Personal Injury Lawyer for California Truck Accidents
When you have been involved in a semi-truck accident, court proceedings are often the last thing on your mind. From injuries to financial loss, your world has been turned entirely upside down.

If you have been injured, we are here to help you secure the financial benefits you may be entitled to while you recover.
We understand what you are going through following your semi-truck accident. It is our team’s priority to obtain the financial compensation you deserve, so you can move past this accident. Our truck accident attorneys are here for you.
Potential Causes of Trucking-Related Wrecks:
A surprising number of factors come into play when determining the cause of trucking accidents. Determining who or what is responsible for the wreck is one of the most important aspects of your case, as it determines financial obligations. Common causes of trucking-related wrecks include:
- Abuse of Drugs and Alcohol
- Distracted or Fatigued Drivers
- Inadequate Maintenance History
- Manufacturing Defects
- Violation of Safety Regulations
- Violation of Service Hour Limitations
- Violation of Traffic Laws
Aside from the immediate aftermath of your truck accident, there may also be lasting consequences from missing work to going through rehabilitation. You will also likely find that talking to insurance companies (who most often want to cheat you out of the compensation you deserve) is getting you nowhere. Often times, multiple parties are at fault. Because both California and Oregon are comparative negligence states, damages can be proportionally awarded. As a result, even if you are partially at fault you may still be entitled to compensation.
You Can Recover a Variety of Damages and Losses:
Following your truck wreck, your focus should be entirely on your wellbeing. Perhaps you are being rushed to the hospital for life-threatening injuries or facing the financial consequences of totaling your only method of getting to work. Despite the stress you are under, the truck driver’s employer might already be building its case to claim no fault. Even though you do not deserve to pay for someone else’s mistake, the parties at fault are usually set on avoiding financial compensation. Without the right legal help, this sad reality could leave you in dire financial circumstances.
Aside from the immediate aftermath of your truck accident, there may also be lasting consequences. From missing work to going through rehabilitation, you will likely find that talking to insurance companies (who most often want to cheat you out of the compensation you deserve) is getting you nowhere. Hiring a truck wreck attorney allows you to focus on getting better, all while knowing you are not facing financial ruin. The Idiart Injury Lawyers recognize what truly matters to you, as well as the struggles you are facing. That is why we can potentially secure compensation for:
- Medical Expenses
- Physical Therapy
- Property Damage and Loss
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Wrongful Death
The specific damages you are eligible to receive compensation for depend entirely on the circumstances of your specific case. However, most individuals qualify for multiple types of compensation due to the complex nature of truck wrecks. A variety of factors helps determine both fault and the extent of the damage. Our team has handled countless cases involving trucking related accidents, and we have the experience necessary to secure every penny you deserve. In order to obtain financial compensation, we must demonstrate that you are the victim of the accident, as well as that the other party was at fault. We rely on the following pieces of evidence to do this:
- Accident Reconstruction Experts
- Insurance Company Reports
- Medical Bills and Statements
- Photos of the Scene of the Accident
- Police Reports
- Video Evidence
- Witness Testimony
Even if you believe that the truck accident was entirely your fault, it is in your best interest to discuss the specifics of your case with one of our attorneys. Any evidence that points to fault on the part of the truck driver or the trucking company could result in financial compensation for your wreck. You need to work with our team and rely on our attention to detail.
Filing for a Truck Accident Personal Injury Claim:
Most states have a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. In other words, there is a two-year window following the date of your truck accident to pursue legal action. While the process may exceed this time frame, it must begin before the end of the statute of limitations.
In the event of a wrongful death related to the truck wreck, the statute of limitations varies. In the state of California, an individual has two years following the final accident-related injury to file a claim—even if the individual died months following the crash. In the state of Oregon, however, that time frame is three years following said date.
I was injured in an accident involving a large or commercial truck. Do I need an attorney?
These types of accidents are extremely complex as the truck driver may not be the sole party at fault. The company the driver works for, as well as the company that owns the truck, can be liable for the damages you have faced. An attorney can help you determine who exactly is liable for the accident, decide what the best settlement may be, and bring the case to trial if deemed necessary.
Please remember to avoid speaking with insurance agents directly and to have all conversations go through our law office. Anything you say may be used against you in court to lower your financial compensation, regardless of its context. Your attorney can help determine if settling out of court is a viable option.
Can I still file a personal injury lawsuit if I was partially at fault?
Yes, you can file a lawsuit despite being partially at fault. The state of California and the state of Oregon are both comparative negligence states. This means a court can decide to what degree each party is at fault and award damages based on that determination. As long as you are deemed to be less than fifty percent at fault, you are eligible for financial compensation.

“First time using a lawyer. Always answered my calls/texts/emails. Got me the limit of insurance available. Would definitely use again. Love their energy and willingness to take my case. Called two other lawyers first who both said no to my case because “they were too busy and my case wasn’t big enough” LOL. This firm got me $100K, I guess the other ones don’t like money…or maybe just don’t like to work. TY Idiart Law.” – Gerald G.
“The simple fact is that this law firm earned the respect that I now have for it. So with all this said, don’t look anywhere else. Experience all this for yourself by talking with them. My case has been over for several months and life (fortunately) has moved on. I miss there protection, I miss there guidance, I miss them. So please realize these words, hire them, so you to can experience the feeling of these words. You won’t be sorry. One last thing, to Damian and jared.

“I was in a car accident, not my fault. I fought for a fair settlement with the other insurance company for 2 years. At that point I ask Idiart lawyers to step in and help me. A year later, We settled of of court. I got a very fair settlement. Would recommend them to anyone.” – Leanna C.
“Idiart Law Group was like a lighthouse in a storm a beacon of light after my accident and injury. It was very traumatic injury and as I was trying to recover all I got were bills and demands from providers and ins.companies and much stress. Being at no fault I expected things to go smoother and things would work out but quickly found out I was wrong and needed help so I could concentrate on recovery. I am so happy I chose them to represent me so I couldn’t be taken advantage of. The stressful phone calls stopped and they took over the details. Not only did they take good care of me but they are good people and I wish them well.” – Sean S.
“This is the most honest law firm I’ve dealt with. I called them very close to limitations, as I thought an attorney wasn’t needed. Boy, was I wrong. Damian agreed to take the case and as skeptical as I was about attorneys, I’m so glad he agreed to take the case, because he believed my injuries, where the defense didn’t… I had multiple back surgeries, as well as car accidents. The case has been handled in an expeditious manner. Most of all, (which I almost can’t believe) the case has been fair! Need a Personal injury attorney, call Idiart Law Group, you’ll be glad you did! I will call them without thinking twice!” – Clair H.
“I went with a lawyer for my car accident and these lawyers helped me a ton. The insurance company of the drunk driver that hit me and injured me made a small offer which I refused to accept. Finally after calling this law firm and after a few months of fighting with the insurance company, they got me the maximum settlement from the insurance company. It ended up being more than 10 times the offer the car insurance gave me on my own. I would recommend the Idiarts to anyone I know. ” – Salustiana A.
“I was in my first accident and I felt very lost. I am so thankful that I was guided through the insurance maze by my attorneys. I always felt listened to. And I am convinced that my settlement was far larger because of their help. Thank you Idiart Law Group.” – John B.
