Trucking & Heavy Equipment Litigation
The attorneys at the Sacramento law firm of Greve, Clifford, Wengel & Paras, LLP represent transportation companies, common carriers, freight haulers, and related transportation facilitators in litigation involving allegations of negligence or reckless misconduct. We also represent transportation manufacturers and distributors of manufactured parts, including trucks, tractors and trailers, and other heavy equipment machinery. Our lawyers have an excellent track record of responding professionally and aggressively in investigating, evaluating and litigating major injury and death cases involving common carriers, heavy machinery, 18-wheelers, and the manufacturers who service and supply these industries.
Our attorneys excel in the representation of insureds in major trucking accidents. Aggressive and reckless driving of smaller motor vehicles in and around large semi-trucks is a frequent cause of accidents involving trucks and automobiles or motorcycles. However, the perceived deep pockets of the trucking companies or the corporations in the case of company-owned vehicles make them attractive targets for lawsuits in hopes of a quick settlement, even when the other driver is to blame.
Whether the other driver was wholly at fault or helped to the cause of the accident through his or her own contributory negligence, our lawyers prepare a strong defense that holds the other driver accountable and does not unfairly lay the burden on the trucking company. We thoroughly investigate each accident to determine whether the cause lies with driver error or some other factor, such as a roadway defect or a defective component in the design or manufacture of one of the vehicles.
We combine our experience in trucking accident cases with our expertise in construction law and litigation to expertly handle accidents involving a variety of heavy machinery, such as backhoes, dozers, dump trucks, excavators, loaders, booms, and forklifts. Our defense extends to owners, operators, and equipment manufacturers who are being implicated in an accident causing serious personal injury or property damage.
In addition to defending construction contractors and equipment manufacturers, we also represent persons injured in accidents involving heavy equipment, including operators in cases of products liability as well as third-parties injured in cases of negligence.
