Why Entrust Your Truck Accident Investigation and Litigation with Baum Hedlund?
Families continue to come to our trucking accident law firm for answers, guidance, and support after their family has been struck by tragedy. We have many years of experience advocating for clients in catastrophic injury and wrongful death litigation arising from serious highway accidents and other commercial vehicle accidents. Our verdicts and settlements demonstrate our dedication to obtaining results. We are respected among former clients and among colleagues.
From our years of experience handling complex truck accident investigation and litigation, we know how to effectively detect negligence and causes of the truck wreck, such as:
- Negligent truck safety
- Negligence in securing cargo
- Truck driver fatigue
- Driver distractions
- Defective road design
- Bad weather
- Failure to enforce training procedures
- Other factors
At Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, our truck accident law firm believes that the responsible parties should be identified and held accountable. We are also committed to advocating for safety improvements that will prevent future harm. There are usually a number of weak links in the chain of events which lead up to an injury or death – negligent truck operators, negligent supervision, poor maintenance, design flaws, failed parts, faulty reporting, etc. Each individual or group responsible for one or more factors may be called upon to pay a portion, or even all, of the compensation due the injured person or family members. Each of those persons or entities may be situated in a different state and the harm may have occurred in yet another state.
Due to the size, nature, frequency of travel, and speeds of trucks, federal and state laws strictly regulate the trucking companies and driver performance to ensure safety for other drivers using the highway system. Many accidents can be traced to violations of these regulations on weight requirements, speed limitations, or restrictions on the number of hours a driver can be on the road without rest. At Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, our truck accident law firm is skilled and knowledgeable in trucking industry laws. Based in Los Angeles, we represent clients throughout Southern California and across the country.
