Last year's Portola Valley fatal bicycle accident has now resulted in a wrongful death lawsuit against the truck driver involved in the collision and his employer. The truck versus bicycle accident occurred last November and ended in the death of a 47-year-old Los Altos Hills woman.
The truck driver and his company have now counter-sued, seeking indemnity from San Mateo County. The suit alleged that the accident was "caused by a dangerous condition on public property created on or maintained by the County of San Mateo." A representative of the company notes "The road is poorly designed and can be a 'trap for bicyclists."
If you or a loved one has been injured seriously injured in an accident, it is critical to contact an experienced California personal injury attorney to explore your options and seek compensation for your harm.
Several different sources of fault may exist for one accident, each leading to different theories and avenues of recovery. In some cases, driver error may be to blame. In others, an employer may have negligently hired a driver, or may push drivers to perform under unsafe conditions. And in others, such as is alleged here, roadway design or maintenance may have a direct correlation to an accident.
An experienced accident attorney will investigate all the factors surrounding a particular incident and be able to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

A Monterey big rig accident on Highway 101 resulted in minor injuries, as well as major delays. The California truck accident occurred early Friday morning near Espinoza Road.
If you have been injured in a truck accident, contact a California truck accident lawyer immediately to protect your rights and begin investigating the factors involved.
Here, a truck loaded with thousands of pounds of vegetables overturned, leading to one highway lane being closed while crews clean up the site. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
While no one was seriously injured in this big rig accident, it is important to keep in mind the potential for danger when trucks lose control. Because of the sheer magnitude of force behind an 18-wheeler, when a big rig loses traction on a slippery road, or its brakes fails on a decline, or its driver has to maneuver quickly to avoid colliding with another vehicle, serious and even fatal injuries can occur.
Those injured in trucking accidents may suffer significant harm, including physical and emotional injuries and pain and suffering. While sometimes truck driver error is to blame for an accident, many times other factors such as defective parts, roadway conditions or employer demands may be responsible.
