Truck and Motorcycle Accidents

Complex trucking accident cases require experienced trucking accident attorneys

When an 80,000-pound 18-wheeler collides with a typical passenger car, the results are often catastrophic. Causes of the crash could include:

  • Truck driver fatigue or inattention
  • Limited visibility
  • Reckless driving
  • Insufficient truck driver training
  • Faulty brakes or other truck parts or systems
  • Improperly loaded or overloaded trucks

In trucking accident cases, those responsible could include not only the truck driver, but also the trucking company and its insurance company.

We demand full and fair compensation

The trucking company and its insurance company will most likely be quick to get to the accident scene and gather evidence. They will do all they can to discredit your claim.

But as experienced San Mateo and San Francisco truck accident attorneys with 30 years of hand-to-hand combat with these companies, we know what to expect and how best to advocate for your rights through either settlement, if an offer is in your best interest, or trial. We will not settle for anything less than the full and fair compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage and pain and suffering.

Motorcyclists deserve the full extent of the law

While public opinion often sways away from injured motorcyclists, you are protected under California's personal injury law. While you may be protected by your helmet, diligent roadway attention and your wits, injury is inevitable when you're faced with a careening car or truck or other roadway obstacle.

Petsas Law, a law firm dedicated to service of personal injury victims, deals with facts. As with any other injury case we undertake, we conduct thorough investigation into the facts surrounding your accident and consult with our network of medical experts and accident reconstructionists. Our San Mateo personal injury attorneys separate the truth from the illusion to develop a compelling case that targets full and fair compensation for your injury.
