Palm Springs Truck Accident Attorneys

Pursuing Justice on Your Behalf

Being injured in a truck accident can be overwhelming. When the accident was caused by the negligence of another party, the situation can become increasingly stressful. If you have been the victim of a truck accident and believe that you have the right to pursue legal action, our team of Palm Springs truck accident lawyers is prepared to assist you in our free consultation.

Due to the large size and heavy weight of trucks, truck accidents can lead to substantial injuries and even death. Vehicles of this size are more difficult to navigate and harder to slow down. Since it is more challenging to operate a truck than a normal-size passenger vehicle, it is important that the driver possesses a high level of skills.

Who is liable in truck accidents?

Liability in truck accidents can be more difficult to prove than normal car accidents. This is because there are multiple parties that can be held liable for truck accidents.

Possible responsible parties for a truck accident include:

  • The truck driver
  • The owner of the truck
  • The manufacturer of the truck
  • The manufacturer of the truck part that contributed to the cause of the accident
  • The person or company that leased the truck from the owner
  • The shipper or loader of the truck's cargo

While there are many parties that can be found liable for a truck accident, the responsibility is often placed upon the driver of the truck. Because truck drivers work long hours during the day and night, they are likely to experience sleep deprivation, exhaustion, and fatigue. As a result, their ability to properly operate a truck decreases, while the chance of an accident increases.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • They made me feel comfortable.

    “I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. The firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need.

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • After Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”
