Los Angeles Truck Accident Attorneys
Helping Victims of 18-Wheeler Accidents Recover Compensation
If you have been in an accident involving a truck or other heavy commercial vehicle, contact the Law Offices of Gary Berkovich today! Truckers and other commercial drivers are often not willing to cooperate with truck accident claims because they can lose their licenses; however, you cannot count on receiving help from insurance companies either, especially if you have suffered costly, catastrophic injuries. You need someone who will fight for you.
Our team of Los Angeles truck accident lawyers understands the complexities of commercial truck accident cases. If you have been injured, we can help you secure quality medical treatment, determine liability, figure out the amount of compensation you need for maximum recovery, and properly handle all related legal paperwork and procedures related to your case. We understand that this is a tough time for you and your family—let us make it easier for you by taking care of the legal aspects of your case on your behalf!
Common Truck Accident Injuries
As you can see, heavy truck accident claims are very different from regular car accident claims. Not only are the former more challenging to resolve, but they also tend to involve more traumatic injuries. This is because the large size and weight of 18-wheelers and other commercial shipping vehicles can easily cause devastating damage to anything they crash into.
Truck accidents that aren’t life-threatening often lead to catastrophic injuries. These are defined as injuries the victim is never fully expected to recover from. Common catastrophic injuries caused by truck accidents include:
- Broken and fractured bones
- Loss of limb
- Severe spinal cord injuries
- Severe traumatic brain injuries
- Severe burns
If you suffer a catastrophic injury in a truck crash, the results can vary wildly between being able to make a complete recovery to requiring permanent 24/7 care depending on the severity of the injury. No matter the scope of the injury, our firm always fights to win compensation that will cover all your accident-related medical and other expenses. This includes any projected future expenses so that you and your family are comfortably covered for life.
Damages Available in a Truck Accident Claim
Because truck accidents often result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities, settling such claims are usually more costly than typical motor vehicle accident claims. Trucking companies often employ teams of their own attorneys to protect their reputation and bottom line, so getting the money you need for your recovery will almost definitely not be easy.
An attorney of your own can help level the playing field. Experienced truck accident attorneys, like us, understand the many complexities involved in these cases as well as the type of strategies trucking companies employ to get off easy. We will not let them. Our team will fight to obtain the full amount of compensation you deserve.
Depending on the specific facts of your case, we may be able to help you receive the following damages:
- All medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Property damage to your vehicle
- Punitive damages
In the event of wrongful death, we may also be able to secure:
- Death benefits for surviving family members
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of companionship, consortium, and love
When it comes to seeking damages for injuries caused by accidents with buses or company trucks, due diligence and expertise in personal injury cases are imperative for success. Gary B. will get you the money you deserve. Case reviews are always free, and we don’t get paid unless you get paid.

One of the most complicated aspects of a truck accident claim is liability. When a typical car crash occurs, usually a single motorist is found to be at fault. However, a truck driver is not the only person who can be responsible for a truck crash.
For example, the trucking company that owns the vehicle might be found to be at fault if the accident was caused by a faulty tire they should have known to replace. If the brakes malfunction, the truck’s manufacturer or mechanic might be determined to be at fault. An accident caused by improperly loaded cargo might be blamed on the loading company. There are so many variables involved that determining liability can be a lengthy and difficult process. Having a lawyer on your side can help.
