Stockton Truck Accident Attorneys
Real Attorneys Helping Real People
Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC is known in Stockton as a law firm that stands up for people in need. Ever since we opened our doors in 1989, our focus has been to provide excellent legal representation that is paired with genuine compassion and concern for our clients’ wellbeing. If you’ve been hit by a reckless, exhausted, or drunk truck driver, then we would like to get the chance to show you the same level of legal service that we have shown for countless others.
Severe Injuries Suffered in Truck Accidents
There is almost no such thing as a minor truck accident. Due to the enormous size of commercial trucks, they can inflict devastation on any smaller vehicle they strike. It is common for people who are hit by a big rig to suffer catastrophic, life-changing injuries.
Truck accidents often cause such injuries as:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord damage
- Permanent scarring
Value of a Truck Accident Case
When you are dealing with the financial aftermath of a truck accident, the only silver lining might be knowing that the trucker and their employer could be responsible for all your damages. The key is making them pay for everything through a successful truck accident claim. But first, you have to know how much they owe you.
Our Stockton truck accident attorneys have decades of collective legal experience working on high-value cases like yours. We can look for various damages that you are owed and carefully calculate them. We don’t want to leave even a single penny unclaimed.
The value of your truck accident case depends on your damages, such as:
- Medical bills for past and future treatments
- Prescription medication costs
- Lost and unearned wages in the past and the future
- Pain and suffering you have endured
- Permanent disabilities you must now live with
- And more
Typically, the worse you have been injured, the higher the value of your case – and the more the opposition will push back. If you’ve been severely injured in a truck accident, then please do not hesitate to call us at (209) 255-6849 to get legal help on your side right away.
Can You Sue the Trucking Company, Too?
The legal rule of respondeat superior makes employers liable for mistakes and accidents caused by their employees’ negligence. If you were hit by a trucker who is an employee of the trucking company that they were representing at the time of the accident, then you might be able to name their employer as a liable party in your claim or lawsuit. However, if the truck driver who hit you was acting as an independent contractor at the time, then there might not be a way to involve their employer.
Being able to name a truck driver’s employer as an additional defendant can be incredibly beneficial, so it is worth exploring that option. With multiple defendants, there are multiple insurance policies to file against, which can help ensure you get full compensation.
Call & Ask About Our Contingency Fees
You don’t have to worry about being able to afford our Stockton truck accident attorneys. We offer contingency fees when working on a personal injury case, which means we do not get paid unless we end your claim with a settlement or award. Taking the convenience of our service a step further, we also pay for additional expenses upfront, like costs associated with hiring specialists for expert testimonies. It is all part of the Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC experience that stays focused on your satisfaction and recovery.
Let’s talk about your case. Please dial (209) 255-6849 today.
