Truck Accidents

If your life has spiraled out of control because of someone else’s negligent actions, experienced representation is paramount. Truck companies are often owned by national carriers with extensive resources at their disposal. They team up with experienced lawyers and insurance adjusters highly sophisticated in trying to distance truck companies from liability.

More Than 20 Years of Experience Taking On National Carriers

I am truck accident lawyer Earl L. Jiang of Fremont, with more than 20 years of experience advocating for trucking accident victims in Fremont and throughout San Jose. I do not shy away from taking on large, powerful national carriers. In fact, this is part of my DNA. I know the tactics trucking companies and their insurance companies use to try separating themselves from liability. They may claim to be on your side, but what you really need is an experienced lawyer with no ulterior motives who understands semi truck injury accidents.

If you or your loved one was in a trucking accident, you may be surprised with how quickly you are offered a settlement. Your first reaction may be to accept the offer to cover all the bills you have incurred. Before you do anything, contact my law firm. I will protect you from a settlement that fails taking into account all the expenses you are expected to incur.

Determining the Cause of 18-Wheeler Accidents

National carriers handle 18-wheeler accidents like a well-oiled machine. Immediately following an auto accident, the truck carrier’s insurance adjusters often respond to the scene of the accident. They may appear very sympathetic but their purpose is to protect their own pocketbooks. Valuable evidence pointing to liability may disappear. Make sure you have an experienced lawyer in your corner prepared to protect you against any attempts to limit your financial recovery.

This has been my focus for more than 20 years. I take swift action to determine the cause of personal injury accidents. I will work with you to understand what you may recall just moments before the collision occurred. I can also review police reports or witness statements to try and understand the circumstances involved. When liability is unclear, I consult accident scene reconstructionists who can piece together accident scene evidence to try and identify a cause. I also review log records, fuel tickets and maintenance reports when seeking to determine liability such as:

  • Truck driver liability: speeding, drunk driving, texting and driving, failing to take appropriate rest breaks or failing to properly load commercial vehicles
  • Truck carrier liability: encouraging drivers to make unrealistic deadlines, hiring unqualified drivers, failing to properly train new drivers or overlooking standard maintenance requirements

I am highly familiar with the state and federal regulations truck carriers and drivers are required to follow. If your life was put at risk because corners were cut, I will make them pay. All of my trucking accident claims are prepared with enough evidence to prove fault. I will also consult your doctor to identify the type of medical care you will need in the long term. I will go the extra mile to help you obtain the full amount of compensation you are entitled to for any medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
