California truck accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin recently filed suit for two heroic clients. Our clients were on a California interstate when they were faced with a situation most people would ignore: they saw a motorist drift into the guardrail of an overpass bridge. Our clients took it upon themselves to stop and render aid, knowing that no one else could. But as they were trying to help the man, an inattentive 18-wheeler driver slammed into the man’s vehicle, killing him, and throwing our clients off the bridge onto the hard concrete below.
There's a substantial cost to the physical and mental trauma of watching a man die and falling from a height. The injuries our clients sustained are life changing, and their road to recovery has just begun. However, these two men of indomitable spirit will fight to regain their strength, and we’ll fight on their behalf to hold the trucking company accountable for their reckless actions.
The suit was filed in Kern County, California.
