San Diego Truck Accident Attorney

San Francisco Tractor Trailer Crash Lawyer

Campbell, Lauter & Murphy has extensive experience in litigating trucking accidents. Due to the inherent nature of a truck's size, most of these accidents involve serious personal injuries, as well as multiple vehicles. We are familiar with how to mount an investigation in a trucking accident case, including checking on driver training, and driver inattention due to sleep deprivation. The firm is an active member of the Defense Research Institute's Subcommittee on Trucking Litigation.

Trucking accidents are legally complex accident cases. Trucks and tractor-trailers are licensed and regulated by the authorities, and the drivers must have special licenses. We will examine all the issues including whether the appropriate licenses are in effect and whether the equipment has been inspected, and maintained.

We know how to evaluate your claim, and are skilled at negotiating for the highest possible settlement of your claim. Most importantly, we are experienced trial attorneys with a track record of taking cases of every size to trial when necessary.

Representative Cases Handled

Clayton v. Blalock

(San Diego Superior Court)

In this case, the firm represented the owner of a truck that was involved in a seven vehicle accident on Interstate #5 in Glendale, California. Our client's truck was impacted by a truck in the #4 lane - that then caused our client's tractor-trailer to uncontrollably skid and impact five passenger vehicles alongside the guardrail/medium strip - after it traveled across lanes #1 and #2. All cases were settled prior to trial, with the last case being settled the day before the start of trial. Most of the damages were paid by the truck that started the accident. Although the plaintiff in the last case to settle had more than $1,000,000 in past and future medical expenses, our client's insurance carrier successfully settled that claim for $50,000. Both the client and the carrier were pleased with the result with the results that were achieved by Partner John Campbell, just before the last/biggest case went to trial.

Marika v. North American Van Lines

(San Diego Superior Court)

CLM successfully defended North American Van Lines (a self-insured) as a result of a serious personal injury. One of the client's large tractor-trailer vans struck a young boy on his way to school, severing his leg just above the ankle joint. The driver never saw the young boy - who went into the crosswalk on his bicycle at a time when the truck had already started its wide turn. The young boy was a model plaintiff. He recovered to the point where he went back out for the wrestling team at Poway High School following the injury, wrestling with his prosthesis. The case was settled on the verge of trial because of the emotional issues involved. All parties were pleased with the settlement that was achieved.

The above list is representative of some of the cases that have been handled by Campbell, Lauter & Murphy and its partners. For more information, please contact CLM directly.
