Personal injury and wrongful death claims may follow 5-car crash

Drivers and their passengers on the busy California roads will always be vulnerable. Encounters with impaired drivers are always a significant risk. Many personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits that are filed in civil courts result from auto accidents caused by impaired drivers.

Personal injury: Tired wrong-way driver kills 1 in 8-car crash

Drivers on California roads must have valid driver's licenses, comply with the prevailing traffic regulations, and be sober and alert. Noncompliance with any of these regulations can lead to citations, and if accidents result, it could lead to personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits. This is probably what will be the consequence of a recent crash on a highway in Petaluma.

Personal injury: Premises liability suit follows death of golfer

Who would ever expect to suffer life-threatening injuries on a golf course? A recent premises liability lawsuit that was filed in California shows that it can happen. In fact, in this case, a golfer apparently died just more than a week after he suffered a personal injury on the defendant's golf course. The deceased golfer's surviving family members filed this suit against the golf course owner after they lost their loved one in March last year.

Personal injury: How safe are residents of gated communities?

Last November, a resident in a luxury, high-end apartment complex was found murdered outside his California residence. Although the identity of the killer remains a mystery, questions are being asked about the responsibility of the landlord toward tenants when it comes to security and their safety. Can he or she be held responsible for personal injury or wrongful death of a tenant?

Preventing personal injury will be priority at County Fair

For two weeks before the start of the Riverside County Fair, safety authorities tested the various rides to ensure the safety of visitors to the fair. A spokesperson for the company that operates the rides explained that several different tests are carried out to check for cracks or metal fatigue. Accident data held by the California Division of Safety and Health shows that 15 incidents causing personal injury occurred statewide from 2007 through 2016 at sites where this company operated rides.

Did faulty equipment cause personal injury at work?

Although the workers' compensation insurance program typically covers California workers who suffer on-the-job injuries, the benefits usually include medical expenses and a portion of lost wages. Sometimes the losses are more significant, and if a faulty piece of equipment played a role, there might be grounds for filing a personal injury claim in a civil court. Similar circumstances led to a lawsuit that was recently filed by an injured worker in another state.

Personal injury: 1 dead, 1 injured in single-vehicle crash

Experience and maturity play a significant role in the prevention of car crashes that could lead to serious injuries, or worse. The number of single-vehicle accidents that occur in California in which young adults were drivers underscores the dangers posed by inexperience. Lives can be turned upside down in an instant -- with innocent passengers suffering personal injury and sometimes losing their lives.

Personal injury: Alleged DUI accident on I-15 kills 2, injures 2

A 37-year-old California man was arrested after he allegedly caused a drunk driving accident on Interstate 15 on a recent Tuesday evening. The fiery accident occurred shortly before midnight, and the road remained closed for more than nine hours. That man is now facing multiple charges that might include vehicular manslaughter or murder along with driving while under the influence, and he may also have to face claims of personal injury and wrongful death.

Who will be liable for personal injury in driverless car crashes?

Much has been said, and will probably be said in the future, about driverless cars and the rules regulating them. After several previous adjustments, California's latest proposed regulations for these vehicles met the approval of safety advocates. However, these advocates were not happy with changes that the California Department of Motor Vehicles made to proposed regulations about liability for personal injury and other damage caused by a driverless car accident.

Personal injury and death follow suspected DUI crash

Drunk driving in the time leading up to the holidays is nothing unusual, and many lives are endangered by a few drivers who show little concern for the safety of other road users. Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits fill the California civil courts in the new year, and many of the cases result from accidents caused by drunk drivers. A 30-year-old Santa Maria man was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving recently after a fatal crash on Highway 154.
