Truck Crashes in Bakersfield, California

Our attorneys have experience helping clients with many different types of truck accident claims. We understand the complexity of these cases and we know what it takes to build a strong case to earn full and fair compensation for you and your family. We also know how insurance companies operate and we can fight to protect your rights against aggressive insurers who may attempt to minimize liability and undervalue your claims to protect the bottom line.

Some of the most common truck accident cases we handle:

  • Rear-end collisions: When a truck driver is distracted and slams into stopped traffic at an intersection or an off-ramp.
  • Jackknife accidents: When a truck skids and folds as it crashes, obstructing traffic and endangering drivers across several lanes.
  • Sideswipe accidents: When a truck driver tries to merge, turn, or change lanes without giving drivers enough time to leave the truck’s blind spots.
  • Underride accidents: When a smaller vehicle gets caught under a large semi-truck or big rig, which often results in devastating accidents.
  • Rollover accidents: When a truck and its trailer tip or roll over onto smaller vehicles in adjacent lanes, often caused by overloaded or top-heavy trailers.
  • Cargo accidents: When unsecured cargo falls off a truck’s trailer or flatbed and strikes vehicles behind it.
