The Money You Need in an Irvine Truck Accident Case
The legal team at our firm is committed to ensuring that you obtain fair
compensation in your case. Financial recovery in a truck accident case
depends on the circumstances surrounding the collision itself, together
with a close consideration of the nature and extent of the injuries you
sustained. With this in mind, there are certain types of injuries, damages,
and losses for which our firm routinely seeks compensation for our clients.
- medical expenses
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish and emotional distress
- physical disability
- lost wages
An Irvine truck accident lawyer from The Doan Law Firm will fight to obtain
full compensation for you in your case. You may be entitled not only to
money for your existing losses, but for those you reasonably can be expected
to face in the future. For example, you may require medical care and treatment
well into the future. This is an example of an ongoing loss for which
our firm will seek money for you.
Common Causes of an Irvine Truck Accident
There are a variety of recurring causes of commercial truck accidents.
Some of the underlying causes occur more frequently than others. In and
around Irvine, some of the more common causes of semi-truck accidents are:
- distracted driver
- fatigued driver
- impaired driver
- mechanical breakdown
In some instances, multiple underlying causes contribute to a commercial
truck accident. For example, there may be a mechanical malfunction of
some sort that is aggravated by a distracted big rig operator.
Proving Negligence in a California Truck Accident Case
A key task of an Irvine truck accident lawyer from our firm is to prove
the elements of negligence in your case. There are four primary elements
of negligence that must be established in a commercial truck accident case.
First, a duty of care must be established. A commercial truck driver has
a duty to operate a big rig in a reasonably safe manner. Second, that
duty of care must be breached. An example of a breach of a duty of care
would be a semi driver who was texting while driving.
Third, the breach of the duty of care must be what is known as the proximate
cause of the accident and injuries. Proximate cause means the breach of
the duty of care must be the legal and actual cause of the accident and
associated injuries. Finally, you must suffer actual injuries, damages,
and losses. They cannot be speculative, something that you think might
arise at some point in time in the future.
