Alleged DUI driver crashes into Uber car causing personal injury

The holiday season in Southern California and across the nation can place people at risk for being victims of a drunk driving accident. This is especially true after people are returning home from various holiday events and celebrations. Drunk driving accidents can result in injuries and fatalities. In some cases, even if the victims were not driving, but instead were using public transportation or ride-sharing, they could still be injured or killed in a crash caused by a driver who was under the influence. People who are confronted with these problems should know what steps to take to pursue compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.

California truck ports violating rules can cause truck accidents

Trucks are a constant on the roads on Southern California and across the nation. While most truck drivers will adhere to the law to maintain safety and avoid motor vehicle accidents, there are various factors that can lead to a crash. One that is garnering attention is the number of drivers who are working too many hours. Regardless of how and why a crash occurs, the aftereffects can be significant and cause many problems for those involved. A personal lawsuit is often the only strategy to recover a sufficient amount to adequately compensate the victims.

California drivers ranked worst in the country

California is famous for its difficult traffic, but dangers that go beyond seeing a sea of red brake lights are a constantly lurking issue for those who drive in the state. Studies are useful to determine exactly how dangerous it is to drive in California and across the nation. While steps are being taken to ensure and improve safety, there are issues that arise and should be factored in when examining the driving circumstances. A recent study shows that California is viewed as having the worst drivers in the U.S.

Technology advances viewed as a rising cause of car accidents

In Long Beach, throughout California and across the nation, it is growing more common to see drivers whose eyes are everywhere but the road. They are looking down, clearly adjusting dials and pushing buttons. Most of these incidents are linked to smartphone and device use, but other distractions are available to drivers. These are marketed as devices to make life easier with apps for directions and other information built into the car. People who are injured or lose a loved one to a wrongful death incident in a car crash should be aware of the possibility that it was due to a distracted driver.

Danger of bicycle-car accidents shown after child's death

Many people in Long Beach take advantage of the warm weather in Southern California to get back and forth via bicycle. This is especially true with youngsters. When out on the road, drivers must be aware of bicyclists and give them room to ride. They must also adhere to traffic laws and yield. Unfortunately, when bicycles and vehicles are sharing the road, there is always a chance for car accidents. When a bicyclist or a pedestrian in injured or killed in an accident with a car, it is crucial to understand the steps to take in filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Taking action following a serious accident

At times, we take our good health for granted. We live our lives thinking that nothing can harm us and horrible events will not happen. However, tragedy can strike at any moment, and we often find ourselves unprepared to deal with the aftermath. A serious accident can essentially turn your life upside-down. Not only are you dealing with the pain and suffering from the incident, but you are also faced with damaged personal property, accumulated medical bills and the inability to work.

Pedestrian stuck and killed crossing the street in Long Beach

California residents are used to traveling by foot. This is true if they are in the city, by the beach or in a shopping district. Whether a person is a pedestrian for several miles or only a block, the unfortunate reality is that pedestrians face many risks. When individuals need to cross the street, are in a parking lot or are walking on the side of the road, they are at a greater risk of being hit by a motorist. Thus, drivers are expected to use caution when traveling in areas where pedestrians frequent. Failure to do so is negligent and could be the cause of a serious and even fatal pedestrian accident.

What types of injuries are suffered in a dog attack?

Owning a dog is very common in California and other state across the nation. A dog is considered a companion pet, often treated like a member of the family. Despite the notion that dogs are domesticated, friendly and obedient, the fact of the matter is that dogs are still animals with animal instincts. Even a dog owner who has raised his or her dog since it was a pup may not fully understand the tendencies of their adult dog. Therefore, even if a dog has been shown any aggression before, a dog could suddenly lash out, causing injuries to strangers or visitors.

Pedestrian seriously hurt in hit-and-run in Long Beach

Motorists have many obligations. Even if operating a motor vehicle appears to be a simple and routine task, it is an activity that requires much attention and care. Drivers are obligated to uphold a duty of care. The size and weight of a motor vehicle could deem it a weapon in certain situations, causing serious and even fatal injuries in the event of a crash. Much like a driver is expected to follow the rules of the road while operating a motor vehicle, they are also expected to follow the laws in the event of a car accident. Failure to do so is deemed a hit-and-run, which could result in criminal and civil penalties for a driver.
