Efficient California Truck Accident Law Firm Protecting Your Rights

The knowledge and skill you need to fight for compensation

The nature of commercial trucking poses a uniquely dangerous potential for accident-related injuries and damages. Truckers often drive for long periods of time with minimal sleep. The pressures of the job combined with the impaired state of driving without adequate rest can cause serious accidents. Other causes for trucking accidents include driver error, intoxication and equipment failure. The Law Office of Robert B. Kopelson has more than 42 years of experience in this area of the law. As an established San Jose truck accident lawyer, I can make sure that those liable are held accountable for their actions.

Many parties other than the driver may be held responsible for the accident, including:

  • Truck manufacturers
  • Part manufacturers
  • Mechanics


Commercial vehicle owners who fail to enforce regulations properly or supervise their drivers may also be held liable for injuries incurred as a result of their negligence.

Building your case carefully and effectively

The level of damage and serious injuries that may result from truck accidents can devastate victims and their families physically, emotionally and financially. Due to the large size of commercial trucks, a simple act of negligence can cause a major accident. If you have been injured in a truck accident, you need a San Jose truck accident lawyer who is able to hold the parties at fault liable. The Law Office of Robert B. Kopelson is a dedicated truck accident law firm in San Jose that goes the extra mile to get you the recovery you may be entitled to. The excellent feedback my firm has received from clients and fellow attorneys and the achievement of millions in clients’ recoveries speak to the positive, effective legal experience I have provided for more than 42 years.

Conducting a thorough investigation

To prepare a winning case, I conduct a comprehensive investigation of the accident, including putting together a reconstruction of the accident, identifying any violations on the part of the driver and determining the extent of the expenses arising from the injuries. In addition, I take an in-depth look into the driver’s legal compliance, investigating his or her insurance coverage, license validity, adherence to restrictions on driving time and completion of safety-related programs.
