Tractor Trailer Accident Attorney California

Our lead attorney, Paul E. Maineri has been practicing personal injury law in the Inland Empire for over 20 years. As a result, his firm has developed extraordinary resources on tractor and semi-trucking safety, including a network of experts from around the country.

Injuries sustained in a truck accident are often severe and life-threatening. It is critical to work quickly after a truck accident to file your claim. Our team understands the intricacies of these claims, and we will fight to hold all responsible parties accountable.

Trucking is a strictly regulated industry with multiple laws and rules governing the conduct of drivers and trucking companies.

Insurers who represent trucking companies aggressively defend these types of cases. Let us stand up to the insurance companies for you, using the evidence surrounding the accident to uncover any violations that might have contributed to it. These can include:

Responsible Parties:

As with most types of motor vehicle accidents, the cause of a truck or trailer accident is often due to driver negligence or recklessness. In some cases, truck drivers falsify their credentials and trucking companies do not check drivers’ backgrounds appropriately or sufficiently.

In other cases, a tractor or truck mechanical issue can cause the accident. Negligence on the part of drivers, trucking companies, and manufacturers can all contribute to an accident.

When tractor and semi-truck companies cut corners and break the law to increase their profit margins, it puts everyone else at risk. We will uncover all violations to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.


In almost every tractor-trailer or semi-trucking accident, the driver or their company has violated a local law or federal regulation because of the pressures these companies face to maximize efficiency and profits.

Many drivers must keep up with tight, sometimes unrealistic, deadlines to cover territory quickly.

This can prompt drivers to speed or skip necessary rest stops to meet deadlines.

Driving Logs:

Driver fatigue and exhaustion cause countless trucking accidents. Truck drivers are required to maintain driving logs and are limited to a certain number of consecutive driving hours without rest.  Establishing that a driver was behind the wheel longer than the federally mandated maximum can help prove liability.

After a collision involving a semi, these logs are considered essential evidence, and federal regulations require that they be preserved for a period of six months. If a court order is not obtained for those records within six months following the accident, they can be destroyed.

These limitations make it vital to contact an attorney right away after a tractor or truck accident.

Our team is accessible to our clients, providing them with personalized service, empathy, and loyalty.

We understand the trucking industry and can build a compelling case on your behalf. We will conduct a thorough investigation and gather all pertinent evidence and determine which of the numerous parties involved is responsible for the accident.

Each of our cases is taken on a contingency fee basis. To speak with Paul E. Maineri about how to obtain compensation for serious injuries resulting from a trucking accident, call us at 951.698.4200 or email our firm at for a consultation.
