Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

December 2017 Archives

Preventing vape pen explosions and where victims can seek support

A recent trend in the use of electronic cigarettes and vape pens has ignited a debate about their safety. Some of these products may very well be safe, but others, imported from overseas manufacturers who adhere to dubious safety standards, are less so. Vape pen explosion are becoming more prevalent; however, when armed with a little knowledge, you can significantly increase the odds of keeping yourself out of harm's way.

Products liability: Some toys to think twice about buying

Every year, a group dedicated to protecting children from dangerous toys dubs a few toys as worst toys of the year. For 2017, 10 toys received this dubious honor. These toys were of a wide variety of types, but there were a couple of common themes that ran through this year's list.

When might a truck driver cause a truck accident?

Orange County residents probably know intuitively that truck accidents are serious and potentially deadly affairs. Whether an accident involving a tractor-trailer is caused by speeding, an overloaded truck or some other reason, the end result is almost always significant property damage and, in many cases, serious injuries. This is because trucks are so much bigger than the other cars with which they share the road.

Overly sleepy drivers can be extremely dangerous drivers

You, like many others in California, have probably gotten behind the wheel of your vehicle while a little tired. It's normal to be sleepy from time-to-time, but there are situations in which a person is too tired to operate a motor vehicle safely. In these cases, an exhausted driver can be an extremely dangerous driver.

Common bicycle versus car accident scenarios

Many people in Costa Mesa and the rest of Orange County love to ride their bicycles, even in the cooler winter months. What bike riders should understand, though, is that there are many hazards one faces when riding a bike, and one of the most serious ones is the chance that another car will hit the cyclist.

How safe is vaping?

You may have started vaping to get the satisfaction of smoking tobacco cigarettes without the health risks. On the other hand, you may be like many who never smoked cigarettes but tried vaping and enjoyed it. Now you and nearly three million people use E-cigarettes, and the number is growing.
