California car accidents: Bus crash sends 29 to hospital

There are multiple different transportation options in California. While some people may choose to drive themselves, those traveling in large groups or going to a tourist destination may opt for a chartered bus. Regardless of the chosen method of transportation, if it involves the roadways, car accidents are a potential risk. For example, 29 people were sent to the hospital following an accident involving a chartered bus.

Reports indicate that the incident happened at approximately 8 p.m. on a day in early December. Police say that the bus struck the center median while traveling south on a California highway. Afterward, it is said to have crashed on the right side of the road.

California wrongful death: 4 killed by alleged drunk driver

The potential consequences of drinking and driving are well-known. Despite this, there are those in California who decide to put their personal safety as well as the safety of others they may encounter at risk by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, officials claim that a recent fatal crash was caused by a drunk driver. In addition to criminal charges filed against the driver, surviving family members also have the option of filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

The crash happened on a day in late November. According to reports, a vehicle driven by a 47-year-old man struck an eastbound sedan, causing it to flip over a median into oncoming traffic. The driver of the sedan, a 50-year-old man, and his 14-year-old son were killed in the crash. Two other people, a 52-year-old man and his 12-year-old son, also lost their lives in the collision.

California motorcycle accident involving tanker proves fatal

When a motorcyclist becomes involved in an accident, there are few physical barriers to protect him or her, like those in place for occupants of more traditional motor vehicles. As a result, motorists in California must remain vigilant at all times. Unfortunately, a recent motorcycle accident involving a tanker recently proved fatal.

The incident happened before 6 a.m. on a morning in November. According to reports, a 37-year-old man was headed west on a motorcycle. Police indicate that a tanker truck attempted a left turn into the path of the motorcycle.

Jury awards $7.5 million in Walmart watermelon case

A man reaching for a watermelon at a Walmart left the store in an ambulance. An Alabama jury has awarded him $7.5 million for his broken hip and associated losses and suffering, plus punitive damages.

After big personal injury verdicts like this, we don’t always hear the rest of the story. Walmart will appeal. Sometimes these verdicts stand. Sometimes the award is reduced. Sometimes the judgment is reversed on appeal. It might be a long time before Henry Walker receives the money -- if he ever sees any of it.

Wrongful death claim could follow alleged DUI crash in California

Many people in California have routines. They get up in the morning, get ready for their day, drop their kids off at school and go to work. Unfortunately, the actions of others can irrevocably and permanently alter a family's routine. For example, police believe that a driver who was under the influence of alcohol caused an accident that could potentially result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The incident reportedly happened just before 8 a.m. on a day in mid-November. Police claim that a pickup truck driven by a 25-year-old male crossed the centerline, driving into oncoming traffic. As a result, the pickup allegedly drove head-on into a car driven by a 27-year-old woman. The woman died as a result of injuries suffered in the collision.

Car accidents: Police investigate serious collision

It is necessary for many people in California to utilize state roads as they go about their day-to-day lives. While most motorists go to great lengths to drive safely, car accidents often still occur due to the unavoidable actions of others. Unfortunately, two drivers were recently airlifted to the hospital after they were involved in a serious collision.

Many of the details regarding the collision are unclear. However, it occurred just after 3 p.m. on a day in early November. According to reports, one of the vehicles involved was struck by a second. The driver of the first reportedly suffered "major trauma" and was transported to the hospital by helicopter.

Are pet owners responsible when their “friendly” dog bites?

The vast majority of dog bites involve domestic dogs (someone’s pet). In fact, the victim is typically familiar with the animal and its owner.

What happens when a normally friendly pooch suddenly bites someone? Can a dog owner be held accountable if their pet has never attacked anyone before? What if the owner is a neighbor, friend or family member? A serious dog bite may lead to medical bills and lasting harm – putting you in the awkward position of initiating legal action.

Wrongful death: Arrest made following California crash

The dangers of drinking and driving are well-publicized. Unfortunately, many people in California and across the country fail to heed warnings about the potential harm they can cause when they get behind the wheel of a car after consuming alcohol. Now a family may be considering a wrongful death lawsuit after police say a woman was killed in an accident caused by a driver who was under the influence of alcohol.

The incident happened on a day in late October. According to reports, an 81-year-old woman was traveling north on a California interstate. Unfortunately, the California Highway Patrol claims that a 57-year-old woman was traveling the wrong way in the northbound lanes, causing a head-on collision.

Slip-and-fall accidents: Convenience store lawsuit proceeds

When a person in California is lawfully on a property, he or she should be able to reasonably expect that it is safe to be there. If a property owner or manager is aware -- or should be aware -- of certain conditions that could potentially result in harm, a duty exists to correct such conditions. Failure to do so could result in slip-and-fall accidents. After a woman in another state reportedly fell in the parking lot of a convenience store, she decided to take action against the store.

The incident that led to the woman's fall happened in June 2014. According to her, she slipped on parts of a sandwich that had been discarded in a parking lot. She filed a lawsuit against the store in 2016.

Wrongful death: Woman arrested following fatal California crash

Because of the potential consequences of drinking and driving, significant effort is made to educate the general public. Despite these efforts, however, people in California and across the country continue to put lives at risk by getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Unfortunately, police say that a recent crash further illustrates the dangers of such behavior. Although an arrest has been made, a wrongful death lawsuit could also follow.

The crash happened on an evening in October. According to reports, a vehicle driven by a 20-year-old female crossed into oncoming traffic. As a result, it collided with a car. The first vehicle continued on before striking a second vehicle. One witness claims that one of the vehicles was hauling chickens, and the accident scattered them across the highway.
