Huntington Beach Truck Accident Lawyer
An accident with a semi-truck can require a great deal of expensive medical care to recover from—and that doesn’t even mention the other damages you’ll experience. Find out how to get compensated by discussing your case with a Huntington Beach truck accident lawyer.
When you’ve been injured in a wreck with a large commercial truck, you need to know who was at fault and how much compensation you should expect to receive. These can be difficult cases to get fairly compensated for because multiple parties will be involved with operating a semi-truck, and none of them will be interested in admitting fault or helping you value your claim.
A Huntington Beach truck accident lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove can help you overcome these challenges. Our firm can investigate the crash, determine who was to blame, and work with your doctor to fully assess how much a fair settlement would be.
Types of Semi-Truck Wrecks
Regardless of the type of truck crash you were in, if someone else was responsible for the collision, you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. Some of the more common truck accident types we see are as follows:
- Jackknife accidents
- Swinging turns
- Lost loads
After being injured in an 18-wheeler wreck of any sort, we encourage you to seek immediate medical care and file an accident report. Then call our office to speak with a Huntington Beach truck accident lawyer.
Common Injuries in Commercial Truck Accidents
Given the size difference between a semi-truck and a personal vehicle, it is far more likely for the occupant of the smaller vehicle to be injured than the trucker. The risk for serious and fatal injuries is also much higher in 18-wheeler crashes in general.
It is critical that you seek immediate medical attention and a thorough examination. Even if you are unsure of how badly you were injured, it is important to seek medical care since things like traumatic brain injuries often go undiagnosed.
Some of the common injuries that your Huntington Beach truck accident lawyer will have experience handling claims for are listed below:
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
- Severe burns
- Wrongful death
Knowing Who to Sue for a Semi-Truck Wreck
From a legal perspective, the most difficult aspect of an 18-wheeler crash is knowing who to sue. This can be complicated because the driver, trucking company, truck manufacturer, and maintenance company could all have partial responsibility.
We will need to investigate your accident and determine why it occurred and who caused it. Then we will need to analyze the relationship between the truck driver and the trucking company to determine who should be named in your lawsuit. In some cases, you may need to name several parties to ensure that you have the best opportunity for receiving full compensation.
Truck Accident Compensation
Our objective is to get you as much money for your injuries as possible. We will evaluate all of the ways that you have suffered physically and financially. This means that you could receive compensation for more than just your medical bills:
- Lost wages, income, and earning potential

- Cost of physical therapy and alternative treatments
