Truck Accident Cases are Unique

Truck accidents are devastating. In addition to their massive size, truck drivers are under great pressure to drive long hours and deliver supplies on time. Although most trips end safely, it is inevitable that trucks will crash given that there are about 15.5 million trucks moving 9.4 billion tons of freight in a given year.

A seemingly minor mistake made by the driver of a passenger car, such as a lane change without a turn signal, can mean a multi-car pileup and great injury when an 18-wheeler is involved.

A skilled truck accident lawyer can help explain the difference between this case against a normal car accident. We can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Litigating Truck Accident Cases

Truck accidents differ from other vehicle collisions because of the severity of the injuries and the issues that could arise during litigation.

The legal processes following a truck accident can seem intimidating, because truck drivers are backed by their employer, their legal team, and their insurance provider. However, truck drivers are also subject to strict regulations.

Collisions with semi-trucks often result in brain injuries, spine injuries, bone fractures, burns, and other injuries that require intensive surgery and rehabilitation. Victims of 18-wheeler truck accidents are usually left with expensive medical bills and the costs that arise from being unable to work.

Complex Truck Accident Claims Require an Experienced Team

Both Federal and State law recognizes the risks that the trucking industry creates for ordinary drivers on the road. Trucking companies use these vehicles to make money, their drivers must be commercially licensed, and commercial drivers must carry far more insurance than regular road users – a minimum of $750,000 in California, and usually in excess of $1 million dollars. In contrast, regular drivers must carry just $15,000 in liability coverage.

Our Orange County truck accident lawyers understand the complexities of 18-wheeler collisions. We have the experience and proven track record you need to effectively negotiate or litigate your truck accident claim.

Rollover Auto Accident

The insurance company wrongfully refused to pay our client the $100k policy limit in a rollover auto accident. RMD Law refused to take no for an answer, and filed a lawsuit alleging bad faith, ultimately winning millions for our deserving client.


Auto v. Auto Settlement

Confidential bad faith settlement – a negligent driver t-boned our client at a red light resulting in severe spinal injuries. The defendant’s insurance company unreasonably refused to pay the $100K policy limit. RMD Law filed a lawsuit seeking the true value of the case. Policy was opened, and the client settled for an amount vastly higher than the original limits.

In 2021, the state of California recorded 437 deaths from truck crashes. There are a number of factors that affect


California is the most populous state in the United States, with a large number of vehicles on the roads. This leads to increased traffic congestion which increases the likelihood of truck accidents.


California’s large size and diverse geography necessitate the transportation of goods over long distances. Long-haul trucking is common in the state, with trucks traveling extended distances on highways. The longer the distance traveled, the higher the chances of accidents occurring.


California has an extensive network of highways and interstates that facilitate the movement of goods and people. While this network is essential for commerce and transportation, it directly increases the probability of trucking-related accidents occurring.


California’s varied terrain includes mountainous regions, coastal highways, and congested urban areas. These diverse road conditions can present challenges for large truck drivers, especially when navigating steep gradients, tight curves, or heavy traffic. Poor weather conditions, such as heavy rain or fog, can further increase the risks associated with truck driving.


California is a major gateway for international trade, with several busy ports such as the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach. These ports receive and distribute goods from all over the world, leading to a significant volume of truck traffic on highways and local roads. The increased presence of large trucks in close proximity to densely populated areas can contribute to a higher risk of accidents.


Like in any state, driver fatigue, distraction, impaired driving, and other human errors can contribute to accidents involving large trucks. Long hours on the road, demanding schedules, and pressure to meet delivery deadlines can lead to fatigue, impairing a truck driver’s ability to react effectively to potential hazards.

While there are efforts to improve safety on California’s roads, it remains among the states with the most deaths and injuries from large truck accidents. Let the experienced truck accident lawyers of RMD Law help you win the compensation you deserve.

The lawyers at RMD are everything you could want. They are experts in their field, and extremely efficient, thorough and caring. They called me back immediately and spent a substantial amount of time explaining the process to me and quite honestly calming me down. I never felt pressured or felt a salesman vibe. I did get the sense that I was in good hands. They handled everything with minimal stress for me, which was key. Thanks for everything.

I have worked with John, a managing partner, and have been very happy with his casual every-man approach to some rather complex issues. He put things in plain, easy to digest language and made me feel comfortable with the process and his handle on the situation. Would definitely recommend.

John went above and beyond to assist me with my personal injury case after I was involved in a car accident. I spoke to several attorneys regarding my case and although I decided against hiring one due to the minor damages on my car, John was the only attorney I felt like I could trust. I was truly blown away by his kindness, honesty, and willingness to answer all of my questions and go over different options with me. He truly went above and beyond and showed a great amount of compassion and integrity. If I'm ever involved in an accident again, I will not hesitate to call John at RMD Law.

Frequently Asked Questions

Truck accidents can result in various types of injuries, ranging from minor to severe, and sometimes even fatal. In California, where there is a significant amount of truck traffic, below are some common injuries that can occur in truck accidents:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI)
  • Neck and Back Injuries
  • Fractures and Broken Bones
  • Internal Organ Damage
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Burns
  • Psychological Injuries

It’s important to note that every accident is unique, and the severity of injuries can vary. Seeking immediate medical attention after a truck accident is crucial, even if injuries may not seem apparent at first, as some injuries may have delayed symptoms.

In California, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit related to a truck accident is generally two years from the date of the accident.

While you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries and damages, it’s important to be aware that there can be exceptions and variations to the statute of limitations depending on the specific circumstances of your case. Additionally, there are certain situations where the statute of limitations may be tolled or extended.

It’s always advisable to consult with a personal injury attorney who can provide guidance specific to your case and ensure that you meet all necessary deadlines.
