While the Bay Area is desirable and beautiful places to live, car accidents cause serious injury, death and property damage each year. Thankfully, cars are increasingly safer and more efficient with new technologies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the number of car accidents and injuries are decreasing as well.
Here’s what our Bay Area car accident lawyers will do to pursue justice for you:
For those injured in an auto accident, many times, it is a life-changing event and can cause lasting damage that is not only physical but emotional and financial.
Medical bills can stack up quickly. Repairing a vehicle to the condition it was before the accident is not always possible. Loss of work is not uncommon due to physical pain and therapy needed to recover medically.
Often, insurance companies seek to limit their exposure to financial liability of auto accidents. When you’re injured, financially stressed, you’re vehicle is damaged or undrivable and you’re unable to work, what do you do after the insurance company denies the claim?
The right time to call an accident attorney is as soon as possible. The insurance companies have high powered lawyers working on their corporate client’s behalf to minimize any settlement due you. Most victims are unaware of their full legal rights when involved in an car wreck.
Additionally, many victims don’t realize that they may have been tricked into waiving certain protections rightfully due them.
Injury accidents can be traumatic leaving victims confused and disoriented. The adrenaline is pumping and a you may not realize the severity of your physical injuries until hours or even days later.

Accidents occur every day on Sacramento highways. Those involving trucks, aka big-rigs, semi-trucks or tractor-trailers, are often the most costly and devastating. The reason is clear, as semi-trucks weigh approximately 18,000 pounds compared to an average car of 4,000 pounds.
Even when a car collides with a tractor-trailer there aren’t many accidents more deadly and is the #1 reason you should consult an expert Bay Area truck accident lawyer.
What should you do if you've been involved in an accident with a Semi truck?
Underride accidents happen when a passenger vehicle gets crushed under the rear or side of a Semi truck. Side underride collisions are severely life-threatening especially at night when a crossing semi, with colors that closely resemble the colors in its background, will be more troublesome to see.
Generally, underride accidents occur at night. Most semis include standard equipment box trailers having enough contrasting colors to be seen during the day. However a low sun angle can make it hard to see during daylight for obvious reasons. Trucks carrying protruding loads, like pipes or lumber, are also at a larger risk of underride accidents during daytime hours.
Rollovers are another dangerous accident involving trucks. This happens when a semi-truck travels over a loose surface and the driver overcorrects to try and regain control by steering back onto the pavement. This often rolls the truck onto its side resulting in injury not only to the truck driver but also unsuspecting cars and motorcycles nearby.
Truck accident lawyers at Phoong Law Corp have handled numerous settlements involving commercial trucks. These vehicles can easily weigh 20 times what an average passenger vehicle weighs. And, as a result of the danger truck accidents pose, truck drivers carry an additional level of responsibility and liability.
At Phoong Law Corp we represent victims of truck accidents and other acts of negligence. We work to help our clients obtain medical care and compensation for the injuries and damage they’ve received.

Injuries sustained in a pedestrian vs. vehicle accident are often catastrophic. In fact, according to OTS (California Office of Traffic Safety) pedestrian fatalities increased 5.9% percent from 819 in 2015 to 867 in 2016.
The data we have for pedestrian incidents comes exclusively from police reports. Some researchers believe police collision reports have limitations and do not account for all crashes that occured on our roads. Specifically, this data excludes crash data that happened on non-roadway locations, like parking lots, driveways and sidewalks.
Therefore the numbers of pedestrian fatalities and severe injuries is much higher than reported.
Closer to home, in Sacramento County, the most current data we have from 2018 shows we had 531 pedestrian collisions. Of those, 30% were fatal or involved severe injury. 31% exhibited visible injury and 38% complained of pain as reported by SafeTrec.
By far the number one type of pedestrian collision is with a vehicle. 87% of collisions are between a car or truck and a pedestrian. There’s no other type of collision that comes close. The next nearest type of pedestrian accident is broadside at 3%.
There are community pedestrian training programs that teach pedestrian safety. One such program is California Walks which works with local residents and safety advocates to develop a community-driven action plan to improve walking safety in their communities. If you’re interested please get involved.
The impact of a car itself and the impact on the ground afterwards can lead to severe trauma to the head, neck, and spine that leave lasting effects. This results in extensive medical bills and also lost days of work during rehabilitation.
If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident, you need to hire a Sacramento pedestrian accident attorney who understands your unique situation and will fight the insurance companies for you and take them to trial if need be.
