If you or a loved one have been seriously injured or killed due to an accident, collision, or crash with a large truck, 18 wheeler, semi or tractor/trailer rig, it is essential for you to immediately contact Ralph Slater, a leading Personal Injury Attorney in Chico, for a free consultation.
Besides basic traffic laws that all drivers must follow, there are federal and state trucking laws for big rig drivers that include restrictions on the number of hours in a given period the operator can drive, and the size and types of loads the operator can carry.
Truck accident cases are time-sensitive: it is important to immediately demand that the trucking company preserve the “Black Box.” Mr. Slater retains a highly experienced accident reconstruction expert who can do ECM-Black Box downloads that will show the truck’s speed, throttle position, brake applications, and engine speed at the time of the accident, among other things.
Bills of lading, trip logs and other documents must also be preserved against destruction, spoliation or loss. The crash expert can prove and demonstrate to a jury that the truck driver was at fault for the accident, not you. Even if you were partially at fault, you may be entitled to a substantial settlement.
Due to the fact that these trucks can weigh from 20,000 to 80,000 pounds or more, truck versus car accidents can cause multiple serious injuries to occupants of cars, such as torn or ruptured ligaments, herniated or ruptured disks, multiple fractures, as well as nerve damage, paralysis, including paraplegia or quadriplegia, and minor, moderate and severe head or brain injury, among other serious and catastrophic injuries.
Ralph Slater set what was a record recovery in California based on all reported verdicts and settlements for any type of paralysis, even though his client was partially at fault for the accident. Insurance companies and trucking company attorneys know Mr. Slater’s name.
Ralph Slater personally handles all types of truck and other accident injury cases on a contingency fee basis; that means you pay nothing unless Mr. Slater first collects money on your behalf. He will never send you a bill, and you do not have to pay any money out of pocket. You get a “No Win – No Pay” attorney-client agreement. Now that’s confidence! Call Ralph Slater NOW at (530) 898-1111 for your Free Initial Consultation to find out if you if you have a case and what it is worth.
