San Diego Truck Accident Attorneys

We’ve all been there. Driving down the freeway on the way to work or to visit friends, and you see a huge commercial truck or semi-truck driving way too fast for the conditions or straddling lanes creating a dangerous situation. It’s really scary.

Unfortunately, every year in California, more than 300 people are killed and over 4,000 are injured in truck accidents or semi-truck accidents involving big rigs and 18 wheelers. As a regional hub and major transportation corridor, we have more than our share of truck accidents. Due to the mismatch in weight, collisions with commercial trucks routinely cause severe injuries or death to those in the smaller vehicle.

When a trucking accident or semi-truck accident occurs, the trucking company will likely send their own representatives to the scene of the accident immediately, to talk to the victims when they are at their most vulnerable. Their objective in a nutshell, is to severely limit their liability by taking statements that may be later used against you to mitigate your claim.

This is much different than a typical car accident. As a matter of fact, trucking accidents are an entirely different ballgame altogether. That’s why it is crucial that victims hire specialized trucking accident lawyers like Phillips and Pelly, to ensure the best chance at proper and just compensation for their injuries.

It’s the same thing as a car accident

No, it is not. First, the physical consequences of an error made on the part of the truck driver are much more severe due to the sheer size of their vehicle. More times than not, the truck driver walks away unharmed, while occupants in the opposing car are left either seriously injured or dead.

Unleash the lawyers. Commercial trucks are likely owned by big companies with a team of lawyers in place, ready to defend their drivers at a moment’s notice. Imagine that you are severely injured, still shaken over the incident, and now have a team of highly experienced defense attorneys from the trucking company coming at you from every angle, to prevent paying you a settlement?

Although there are a number of state and federal trucking regulations designed to keep us safe, trucking companies and their drivers regularly violate these regulations, putting us all at risk of injury or even death. If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, consider hiring your own team of trucking accident injury attorneys to go toe to toe with the trucking company, holding them responsible.

Our savvy, experienced San Diego truck accident lawyers know the importance of full and comprehensive investigations when necessary, to help determine if there were any violations contributing to the accident and your injuries.

    You can go with the catchy jingles that you see on TV as I did, and become just another client. Or you can go with a firm that treats you like family, and sets the bar high by fighting for the maximum payment from your injuries. Very impressed and glad I made the switch! Thanks for everything I truly appreciate you.

    I worked with Ashley LaFontaine and she was absolutely wonderful in getting me the care I needed. When things with the doctors got hung up she helped get things moving. She was super communicative and kept me in the loop through every step of the process. Set expectations from beginning to end very well and exceed my expectations!

    I met Oliver Pelly by happenstance and after I grilled him a couple of times, I decided to hire his firm. After being my initial POC, I began working with Blake Woodhall. Both were standup guys, and Blake kept me in-the-loop the entire time. He was patient when explaining the process and going over details and understanding of my situation and concerns. Everything concluded better than I could have expected, and Blake acted as an excellent buffer to keep everything at bay. I would highly recommend Blake, Oliver and their firm for any auto accident cases.

    Going through my accident was a very difficult and emotional experience. The process of choosing the right law firm can be overwhelming. Choosing Phillips and Pelly was the best decision I could have made. They are extremely knowledgeable and I trusted Oliver’s expertise throughout the entire process. He was very responsive. Anytime I would have a question, including nights and weekends, Oliver would get back to me right away. I would recommend Phillips and Pelly for anyone going through a similar situation. They really are the best.

    I have enjoyed my experience with this law firm. Alecia Gordon represented me with my case and throughout this entire ordeal has been extremely supportive and understanding of my own lack of experience and knowledge of legal matters. She is not only kind and considerate but very intelligent and professional. The paralegal team also deserve kudos as they were always there to assist and assure me of progress and necessary document completions. All in all, I would highly recommend this firm for personal injury claims.

    Matt was very helpful in settling a case for my son that was a passenger in an automobile that crashed into a home. My son suffered cracked ribs, a concussion amongst other injuries. Matt was helpful explaining everything to us as this was a 1st dealing with anything like this for our family. It took time and patience as the other party was reluctant to settle. In the end my son had his ambulance, medical bills and a small amount of recovered monies all paid out. Great man, lawyer and law firm .Highly reccomended
