Car accidents are responsible for over 250,000 injuries in California every year. Car accidents happen every day in Hayward, and unfortunately many of those result in serious injuries. In fact, there were 9 fatal accidents within the city limits in 2019.
No matter how safely you drive, there is no guarantee that other drivers will drive as safely. If the worst happens, having an experienced car accident lawyer in your corner can make a big difference. GJEL has handled hundreds of cases in Hayward and has recovered over $10 million dollars for residents who have been injured or killed in a car accident.
GJEL specializes in all types of serious injury cases including truck accident cases. Vehicle accidents that involve semi-trucks or tractor trailers typically cause more damage and injuries due to the size of the vehicles. In the past few years, we’ve seen
- One killed and three hurt in a fatal truck crash off I-880 (August 9, 2016);
- An acid truck started leaking on I-880, halting traffic (August 24, 2018); and
- A fatal truck accident occurred on highway 92 (August 25, 2018).
Accident cases also differ from accidents involving cars with respect to who may be liable. Commercial freight companies own many large semi trucks you see. In some circumstances, you may be able to obtain compensation from these companies as well.
GJEL has successfully helped hundreds of victims who have been injured in truck accidents throughout Hayward and Alameda County and has recovered over ten million dollars for our clients injured in truck accident cases. Hiring a truck accident lawyer with a strong understanding of the complexity of these cases can help maximize your results.
