Truck Accidents

Helping Injured Truck Accident Victims Recover from Big Rig Accidents.

Truck AccidentThe legal team at Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, LLP, works hard to obtain the fair and just compensation that you deserve. Our trucking accident law firm has successfully litigated more than a dozen cases against trucking companies resulting in verdicts and settlements of more than $100 million while helping those left harmed or without a loved one in a position to better heal from their loss. We have represented numerous families who have lost loved ones due to the dangerous condition of highways along with the negligence of truck drivers, trucking companies, and truck manufacturers.

As proud as we are of the financial compensation that we get for our injured clients, we are just as proud of the fact that our highways and roadways are safer for motorists after we get done with a case. Our skilled trial attorneys do so by helping truck accident victims recover full compensation for their injuries and by pushing for new laws and regulations that increase safety standards for the trucking industry.

Making Highway 17 Safer for Motorists.

In securing a $9.5 million wrongful death settlement for the family of the victim of a big rig truck accident on Highway 17, the law firm of Corsiglia McMahon & Allard also worked to protect the safety of all motorists. The settlement ensures that the owner of the trucking company will go to jail if he does not obey trucking laws. In addition, we continue to push for state legislation that will require all truck drivers to receive mandatory behind the wheel training before becoming licensed.

It is impossible to put a price on roadway safety. Money, however, is sometimes the only way to get the attention of transport companies and owner-operators. We have gained a formidable reputation in the insurance and trucking industries -- they know we aren’t afraid to go to trial, and won’t stop fighting until we secure fair and just compensation for our clients.

More than $100 million in Proven ResultsWhy You Need an Experienced Truck Injury Accident Attorney

It is important to understand that many trucking companies have their own accident response teams that are dispatched immediately to the accident scene. These accident response teams start their own investigation, collect evidence, and start developing a defense with well-financed law firms against your truck injury accident claim.

At Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, LLP, we take a two-pronged approach to truck accident cases. First, we focus on our clients and on protecting their rights to maximum compensation. This includes fighting aggressively against insurance and trucking companies, obtaining valuable black box data and evidence, and employing a full team of accident re-constructionists, industry experts, lawyers, and support staff to take the case to trial if necessary. Our primary goal is helping accident victims receive the compensation they deserve after a devastating and catastrophic trucking accident.

Secondly, we use our financial resources to fight for change within the trucking industry. We use financial and legal incentives to encourage California trucking companies and drivers to improve their standards and safety protocols. We know that in doing so, we can protect even more drivers from harm and devastation.

Common Types of Trucking Accidents

When a large commercial big rig or semi-truck tries to stop suddenly, the results can be catastrophic. Commercial vehicles need more time to come to a complete stop and when they’re forced to slam on the brakes they run the risk of jackknifing, rolling over, or slamming into other vehicles. Some of the most common types of trucking accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Rear end trucking accidents
  • Jackknife trucking accidents
  • Rollover trucking accidents
  • Underride trucking accidents
  • Head-on trucking accidents
  • T-bone trucking accidents
Dealing with Trucking Accident Injuries

Unfortunately, minimum insurance requirements for truck drivers haven’t changed in decades, but medical expenses and health insurance costs have skyrocketed. After a trucking accident, injured accident victims are likely to experience severe and life-threatening injuries that could result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in expenses. The majority of auto insurance policies won’t be able to pay even a fraction of these costs, which is why it’s important to have an experienced trucking accident lawyer on your side from the very start. At Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, LLP, our lawyers have helped injured trucking accident victims recover the money needed to pay for treating their injuries, including but not limited to:

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.
