San Bernardino Truck Accident Lawyer

The trucking industry is one of California's booming sectors, and statistics prove that within a couple of years, its total revenue has exceeded $790 billion. This has made the companies strive to stay ahead of the competition by ensuring they have more trucks on the road than ever.

One of the areas affected by this commercial truck traffic is the route running through San Bernardino county. However, this has also led to a rise in the cases of truck accidents in the county. A local truck accident lawyer can help you seek compensation after such an accident.

Common Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents

Trucks are large and heavy; thus, their accidents are the most devastating types of vehicular accidents and lead to serious casualties and deaths. The following are some types of injuries that may be sustained from a truck accident:

Spinal cord injuries

Burns

Knee injuries

Nerve damage

Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries

Neck injuries

Ligament damage

Fractures

Lacerations

Crushing injuries

Pelvic injuries

Muscle Damage

Passenger compartment intrusion (PCI) is one of the most deadly outcomes of truck accidents. During a collision, the victim bears the brunt of all of the force since the vehicle’s frame can’t withstand the impact. This is often fatal because of the severity of the injuries.

No matter how serious your injuries or those of a family member were as a result of a truck accident, you should contact an attorney immediately and seek the necessary legal guidance. You may be able to file a lawsuit and receive compensation for the damages caused.

Truck Accident Liability in San Bernardino

In most cases, the trucking company is held liable for damages caused by truck accidents in San Bernardino. Trucking companies and truck drivers are considered common carriers in California and are, therefore, held to a higher legal standard of care. They must always take the utmost care to prevent causing accidents and harming people. When the driver and/or the company fail to meet their legal standard of care, the company will be held accountable for its driver’s carelessness and any other negligence. This includes things such as poorly maintained trucks and improper driver training.

In some cases, a trucking company may not be responsible for a crash. For instance, a poorly maintained road could cause a collision. Other accidents can be caused by debris and other road dangers. If this is the case, the highway authority and county can be held responsible.

Additionally, the manufacturer of the product in transit can also be held liable if, for instance, their product made the truck catch fire leading to a crash. In order to ensure that the culpable parties are held accountable, you should hire an experienced truck accident lawyer.

If you have been involved in a truck accident, an experienced lawyer will help you think through the damages you suffered. In addition, they will help you with filing a truck accident claim, leaving you with enough time and freedom to concentrate on your medical treatment.

When a big rig collision results in a truck accident injury, an attorney from Kash Legal who is well-versed in resolving the difficulties that can develop in a truck accident can help you in the following ways:

Investigation

Our attorneys will gather and analyze any available evidence available, such as photographs of the accident scene, statements from eyewitnesses, medical records, and police reports in order to determine the validity of your San Bernardino personal injury claim. 

Such evidence will also come in handy when convincing the other party of their fault or proving it before a jury if the case goes to court.

Negotiations

After the accident, you are already dealing with hospital visits and all of the struggles that resulted from the accident. Therefore, the added burden of dealing with insurers and every other party you need to engage with for a successful claim is exhausting. 

You need a skilled negotiator to help you get the full compensation you deserve. At Kash Legal, our lawyers will handle all settlement talks on your behalf as you rest and focus fully on your treatment and healing process.

Excess Speed

Litigation

This is the last avenue of pursuing recompense, and it involves going to court and proving that you should be paid. If the settlement talks don’t bear fruits, we are ready to represent you before a jury. Our trial lawyers will tirelessly fight for your rights to get a favorable ruling for you.

We’ve handled a number of personal injury cases within San Bernardino county, and we’re well-versed with the area’s traffic laws. We have also dealt with many insurance companies before and know how to bring them to a conclusion that is favorable to you.

Recovering Damages in a Truck Accident Case

A truck accident is usually catastrophic, especially for the passenger vehicle occupants, and when there is a pedestrian involved, it can lead to their death. Filing a lawsuit with the help of a lawyer may enable you to get compensated for your injuries or the death of your family member.

An experienced truck accident lawyer may help you recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages may include:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Vehicle damage

Non-economic damages don’t have specific dollar amounts, and they may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship/consortium
  • Changes in lifestyle
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional distress

Punitive damages are also awarded when the jury considers the defendant’s actions egregious enough to punish them for their carelessness. These are not awarded often, but your lawyer will let you know if they may apply to your case.
