In a recent case out of Alameda County of Alameda, Lopez v. County of Alameda, the family of a mother who was fatally killed in a pedestrian/truck accident will receive a $2.65 million settlement. In 2007 the woman, along with her husband and children, were jogging along the shoulder of Patterson Pass Road, when the driver, Luis Quezada, of a truck lost control on a curve and fatally struck Lopez. The family sued both the trucking company who employed Quezada and the county, alleging that poor roadway design contributed to the accident.

If you or a loved one has been in a serious accident or suffered a wrongful death, it is important to contact an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your case.

Here, as is common in many personal injury lawsuits, many factors were involved. First, issues of driver liability – was the driver reckless or careless? Also, was the truck company responsible at all? Many times the company that employs a driver who acts negligently may be held liable as well. Additionally poor roadway design can contribute to creating a dangerous environment. Examples include where pedestrians lack a safe passageway or where insufficient signage exists, a county or other governmental body may be held responsible.

A careful examination of all the facts and circumstances involved in any personal injury lawsuit can help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. For more information, or if you have been injured in a serious accident contact the dedicated Sacramento personal injury lawyer at Sette Law Office.
