Recovering the compensation you deserve following an accident

When we pass by other motorists, we do not often think about where they might be going or what they might be doing inside their vehicles. However, when we are at a stop sign or signal, we often get a glimpse of what the drivers around us are doing. One might be singing along to the radio, another might be taking a sip of their coffee. While these are common acts for motorists in California and elsewhere to do, there are some common acts that are extremely dangerous to do behind the wheel of a vehicle. Texting while driving is considered very hazardous, and its dangers are equated to those associated with drunk driving.

Two-car fiery crash in Anaheim on Thanksgiving

This past week, the roadways were likely busier due to holiday travel. Residents in California and other states might have traveled a short distance or a long distance to spend time with their families during the Thanksgiving holiday. However, no mater the distance traveled, motorists could encounter risks and dangers, one of them being reckless or distracted drivers. When a driver is not paying attention or is driving unsafely, this could cause a serious or even fatal accident.

Children near school vulnerable of distracted driving accidents

We all expect drivers to be attentive and follow the rules of the road because such actions and conduct are required when operating a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, technology, conversations and other activities cause distractions for drivers. Failing to take notice of these distracting activities and ending them could result in a serious car accident.

Three-car accident leaves one dead, another seriously injured

Lawsuits involving multi-car, fatal accidents raise difficult questions about liability.

The accident happened in Riverside in the vicinity of La Sierra University.

We represent the families of pedestrians

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.

Riverside head-on collision leaves three seriously injured

Fatal car accident occurs when two vehicles run red light

Drivers throughout Southern California function under the unsaid understanding that certain basic protocols will be followed to keep everyone safe. Stopping at red lights, staying at the scene if there is an auto accident, adhering to all general traffic laws and more are expected from drivers. Unfortunately, there are incidents in which a car accident will occur and it will be due to a series of violations like those listed above. When this happens, there can be injuries and even fatalities. Those who are affected need to be aware of what steps to take after the car collision has taken place.

Distracted driving research shows surprising, dangerous results

In Riverside and across the nation, the risks of encountering a driver who is not paying strict attention to the road are increasing. This is due to the number of ways in which a driver can multitask. Texting and driving, checking apps, using social media and other distractions are prevalent. Studies try to make sense of the information and determine who is most at risk. Sometimes, these studies yield surprising and worrisome results. Such is the case with a study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

How should you react after a car accident?

A car accident is a traumatic event that can send you into a state of confusion and/or anger. When you are confused and/or angry, then you may do things that you wouldn't normally do when you are calm and prepared. As a result, angry drivers that have just been involved in an accident can make rash decisions such as fleeing the scene or getting so upset with other people involved in the crash that a confrontation occurs.
