Burbank Truck Accident Attorneys

Burbank Truck Accident Lawyers

Truck accidents are common in California. When a large commercial truck and a passenger vehicle are involved in an accident, the smaller vehicle and its occupants tend to suffer the most damage and harm. In fact, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, most people who are killed in large truck wrecks are those in passenger vehicles. Given their size and power, large trucks can inflict an enormous amount of damage on smaller vehicles.

If you have suffered injuries in a truck accident in Burbank, California, truck accident attorney Joshua Glotzer is here to help. At Glotzer & Leib, LLP, we have over 20 years of experience helping truck accident victims obtain the compensation they deserve.

Why You Need a Truck Accident Attorney

Given the severity of the injuries that drivers and passengers may suffer in truck accidents, legal action is almost always necessary following a truck wreck. Unfortunately, however, trucking companies and their insurers understand how dangerous large trucks can be, so they do everything they can to protect themselves against legal claims. These companies often use their power, size, and influence to intimidate truck accident victims into accepting unfair settlements or to prevent victims from obtaining compensation altogether.

Fortunately, if you’ve been hurt in an accident, you don’t have to sit back and allow yourself to be victimized. When you hire an experienced truck accident lawyer to take on your case, you significantly increase your odds of a successful outcome. At Glotzer & Leib, LLP, our experienced personal injury attorneys routinely take on large trucking companies to help accident victims obtain the compensation they deserve. If you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, we will fight for your right to obtain financial compensation for your injuries.

      “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

      His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”
