In any civil case, you, as the plaintiff, are going to have one version of the facts of the case. The defense is very often going to have a version of the facts that differs, many times dramatically, from your version. The key to success, then, is having stronger proof that makes your version of the facts more credible. In other words, find the evidence you need to debunk the defense’s theory of the case and you may be well on your way to a successful outcome. When it comes to acquiring and interpreting the information you need for your case, be sure to rely on representation from a skilled San Mateo injury attorney.
As reported by trucking publication landlinemag.com, K.G. was a spouse having to deal with an unthinkable trauma: her husband had died in a vehicle accident. Prior to the accident, a commercial truck driver had parked his big rig alongside the shoulder of the transition lane between two freeways in Pomona. Before he could move his truck, a box truck slammed into the semi. Allegedly, another driver cut off the box truck and the box truck driver swerved to avoid that collision, only to crash into the corner of the semi.
The accident left both the semi driver and K.G.’s husband, who was a passenger in the box truck, dead. K.G. sued the trucking company that employed the deceased driver, alleging that the driver was negligent in parking where he did and that his negligence caused the crash and the box truck passenger’s fatal injuries.
