Palm Springs Truck Accident Attorneys

Representing victims of truck accidents for over 40 years

Even for the most responsible and cautious drivers, commercial trucks can be a dangerous hazard on roads and highways. Unfortunately, because of the enormous size of these vehicles, accidents involving them often result in passenger vehicles and their occupants suffering the most damage.

Every year, thousands of drivers and pedestrians are injured in trucking accidents with life-altering injuries. Many will require ongoing medical care and rehabilitation, and some will suffer life-long complications. Make sure that you have the financial resources to pay for your medical care and the cost of living by filing a claim.

If you have been injured in a commercial trucking accident, you may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and more. At Gilbert & Bourke, LLP, we've helped dozens of clients and our legal team is ready to help you.

Contact our experienced Palm Springs truck accident lawyers to discuss the details of your injuries and accident. We offer FREE office consults.

Dedicated to Holding Drivers & Trucking Companies Accountable

The state and federal government understand how dangerous trucks can potentially be, and has put in place a set of rules and regulations for trucking companies and their drivers to follow. Sadly, truck drivers and trucking companies do not often abide by these federal regulations.

In the trucking industry, there is pressure to meet deadlines and earn higher profits - and doing so requires that drivers work longer hours and for trucks to accommodate more cargo. But federal rules place limits on the number of hours a driver can be on the road, the maximum cargo weight, and more.

Common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Overweight cargo
  • Failure to see other drivers when turning or changing lanes
  • Violation of speed limits and traffic laws
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Improper loading
  • Undertrained drivers
  • Poor vehicle maintenance or defective vehicle parts

If a truck driver, trucking company, or another third-party company violated any federal rules, our personal injury attorneys at Gilbert & Bourke have the knowledge, skills, and resources to hold them accountable.

Why You Should Hire a Lawyer After a Commercial Truck Accident

If you have been seriously injured by a commercial truck, working with an experienced lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. At times, it can be challenging to navigate through the legal system, especially when it comes to commercial trucking accidents.

A skilled truck accident attorney can investigate the accident and gather evidence to build a strong case on your behalf, including speaking with witnesses, obtaining accident reports and medical records, and consulting with experts in trucking industry regulations. With a lawyer on your side, you have a better chance of securing the compensation you deserve for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from the accident.

Is the Insurance Company Denying or Minimizing Your Claim?

Commercial trucking accidents can be very complicated, especially due to powerful insurance providers behind truck companies. Many times, the insurance companies will try to either blame you for the accident and deny your claim altogether, or do everything in their power to pressure you into settling for the smallest amount possible.

This is simply unacceptable, especially since your injuries were a direct result of the truck driver or trucking company's actions.

At Gilbert & Bourke, our Palm Springs truck accident injury lawyers have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. We are ready to fight for a fair settlement that includes the full costs of your injuries, including economic and non-economic damages. If negotiations with adjustors do not work out, we are ready and willing to go to court and fight for your compensation.
