Types of Vehicle Crashes
Auto accidents often occur when drivers are violating traffic laws, speeding or not paying attention. Drunken driving is also a cause of many accidents. While the impact of two cars colliding can be devastating and cause serious injury or death, the odds of severe injury or fatalities are even greater in truck crashes, motorcycle or bicycle accidents.
- Truck crashes. The mass and momentum of a large truck, such as a semi or 18-wheeler brings a lot of force into play when there is a collision. For this reason, the injuries are typically serious and frequently fatal. Representation in a truck accident requires extensive knowledge of trucking industry regulations to prove negligence on the part of the driver, company, loading company or other potentially liable parties. Multiple parties are often defendants in truck accident cases. Your car crash attorney in Salinas has the job of thoroughly investigating the accident scene, gathering evidence, analyzing the accident cause and — after identifying liable parties — holding them accountable.
- Motorcycle crashes. Motorcycles offer little or no protection to the rider when struck by a car or larger vehicle. Because most drivers do not see the motorcycle until it is too late to avoid the accident, the collision may involve a lot of force, especially if vehicles are going at high speeds. An experienced accident lawyer can deal with biker bias and other obstacles inherent in motorcycle accident cases, to help you obtain a fair settlement or award.
- Bike accidents. Similar to motorcycle accidents, cyclists have no protection in an accident. While a popular form of recreation and sport, bicycling can be dangerous.
Our seasoned injury lawyers also help clients recover compensation in slip injuries and other types of personal injury cases.
