Collisions Involving Large Trucks Are Rarely Minor

The sheer mass of a big rig or tractor-trailer combination means that the injuries suffered in a truck accident are likely to be catastrophic or even fatal, especially at California highway speeds. Our practice emphasizes the development and proof of claims in cases involving severe and disabling injuries to the spinal column or brain. Our ability to support your damages demand with specific documentation with respect to all aspects of your present and future losses can give you a significant advantage in the resolution of your claim.

Proof of liability in truck accident cases will usually involve testimony and reports by accident reconstruction specialists, highway safety engineers, materials experts and trucking industry professionals to show just how and why your accident occurred. We concentrate on prompt investigation of all the factors that can bear on the liability of any number of potential defendants, from the driver of the truck to the owner's maintenance service. In many truck accident cases, multiple defendants can be identified and held accountable. Team up with our attorneys at Shea & Shea - A Professional Law Corporation and call (408) 292-2434 now.

We Will Put Our Resources To Work For You

We rely on treating physicians, forensic medical experts, vocational rehabilitation specialists, economists, pain management professionals and experts from many other fields to analyze and document the full range of your damages. If you are suffering from a closed head injury that is disputed by the defense, we will use a neuropsychologist to relate a particular loss of cognitive function to a specific blow to the head. If you suffered extensive burn injuries, we will work with a life care nurse and case management professional to outline the full range of expenses you can expect to incur in the course of a long convalescence. Our attorneys will also thoroughly investigate the precise cause of your truck accident as we build your legal strategy.

No matter what your vehicle collision-related injuries might be, we will work with you and your doctors from the beginning of the case to make sure you receive the medical care and diagnostic tests you need, even when your primary insurer denies payment. Because the proof of both liability and damages in the cases we handle so often involves highly technical evidence presented through expert professionals, it is often necessary to commit significant resources to developing and presenting the facts essential to proving your claim. We advance all the expenses involved with the investigation and presentation of your case and recover them only if we succeed on your behalf.
