Have you been injured in a serious 18-wheeler accident?
Personal injury lawyer Moses Yneges at The Accident Injury Law Center wants to be your Orange County truck accident attorney. If you have been seriously injured by a large commercial truck you may be entitled to compensation.
While any vehicular accident can cause serious injuries, few are as severe as those resulting from major truck accidents. Big rig trucks are massive and carry significant weight, especially if carrying thousands of pounds of cargo or materials. As a result, these trucks can cause significant damage and injuries when they crash into regular-sized vehicles.
Seeking Financial Compensation for Your Injuries
A personal injury claim will hold the individual or party responsible for the injuries you incurred. In addition, filing a claim will enhance the chances that you will receive maximum compensation. Don’t assume that the company that owns the truck that hit you, or their insurance company, will have your best interest in mind. The at-fault party and their insurance company will only be thinking of themselves, not you. This is why you should have an attorney to assist you with your truck accident claim.
Common Injuries Resulting from Truck Accidents
Depending on the extent of your injuries, you might require immediate and continuous medical attention. Here are a few injuries that can be caused by large trucks on the roadway.
Bruises and Lacerations
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries
Neck & Back Injuries
Soft Tissue Injuries (ex: Whiplash)
Experienced personal injury lawyer, Mr. Yneges can help you receive fair compensation for medical care, loss of income, rehabilitative care, vehicle damage, and pain and suffering.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Trucking accidents happen for a variety of reasons, such as the following:
- Non-Performance: These are drivers that drink and drive, and that fall asleep at the wheel.
- Recognition: These drivers are distracted, such as those texting behind the wheel.
- Decision: Some driver errors come down to bad choices like speeding or tailgating.
- Performance: Others may just be bad drivers who overcompensate in reaction, causing a crash, personal injury, and perhaps wrongful death.
The following list represents the top ten factors for trucking accidents, per the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
- Problems with the Brakes
- Interrupting the Flow of Traffic
- Use of Prescription Drugs
- Speeding Too Fast for Road Conditions
- Unfamiliar with the Road
- Roadway Problems
- Forced to Stop Pre-Crash
- Use of OTC (Over the Counter) Drugs
- Lack of Proper Surveillance
- Tired Driver
No matter which individual or organization is liable for your trucking accident, Mr. Yneges can help you obtain fair compensation for your injuries or wrongful death.
