A truck driver who struck a vehicle along the side of the road is now facing criminal vehicular manslaughter charges. The accident happened in a town not far away from the Riverside area.
Southern California residents may not have to worry about snow and ice on the roads, but that does not mean drivers are free of seasonal hazards. Summer has its own driving risks as well. Being aware of them can help you to avoid an accident this summer.
When people in Riverside go to the doctor, they expect that they will be given a correct and prompt diagnosis of any medical problems and also get appropriate care. After all, they pay big bucks for medical care either directly or in the form wage withholdings for premium. Moreover, there are always outstanding medical bills even after health insurance kicks in.
Unlike other personal injury cases, which are usually "negligence" cases, personal injury cases involving defective products are decided under what is called a strict liability standard. Many decades ago, California was actually a pioneer state in establishing this legal standard for product liability cases.
A recent post on this blog described a tragic situation in which a Riverside, California, woman died after a vehicle hit her as she was trying to cross the street. Although this was a obviously a worst case scenario for the pedestrian, many other Californians, especially those in the greater Los Angeles area, suffer serious injuries when all they were doing is walking along a sidewalk or trying to cross a busy street.
