Car Accident Attorneys

In Oakland alone, more than 3,000 people are injured or killed in traffic collisions each year. The majority of these incidents are caused by multiple factors that can easily be prevented. These factors include distractions, speed, and alcohol.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, nearly eight percent of all serious crashes in Oakland involved a drunk driver, and speed was a factor in almost 20 percent of the accidents in Alameda County.

The Oakland car accident lawyers at Cellino & Barnes have decades of combined experience fighting for victims of these serious motor vehicle crashes. We are committed to providing our Oakland car accident clients with solid legal representation. This includes fully investigating an accident to determine what factors were at play. In some cases, this can help maximize the value of a personal injury case.

Cellino & Barnes has helped accident victims obtain more than $2 billion in settlements and verdicts.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are some of the most devastating types of crashes to impact families in Northern California. These collisions cause over 75,000 injuries across the nation each year. Unfortunately, since the Bay Area has several major crossroads for shipping routes, many of these accidents happen in Oakland.

Truck accidents are most often caused by these four factors:

  1. Fatigue:  Truckers often travel 11 hours or more each day, and they’re required to submit rest logs. Even with these safeguards in place, fatigue continues to be a major factor in U.S. truck crashes, causing thousands of accidents each year.
  2. Jack-knife:  When a truck driver suddenly stops, or loses control of the big rig, the tractor-trailer can jack-knife. This not only snarls traffic; it can cause catastrophic injuries if a passenger vehicle is caught in its path.
  3. Turning:  Since trucks are very large, they often use several lanes of traffic to make tight turns. In many cases, a miscalculated turn can sometimes result in striking a pedestrian or another vehicle.
  4. Bad Brakes:  Large trucks need much more time to stop than the standard passenger vehicle. Often times, trucks carry 72 times more weight, making brakes one of the most important components that can prevent an accident. When brakes fail, or do not work properly, a rear-end collision with a passenger vehicle can cause serious neck and back injuries.

Large trucks include tractor-trailers and commercial box trucks. If you or someone you love has suffered an injury in an Oakland truck accident, we ask that you contact our Oakland truck accident attorneys, as soon as possible.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
