San Diego Truck Accident
This crash is a reminder that a dangerous roadway situation can occur suddenly, at any time. While the truck driver in this case was not technically negligent, many factors will need to be examined in order to assign liability to the crash. Police will have to consider whether the truck driver knew or should have known that his vehicle was unsafe for the roadway. Additionally, any maintenance done to the vehicle prior to the tire blow out must be considered. A mechanic or someone that worked on the truck could also be held responsible under a negligence theory.
In California, when a driver’s negligence leads to injuries to another driver, then the negligent driver is legally responsible for any injuries sustained by the others. These injuries can include medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. In serious accident cases, the injury settlement may also contemplate future medical bills and procedures.
