Understanding the Causes of Pickup Accidents

Pickup trucks are similar to passenger cars in many ways, but there are also some unique accident risks associated with them. Our firm handles all types of auto accident cases involving pickup trucks, including but not limited to accidents caused by the following circumstances:

  • Unsecured Items: When items in a pickup's bed are not secured properly, they can fall off when the vehicle goes around a sharp curve or accelerates suddenly. Heavy, unsecured items can also shift suddenly, causing the driver to lose control.
  • Swerving Trailers: Pickup trucks are often used to pull trailers holding boats, ATVs, and other recreational vehicles. If a pickup driver is not careful while towing a trailer, the trailer can swerve or even jackknife, causing a potentially serious accident.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
