Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

November 2016 Archives

Defective equipment can lead to motorcycle accidents

Drivers in Orange County may be aware of the possibility of a safety defect with their automobiles. When the auto manufacturer learns of this kind of problem, federal regulations require that it takes steps to remedy the problem. In some cases, this may mean issuing a safety recall of the vehicle. For example, people in Costa Mesa may be familiar with the ongoing recall involving vehicles that have Takata airbags. But cars and SUVs are not the only vehicles that can be subject to recalls.

Distracted driving statistics should raise concern

Mobile devices have become an integral part of many people's lives in California and elsewhere. That does not mean, however, that using them does not pose some risk, especially when a person uses them while driving. In recent years, incidents and accidents associated with distracted driving have increased substantially, and many state and federal agencies have published some grim statistics regarding cell phone use behind the wheel.

Woman dies in alleged fatal drunk driving accident

When on California roadways, not even the safest drivers are immune from encountering a drunk driver and its accompanying consequences. With any motor vehicle accident, including those involving a drunk driver, there is the potential for serious injuries and fatalities. Along with that are the inevitable challenges surviving family members have to confront after the loss of a loved one. Because of this, after a fatal car accident it is important to have advice from an attorney to determine what steps need to be taken next in hopes of recovering damages suffered.

What are the rules of the road for California bicyclists?

Bicyclists are common throughout Orange County, and in some areas, they share the roads with motor vehicles. When a bike rider is on a roadway, drivers in cars and trucks must take reasonable precautions to keep the bicyclist safe. This means not only following all traffic control devices, but also slowing down or yielding to the rider in certain situations. But what about the bicyclists, what are the rules of the road for them in California?

Motor vehicle accident in Orange County injures six people

People should always make safety a top priority when they get in the driver's seat of an automobile. Part of driving safely involves adhering to all traffic laws, including those related to traffic control devices. However, safe driving also requires people to operate their vehicles at appropriate speeds for the particular road conditions. This may mean slowing down to a speed that is below the limit under certain circumstances.
