Stockton has a lot of truck accident claims due to its position near major transport highways. Car vs. truck accidents are especially common on the I-5 Freeway. Due to their massive size and weight, truck accidents involving passenger vehicles typically have severe to catastrophic injuries. These are also tricky claims to pursue as you usually have multiple defendants and there may be more vehicles involved. You need a skilled truck accident lawyer who understands the complexities of these cases and will ensure your rights are protected.
Stockton has seen its fair share of pedestrian accidents. People rushing to get to work and finish their errands aren’t always looking out for hazards or approaching pedestrians. Some streets are more dangerous for pedestrians than others, making it even more critical that drivers carefully monitor their surroundings. If you suffered injuries as a pedestrian in Stockton, speak with one of our lawyers as soon as possible.
GJEL has recovered over $10 million for motorcycle accident victims in the Stockton area. Like pedestrians and bicyclists, motorcycle riders are more exposed and lack the same safety features that occupants in a vehicle have. Motorcycle riders also face certain prejudices from other drivers. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, it’s crucial to retain an experienced Stockton motorcycle accident lawyer.
Stockton is in desperate need of safety improvements for bicyclists and pedestrians, as the city has too many fatalities in these types of accidents. If you were injured or someone you love passed away in a bicycle accident, let the skilled legal team at GJEL Accident Attorneys help.
