  • As noted, we have received industry recognition. (Learn More.)

And you will need legal experience like ours to max the value of your case. Why is that? Simple. In personal injury claims, the circumstances or parties surrounding the accident can be complex. It can often involve difficult legal situations.

Then, adding insult to injury, large insurance companies often use these unfair tactics to take advantage.

  • IMPORTANT: Unrepresented negligence victims often get steamrolled by insurers!

These victims become dupes because no-one helped to protect their legal rights. And the phone conversations with the adjusters questioning you are routinely recorded.

  • One leading question and one honest wrong answer can become twisted to create doubt.

So in the minds of decision makers, they get to pay you less money, or nothing at all. Thus, this can spell death for some of the most severe claims.

Since later your credibility can get called into question. So if you were in a San Bernardino accident today, whether you made a report or not, we may be able to snatch your victory from the jaws of defeat.

Insurance Companies Want You to Lose But We Help You Win Your Injury Case!

Let's say you were in a San Bernardino car accident last night, for example, you may have just gotten out of the hospital. In many cases, you're tired and on pain meds. So you deal with the adjuster and he or she acts nice.

But the adjuster will say your case is not worth much, then delay you and act as though you have plenty of time to gather evidence and obtain medical care.

Since you may be browbeaten, and tired, you may procrastinate right? Or worse, you may think your case is worthless, or of little value. So you might sleep on your rights.

  • So now you will delay in seeking personal injury protection.
  • But in fact, this delay can discourage a potential future legal representative from taking your case. Hence, you may feign from even making a claim.
  • Remember that insurance companies want you to slip up, or say the wrong thing.

And they know how to ask questions in such a way as to make you look like a liar. It is of paramount importance after an accident to consult an experienced negligence lawyer.

You must discuss the claim with a personal injury expert and to learn your legal options today!

What are the Inland Empire City Injury Statistical Risks?

Understanding risk mitigation is also an important part of avoiding injuries. San Bernardino is in the Inland Empire and is one of the largest cities with a population of over 209,900 (SB Growth Forecast.)

The surrounding area is less congested than the coastal regions, and there are lots of big rig trucks and tour bus routes leading in and out of the State through this passageway to the commercial areas of the west.

The combination of heavy vehicles and high speeds is known to result in cataclysmic events. (Famous Accidents in San Bernardino http://www.pe.com/.)

Of historical note, this city is where the McDonald brothers founded McDonald's restaurant in 1948. It is a large geographic area, but thinly populated when compared to most of L.A.

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. (Other Info About SB County.)

What Are the Accident Numbers and Causes?

We don't have exact numbers on each private establishment that has been sued. But we do know that people slip and fall on private and public sidewalks, and at coffee shops and grocery stores. We also know there are more bad falls after heavy rains.

We also know that delivery vehicles are blasting around town at high speeds. Plus, there are always Caltrans trucks and road workers along the freeways and side streets.

The national statistics show motor that vehicle accidents occur every six seconds. And they do not skip the city of San Bernardino. Also, the only real difference between a city like Long Beach, is that there are so many big trucks.

Furthermore, they are driving at higher open freeway speeds. The San Bernardino Traffic Report confirms this as well. These are risks that can easily lead to the death of a motorcyclist, or bystander.

Are there Statistics on the Number Of Traffic Accident and Fatalities in San Bernardino?

Yes and no. Below we have provided the San Bernardino traffic fatality statistics for year 2014. Unfortunately, we don't have totals on numbers of non fatal wrecks.

Nor is there a lot of historical data other than from news stories on total number of deaths and car crashes in San Bernardino over time.

But clearly, these are alarming stats for any vehicle operator or occupant in SB. Note that most of these wrecks took place along the:

What Were the Total Recorded San Bernardino Vehicle Fatalities in Year 2014?

  • 50 Vehicles Were in Deadly Wrecks
  • 34 Accidents Killed 35 People
  • 10 DUI Fatalities
  • 72 People Were Involved in these 35 Deaths
  • 18 Pedestrians died in fatal vehicle accidents (Source.)

What are the types of vehicular traffic accidents ELFPI can help you with?

  • Passenger car accidents
  • Bus Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Big Rig Truck Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Hit and Run (Uninsured and Underinsured motorist claims.)
  • DUI accidents
  • Train Accidents
  • Airplane and Helicopter Crashes, etc.

There are also many work-related injuries we can help with from manufacturing.

Also, injuries arise from other industrial activity going on here including:

  • Warehouse accidents. (large facilities like Home Depot are known for falling objects, head injuries, and even death).
  • Sweatshop safety violations and are known to exist here. (See also “wage and hour claims”).
  • Falling off of a ladder.
  • A slip and fall in a factory. (banging your head, or busting your knee, are all real possibilities).

What About Negligent Security Cases?

Since it is a lower income area with a recent influx of thugs from Los Angeles City, some of the nightclubs and bars will need to hire additional and competent security. They need to protect their patrons and their property.

But sometimes they hire bad security, and these bouncers hurt innocent people or exceed the reasonable use of force. We sue for this type of nonsense.

What is the Potential For Civil Rights Related Injuries in San Bernardino?

The recent influx of African Americans to San Bernardino also brings with it the increased probability of a false arrest or excessive use of force lawsuit. We help the victims of all personal injuries and civil rights violations.

  • A police shooting is an example of a physical injury that could very well become a civil rights case.

But any injury or accident that occurs here can be devastating physically, emotionally and financially.

These incidents, whether from a terrible car crash or from being punched out by a bad cop, can also result in permanently disabling injuries and fatalities.

  • Recent Example of a Bus Accident Case in San Bernardino

One of the examples of the tragic mishaps that can occur here, is February 21, 2011, bus collision in the San Bernardino Mountains on Highway 189. A passenger bus collided with another vehicle on the road when the driver lost control of the bus.

The bus contained middle and high school students returning from a weekend church retreat. The collision resulted in over twenty people injured and one person killed.

Understanding the personality of the community, means you pay particular attention to the above perils as a consumer and try to avoid them.

But as can be seen in the above example, the driver lost control. No matter what you do, you cannot control everything. So short of not going out in public, there is a real risk of injuries to people and property in this fair city.

“Do or Die” is how we handle our cases. Our dedicated representatives and staff members have dedication. So we move fast to evaluate every potential client’s case. And they do this as if it were their own. Then they determine what the legal options are and provide legal guidance.

Also, the law firm attorneys have high standards of ethics, and professionalism. Additionally, they provide the best quality representation for our clients. As always, we work on a contingency fee basis. Hence, we don’t win unless you win too!


Having a Lawyer Helps Protects The Time Limitations to Sue?

Yes it does, but only if the lawyer know what to do. There is no way to know when a disaster will take place. But when one does, and it results in injuries, seeking legal advice is crucial for the future of you and those whom you love.

In cases against the government, a consumer only has six months to make a proper claim with the City Clerk. So a claim may get filed for dangerous road conditions, for example. But it may also need to get served on another government agent too.

  • How does a client preserve their right to sue a government entity? Only a lawyer can help.

The vast majority of people who got run over by city work trucks. Some injuries are from a falling object from a scaffolding on a town or county work detail. It follows that many have no idea that they have to get an exclusive claim filed rights away that.

Most important to know is that the government has sovereign immunity. So you lose unless you follow the statutory rules under the Government Code.

Must Cases Against Private Actors Also Be Acted Upon Fast?

Even when the case is not a Tort Claims Act matter like the above examples, you cannot sleep on your legal rights. It is a case against a private company or citizen you cannot sit idle.

Besides losing the ability to respond rapidly when seeking to build the case value, there is still a limited period to sue non-state actors. All this info is in the California Codes (See also “Statute of Limitations”.)

Having a great lawyer ensures your claim will get filed in the right court, within the statutory period. Also, the law requires an application to get filed before the right becomes extinguished

By all accounts, early legal representation preserves the statute. Also, it helps you locate other things like valuable documents. So before these terms and things disappear, you can find notes on the backs of matchbooks, for example.

  • You may also be able to recover emails, and penned out statements from people who saw what happened. So this will get gathered and protected.

Does Expert Representation Also Afford You Credibility?

Of course it does. Defense insurance adjusters are notorious for letting the statute run out in an unrepresented person’s claim while pretending to be helping all the while, running out the amount of time the law allows for suing.

  • Our law firm offers case evaluations at no cost or obligation to you, and we are willing to advise you of your legal options quickly.
  • If you are immobile, we will meet you wherever it is convenient to you.
  • We do what it takes to earn your confidence and rescue your case from the jaws of defeat.

What Are Some Valuable Injury Avoidance and Post Injury Help Resources?

Although we cannot reccomend anything officially, we have found these below resources helpful in researching claims and in finding help for our past clients after a bad smash up.

Contact Us.

There are many reasons for retaining help after a roadway incident or some other calamity. Usually, the injured victim is seeking financial damages from another driver, or landlord responsible for the accident. Typically a claim is made against an insurance company.

The idea is that the person sustaining injuries should not have to to shoulder the financial expenses. And these will often result from the crash, or dangerous condition on property, where someone else was at fault. The law provides protection for the person suffering injuries.

So those occurring from careless, reckless or negligent actions of another person are compensable. Contacting us is your first step in getting that financial recovery you are seeking.
