Sacramento Truck Accident Attorneys
Injured in one of the more than 400,000 truck accidents that occur every year? We are here to help.
It’s said that the trucking industry is the lifeblood of the US economy. Without it, the country would stand still. Sadly, this leads to greedy companies pushing drivers well beyond their limits. There were 411,000 truck accidents recorded in 2014 despite there only being 3.4 million trucks. The sheer size of each tractor trailer means most accidents result in serious injuries or death.
Amerio Law Firm are respected Sacramento truck accident attorneys that know how to hold the other party responsible. Because local regulations vary by state and are very complex, it’s important you choose a local legal firm with experience trying cases in the Sacramento court system. Our law firm will immediately begin collecting evidence, contacting the companies involved, and building your case.
We help you fight the big trucking companies
The liability for the accident is often with the trucking company, not the driver. Their regulations, driving policies, and heavy handed employment tactics often lead to dangerous driving conditions.
This means a powerful insurance company will be representing what is sure to be a massive nationwide trucking outfit. You need a powerful firm that knows how to bargain with the insurance companies and doesn’t back down to intimidation. Over our decades of combined experience, we know all of the tricks they try to pull.
If you’ve been injured in a truck accident or have tragically lost a family member in a senseless act of negligence, you’ve got to get a team of legal experts to fight for the settlement you’re legally entitled to. Contact us today for your free consultation.
Only experts can prove fault
Since truck laws are so unique, it is even more difficult to prove fault in a case. Our team of lawyers knows what to look for, and, more importantly, knows which pieces of evidence are likely to get the courts on your side. The idea is that since truck drivers are handling a heavier piece of machinery, their employers must be held to a higher standard. We can hold a company responsible for:
- Poor hiring practices
- Poor maintenance practices
- Poor record keeping practices
- Too much time on the job for their truckers
- And more

If you’ve been injured in an accident or have lost a loved one, we can represent you on your path to receiving a settlement. We will help you recover damages for your:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Time lost at work
- Loss of earning ability
- Loss of a loved one
- Strain on relationships
- Damages to your car
And more. Amerio Law Firm focuses on making you whole again, not on taking the fastest route to a pay check for us.
