bo can help you file a claim against private individuals, public entities, businesses and other property owners or tenants. He cares deeply about righting the wrong you suffered and making public conditions safer for other people.
