Motor vehicle accidents can be traumatic, and it can be challenging to understand what is happening. When you are involved in an accident with a truck, the injuries and damages are often much worse than with other vehicles on the road. This is often due to the size differences in the two-vehicle types.
Trucks are much larger and weigh more than the average passenger vehicle. The injuries and damages are so catastrophic that some victims’ lives are entirely altered as a result. You may think it will be impossible to go up against a truck company and their insurance company, but it is not if you have the right Oakland truck accident attorney.

It is essential not to make a statement to the insurance company as they are looking for even the smallest detail to lower your claim. Before speaking to the insurance company, contact an Oakland truck accident attorney to discuss your legal options.
