Understanding the Full Impact of Car and Truck Accidents
Sometimes a car accident is just a car accident — one car runs into another and one or more people suffer some kind of personal injury. Yet, when the injuries are serious and/or the crash is the result of negligence, the lawyers at the Law Office of Eric Ecsamilla look deeper.
It is that in-depth investigation into auto wrecks and truck crashes that can make an enormous difference in the compensation for serious injury and wrongful death cases that an insurance company is willing to pay. That is the difference the Law Offices of Eric Escamilla brings to a personal injury case in Fresno-Clovis or the rest of the Valley. Call (559) 485-2535 or contact us online to learn more.
Serious injuries require substantial compensation.
Burn injuries can require years of pain and numerous surgeries, and permanent life-altering scars. Brain injuries are heartbreaking in the way they change the lives of injured people and their families in Fresno-Clovis. Spinal and back injuries can require a lifetime of care and continual rehabilitation. Complex, multiple fractures can often times require surgery and rehabilitation.
All of these injuries cost money and your rights need to be protected. There are current medical expenses and income loss, but also future expenses such as rehabilitation and pain and suffering. At the Law Offices of Eric Escamilla, our personal injury attorneys look at every opportunity for compensation that can pay for those costs.
Our attorneys look for the full story of what happened.
In addition to the police reports and accident reconstruction that determine who caused the accident, our Fresno-Clovis personal injury lawyers look at other factors:
- Did the road contribute to the accident? Dangerous roads can be a factor into accidents— sometimes the primary factor — in a car accident, truck crash or motorcycle accident. Was the signage visible and clearly accurate? Were construction zones appropriately identified and marked? Did a pothole or a dangerous shoulder or gravel or sand make the road dangerous at the time of the accident?
- Did a motor vehicle defect cause the accident to the vehicle? When the Ford Explorer rolled over, memos showed that the company knew in advance that SUV rollovers could and would happen. (An engineer wrote that the SUV needed to be lower and wider to prevent rollover accidents.) Jeep knew before it sold its cars that the middle seat in the back needed a three-point restraint but still sold them. (Years before an accident that could cause a child’s spinal cord injury, Jeep had films that showed what would happen.)
Our personal injury law firm has extensive experience with premise liability cases — when dangerous products cause accidents or make accidents and injuries even more serious. When we see an auto collision, a truck accident or a motorcycle crash, one of our first questions is, “How did the road or the vehicle act on the road?”
