Our experienced Huntington Beach truck accident lawyers are prepared to fight for your right to compensation to cover medical bills, therapy, rehabilitation, medical equipment, disability accommodations, lost wage replacement, and pain and suffering.

The sooner after a truck accident an investigation gets underway, the more likely it is that the true cause of the accident can be determined. Valuable information and evidence such as a truck driver's log or vivid eyewitness testimony may be available for a limited period of time.

If a lawsuit may be brought against a public entity (such as a municipality or the county when road construction is a factor), there may be strict statutes of limitation, allowing a claim only within a short period of time. If the truck was engaged in interstate commerce, federal trucking regulations will figure into the investigation.
