The Inland Empire depends upon the trucks that transport goods to and from our cities to make our region a commerce hub for the entire southwest region of the country. But when a truck driver operates carelessly or is working with defective or negligently maintained equipment, serious injuries and fatalities can ensue. Because of our congested roads and the tendency of many in the trucking industry to place profits over safety, truck accidents and fatalities are an all-too-common event in the Inland Empire and throughout the surrounding areas.
When serious injury or death results from a truck accident, McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP is here to help you and your family determine your legal options and, should you retain our services, work with you to win your maximum financial recovery owed under California law for your losses. We have recovered over $1 million on behalf of more than 10 clients in truck accidents, and are prepared to do whatever it takes to win full recovery in your truck accident case.

Providing Immediate Counsel After Your Truck Accident
A truck accident is obviously a colossally shocking event – occurring without warning and in a matter of seconds – and the hours and days after a truck accident are often full of trauma, intense anxiety, and turmoil. And while making sure you and family members get the emergency medical attention you need is and should be your first priority, reaching out to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible is often critical for maximizing your chances for full recovery.
Trucking companies have attorneys on standby whose mission is to avoid liability or minimize payouts by attempting to blame the accident on the injured victims. As such, it is important for you to take the first steps to counter those actions and build your own case for recovery. When you contact us and involve one of our Ontario truck accident lawyers, we will immediately begin the process of proving fault against all liable defendants – including drivers, employers, truck owners, trucking companies, manufacturers, and servicers – by collecting evidence from the scene of the accident as well as medical and eyewitness evidence.
What Causes Trucking Accidents?
Common causes of trucking accident which support a victim’s recovery (even when the victim may have been partially at fault in causing the accident) include:
- Defective truck parts
- Drowsy driving (many truck drivers work 80+ hours a week)
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Improper lane changes
- Improperly loaded trucks
- Improperly maintained trucking equipment
- Overloaded trucks
- Underride accidents
Our personal injury team can work with your medical caregivers, technical experts, and others to build a case for your full recovery for all medical bills resulting from your trucking accident, pain and suffering over your lifetime, lost income, and wrongful death damages.
