Inland Empire City
San Bernardino is in the Inland Empire and is one of the largest cities with a population of over 209,900.1 The surrounding area is less congested than the coastal areas, and there are lots of big rig trucks and tour bus routes leading in and out of the State. The combination of heavy vehicles and high speeds is known to result in cataclysmic events.2 Of historic note, this city is where the McDonald brothers founded McDonalds restaurant in 1948, and where residents can enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities like hiking, bike riding, etc. The city boasts the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra, and Blair Skatepark, along with the many other attractions for both young and old in the Inland Empire city.3
Even though this is a city filled with things for residents to do, the national statistics for motor vehicle accidents4 occurring every six seconds does not skip the city of San Bernardino and its crowded roadways.5 Traffic accidents, slip and fall injuries, and other accidents occur and can be devastating physically, emotionally and financially. These incidents also result in disabling injuries and fatalities.6 One of the examples of the tragic mishaps that can occur is the February 21, 2011 bus collision. This happened in the San Bernardino Mountains on Highway 189, where a passenger bus collided with another vehicle on the road, when the driver lost control of the bus. The bus was filled with middle and high school students returning from a weekend church retreat. The collision resulted in over twenty people being injured and one person killed.7
After a roadway incident, the injured victim will typically find it beneficial to seek financial damages from the other person, or parties responsible for the accident and their insurance company. The person that sustains injuries should not be required to shoulder the financial expenses that result from the accident when someone else was at fault. The law provides the protection for the person suffering injuries occurring from careless, reckless or negligent actions of another person.
