Los Angeles Truck Accident Insurance Claims

Involvement in a truck accident can be devastating on many levels, including bodily harm, financial distress, loss of property and in some tragic cases, the wrongful death of a loved one. Damages suffered can be extensive, and often the insurance company representing the defendant will make attempts to minimize the level of responsibility and payout. When you or someone you love has been involved in a trucking accident, the last thing you want is to become mired down by insurance company logistics and the frustrating maze of the legal process. You want to focus on healing and finding balance in life again after the upheaval of such a serious accident.

Experience that Speaks for Itself

With 12 years of experience in dealing with the specifics of truck injury accidents across the state of California, you need the expertise and experience of an attorney who will advocate for your rights and assist you in reclaiming compensation for property and bodily damages suffered. The Offices of Daniel A. Gibalevich know how to maneuver the process of dealing with insurance companies when they seek to minimize due compensation.

 Compensation for Damages Suffered

Following a truck-related accident, victims are often left disoriented, confused and overwhelmed by the sudden challenges they face. In extreme cases, where families are left to mourn the unfortunate loss of a loved one, their lives can be turned completely upside down. Families and victims need a reliable attorney to assist them through the legal maze of dealing with insurance companies and commercial trucking companies who have only their best interest in mind. Insurance companies will do their best to deny legitimate claims at all cost, so it is imperative to align yourself with an attorney who is well versed in maneuvering the insurance process to maximize compensation and demand that your rights as a victim are upheld.

 Knowledge of California Specific Laws

In California, specific laws apply to commercial trucking companies involved in accidents and this variety of accident is different than those involving regular automobiles and drivers. It doesn’t work to relate to an accident with a large trucking company in the same way, which is why you need an attorney skilled in the specifics of this particular type of incident. Our attorneys will assist you in developing your case through careful analysis of evidence, witness testimonials, medical reports, police reports and the recreation of the accident scene. In the aftermath of an accident involving a large commercial truck, consider the following:

  • Remain on-site
  • Report the accident and call emergency medical services immediately if necessary. By notifying the police immediately, you create official documentation of the incident.
  • Do not remove your damaged vehicle so that police and investigators can reconstruct the scene of the accident
  • Refrain from divulging information to insurance agencies other than your own until you have spoken with a legal representative
  • Notify your own insurance company immediately and keep clear notes and records on all information, including license plates and insurance information from involved parties
  • If possible, take pictures using a camera or mobile phone to record injuries and property damage
