Who Is Liable in a Commercial Truck Accident?

Thursday, September 23, 2021

One of the major differences between commercial truck accidents and the average car crash is liability, or who’s at fault.

Liable parties in a regular car accident are usually just the drivers of the vehicles involved. Determining liability in a truck accident is a far more complex process that could include multiple third parties beyond the person actually driving the commercial vehicle. In other words, the accident may not have entirely been the driver’s fault, even if it appears that way at first. Proving liability in cases like these normally requires an experienced truck accident lawyer.

Manufacturing, managing, and loading a truck is a long process that requires input from many different parties. There’s room for error along any one of these points in the process of moving goods from one location to the next. Because of that, the following groups, companies, and individuals could potentially be held liable for negligence in a truck accident:

Manufacturers: Companies that manufacture truck parts and equipment — anything from tires to brake pads — could share in the blame if their parts helped cause an accident. Some common examples of malfunctioning equipment include tire blowouts, faulty brakes, and mechanical failures. A thorough investigation should reveal such things after an accident. If found to be at fault, manufacturers would be required to pay at least part of victims’ damages.

The Trucking Company: The company that hires the truck driver is a frequent third party held liable in accidents. The trucking company is responsible for maintaining and inspecting the vehicle before every trip, ensuring that all equipment is working properly. But too often, these companies cut corners on inspections, increasing the risk of an accident. They may also push a driver to work longer hours than is safe in the name of meeting a shipping deadline.

Cargo Loaders: Cargo loaders are supposed to ensure a shipment is secured and balanced properly in the truck before the vehicle ever departs. Improperly packed cargo could spill onto the road or throw the truck off balance and hinder a driver’s ability to control the vehicle. An underloaded or overloaded truck can also cause problems for the driver and potentially anyone else in the nearby vicinity.

Truck Drivers: Often, the person behind the wheel of the commercial vehicle shares some responsibility in an accident. Drivers that speed, make reckless lane changes, or break other traffic laws are a danger to everyone on the road. Many truck drivers also struggle with substance abuse, while others work past their designated Hours of Service regulations and wind up exhausted and overworked. All of these factors increase the risk of an accident happening.

Because of the number of potentially responsible parties involved, truck accident litigation can get extremely complex very quickly. If the accident is catastrophic — which is often the case with commercial vehicles — proving negligence will get even more nuanced. Trucking companies and others on the above list do not have your best interests in mind and will often try to get out of paying what they rightfully owe. These companies are armed with attorneys and resources and will usually do everything they can to avoid paying you compensation.

Your best course of action after a major truck accident is to find an experienced truck accident attorney. Rodriguez & Associates has decades of experience handling truck accident cases, and our expertise covers not just engineering and legal issues but also the day-to-day details for truckers that can lead to accidents.

What to Look for When Hiring a Truck Accident Lawyer

Tuesday, September 14, 2021

In truck accidents, it’s usually those inside the passenger vehicles that get the worst injuries. This is because commercial trucking vehicles like semi-trucks, which are on average 72 feet long and weigh 80,000 pounds, cause so much more destruction than your typical sedan. Drivers of smaller vehicles are therefore much more vulnerable.

Since multiple parties can be held responsible in a truck accident, including the driver, trucking company, or parts manufacturers, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries if you are involved in a truck crash. To do that, it is best to find an experienced truck accident lawyer that has your best interests at heart.

As you search for the right attorney, you will ideally find a person with the following characteristics:

Experience With Truck Accident Cases

Your attorney should have at least some experience handling truck accident cases. This is a complex area of personal injury litigation, and your attorney needs to know how to properly investigate the case as well as the many state and federal laws that will be involved. Truck insurance companies almost always try to avoid paying what they owe to a victim, and a good truck accident attorney will be able to anticipate this and fight back with your best interests in mind.

Resources and Accessibility

Some firms take on so many cases they aren’t able to give each individual one the attention it deserves. That can potentially hurt your chances of claiming as much compensation as you deserve. The ideal attorney will have enough resources to be able to manage your case and provide additional staff to help respond to your calls and emails around the clock. It is never a good sign if you cannot get in touch with your attorney’s office or get a response to a question.

Positive Customer Feedback

No attorney wins every case, but you can get a sense of how competent this person is by paying attention to what others are saying. Look for online reviews about your prospective attorney to determine how easy they’ll be to work with. You want someone who is available, empathetic, detail-oriented, and can make you feel at ease during a stressful situation. If reviews suggest otherwise, you might want to look elsewhere for your attorney.

Awards and Honors

Top lawyers are usually on “Best of” lists. An attorney’s website and LinkedIn profile should list local and national recognition, along with that person’s participation in community organizations and pro-bono activities. An added bonus is if the attorney has won an award for multiple years in a row.

Though it might feel a little overwhelming to start your search for a truck accident attorney, remember that the more work you put into finding your ideal person, the better your case result is likely to be. Truck accidents are physically and emotionally traumatic events. You can improve your changes of compensation by working with the right person.

The Most Dangerous Tasks for Oilfield Workers

Thursday, September 9, 2021

When it comes to jobs that are inherently dangerous, the oil and gas industries are at the top of the list. From 2013 to 2017, the most recent year for data, 489 oil and gas extraction workers were killed on the job, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Explosions, such as the type that caused the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, are typically what come to mind when we think of oilfield accidents. But while those events are undoubtedly catastrophic, they are not necessarily the most common danger for those working on the oilfield.

The most dangerous tasks for oilfield workers include:

Driving. One of the most dangerous jobs in the oil industry doesn’t take place on the field or rig but instead on the freeway. Motor vehicle crashes cause over 50 percent of work-related deaths in the oil and gas extraction industries, according to the CDC.

This is largely due to the long hours these drivers are usually required to put in. Oilfield drivers are subject to different rules under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Hours of Service regulations than other commercial truck drivers. Because of this, they often work much longer shifts. The fatigue and exhaustion from such long hours can greatly increase the risk of a catastrophic accident happening.

Derrick operations. Derrick operators build, operate, inspect, manage, and service all components of an oil derrick. This means they are constantly working with heavy, dangerous equipment that if not managed properly can lead to falling objects, crush injuries, and slips and falls.

Derrick operators are also expected to work long hours in all types of weather: extreme heat, freezing cold, wind storms, and other situations. Like drivers, these individuals battle a good deal of fatigue from their working conditions and are at greater risk for accidents because of it.

Roustabout. Roustabouts are entry-level workers who do a number of different tasks, including handling cargo, transporting materials, and maintaining equipment. The work is physically and mentally demanding, and the hours are generally long.

Roustabouts also work in extreme weather conditions and with heavy, dangerous equipment.

Many oilfield accidents are preventable when proper safety regulations are followed and basic precautions taken. It is when employers cut corners to save time that their workers wind up at risk for severe injury and even death.

If anyone knows this firsthand, it’s Rodriguez & Associates boss Daniel Rodriguez, who worked in the oilfields for years as a roustabout and mechanic. He knows firsthand how difficult and dangerous the work can be, and how important it is to give those injured by someone else’s negligence a chance for justice.

If you have been injured in an oilfield accident because of negligence, consider contacting an oilfield injury attorney and pursuing a claim. Please reach out to us today to discuss your case and receive support by filling out our online form or calling (661) 323-1400.

Rodriguez & Associates Files Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against Kern High School District

Friday, September 3, 2021

Rodriguez & Associates has filed a lawsuit against the Kern High School District on behalf of a minor who was sexually assaulted at school in 2019.

The victim we are representing was allegedly sexually assaulted in the classroom while class was going on.

Daniel Rodriguez was interviewed by ABC News Bakersfield saying that this is an unusual case, as most sexual assault crimes occur in secluded places. The person accused, who is also a minor, has a pattern of assaulting girls at the school.

Rodriguez told ABC News Bakersfield that:

“Our information is that the teacher in our case is no more than 10-15 feet away,” said Rodriguez. “Apparently, the assailant had a history of this. We say this because even though we are in the early stage of this court process, we found out that there were three other victims in addition to the girl we represent.”

The incident happened in November of 2019. The purpose of the lawsuit is to hold the district accountable and get answers.

Rodriguez says the training that teachers and staff get in trying to prevent these kinds of incidents or be aware of them is not good enough. Due diligence would include the school district catching the pattern of harmful behavior.

He hopes bringing awareness to this issue will help make schools a safer place for kids.

“The question becomes, how or why did the school district or the high school ignore it,” asked Rodriguez. “They either knew it, it’s hard to believe they didn’t know about the history, or at the very least, they should have known had they been doing their due diligence.”

If you suspect your child has been the victim of sex abuse while at school or in the care of educators, contact our Bakersfield personal injury attorneys. We have experience handling child molestation, sexual assault, and sexual abuse cases involving teachers, daycare staff, coaches, and other school workers. We are here to help and are adamant about protecting children throughout Kern County. Contact us to discuss your case and receive support by filling out our online form or calling (661) 323-1400.

Rodriguez & Associates Obtains $5M Settlement After the 1st Phase of Trial

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

With the help of this wonderful and dedicated jury, Rodriguez & Associates obtained a $5,000,000 settlement on behalf of their injured client.

Rodriguez & Associates

From the start, the defense denied liability and offered very little to resolve the case. Daniel Rodriguez, Chantal Trujillo, and Joseph Whittington worked tirelessly to represent their client while demanding the $5,000,000 insurance policy.

With Daniel’s quick-witted and compassionate approach to gain empathy and understanding from jurors, he won them over and was successful after the first phase when the jury found the defendants liable. The defendants conceded and offered up their insurance policy limits.

We are so happy for our client and congratulations to the Rodriguez & Associates team!

Common Injuries in a Slip and Fall Accident

Tuesday, August 10, 2021

Each year, millions of Americans seek emergency medical services after suffering injuries in a slip and fall accident. Slip and fall incidents can result in devastating harm, including spinal cord damage, soft tissue injuries, broken bones, and more. If someone else’s actions are responsible for your slip and fall, you may be eligible for financial compensation. 

Broken Bones

Broken bones and fractures are very common after a slip and fall accident. A fall can place a significant amount of stress and force on different parts of the body, leading to a fracture. The hips, knees, and wrists are especially susceptible to damage during these types of accidents. The risk of a broken bone during a slip and fall increases with age, meaning that elderly people are the most likely to suffer this type of injury.

Soft Tissue Injuries

The soft tissues refer to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin. During a slip and fall, these tissues can become strained, torn, or bruised, leading to severe pain and limited mobility. Symptoms of soft tissue injuries are not always immediately apparent after an accident and may not appear for days or even weeks after your initial accident. Without prompt treatment, however, soft tissue damage can lead to chronic pain. 

Traumatic Brain Damage

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) occur when you sustain any type of damage to your head. These injuries can occur when an object collides into you, when your head hits a hard surface, or when an object penetrates your skull. You can easily hit your head during a slip and fall accident, leading to a TBI and potentially life-altering complications.

Brain injuries can range from concussions, bumps, and bruises to more severe injuries, such as skull fractures, hemorrhages, and hematomas. However, any type of head injury can be extremely serious and should be treated like a medical emergency. If you hit your head after a slip and fall, seek medical attention immediately.

Spinal Cord Damage

The spinal cord is responsible for transmitting messages between our brain and the rest of our body. During a slip and fall accident, the vertebrae in the spinal cord can break or one of the discs in your back can slip or become herniated. Any back injury can result in serious pain and limited mobility, but spinal cord damage is often more severe.

Any damage to the spinal cord can result in permanent paralysis below the injury site. This type of injury may also result in neurologic disability and sensory impairment. Without prompt medical attention, spinal cord injuries can be fatal. 

What to Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, it is important to remain calm and seek help as soon as possible. If the fall occurs in a store or at another place of business, ask to fill out an incident report to document the accident. If you have sustained serious injuries or if the accident involved a crime, such as physical assault, call 911 and report the accident to law enforcement. Seek medical attention immediately after the accident and save all records related to your treatment and injuries. 

Once you receive medical attention, contact a California slip and fall accident attorney. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Speak to a lawyer as soon as possible following your accident to discuss your legal options.

Truck Driver Fatigue is a Leading Cause of Crashes

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

Some of the most devastating vehicle crashes are those that involve large commercial trucks. And one of the main causes of such crashes is driver fatigue. When those behind the wheel of a semi-truck, big rig, or other large commercial truck are fatigued or drowsy, they substantially increase the risk of causing a major accident. Many of those accidents are fatal.

In 2018, the most recent year for data, 4,951 people were killed in crashes involving large trucks in California. Of that number, 71 percent were occupants of other vehicles. 

Any person who drives while feeling fatigued increases their risk of causing an accident. Because of their size (the average semi-truck weighs 80,000 pounds and is 70 to 80 feet long), large commercial trucks can cause devastating damage to both property and lives if they are involved in a crash. Given that, truckers who drive while fatigued or exhausted take an inherently risky situation and make it even more dangerous. 

There are a few common causes of truck driver fatigue:

Driving for too long. Truck drivers in the U.S. are required by law to follow Hours of Service regulations. These stipulate how long they are allowed to drive and when they must take breaks.

Drivers carrying property (e.g., supplies, furniture, etc.) are legally allowed to drive a maximum of 11 hours, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. They may do so after having 10 consecutive hours of off-duty time.

Although driving hours are supposed to be monitored and enforced by electronic logs, drivers often go beyond these limits in order to meet a deadline. Trucking companies may not necessarily enforce the rules set down by Hours of Service regulations. Finally, even when a trucker follows the 11-hour maximum, they are still driving for an extremely long stretch of time and are at risk of extreme fatigue. 

Irregular driving schedules and inadequate sleep. Truckers don’t have schedules that follow a pattern of regular days and hours. Instead, they might work long stretches at a time that are then followed by lengthy periods off duty. Because of this, their sleeping patterns may be inconsistent, degrading the level of rest they actually get. For some, these irregular hours also make sleep more difficult, which can lead to fatigue over time. Over-the-counter sleep aids can increase this problem since they cause drowsiness that may not immediately wear off upon waking. 

Substance use. Substance use and abuse among truck drivers is a serious problem, with many drivers turning to “uppers” like amphetamines to stay awake during their long shifts. Unfortunately, one of the side-effects of such drugs is that they can cause extreme fatigue once they wear off, putting both the truck driver and others on the road at risk.

Unrealistic expectations. Some truck drivers feel enormous pressure from their trucking company or subcontractor to meet very tight deadlines. These deadlines do not always factor in traffic delays, weather problems, and other incidences on the road. Because of that, delivery deadlines can become unrealistic and force truckers to work longer hours than normal without breaks.  

Any of these things can lead to poor decision-making, delayed reactions, shorter attention spans, and even more aggressive behavior on the part of the truck driver or their trucking company. 

If you are involved in a truck accident, proving driver fatigue and negligence will be easier with the help of an experienced truck accident attorney. Rodriguez & Associates can assist you in navigating this complex area of litigation as you seek compensation for damages.

California Statistics and Laws on Drinking and Driving

Monday, July 26, 2021

Drinking and driving, or driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs, impairs a person’s ability to drive safely and threatens the well-being of other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians that they encounter on the road. 

Over the last 40 years, public information campaigns such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have set out to eliminate drunk driving through education, prevention, and enforcement by advocating for stricter laws to be passed for drunk driving offences, and while this has helped decrease the amount of DUIs nationwide, it has not ended the problem. In 2019, according to MADD, 10,142 people were killed due to drunk driving which makes it #1 cause of death on America’s roads. The state of California accounted for 1,066 of the nation’s drunk driving fatalities, approximately 10%. 

California Drinking and Driving Statistics 

The most comprehensive statistics for alcohol-impaired driving is from Responsibility.org for the year of 2018. 

  • Total alcohol-impaired driving fatalities: 1,069
  • Under 21 alcohol-impaired driving fatalities: 113
  • 69.8% of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities had a BAC of 0.15+
  • 77.9% of drivers with BAC 0.15+ were repeat offenders
  • Total DUI arrests: 127,250 (Nationwide: 1,001,329)

California Drunk Driving Laws

In California, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher. The law does not distinguish between prescription, over-the-counter or illegal drugs. If the drug or medication impairs your ability to drive safely, you can still be charged with a DUI.

California has enforced tougher laws for first time and repeat offenders in an effort to reduce, and hopefully eliminate, drunk driving on our roads. Here is a summary of laws about driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) handbook. 

  • It is illegal to use or possess alcohol or cannabis products in a vehicle. Any open containers must be stored in the trunk or where passengers do not sit.
  • It is illegal for any person to operate a vehicle with the following BAC limits:
    • 0.08% or higher, if the person is 21 years +
    • 0.01% or higher, if the person is under 21 years old
    • 0.04% or higher, when a passenger for hire is in the vehicle at the time of the offense
  • It is illegal for drivers under 21 years of age to carry alcohol inside a vehicle unless accompanied by a parent or other person as specified by law and the container is full, sealed, and unopened. If caught, the car may be impounded for up to 30 days, driving privileges may be suspended for up to 1 year or delay the issuance of a first driver’s license for up to 1 year, or a fine of up to $1000 may be charged.

Similar laws also prohibit riding bikes and scooters or driving boats under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

We Represent DUI Accident Victims in Kern County and California

A victim of a drunk driving accident can suffer physically, emotionally, and financially. Medical bills can pile up, they may not be able to work or perform their job as before, and their mental state may be different due to the accident. The criminal court system can punish a drunk driver for the accident, but it does not compensate victims of the accident. 

This is when a victim of a drunk driving accident would seek expert legal representation to pursue claims in a civil court for recovery of monetary damages from medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages from missed work, property damage, and/or modifications to a home or car because of the injuries incurred. Our experienced personal injury attorneys at Rodriguez & Associates, are standing by to represent you or a loved one who has been injured as a result of a DUI accident. We will do everything possible to hold the wrongdoer accountable.

What to Do if Your Uber Has Been in an Accident

Wednesday, July 7, 2021

Many Bakersfield residents rely on rideshare services such as Uber or Lyft to travel from place to place. While these services may seem safe and reliable, Uber and Lyft drivers are not exempt from accidents. If you are in a collision while riding in an Uber or Lyft, it is important to remain calm and take a series of important steps to gather evidence, protect yourself, and secure the compensation you need to recover. 

Call 911

First, call 911 and report the accident to law enforcement. The responding officer will create a police report that you can use to prove your case. Collect the officer’s name and badge number so you can find the report later.

Seek Medical Attention

As soon as possible following the accident, seek emergency medical attention. Save all documents related to your treatment and injuries. These medical records will provide valuable evidence in your case, helping prove the nature and extent of the harm that you suffered in the collision.

You should always seek medical treatment, even if you do not feel hurt. You may have internal injuries that you are not aware of, and prolonged treatment could lead to serious complications. Additionally, failure to seek medical attention could harm your case’s credibility.

Record Important Information

After your accident, you will likely need to file an insurance claim against the Uber or Lyft driver or the rideshare company’s internal insurance policy. To file your claim, you will need to collect the following pieces of information from your rideshare driver.

  • The driver’s name, address, and phone number
  • The driver’s personal insurance information
  • Information about the Uber or Lyft insurance policy
  • The registration number, license plate, make, and model for the driver’s vehicle

You may not know who is at fault for the accident at this stage. To ensure that you have access to all available options, speak to the other driver involved in the collision. Collect his or her contact information, license and vehicle details, and insurance policy information for use in your future case. A California rideshare accident lawyer can evaluate your case and help you identify who is responsible for your accident. 

Document Evidence at the Scene

If you are able to move around the accident scene after the collision, you can gather other pieces of evidence that you can use in your future claim. Take photographs of your injuries, property damage, and the area around the accident. You should also photograph any damage to the driver’s vehicle. 

You can also take a screenshot of your Uber or Lyft app to prove that you were a passenger in the driver’s vehicle at the time of the accident. If there are any witnesses who saw the accident happen, ask for their names and contact information for use in your future claim. These individuals could provide valuable testimony on your behalf.

Contact an Attorney

As soon as possible after your collision, contact a Bakersfield rideshare accident lawyer to discuss your case and legal options. Navigating an Uber or Lyft accident claim can be complicated due to the presence of multiple insurance policies, and you may need assistance identifying your optimal path to compensation. 

A rideshare accident attorney can help you strategize your case and advocate for the recovery you deserve. He or she can evaluate your accident, conduct a full-scale investigation, and gather the evidence you need to secure maximum compensation. Speak to an attorney as soon as possible following your accident to discuss your legal options.

What is the California Good Samaritan Law?

Saturday, June 5, 2021

When you encounter an emergency situation, you may try to act as a Good Samaritan and help any injured victims instead of walking away from the scene. However, our actions may end up causing more harm than good—which often opens us up to civil liability. In these situations, California’s Good Samaritan laws can protect you from civil repercussions and allow you to render aid instead of worrying about potential litigation.

Who Qualifies As a Good Samaritan in California?

Under California Health and Safety Code Section 1799.102, a Good Samaritan is a person who renders emergency care to another and acts in good faith. A Good Samaritan provides this care without expecting compensation for his or her actions. As a result, this person will not face civil liability for any actions or omissions that may occur while providing aid.

Good Samaritan laws are important for several reasons. When someone is injured, it can take a long time for medical personnel to arrive at the scene. In these situations, emergency care from bystanders could increase the victim’s chances of survival. With Good Samaritan laws in place, bystanders have the opportunity to help others without worrying about potential liability, protecting both parties in an emergency situation.

Civil versus Criminal Liability

California’s Good Samaritan law protects bystanders from civil liability or paying for a victim’s economic and non-economic damages if they harm someone while providing aid. If a person sustains an injury due to the actions of another, he or she may file a lawsuit against the person responsible for the injury to recover compensatory damages related to his or her losses. These damages may include the following.

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and loss of future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Chronic pain, disability, and disfigurement
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Disability accommodations
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Loss of quality of life

If a bystander renders aid in good faith, he or she will be exempt from civil liability if his or her actions injure the victim. However, California’s Good Samaritan law does not provide exemptions for criminal liability. If a bystander commits a crime while rendering aid, such as stealing the victim’s wallet or committing sexual assault, he or she can still face criminal charges for this act.

Exemptions to the Good Samaritan Law

Protection under California’s Good Samaritan laws does not apply to situations involving gross negligence or willful or wanton misconduct. Gross negligence refers to a lack of any care while providing aid, or a departure from what a reasonably careful person would do in the same situation. On the other hand, willful and wanton misconduct involves an intentional or reckless disregard for others’ safety.

For example, if a bystander encounters a person who is injured in a car accident and pulls him or her out of the vehicle, he or she will not be liable if he or she accidentally breaks the victim’s leg while dragging the victim to safety. However, if the bystander pulls the victim out of the vehicle and abandons the victim in the middle of the road, he or she may be liable for any injuries that occur.

If you are injured due to a Good Samaritan’s actions or are facing liability for providing aid to another person, it is important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. A California personal injury lawyer can evaluate your case and identify your optimal legal options. Contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case.
