Most accidents that involve trucks or large vehicles in Pasadena end up with serious results. Because they are vehicles of enormous size and weight, when 18-wheelers collide with other vehicles, there is usually significant damage to people and property.
Truck accident victims have the right to be compensated for damages to their property, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent injuries or disfigurement. The truck industry is strictly regulated, and claims by injury victims can be filed against both the driver and the trucking company.
The accident claim, however, can be more complex than regular auto accidents. Avrek Law Firm’s truck accident lawyers in Pasadena have more than 50 years of combined experience investigating and pursuing compensation for damages realized in truck accidents.
