If you are involved a truck accident there are steps you can take to ensure you have necessary evidence. In the video below attorney Ruiz gives info on what to do at your accident scene:

If you are involved in a commercial vehicle accident it's in your best interest not to talk to anyone at the trucking company including its investigators, its insurance company, any of its employees, or its lawyers. Trucking companies will aggressively fight 18-wheeler large truck claims and will try to get a statement from you that they can use to fight your case against them.

Trucking companies will use every trick in their book including destroying the black box, driver's logs, GPS data, and possibly the truck if they think the evidence will hurt their case. It is vital that you get an experienced truck accident lawyer working on your case immediately after the wreck to prevent the trucking company from destroying evidence that could be used against them.


When you contact truck accident lawyer Ruiz about your wreck, he and his staff go to work for you right away taking time-critical actions such as sending notice letters to the trucking company demanding that all evidence be preserved, running a complete background and criminal history of the truck driver, and investigating the trucking company’s insurance, licenses and safety record. And all of this is done at no cost to you.


Getting Properly Compensated For Your Injuries

If you were injured or a family member was killed in a crash caused by a truck driver, the Ruiz Law Firm can help you get the restitution you deserve. Truck drivers can be held legally liable for any injuries that result from a violation of state or federal safety regulations, and for any injuries that occur as a result of unsafe or careless driving.

The truck driver isn't the only one who may be required to pay damages, as trucking companies are liable for the actions of employees on the job as well as for any negligence in their policies such as a failure to properly train drivers.

You may also be eligible to file lawsuits against; the company that leased the truck, the manufacturer of the truck and/or trailer, the company that services the truck, and more. But you may need a competent truck accident lawyer to fight for you in order to properly assess snd establish your claim.


Whether you take action against the driver, the trucking company, or other responsible party, the Ruiz Law Firm can help you get compensated for:

  • Medical costs, including any necessary future medical expenses
  • Lost income if absence from work or reduction in earning ability results from injuries
  • Emotional distress/mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Deprivation of the benefits of a family relationship due to injuries
  • The wrongful death of an immediate family member
  • Future earnings of a deceased spouse
  • Damages to your vehicle or other property
