Commercial Truck Accidents

When commercial trucks collide with passenger vehicles on California’s roads, the results are often devastating. While trucks play the vital role of transporting goods throughout the state, the immense size and weight of these vehicles make them dangerous. Our experienced accident lawyers understand the devastating nature of truck accidents and have been committed to fighting for accident victims for nearly 20 years.

Life-Changing Injuries After San Bernardino Truck Accidents

After a trucking accident, victims in passenger vehicles rarely walk away without injury. Instead, they almost always end up facing devastating injuries. Some of the most common injuries that our lawyers see are:

  • Bone fractures
  • Facial injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Lost limbs
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Regardless of the injuries you suffer, seek the assistance of an attorney who will be sympathetic and look out for your best interests, not just the quick buck.

Compensation after San Bernardino Truck Accidents

There is no amount of money that can truly compensate for injuries as you can’t buy health. Settlements, however, can pay for the various losses you incur after an accident.  Our lawyers help victims recover a variety of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses.  The amount that can be recovered for medical expenses often includes the cost of future medical care including medication and therapy, particularly when serious injuries are involved.
  • Lost income.  Compensation from truck accidents is designed to cover things like lost wages and loss of earning capacity if a truck accident leaves a person unable to work and bring in an income.
  • Property damage.  You can seek reimbursement for repair and replacement of any items damaged during a truck accident.

How a Skilled San Bernardino Accident Attorney Can Help

To resolve liability issues, it is critical to perform a thorough investigation.  Preservation of witness statements and black box data must be done.  Some of the parties who against whom compensation can often be pursued include:

  • Truck drivers, whose negligence might have directly caused the accident
  • Trucking companies who may be responsible for inadequate maintenance
  • Negligent cargo loader
  • Manufacturers of defective truck parts

One of the many challenges presented by trucking accidents is that there are often multiple parties potentially responsible for the accident. An experienced accident attorney can help preserve evidence and identify the correct parties in your case.

Client Testimonials

John-Paul took my civil case when no one else would because other lawyers didn’t have confidence in my daughter who has special needs to testify, if needed. John-Paul won her case against the school district without a jury because he cared about my child, believed she was honest and deserved justice. He still doesn’t mind taking my calls whenever I have a question regarding her case.

Dionne L.

Mr. Serrao worked on my DUI charge earlier this year and all I can say is WOW! Not only did he keep me updated with the case but his knowledge of the process helped calm my nerves, which was very important to me. He showed care for me as a client and I can’t thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a quality criminal defense attorney.

Derrick J.

I had the pleasure of working a very large scale drug case with Mr. Serrao, representing co-defendants. Mr. Serrao was a pleasure to work with. Highly skilled and very aggressive in his advocacy on his client’s behalf. I highly recommend Mr. Serrao for anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.

Babak Farahan

Attorney John Paul-Serrao helped us to win our case against the insurance company after we were involved in a traffic accident where our car was rear ended, we tried to handle it ourselves with the insurance company and they did not want to cooperate with us, so we hired Mr. Serrao and he was able to get us a settlement above with the insurance company was willing to pay. I would highly recommend him.

Occasionally you meet another attorney who is so impressive both personally and professionally that you want to be affiliated with them in any way you can both personally and professionally. That is how I feel about John-Paul. I not only consider him one of the finest attorneys I know, but I now proudly call him my friend. He is among the very best.

David Booth

John-Paul is well known in our community as a smart and effective criminal defense lawyer who is sensitive to his clients’ situations and responsive to their needs. I refer my clients to him with confidence when they need help with the criminal justice system.

Lawrence Brock

John-Paul is an extremely effective criminal defense attorney. The one thing that makes him stand out from other defense attorneys is that he talks to his clients to learn the circumstances surrounding their incident and then he makes a forceful and articulate argument in defense of his clients. I recommend my clients to John-Paul when they are in need of a criminal defense attorney because I know he will stand up for them.

Stephen Rinka

John-Paul is a superb attorney. He was my mentor when I was in law school, and now as an attorney I still go to him for advice on complex cases. When my brother required representation I referred him to John-Paul. That is how highly I think of JP as an attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs representation.
