The Money You Need in an Irvine Truck Accident Case

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.
