Determining damages in California car accident cases

This blog regularly encourages readers to contact an attorney if they have been injured or lost a loved one in an automobile accident. One of the chief reasons for seeking legal advice in such cases is to determine the amount of damages that can be recovered. In this post, we intend to summarize the types of damages that can be recovered from a party who is found to be at fault in causing an automobile accident.

Container falls from truck, kills bicyclist

One of the most common sights on Los Angeles freeways is container trucks, that is, trucks hauling large containers that are used to ship goods very long distances. The large number of container trucks can be explained by the efficiency of shipping containers: once a container is packed, it can be shipped by rail, ship or truck without re-packing. Containers can be hauled by trucks specially designed for the purpose or on flat bed trailers. In either case, the principal safety concern is securely fastening the container to the truck. That concern appears to be the center of an investigation of a truck accident that killed a bicyclist near the boundary between Carson and Long Beach.

While motorcycle accident numbers had previously declined in California, they are back on the rise.
