Truck Accidents

Trucks can cause devastating injuries, especially to passenger vehicles and pedestrians. If you or a loved one was injured by a truck, it is important to know that you have rights and Turbin Chu Heidt can help protect them. At our Honolulu personal injury firm, we are proud to offer over 35 years of extensive legal experience in representing clients throughout Oahu. We may be able to help you, too.

We have obtained over $10 million dollars in compensation for our past clients.

Our firm will dedicate all necessary time to helping you receive the compensation that you deserve. While no two accidents are ever alike, there are some underlying causes of trucking accidents which Turbin Chu Heidt will review to determine liability and the maximum amount of compensation that may be available to you.

Causes of truck accidents that call for legal action:

  • The driver — In some cases, drivers may be operating their vehicles while fatigued or under the influence. If it is determined that the operator was negligent or reckless in any matter, they may be responsible.
  • The owner of the vehicle — If the driver was not the owner, the management company that is responsible for the vehicle and all vehicle maintenance will be questioned. Poor maintenance may lead to serious accidents.
  • The manufacturer of a faulty product — Brake failure, improper steering, hitches, or loading of a truck could lead to jackknifing down steep grades and other serious complications. Manufacturers and loaders could be held responsible.
  • The entity responsible for the roadway the vehicle was traveling on — There is plenty of construction work on Honolulu freeways and poorly maintained roads or improper signage could have led to a serious accident.
