Drunk Driving Truck Accident Lawyers

Did an intoxicated driver of a large truck cause serious injury to you or a family member in an accident? Have you lost a loved one after a careless drunk driver lost control? If so, you deserve compensation for the pain and suffering you and your family have endured, and Law Offices of Yvonne M. Fraser is here to ensure that you are not left to face the aftermath of this horrible tragedy by yourself. Truck drivers are trained to operate their large motor vehicles safely and must adhere to strict driving regulations. Unlike other drivers, operators of large trucks are above the legal limit if their blood alcohol content is higher than 0.04%. For most people, that means they will be over the legal limit after one drink. The law is rigid because large semi-trucks and 18-wheelers are heavy vehicles and can weigh 80,000 pounds when their trailers are fully loaded. If one of these trucks loses control and cause an accident, the results can be catastrophic.

If you have been forced to endure pain and suffering after a drunk driver crashed their rig into your vehicle, you may be eligible to file a claim to secure the financial compensation you deserve. Law Offices of Yvonne M. Fraser is dedicated to helping protect the rights of families in Oceanside and California whose lives were disrupted by the negligent actions of an intoxicated driver. The high cost of medical bills, lost work wages, and physical and emotional trauma that accidents cause can be overwhelming for many families. We believe that the truck driver, the company that hired the driver, and the restaurant, bar, or store that served the driver alcohol should be held liable for the accident that is now causing you and your family significant discomfort.

Our firm has a strong background in the medical field, and we understand the severity of injuries that victims sustain when they are involved in collisions with large trucks. The fact that the truck driver was under the influence of alcohol is beyond unacceptable, and we will not tolerate the injustice that you are being put through without a fight.

How Will I Be Able to Prove My Claim?

Hiring a qualified lawyer who is experienced with drunk driving accidents is the first step in proving your claim. A knowledgeable drunk driving truck accident lawyer will be able to gather the evidence you need to make a convincing case. The driver will need to be questioned about their use of drugs and alcohol on the day of the accident. Medical evidence and a toxicology report will be obtained to establish proof that they were operating their truck while under the influence. Credit card records, security camera footage, and the truck’s black box information are useful in determining where and how the driver consumed or obtained their alcohol. A lawyer from Law Offices of Yvonne M. Fraser will be able to use all of this information to verify your claim.
