When cars collide with big-rig trucks, the results are nearly always catastrophic or fatal. Trucks crossing highways, such as Wellsona Road and US Highway 101 in San Luis Obispo County, are a prime example. Trucks crossing Highway 101 to enter an adjacent truck stop have been the cause of as many as 14 serious injuries or deaths since 2010. Lawyers at The Ernst Law Group recovered $11,000,000 for a man seriously injured when he collided with a truck that had stopped, blocking the southbound lanes while attempting to turn onto Highway 101. In early 2016, we reached a confidential settlement for one of the victims killed in a Christmas Eve crash at this intersection.
If you were injured in a car accident that was a result of another’s negligence, you may pursue a cause of action to recover compensation for your injuries and other expenses. For example, if a driver was texting and not paying attention to his or her driving, and it caused an accident that resulted in an automobile crash and a physical injury, you may file a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage and more. If punitive damages are applicable, compensation may be significantly higher. The San Luis Obispo Ernst Law Group is a premier law firm that has recovered millions of dollars for their clients.
