Death from defective products is a problem that plagues many different types of industries in the United States. Many Orange County residents are probably familiar with some of the more recent product recalls involving a wide range of goods, including automobiles, prescription medications and even toys. Likewise, most people know that if they suffer an injury from an unsafe product, they may have a legal claim against the manufacturer or some other party.
Few people in Orange County enjoy driving on the highway next to or behind tractor trailers. Most of the time, these big rig trucks are only a minor inconvenience. Occasionally, however, they cause catastrophic accidents.
Bike riders are a common sight all throughout Orange County. Whether a biker is riding through a quiet neighborhood, on any of Orange County's many bike trails or on a road with motor vehicles, bikers should always do everything that they can to ride safely. People driving their cars, trucks and SUVs must also do their part to ensure the safety of bicyclists on the roadways.
Car accidents are an all too common occurrence in Orange County, and all throughout the country. While many crashes are not the result of someone's intentional act, that does not mean that they are unavoidable. To the contrary, driver negligence is the cause of many motor vehicle accidents. Accordingly, accident victims who seek monetary compensation should understand how to prove that another party was at fault.
