Commercial Truck Accident 101: Top Advice Offered by a Personal Injury Lawyer

Getting hit by a commercial truck is very different from the usual car accident, as these vehicles are bigger and the ramifications are much more severe. Commercial trucks often weigh 20-30 times as much as a passenger car and are much taller. If you are ever involved in one of these accidents, here is how you should respond.

Take Safety Precautions

You can avoid these costly and sometimes fatal accidents altogether by taking certain safety precautions when driving next to commercial trucks. Stay out of their blind spot as much as you can. Trucks need a lot of room to switch lanes and turn, and if you are in a blind spot, your chances of getting hit go up.

3 Common Motorcycle Accidents and How Personal Injury Lawyers can Deal with Them

Although motorcycle accidents are not more frequent than accidents involving any other type of vehicle, they are more likely to result in severe or fatal injuries. That’s because riders are not protected by a vehicle cabin. In 2015 alone, 88,000 motorcyclists were injured. Here are several common causes of motorcycle accidents and how to handle them legally.

Lane Splitting

Bikes can go between vehicles occupying two different lanes that are stopped. This is known as lane-splitting and it’s a great tactic if you’re in a hurry. It can also be very dangerous because of how close vehicles are to your motorcycle and the fact that other drivers don’t expect you to pass by. They may try to pull into another lane, for example, while you drive by thinking the path is clear. Your ride may be damaged and you can be injured if a driver or a passenger opens a car door as you are passing through. Read more from this blog: http://bit.ly/2ouwTVI

Injury claims, including those related to construction-site accidents, must meet the California statute of limitations. For instance, whether you are harmed intentionally or not, state laws dictate that you only have two years from the date of injury to file a suit.

However, if you’re litigating government agencies, you should fill out a special claim (also called an “administrative claim”) before filing the case. You must use the government’s form to file the claim and do this within six months of the date of injury. Hence, depending on the party you are suing, you may only have six months to two years at most. Read more from this blog: http://bit.ly/2oNQ54g
