Truck accidents in the greater San Diego area can lead to catastrophic injuries, and with all of the highways in and around El Cajon and La Mesa, we have far too many of these accidents. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reports over 3,000 fatalities every year due to large truck accidents, and 53,000 injuries, many of which are serious or catastrophic.
Semi-trucks are more prone to these types of accidents; they take longer to stop, and there’s far more mass involved in a collision. Because tractor-trailers and big rigs are so large, truck accidents involving these vehicles are more likely to result in serious injury or fatality than any other type of accident. If you were recently involved in a truck accident, a San Diego attorney can help you get the compensation you need.
San Diego Truck Accidents Cause Catastrophic, Long-Term Injuries
The types of injuries you’re likely to incur in a truck accident are severe or even catastrophic, and often have long-term implications. You may suffer brain injury, spinal injury and permanent disability, or you may have even lost a loved one as a result of a negligent truck driver’s actions.
When you’re dealing with tractor trailer accidents that have long-term repercussions, you need a personal injury lawyer who can help you look at the big picture. We can help estimate future medical expenses, lost wages over your lifetime, loss of enjoyment or loss of consortium and other long-term damages that include not only your current state, but your future.
Tractor Trailer Crashes are Subject to Federal Law
Unlike regular car accidents, large trucks are subject to federal law. This means that it takes more than knowledge of California car accident law to litigate a San Diego truck accident case; an attorney with knowledge of federal laws and regulations on the trucking industry can put together a thorough, accurate case.
