With Interstate 10 and Interstate 215 running through the middle of San Bernardino County it is often the case that numerous major car and truck accidents are reported on a daily basis. With millions of drivers traveling at speeds close to 85 and 90 miles per hour, some of these accidents can cause major injuries. Unfortunately, many car accidents in San Bernardino could have been avoided if one or multiple drivers were not negligent in their actions while driving a vehicle. If you were not at fault for a car accident in which you were injured contact the SoCal Injury Lawyers today so we can discuss how our legal team can help you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries.
Was the Car Accident My Fault?
It is very important for all drivers to know that California is a comparative negligence state. This means the court system will deduct the equivalent percentage of the amount of damages the plaintiff has sought. If there are $200,000 in damages and the plaintiff is 25% at fault, they will recover $150,000. With this knowledge, understand that even if you are partly at fault for a car accident in San Bernardino County you may be able to recover for your injuries, pain and suffering, loss of income and damages.
There are many car accidents in which it is obvious who is at fault. That said, there are some accidents and crashes in which there is a lot of grey area. Please contact the SoCal Injury Lawyers if you feel as if you were not at fault in the car accident. We will have an experienced personal injury lawyer discuss your accident and review the case to determine if you can receive compensation for the damages.
Our firm will be honest and up front with you. We will not drag you along, making you think you will receive a compensation check only to later inform you that we are not going to take on your case. With our experienced team, we will be able to determine if you are at fault rather quickly.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Most car insurance companies will want to immediately settle with the victim of a car accident. They do not want to negotiate or take the case to court as it will only cost them time or money. Before accepting a settlement check from a car insurance company it is a wise decision to contact a personal injury lawyer today. Legal professionals will be able to better determine just how much your case is worth.
We have received calls from clients that were offered a $15,000 check only to find out their true settlement was well over $100,000. Unfortunately, most individuals that have suffered from injuries related to a car accident are not thinking straight and they just want to get the whole situation out of their mind. They accept a settlement check and miss out on the money needed to pay for medical bills, loss of future income and pain and suffering.
At the SoCal Injury Lawyers we have a great deal of experience when it comes to calculating the proper amount when approaching a car insurance company. While there is no specific calculator that can be used, we have the knowledge to properly assess the damages and potential loss of income moving forward. Allow our team to help you receive the maximum amount from your vehicular accident in San Bernardino.

2017 Common Truck Accidents in San Bernardino
Every single year we see a number of common types of truck accidents in the San Bernardino area. If you are driving through San Bernardino you likely encounter a number of big rig, 18 wheeler trucks that are driving at high rates of speed. One of the most common types of accidents we see with big rig trucks is cutting off a smaller vehicle. We understand that all vehicles are smaller than a big rig, 18 wheeler truck but it is more uncommon that truck drivers do not see smaller sedan vehicles, especially fuel efficient vehicles. If you are driving a Toyota Yaris or Prius or a Dodge Dart a truck driver may not take the time to make 100% certain you are not in their blind spot.
Another common accident with 18 wheeler trucks in the state of California is a truck driver pulling over to sleep in the middle of the night. It is not only unsafe, it is illegal to pull over on the side of the road to sleep in the state of California. There are many times in which the wheels of an 18 wheeler are still obstructing drivers from getting through and end up causing major accidents that can be deadly.
