Motorcycle Accident
$5,000,000.00
Auto v. Motorcycle – At first glance, the evidence seemed to be unfavorable to our severely injured client. The police report had placed him at fault for the crash. He was alleged to have been under the influence and speeding on his motorcycle. And he lacked motorcycle insurance subjecting him to California’s Prop 213, barring him from recovering damages for pain and suffering. Benny and his team, however, were able to prove that the truck driver violated his training and his company’s policies and procedures and made an exceptionally dangerous turn that contributed to the collision. Had the turn been made safely, the crash would not have occurred.

What Are The Types Of Accidents We Handle?

Our experienced Fresno attorneys are experienced in all types of accident cases, including the following:

Car Accidents

Fresno is home to some of California’s deadliest state highways and freeways, specifically State Route 99. In 2021, the Transportation Injury Mapping System (TIMS) recorded 247 crashes in this area, killing 12 individuals and injuring 337. SR 41 and 180 are also particularly dangerous for motorists, recording a total of 213 and 207 cases, respectively, that led to injuries and deaths.

Even on Fresno streets, car accidents are not inevitable. They could occur due to several reasons, including:

  • Speeding
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Unsafe merging

Traffic collisions might also happen due to dangerous road conditions and rainy weather. Whatever the case, you might have a claim if there’s negligence involved. Consult our Fresno lawyers, who specialize in car accidents, for more information.

Driving Under The Influence (DUI) Accidents

Drunk driving is against the law, and anyone who is found driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs may get charged with a misdemeanor. If they cause an accident, they might instead get a felony.

Alcohol, illegal drugs, and even certain medications could impair an individual in many ways. For one, they negatively affect one’s judgment, coordination, reaction time, and ability to make rational decisions. All these skills are important for safe driving. When an intoxicated person drives, they may engage in reckless behaviors like speeding, weaving, and violating traffic laws.

DUI accidents can cause serious injuries and fatalities for drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other road users. If a drunk driver hits you, contact our Fresno accident attorneys right away. We will exert every effort to hold them accountable.

Truck Accidents

The rules and regulations governing the truck industry can be complicated. In the event of an accident, multiple parties may be held liable, including the driver and the trucking company.

As such, you need the help of our truck accident attorneys. We know all the local, state, and federal laws that might apply to your case. With this knowledge, we will pursue justice against the responsible parties.

Premises Liability

Property owners, managers, business owners, or homeowners have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of any individuals who enter their properties. Premises liability holds them accountable for maintaining safe conditions and addressing any hazards, including:

  • Performing regular inspections and maintenance
  • Promptly repair any dangerous conditions
  • Providing adequate warnings

If they neglect these responsibilities and an accident occurs, they may be responsible for paying the victim’s damages.

Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Premises liability laws also cover slip-and-fall accidents. Property owners and landlords have a duty to keep the walkways within their premises free of any hazards that might cause patrons, tenants, and visitors to lose their footing. Some examples are:

  • Wet floors
  • Spilled liquids
  • Uneven flooring
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Obstructions 
  • Broken steps
  • Loose mats
  • Inadequate safety measures

Slip accidents can occur anywhere, including Walmart, Target, supermarkets, restaurants, or malls. They may also happen in residential apartments and commercial buildings. In any case, the parties responsible for ensuring safety in these properties would most likely be liable if their negligence in addressing the issues above contributed to a trip-and-fall incident.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are invariably at a disadvantage in collisions. They are more likely to sustain fatal injuries, such as in the March 2024 incident in Fresno. A sedan hit a pedestrian near the Jensen Avenue and Bardell Avenue intersection. The driver survived, but the victim unfortunately died at the scene.

Aside from car crashes, individuals are also at risk of getting injured due to slip & fall incidents, assaults, and other types of pedestrian accidents.

Product Liability

If a defective or unsafe product harms you, can you sue the manufacturer? Absolutely! In California, they have strict liability for the products they release to the public. Product liability laws may also hold distributors and retailers accountable.

As long as the injured consumer was using the product in a reasonable and predictable manner, product liability laws are likely to apply. Such incidents may occur due to design flaws, manufacturing defects, and failures to warn. Some auto defects, like brake failures and defective airbags, can also fall under this statute.

Other Traffic Accidents

Some other types of motor vehicle collisions might happen on Fresno’s roads, involving the following types of vehicles:

Motorcycles

If you get injured in a motorbike accident, who better to protect your claim than someone knowledgeable about the county’s highways, traffic laws, and motorcyclist safety rules in California? Our Fresno motorcycle accident attorneys are available to help with that. 

Bicycles

Fresno has been on top of adding bikeways to improve the safety of bicyclists and offer its residents more transportation modes. Despite this, riders are still susceptible to bicycle accidents. They are even at a higher risk of sustaining severe injuries as they’re less protected than car occupants.

Commercial Vehicles

Buses, vans, and other commercial vehicles may also cause accidents in Fresno. As a result, some motorists like to avoid public transit routes in the Fresno Area Express, such as certain areas in Riverside, McKinley, Tulare, Belmont, and more.

In February 2024, an SUV caused a devastating incident at the Shields and Cedar Avenue bus stop. Its driver, who had a suspended license, struck a FAX bus and burst into flames. This only highlights that dangers are everywhere, whether you’re driving your own car or sitting on a bus.

Rideshare Cars

Uber and Lyft accidents may also happen in Fresno. In these cases, victims might be eligible to file a claim against the rideshare company’s third-party insurance as mandated by California law AB 2293. These can be complicated, so you should reach out to our Fresno accident lawyers, who specialize in Lyft and Uber accidents.

Other Types Of Accidents

Common Injuries Sustained By Accident Victims in Fresno, CA

Common Injuries Sustained By Accident Victims

The injuries that victims might sustain depend on the accident. For instance, slip-and-fall incidents can lead to traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) if the victim’s head strikes a hard surface upon impact. Similarly, individuals in traffic collisions can suffer from TBI when they hit their heads on the dashboard or the ground. These two types of accidents commonly lead to fractures as well.

Rear-end collisions are notorious for causing whiplash due to the rapid back-and-forth movement of the head and neck. Meanwhile, truck accidents pose a higher risk of catastrophic injuries and even wrongful deaths. The sheer size and weight of big rigs contribute to a more powerful impact upon collision, potentially leading to spinal cord injuries, paralysis, disabilities, and more.

Some other bodily injuries accident victims might sustain are:

Furthermore, accidents can inflict psychological trauma, leading to mental health conditions like PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

Due to the extensive effects an injury may have on the victim, they must seek financial compensation to support their medical and psychological recovery. Reach out to our attorneys, who win various accident cases in Fresno County. We will help you get the appropriate treatment and determine how much you need to cover all your losses.

What Types Of Compensation Can You Recover After An Accident?

The degree, kind, and extent of the victim’s losses and damages, which may include:

  • Medical bills (immediate and ongoing care)
  • Treatment and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost income
  • Vehicle or property damage
  • Mental or emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Knowing the full amount you’re entitled to can be difficult. That is why hiring our Fresno accident lawyers is crucial.

At Arash Law, our goal is simple: to help you recover physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially from your accident. We will use all means to maximize your compensation and protect your case from insurers who want to devalue or deny your claim.

Why Should I File A Claim After An Accident?

There are several compelling reasons to file a claim after an accident, especially if you believe someone else’s negligence caused your injuries. Here’s why acting quickly is important:
  • Promptly filing a claim can help preserve crucial evidence, which might become lost, altered, or difficult to obtain over time.
  • Our lawyers will be able to investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident immediately.
  • You have higher chances of resolving the case as soon as possible, allowing you to receive compensation sooner rather than later.
  • Knowing you’ve taken steps to protect your rights can provide peace of mind and lessen stress following an accident.
Statute Of Limitations

Another reason to pursue a legal claim right away is to ensure you don’t miss your deadlines. In Fresno County and California, you only have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury case.

The statute of limitations may have some exceptions, but it’s a pretty complicated topic to navigate alone. Feel free to reach out to our Fresno lawyers, who specialize in different types of accidents, to learn more about your deadlines.

Comparative Negligence In California

Fresno County follows California’s pure comparative negligence system. According to this rule, a victim may claim damages for injuries, even if they were up to 99% responsible for the accident.

This statute also holds all negligent parties responsible for compensating the victim. The court assigns each at-fault entity a percentage of liability based on their respective contribution to the accident.

The victim can also be held responsible in some cases. They will still be able to get compensation. However, the amount they get will be reduced according to their part in the accident.

As such, a victim who is 20% responsible for an accident will have their claim reduced by 20%. If their total damages amount to $500,000, they would only get $400,000 after deducting $100,000, which is 20% of $500,000.

What To Do After An Accident

Knowing what to do after an accident can help secure your right to compensation and possibly lead to a faster healing process. Here are the steps that you can follow after an accident:

  1. Check yourself and your passengers for any injuries. If the injury is severe, do not attempt to move yourself or another injured person unless it is necessary, such as when you need to remove them from immediate danger.
  2. Call 911 and contact Fresno County’s local emergency services. Always remember not to remove anything from the scene until the local authorities arrive. 
  3. Report the incident to the person in charge of supervising the area. For slip-and-falls, it could be the store’s owner or manager. For workplace accidents, notify the immediate supervisor or HR.
  4. Wait for medical personnel to arrive on the scene. Let them help you and give you a medical evaluation. Afterward, make sure to follow up with a visit to the ER.
  5. Take pictures or videos to document the scene. The photos should include your injuries sustained and damages to property, if any.
  6. Get the contact information of the other parties involved in the accident. Obtain their full names, addresses, and phone numbers. If it’s a vehicular accident, check their driver’s licenses and insurance cards. 
  7. Contact a Fresno accident lawyer for further instructions. We will guide you through the subsequent steps to safeguard your rights against the parties and their insurance companies.
