Campbell Truck Accident Attorneys
Personalized Representation Combined with Legal Acumen
Although truck drivers must undergo training to operate large vehicles with huge cargo in tow, driving such vehicles can still be quite risky, especially if negligence is present. There are many significant risk factors that these large trucks— which include cargo, garbage, flatbed, tanker, and 18-wheeler trucks— pose to other automobiles on the road.
It is no secret that being injured in a truck accident can have extremely harmful consequences: thousands of people are injured and killed in truck accidents in the United States every single year. In addition to medical costs, these accidents can also have enormously negative impacts on a victim’s finances and mental health.
For these reasons, Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP is happy to be a resource for those injured in truck accidents. We want to help you get back on your feet and hold at-fault parties accountable for their actions through a personal injury claim.

Primary Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents in Campbell aren’t that much different from truck accidents anywhere else in the United States. They can be caused by distracted driving, faulty mechanics in the truck itself, or a failure to abide by traffic laws and safety protocol. Employers are sometimes to blame, especially if they did not take the time to adequately train their truck drivers, or if they overwork them to the point of fatigue.
Seeking Compensation for a Truck Crash
If you have been in an auto accident before, you might already know how the negligent party might try to lay the blame elsewhere to avoid fault and its associated costs. At-fault parties in truck accidents often attempt the same tactic, but truck drivers also have their employers and their company lawyers to dispute responsibility.
If you or someone you love was injured in a truck accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our team at Caputo & Van Der Walde LLP is here to help. We can listen to your story, assess your situation, and create a legal strategy to seek justice and compensation from the liable party.
Truck accident victims may be eligible to be compensated for damages including but not limited to:
- Medical expenses

We are committed to advocating for our clients, and we are so confident in our abilities, we won’t charge any fees unless we win your case.
