Fresno Truck Accident Attorney
Trucking accidents are extremely serious and usually result in catastrophic damage to other vehicles and can be fatal to others on the road. A fully loaded 18 wheeler can weigh 40 tons. When one of these huge vehicles gets out of control, smaller vehicles in its way do not stand a chance. Unless you are very lucky, injuries from such accidents can be severe and life-threatening, if not immediately fatal. As trucking companies are so exposed in such accidents, their insurance companies can be on the scene before the police report is even completed. This is one aspect of such cases that make it urgent that you contact a Fresno personal injury attorney right away if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident of this type. The Law Offices of Nuttall & Coleman can protect your rights and ensure you are properly represented while you recover from the experience.

It is possible that carelessness or negligence on the part of the truck driver caused the accident. Truckers are required by law to adhere to safety guidelines such as how many hours can be driven in a day. These laws are designed to ensure that a driver maintains alertness and is able to operate the vehicle safely. A driver should also be properly trained, should be following the laws of the road, and definitely should never be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. A professional and experienced attorney can investigate each of these factors to determine the causative factors and the degree of liability and exposure of the trucking company.
