San Francisco Bay Area Truck Accident Attorney

If You’ve Been Injured in a Truck or Big Rig Accident, Know Your Rights

A truck accident-related injury is just one type of personal injury claim that we specialize in when fighting for our clients’ rights in court. For more about our personal injury services, please see our “Bay Area Personal Injury Attorney” page. Or for other types of personal injury claims we support, see the links below.

Semi-truck or “big rig” accidents can cause loss of life, serious injuries, and lifelong disability.  Semi-truck accidents involve a combination of federal and state laws.  When a driver, company, or mechanic is at fault, the injured party is entitled to compensation.   The attorneys at Venardi Zurada have the specialized knowledge you need to protect your rights and obtain the compensation you or your loved one deserves.  If a truck accident has resulted in injury or death, you should have an experienced San Francisco Bay Area accident attorney to represent you.

Big Rig, 18-Wheelers, & Other Commercial Truck Accidents

Large commercial trucks, including tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers, are massive vehicles that can cause significant property damage and serious physical injuries when accidents occur. When a truck accident and injury is caused by negligence, our experienced San Francisco Bay Area, Walnut Creek, Oakland, Marin County or Santa Cruz accident attorneys can help you recover medical expenses, lost wages, compensation for pain and suffering, and other damages. Some common causes of truck accidents involving negligence include:

  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Brake failure
  • Truck defects
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving

Early investigation is extremely important in truck accident cases.  We have the resources to retain the best experts, perform accident reconstructions, and get you the compensation you deserve.  The sooner you speak to an attorney, the better your chances are of making a substantial recovery.
