Suing Unlicensed Truck Drivers In California

Driver's licenses are important for all motorists because they demonstrate that a driver has showed at least a base level of competency behind the wheel and an elementary understanding of the rules of the road. For commercial drivers, a license is even more critical as they are held to a higher standard of safety and professionalism.

When Unlicensed Truckers Cause Accidents

When unlicensed drivers get behind the wheel of an 80,000-pound tractor-trailer, the results can be tragic. At Rosenthal & Kreeger LLP in Roseville, we have more than 25 years of experience seeking compensation for the victims of truck accidents. We can help you hold negligent truck drivers and trucking companies accountable for the damage they caused you or a loved one.

Led by attorney David Rosenthal, our team diligently pursues compensation for people who suffered injuries in accidents caused by unlicensed drivers. In these cases, the lack of a commercial driver's license (CDL) for the driver is a clear sign of negligence. The driver is negligent for driving a commercial vehicle without a proper license, and the trucking company is negligent for allowing its trucks to be driven by a driver who has not met the standards required to obtain a CDL.

We hold all negligent parties accountable in these matters, pursuing a verdict or settlement that fully compensates truck accident victims for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages.
