Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

Posts tagged "negligence"

Orange County crash kills 23-year-old woman

California is an expansive state; getting from one place to another often requires traveling on a highway. Even commuting around Orange County can mean a highway ride in a motor vehicle. Because it is so common for people in the area to drive dozens of miles at a time, it can be easy to forget just how dangerous it is to drive at higher speeds on a highway.

Taking financial responsibility is the law in California

Every day, Orange County residents get in their cars and SUVs and drive to work or to wherever it is they need to go at any given time. People rely on their automobiles, to the point where they are more of a necessity than a luxury. Despite the significant role that automobiles play in many people's lives, it is easy to forget about the responsibilities that go along with owning and driving a car.

The dangers of insufficient warnings on inexpensive foreign toys

When the safety of their young children is at issue, most parents in Orange County take a keen interest. Accordingly, a recent report about dangerous toys will likely concern these parents that have young kids.

Orange County auto accident kills one, injures another

Anytime that a person gets behind the wheel of an automobile after consuming alcohol they could be risking lives. Alcohol affects the mind and body in a number of different ways, none of which are beneficial when it comes to operating a motor vehicle. Most people know, for example, that alcohol typically slows a person's reflexes and reaction time. This means that a driver who is under the influence of alcohol may not be able to stop or maneuver their vehicle to avoid hitting other vehicles.

Motor vehicle accidents an annual threat this time of year

The holidays are here and the New Year is right around the corner. No matter their religion or socioeconomic background, most people across the country celebrate this time of year in one way or another. For some Californians, this means taking a breather from their ordinary work routine and spending time with family and friends.

Auto accident victims can turn to us when they need help

In Orange County and in other communities all throughout California, car accidents are an everyday occurrence. Many of these accidents amount to nothing more than fender- benders that result in only minor property damage and no injuries. That being said, far too many accidents do cause serious injuries to people involved in a collision. Although auto safety has increased dramatically over the years, motor vehicle accidents are still a major contributor to injuries and deaths throughout the country.

Potentially deadly product recalled from California stores

Many people in the Orange County area have been following the ongoing news about the Ebola cases that have reached the United States. Although it is natural to be fearful of such a deadly disease, the odds of a widespread outbreak in this country are extremely small. Californians face greater risks from countless sources other than a virus that is primarily confined to an entirely different continent. Even common food items on local store shelves can become a source of sickness, or even death in extreme cases.

Ways for accident victims to show the other party's negligence

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.

Early morning car accident claims one life, injures six others

Safety should be the highest priority for anyone who gets behind the wheel of any kind of vehicle. Most Orange County residents are so accustomed to driving from place to place that it can be easy to forget about the dangers on the roadways. However, serious auto accidents can unfold in the blink of an eye, which is why people must always concentrate on the road and others around them when they are driving.

Good Samaritan may have been factor in fatal Irvine accident

An auto accident usually happens due to recklessness or negligence, and those who are injured or killed are often innocent bystanders who also happen to be traveling the same road. There are times, however, when people with good intentions put themselves and others in harm's way.
