California is the most dangerous state in the nation for truck accidents and is home to some of the most dangerous roads in the country. San Jose is no exception to this rule with freeways like I-280 running right down the heart of the city.
Trucking accidents are common in San Jose just due to the sheer number of vehicles that travel on the roads every day. Commercial trucks commonly use these routes to transport products and the roads are also full of daily commuters from the bay area.
If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident that was caused due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Why GJEL Handles Truck Accident Cases
With so many commercial trucks on the roads every day and deadlines to meet with businesses, trucking companies sometimes overwork their drivers or are responsible for putting them in bad situations. Whether it’s exhaustion, distracted driving, or another reason you have a reasonable right to be safe while driving on the road.
One of the reasons our firm takes on so many truck accident cases is to help change the laws around preventing these accidents. At GJEL we’re committed to keeping the roads as safe as we can and since the firm was founded in 1972, we have handled hundreds of these cases.
Since this time we have maintained a 99% case success rate and recovered over $950 Million Dollars for our clients.
Hiring a personal injury attorney after an accident allows you to fight big companies who may have otherwise pressured you into making a quick settlement.
