Has a collision involving a multi-ton truck left you with debilitating injuries, whether you were a pedestrian, bike rider, or in a vehicle?
The sheer size of commercial vehicles makes them extremely dangerous. Injuries suffered in collisions with trucks are generally more serious and more likely to end in a fatality.
Some trucks are subject to enhanced government regulations. Knowledge of these laws and regulations is crucial in determining whether a truck driver and trucking company can be held responsible for your injuries and damages.
Heinrich Law has decades of experience representing motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians who have been seriously injured by tired, distracted, or reckless truck drivers.

A NOTABLE WIN
Our client was a pedestrian struck by a box truck while lawfully crossing the street in Oakland. The driver of the truck, who was in the course and scope of employment at the time of the incident, claimed he was unable to see the client in the crosswalk due to the sun being in his eyes. The client broke her arm and hip, both of which required surgical repair. By thoroughly inspecting the scene and analyzing the sun’s patterns on the day of the incident, Heinrich Law was able to prove the sun could not have been in the trucker’s eyes and there were no visual obstructions that would have prevented the truck driver from seeing our client. The matter resolved prior to the filing of a lawsuit largely because of our extensive pre-litigation investigation and Marjorie Heinrich’s superior negotiating skills, saving the client considerable time and money.
Heinrich Law achieved a confidential pre-litigation settlement of $1,100,000 for our well deserving client.
