Getting legal help as soon as possible after a serious trucking accident is extremely important. Any accident that involves a commercial truck could leave you with significant physical injuries as well as property damage. In the event that you or someone you know has already been involved in such a wreck, getting critical medical care and contacting a knowledgeable San Diego truck accident attorney is essential to protecting your legal rights.
Given that you have a limited period of time in which to file a truck accident lawsuit, you need to consult with a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney can help you craft a legal strategy for your case and secure the crucial detail. A typical commercial truck that has been fully loaded with cargo can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds.
Due to this disparity in size, any collision involving a small passenger vehicle and a truck can lead to life threatening or even fatal injuries. You may suffer additional injuries depending on the nature of the freight carried by the commercial truck. You may also be at a higher risk for critical injuries in the event that your passenger vehicle is involved in a trucking accident. As an example, if there are hazardous or flammable materials on the truck, you may suffer secondary injuries like respiratory problems and burns.
One of the greatest challenges in commercial trucking accident lawsuits is in determining liable parties. Multiple parties may be liable in the event of a San Diego truck accident. For example, if the employer was negligent in training the employee, then you may have a claim against both the driver and the trucking company.
In the event that defective parts on a truck contributed to the severe accident, you may also have a claim against the manufacturer of those parts. Having an experienced attorney who has worked with cases like these before is critical for protecting your rights and ensuring that you have someone advocating for you over the duration of your case. Whether it is a trucking company, the driver or another party, in a trucking accident case you will argue that the plaintiff has a duty to exercise reasonable care in order to avoid injury. If the defendant fails to exercise this reasonable care, or in other words, breached the duty of reasonable care, and you suffered injuries as a result, you may be eligible to recover compensation via a trucking accident lawsuit. A San Diego trucking accident can happen anywhere, whether it is a major highway or a rural location. No matter where or how the accident happens, the chances of being seriously injured are quite high in a truck crash.
There are several different common causes of trucking accidents that may be involved in your case. These include:
