Prioritize Your Health and Safety After a Swift Transportation Truck Crash in California

In the immediate aftermath of a Swift Transportation truck collision, your top priority should be ensuring your safety and well-being. Call 911 to report the accident and request emergency medical assistance if needed. Even if you don’t believe you’ve been seriously injured, it’s essential to undergo a thorough medical evaluation, as some injuries may not be immediately apparent.

Gather Critical Evidence at the Swift Transportation Accident Scene in California

If it’s safe to do so, collect vital evidence at the scene that can support your Swift Transportation accident lawsuit in California:

  • Photos of vehicle damage, accident site, and visible injuries
  • Contact and insurance information for the Swift Transportation driver
  • Names and contact details of any witnesses
  • Police report or incident report number

Understanding FMCSA Regulations and Their Impact on Your Swift Transportation Accident in California

As an interstate trucking company, Swift Transportation must adhere to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. These regulations govern areas such as driver qualifications, hours of service, vehicle maintenance, and cargo securement. Violations of FMCSA regulations can serve as evidence of negligence in your case, as demonstrated in cases like Rodriguez v. Swift Transportation (2017) and Nguyen v. Swift Transportation (2019).

Be Mindful of the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Swift Transportation Accident Lawsuit in California

If you need to file a lawsuit against Swift Transportation, be aware of the statute of limitations. In California, the general statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the accident (California Code of Civil Procedure, Section 335.1). However, this may vary based on the unique circumstances of your case, so it’s crucial to consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
