What will an attorney do to help this case?

A San Diego truck accident lawyer is going to be necessary for these cases. Most truck accident victims will not have the resources needed to thoroughly investigate their claim and pursue maximum compensation. However, an attorney can:

  • Use their extensive resources to obtain and preserve any evidence needed to prove liability (video or photo surveillance, accident reports, truck “black box” data, company and driver records, etc.).
  • Ensure their client is evaluated by a trusted medical professional who can ensure they are cared for and help calculate total expected losses.
  • Negotiate with aggressive insurance carriers and trucking companies to obtain maximum compensation for the claim.

Main causes of truck accidents in San Diego

According to data available from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), we know that there were more than 4,000 total fatalities caused by large truck crashes across the country during the latest reporting year of data available. Unfortunately, thousands more were severely injured in these incidents.

There are various causes of large truck crashes in the San Diego area. At the Younglove Law Firm, our investigations regularly discover these incidents are caused by:

  • Truck driver fatigue (failing to follow hours of service requirements)
  • Truck drivers distracted by their phones or other devices
  • Truck drivers impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding or other traffic law violations by the truck driver
  • Trucking companies failing to inspect and maintain their vehicles
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks

How long do you have to file a San Diego truck accident claim?

Victims of San Diego truck accidents will have a limited amount of time to file lawsuits against the alleged negligent party in their case. The California personal injury statute of limitations is two years from the date the crash occurs. This means that San Diego truck accident victims have a two-year window with which to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent truck driver or truck company, or they will lose the ability to recover compensation for their losses.
