When Disaster Strikes In The Harbor

The Port of Long Beach in Southern California is home to one of the world's busiest seaports. It's a gateway for trade with Asia, and nearly one out of every five loaded shipping containers in the U.S. moves through it. All this shipping traffic makes it incredibly active — and incredibly dangerous.

Truck accidents are common, especially when safety measures get overlooked in the hustle and bustle of business. Pedestrians also end up injured by drivers who are rushing to complete a job instead of watching where they are going. The serious injuries that result can alter lives forever.

Recovery Begins With Us

At Westrup & Associates, our attorneys know that cases involving harbor transportation are complex and time-consuming. More than one party may ultimately be responsible. We can use our more than 40 years of combined experience to find a resolution to your personal injury claim.

We know that insurance companies play games with injury victims and try to push them into premature settlements. They may try to shift the blame for an accident to the victim, when the truth is that the trucker who caused the accident was tired, in a hurry and negligent. We look for evidence that a driver violated traffic rules, was fatigued, or became distracted.

Your primary responsibility after an accident is to try to heal. Let us handle the job of collecting evidence in your case and pursuing all the compensation you are due. Depending on the nature of your injuries, you may be eligible for:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost future earnings capacity
  • Loss of companionship
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
