Glendale is surrounded by truck routes. While many truckers operate their rigs safely, others drive while fatigued, distracted, or intoxicated. Some are merely reckless and refuse to share the road. If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a crash with a big rig, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. 

Our Glendale truck accident attorneys can fight for the compensation you need. Call KJT Law Group for a free consultation today.

What Can Our Truck Accident Team Do for You and Your Case?

You’ll see your fair share of attorney billboards while driving around Glendale. But those attorneys don’t have what we do. We’ve recovered over $100 million for our clients since opening our doors. 

But we know that you aren’t just a case for us to win. 

You’re a person who was involved in a very scary situation, suffering from painful injuries and anxiety. We want to do everything we can to alleviate your worries and get you the compensation you need. One way we do this is by giving you direct access to your attorney. You won’t need to call a middleman who will then take a message for your attorney for them to respond to whenever they feel like it. You work directly with them. 

We also know how difficult and complex truck accident cases can be. We will handle every aspect of your claim from gathering evidence and sending spoliation letters (these keep the trucking company from destroying evidence) to negotiating for the compensation you need and preparing your case for trial. 

We have attorneys and staff members who can help you in English, Armenian, and Spanish. We are proud to assist and to be a part of the Armenian community in Glendale. 

What Is My Glendale Truck Accident Case Worth?

We cannot determine the value of your case without investigating your accident and identifying all your damages. However, common recoverable damages include: 

Economic Damages  

Your economic damages could include: 

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Miscellaneous expenses related to your accident
  • Property damage

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages can include: 

Wrongful Death Damages

Commercial truck accidents are all too often fatal. If you lost a loved one in a truck accident, our team offers our most sincere condolences. We can help you seek justice and fight for the following damages:

  • Medical expenses for any care your loved one needed before they passed
  • Funeral or burial expenses
  • Lost household services
  • Lost financial support
  • Loss of gifts or benefits
  • Lost love, guidance, society, and companionship
  • Loss of intimacy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Grief, sorrow, and mental anguish 

How Long Do I Have to Take Action After a Truck Accident?

CCP § 335.1 limits how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you don’t file within two years of the accident, you risk recovering nothing. The court will likely reject your lawsuit and you’ll need to negotiate with the insurance company for a fair settlement. However, without the threat of a lawsuit as leverage, you will likely need to take what you can get. 

This could leave you to pay tens of thousands out of pocket, especially if you have severe or catastrophic injuries.

We recommend that you call us as soon as possible after a semi-truck accident in Glendale. We can begin representing you immediately. Our personal injury attorneys will manage all relevant deadlines to protect your right to compensation.

Can I Afford Legal Help for My Glendale Truck Crash?

Yes. Our law firm handles cases on a contingency-fee basis. You don’t pay us any upfront fees and our attorney’s fees are contingent upon the outcome of your case. You only pay us if we recover compensation for you. And even then, you don’t pay out of pocket. We take our fees from the compensation you recover.

There’s no risk to you when you enlist our help. 

What Should I Do After a Truck Accident?

What you do after a trucking accident can affect your ability to recover fair compensation:

  • Call 911 if you are able. Ask the dispatcher to send both the police and paramedics to the scene. 
  • If you are able, move your car out of traffic. This can help prevent a secondary accident. If you or a passenger is injured, do not move. You could worsen your injuries. 
  • Exchange information with the truck driver. Do not apologize for the accident or say you are okay until you have had the paramedics or an ER doctor examine you.
  • Let law enforcement do their job. Do not speculate on what the truck driver was doing before or during the accident. They will investigate the accident. If their findings are inaccurate, we can get them corrected. 
  • Allow paramedics to examine you. Many very severe injuries can take hours or days to surface. Your adrenaline could also be masking many symptoms. The paramedics can help identify issues that you may be unaware of, such as a spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, or internal bleeding. 
  • Do not give a recorded statement. In the hours or days after an accident, the trucking company’s insurance adjuster will likely call you to get your side of the story. While they may seem helpful, they are hoping you’ll say something that jeopardizes your case. If they ask for a recorded statement, politely decline and direct any questions to us.
  • Do not accept a settlement offer before we review it. Truck accidents can cost insurance companies hundreds of thousands of dollars. To avoid paying this, it may offer you a quick settlement before you know the extent of your injuries. If you accept a settlement and later learn your injuries are worse than expected, you can’t go back and ask for more. This means you could end up paying tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars out of pocket.
