Wrongful death: Woman killed in California crash

Most people are aware of the potential harm they could face when driving on the roadways in this country. However, drivers in California likely feel relatively safe while stopped, waiting to make a left turn in a designated lane. Unfortunately, a woman reportedly lost her life in an accident that could ultimately result in a wrongful death claim.

The incident that resulted in the fatality happened on a day in late December. Reports indicate that the victim, a 72-year-old woman, was driving a sports utility vehicle. She was reportedly in a left turn pocket, waiting to make a turn when her vehicle was struck in the rear by a SUV.

Widow files lawsuit after fatal slip-and-fall accident

Some people may easily dismiss the potential harm a certain type of accident can cause. For example, it is often easy to overlook the sometimes major injuries that a person in California and across the country can suffer in a slip-and-fall accident. Unfortunately, a business's failure to maintain its property can have significant ramifications.

In fact, a woman in another state recently filed a lawsuit against Walmart. She claims that the business's negligence ultimately led to her husband's death. According to court papers, a 67-year-old man parked his vehicle at Walmart's service center in May. She claims that as he stepped out of his vehicle, he tripped over a defect in the concrete on the floor, causing him to fall.

California wrongful death: 2 killed in alcohol-related crash

The dangers of drinking and driving are well-known. Despite the publicity advertising the potential dangers that intoxicated drivers create for themselves and others around them, drivers in California and across the country still make the decision to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, police believe that alcohol may have been a factor in a recent fatal accident that could lead to wrongful death claims.

The fatal incident happened just before 1 a.m. on a day in early January. According to reports, a 30-year-old man was driving on a California freeway when he rear-ended another vehicle. The first car continued on, striking a pickup truck in the rear. The truck turned on its side and skidded across all lanes of traffic, ultimately striking another vehicle and a guardrail before coming to a rest.

California woman killed in motorcycle accident

There are certain risks inherent with driving any type of motor vehicle. However, some might argue that motorcyclists could potentially face additional harm due to their relative lack of physical barriers to protect riders. As such, motorcyclists may need to be especially vigilant about following certain safety precautions. Unfortunately, it appears that speed may have been a factor in a recent motorcycle accident that resulted in a woman's death in California.

The incident happened one evening on a day in mid-December. Reports indicate that the 28-year-old woman was riding as a passenger on a motorcycle driven by a 40-year-old man. The motorcycle was reportedly traveling over 100 mph prior to the accident.

Whiplash: One of the most serious car accident injuries

When you think of the most serious injuries people sustain in a car accident, you likely imagine television shows that depict an emergency room at a hospital filled with people on stretchers and bleeding from various lacerations. However, one of the most serious and frequent injuries that result from a car accident is whiplash.

Whiplash occurs when a person’s head suddenly jerks forward and backward, similar to the whip of a rope. The most common cause of whiplash is a rear end accident, according to Mayo Clinic. This type of injury can cause serious damage to the muscles and ligaments in the neck when they extend farther and at a faster pace than normal.

Legal help following a California slip-and-fall accident

Many people in California may not realize how much of their overall physical well-being depends on the actions of others. Whenever inside a business or public location, we depend upon responsible parties to properly maintain the property to ensure our safety. Unfortunately, when negligence happens regarding the property of malls, grocery stores and city streets, among many other places, victims can be left suffering due to significant injuries that occurred in a slip-and-fall accident.

Unfortunately, a fall can result in multiple injuries, such as a fractured bone, spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury. Often, these injuries required hospitalization, including surgery. Some victims may suffer from their injuries for the rest of their lives.

Man arrested after fatal accident in California

During this time of year, many people in California and across the country are looking forward to or participating in holiday traditions with their families. While this tends to be a time of year devoted to spending time together, one family is instead planning a funeral after a loved one was the victim of a fatal accident. Another driver has since been arrested in connection to the accident that resulted in the fatality.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. on a day in early December. According to reports, a 25-year-old male was driving a pickup truck on a California roadway. Unfortunately, his truck is said to have slammed into the rear of a compact car, pushing it into the rear of a second vehicle.

Walmart settles slip-and-fall lawsuit

Businesses in California and across the country want customers to enter their stores to make purchases. However, customers have a reasonable expectation that the property will be maintained in such a way as to prevent harm to them on the premises. When negligence occurs, those who suffer harm as a result may choose to file a premises liability lawsuit, such as one woman in another state chose to do following a slip-and-fall accident.

The incident that led to the lawsuit occurred in a Walmart store. The plaintiff in the case claims that she was shopping in the store when she slipped on a liquid. Unfortunately, she reportedly fell and injured her shoulder "badly."

Man severely injured in California motorcycle accident

It is the responsibility of all drivers to be fully aware of their surroundings at all times, even when stopped at a traffic light. Failure to do so can often lead to a collision that may have serious ramifications for those involved. In fact, the California Highway Patrol reports that a motorcycle accident has left a man seriously injured.

The accident happened on a Saturday evening in late November. According to reports, both the 66-year-old male motorcyclist and a 25-year-old male driving a sports car were stopped at traffic light at an intersection. The motorcyclist was attempting to drive straight through the intersection while the driver of the sports car was in a left turn lane.

A scary number of people use shopping apps while driving

In 2018, a record number of people did their Black Friday shopping online. That should mean less traffic at the malls and fewer accidents, right?

But a new survey shows that an alarming number of online shoppers are doing it while driving! They can’t resist “hot deals” that pop up on their smartphone.
