Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

Car Accidents Archives

Daydreaming is the leading cause of fatal distractions

In what might come as a surprise to some residents of the Costa Mesa area, the leading cause of fatal car accidents that are related to distracted driving is not the misuse of mobile devices behind the wheel, although this certainly ranks high on the list of deadly distractions. Instead, a driver allowing his or her mind wander from the task at hand, via daydreaming or drifting off, is the leading cause of fatal accidents related to distracted driving. A recent report suggested that 61 percent of such accidents were attributed to daydreaming, whereas only 14 percent were attributed to cell phone use, like texting and driving.

Teenagers on Spring Break die in alleged drunk driving crash

Three teenagers died in a rear-end accident in the greater Los Angeles area. They were from out of state but in California enjoying Spring Break. In addition to the three who died, a fourth teen suffered serious injuries, including burn injuries to the teen's face.

Representation after a fatal drunk driving accident

Despite all of the advertising campaigns and law enforcement efforts, people in and around Costa Mesa, California, still make the terrible decision to drink or take drugs and then drive. Not surprisingly, these people have a tendency to cause accidents on California's roads.

Are the worst drivers in the country in California?

If you live in California, you are probably aware that the state has its share of drivers who make poor decisions behind the wheel. However, this problem could be worse than you thought. In fact, statistics indicate that California could have the worst drivers in the country.

Your neck injury is more than just a pain in the neck

A car accident can change your life in an instant, leaving you with serious injuries and debilitating pain in a matter of seconds. These injuries are more than just physically painful; they can also be quite expensive, as you have to deal with medical bills, lost time from work and other costs.

Walking should be good for your health, not hazardous

Summer is certainly here, and with warm weather all around, you might decide to park your vehicle and do a great deal of your travelling via sidewalk. Perhaps you enjoy walking, or even find it a preferable means of exercise, or both. There may be numerous benefits to this form of transportation, but there could also be a certain level of risk involved.

Saying too much can jeopardize your insurance claim

The disorder and confusion following a motor vehicle accident can be overwhelming. Accident scenes can be noisy and frightening, with sirens, emergency vehicles and rescuers racing around. There may be crowds of onlookers and people asking you questions. If you have suffered an injury, the pain may cause even greater confusion.
