Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

Car Accidents Archives

Proving negligence and understanding accepted standard of care

After a serious motor vehicle accident, you may be unsure of your legal options and how you will ever be able to rebuild your life. You may even think that you could have grounds for a civil claim, but it may be difficult to determine if you should move forward with this legal action. Proving that you are the victim of the negligent or harmful actions of another person is not an easy process, but it is possible.

Technology can help record the impact of car accident injuries

If we stop and think about how the rapid expanse of technology has impacted all of our lives, the results are confounding. With the ability of cell phones, websites and other technology impacting our daily lives, there are positives and negatives to the quick change in our society. Technology has no doubt been helpful to many, and it can be helpful for those who have fallen victim to car accident injury.

Key points to understand about wrongful death claims in California

No one wants to receive that call, the one telling you that someone close to you has been in a fatal accident. Although the sheer emotional grief can be overwhelming enough on its own, if someone else is responsible for your loved one's death, you might find the news even more difficult to accept.

Injured pedestrian victim of alleged intoxicated hit-and-run

A good Samaritan who witnessed a local Costa Mesa crash were able to help track down a suspected hit-and-run driver last week. If not for this proactive witness, it is not known if the person who have ever been apprehended for their involvement in a crash involving a pedestrian. According to police, the pedestrian was found lying in the street due to his injuries when he was struck by a vehicle. The crash occurred in the middle of the night, right after bar close.

Proving negligence, assessing damages: Things to know after a crash

It's an understatement to say it can be challenging at times to navigate busy California roadways. Many areas are traffic-laden every day and not every driver is alert and acting with caution behind the wheel. In fact, some are downright reckless. Accidents caused by distracted drivers are on the rise throughout the nation. A major culprit leading to such incidents is texting while driving.

Fatal auto accident results in more than loss of loved one

Receiving news or getting a phone call that your loved one has been involved in a serious car accident, and he or she didn't make it, is one of the most devastating events that can occur in a person's life. Lots of thoughts run through a person's head during this difficult and traumatic time. Most focus of the loss of the important person in their life. However, there is another type of loss many people suffer after suddenly losing a loved one in a fatal car accident.

Know your options for compensation after a California rideshare accident

Rideshare services, such as Uber and Lyft, are extremely popular in California right now. They are easy to access and can get you anywhere you want to go around town. You don't have to stress about parking, deal with traffic anxiety or even worry about what types of beverages you consume while out, and ridshare services are not likely to go away any time soon.

How is cause or fault determined for auto accident injuries?

After suffering the trauma of a car accident, many may just want to forget that this incident ever happened. This is understandable, as one should focus on nursing oneself or a loved one back to health. While personal wellness is a great focus to have, medical expenses are not cheap and the combined lost wages can really do a number on a family's finances.

Do you know what type of distracted driving caused your accident?

If you suffered injuries in an accident caused by a distracted driver, you may assume that a cellphone was involved in some capacity. In reality, there are many different types of distraction, and they all pose a deadly threat to every other driver and passenger on California roads.
