TRUST THE BIG RIG ACCIDENT LAWYERS IN MERCED WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

The first step to recovery is determining who may be at fault. In trucking accidents, weakness depends upon who and what action(s) caused your accident. Common accident factors include:

  • Failure to maintain the vehicle
  • Speeding and aggressive driving
  • Tired drivers
  • Drunk driving
  • Unsecured cargo
  • Unsafe lane changes

Proving negligence in commercial trucking accidents is particular to your story and requires a detailed- and client-oriented Merced prominent rig accident attorney.

MERCED BIG RIG ACCIDENT ATTORNEY CAN NAVIGATE THE LEGAL SYSTEM FOR YOU

In addition to state negligence laws, there is heavy federal regulation of commercial trucks, including:

  • Licensing and training requirements
  • Driver fatigue and meal requirements
  • Weight of truckload regulation
  • Emergency procedures
  • Mandatory rest stops

However, not all companies follow these regulations. Trucking companies that negligently hire, fail to supervise drivers, or fail to maintain their vehicles may share liability. Mr. Rivas’ command of California injury law and federal regulations helps steer negotiations with stubborn companies and their insurance firms. These parties often try to minimize your compensation to save their bottom line, regardless of how that may affect you. Jacob J. Rivas, Attorney at Law, will not let them escape it. Our Merced tractor-trailer accident lawyers know the tricks these companies use to deny your claims. With their knowledge of those tricks, we offer that insight into your case against even the most formidable adversary.
