Truck Accident Lawyers in Beverly Hills

Large truck traffic accidents can be traumatic. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines a large truck as one that weighs more than 10,000 pounds, but large 18-wheelers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. The average four-door car weighs between 2,500 and 4,000 pounds, which explains why a collision between a big truck and a sedan can be deadly. Truck crashes are more likely to result in serious injury along with several legal issues than other types of traffic accidents.

How to Determine Who Is at Fault for a Truck Accident

Determining who is responsible for the damage is one of the most difficult aspects of a truck accident. When a car accident occurs, one of the drivers involved is normally held responsible. If a truck is involved, however, other people could be responsible.

These other people or entities can include: 

Truck Driver’s Employer

In most cases, if the truck driver’s negligence caused the crash, the truck driver’s employer would be held responsible. Employers could also be held liable if the accident was caused by the driver being overworked or not receiving enough instruction. Trucking companies must also test their vehicles on a regular basis. 


If the accident was caused by a faulty component on the vehicle, the manufacturer of that part may be held responsible for your injuries.


If a truck accident was caused by road hazards that could have been fixed, you could hold the city, county, or state responsible for your injury.

    “I am very happy with the way they handled my case.”
    My car was rear ended, aggravating a bulging disc. Carpenter & Zuckerman set up all my doctor appointments and paid for everything up front. They were able to get me a settlement for both my injury case and property damage case. I am very happy with the way they handled my case.
