A Truck On Top Of A Car – You Have To See It

Posted By The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, P.C. Posted in: Car Accident.

26-October-2018

We usually try to bring you stories from the city, but this is one that has made the rounds on national news and is relevant to what we experience in traffic in San Diego.

You may have seen the remarkable photos of the pickup truck that ended up on top of a red car the other day in Arizona.

Remarkably, nobody was injured in the accident, a testament to the great things that seatbelts can do. This accident, like many others, could have been much worse. This accident was the acceptation.

You see, this crash, like so many in our area, was caused by another driver coming into the pickup truck driver’s lane. That then forced the pickup into oncoming traffic. The photos are the result of what was certainly a scary event for everyone involved.

But do you know what to do if you are in a vehicle accident that is caused by someone else’s negligence?

At the Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, we will be by your side when you need a San Diego car accident attorney.

How It Happens

We want to talk a moment about distracted driving and how dangerous it is. National research identifies three factors for distracted driving:

  • Visual (eyes off the road)
  • Manual (hands off the wheel)
  • Cognitive (taking your mind off driving)

More than 50 percent of the drivers in California say that distracted driving is their main concern when they hit the roadway.

We do not want to overstate just how dangerous impaired driving continues to be in California. Out of the nearly 12,000 serious traffic crash injuries and over 3,000 traffic crash fatalities, a large percentage of them were cause by alcohol-impaired drivers.

Injuries

Getting injured in a vehicle accident is more than just a nuisance. It can leave you with major medical bills, even for minor injuries like bumps and bruises.

For major injuries like internal organ damage and head trauma, the costs can rise into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Did you know that the first year medical costs for a spinal cord injury can reach over $1 million?

Will you be able to afford the care needed? What if you are disabled and unable to work for an extended period of time?

Will your family be able to pay bill and buy food?

What To Do Now

It is always better to seek legal assistance soon after an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. Insurance companies will push for a quick resolution which is almost always not going to be enough to cover your accident-related expenses.
