San Bernardino is a city with a rich historical legacy, reflected in everything from its current demographic makeup to its architecture. Residents and visitors can observe cultural influences of Indigenous tribes, Spanish missionaries, Mexican migrants, and Mormon refugees all over scenic San Bernardino, which is nestled picturesquely between the mountains and the desert. A cultural hub of the Inland Empire, San Bernardino is home to many international consulates, as well as multiple highly regarded institutions of higher education. Although the image of San Bernardino has been tarnished in recent years by fiscal missteps and tragic incidents of violence, the city and her residents have bounced back and demonstrated their resilience in the face of difficulties.
At The Dominguez Firm, we recognize this resilience that so characterizes San Bernardinians in our injured clients, who we have spent more than three decades representing in personal injury claims. We are proud to serve the city and greater San Bernardino County area, providing experienced and high quality legal representation for accident victims, and supporting them and their families while they navigate the difficult road to recovery and fair compensation.

What Causes Injuries in San Bernardino?
Each day, hundreds of San Bernardino residents suffer debilitating or catastrophic injuries, or sometimes death, because of someone else’s negligence. Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of preventable injuries and death in the United States, according to the CDC. The California Office of Traffic Safety reported that in 2016 in San Bernardino County there were:
- 16,263 traffic accident related injuries and fatalities
- 906 motorcycle related injuries and fatalities
- 618 pedestrian injuries and fatalities
- 337 bicycle related injuries and fatalities
- 982 hit-and-runs
- 3,701 injuries and fatalities involved speeding
- 1,766 injuries and fatalities involved alcohol
San Bernardino residents are more likely than both the national and California-state average to die in a motor vehicle accident—with male and African-American San Bernardino residents substantially more likely to suffer a traffic fatality than the national average.
In 2017 alone, San Bernardino area hospitals admitted more than 16,000 trauma patients, and emergency department visits have been steadily increasing in recent years—a sign that unintentional injuries continue to be a serious social problem.
Accidents and unintentional injuries are especially risky for children. According to the CDC:
- A child dies every hour from an injury, on average
- About 1 in 5 child deaths is due to an injury
- Every four seconds, a child is treated for an injury in an Emergency Department
The most common causes of child injuries are:
- Car accidents
In San Bernardino County in 2013, drowning was the number 1 cause of death for young children aged 1-4 years old.
Crucially, these injuries are all preventable. If everyone in society took appropriate precautions and fulfilled their responsibilities and duty of care, most of these injuries and deaths could be avoided. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing or able to take these precautions, and accidents due to other people’s negligence inevitably occur. That’s why The Dominguez Firm works diligently on behalf of injury victims to help them pick up the pieces in the aftermath of serious and debilitating accidents. If you have been injured in an accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence, whether a bite from a rogue and untrained dog or a collision with a reckless driver, The Dominguez Firm is ready to fight for your legal right to compensation.
