California woman mourned following fatal motorcycle accident

A motor vehicle accident can happen at any time of the day and for a variety of different reasons. If involved in a collision, people are legally and morally expected to remain at the scene of the accident. However, law enforcement officials in California are searching for two people who allegedly fled the scene of a fatal motorcycle accident.

The incident reportedly involved a motorcycle that had three riders. Reports indicate that the bike was speeding on a ramp before it crashed during the late night hours of a day in late October. Two of the people reportedly ran from the scene. The third rider, a 38-year-old woman, was pronounced dead minutes after the collision.

Charges expected following fatal California car accident

Drivers in California are, for the most part, dedicated to protecting both their safety as well as the safety of others. As such, they choose to follow all traffic safety laws and abstain from drinking and driving. Unfortunately, evenn the most safety-conscious drivers cannot always respond in time to the negligent actions of others. In fact, a man in California is expected to face criminal charges following a recent fatal car accident.

Reports indicate that the accident happened at 5:30 a.m. on a day in October. Police say that the 43-year-old driver of a sedan allowed his vehicle to enter oncoming traffic where it struck a van head-on. Two people in the van died at the scene. A third occupant of the van was seriously injured.

How safe are electric scooters?

Southern California is infamous for its traffic congestion, and it only seems to be getting worse. Persistent street congestion and gridlock can make traveling by car a nightmare. You could take public transportation, but schedules are not always reliable. What are your options?

Enter the electric scooter. Over the past two years, electric scooters have become wildly popular in Southern California as a green alternative to driving. Because of the increase in popularity along with safety concerns, California has established state-wide laws regulating scooter use.

Who is liable for a slip-and-fall accident in California?

Most everyone has had a moment in their lives when their toe has caught on an uneven surface or they have slipped in a puddle of water on the floor, causing them to stumble. While this is likely a relatively minor incident in most cases, a fall in such a scenario can often cause relatively serious injuries. For many people in California who were injured in a slip-and-fall accident, or other fall-related injuries, the question becomes, who is liable?

In some cases, the owner of the property might be financially responsible. There are often several issues that will be examined to determine liability. Questions regarding whether the owner, or an employee of the owner, knew about -- or should have known about a potential hazard, such as pooling water -- must be addressed. Whether the owner or employee knew about the hazard and failed to take action or caused the action are factors that are also examined. 

Wrongful death: Teen killed in California car accident

Car accidents can happen for a variety of different reasons, such as lack of visibility or even a single moment of distraction. Because of this potential, drivers in California and across the country must take measures to ensure that they are vigilant at all times. Unfortunately, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol reduces a driver's ability to do so. In fact, a driver may now face a wrongful death claim after he allegedly caused a fatal accident while under the influence of alcohol. 

The accident happened during the evening hours of a day in mid-October. According to police, a 21-year-old male was driving drunk when he was unable to navigate a sharp left turn. As a result, his vehicle exited the road and struck a tree.

Arrest made in California car accident that killed child

Most people in California are aware that they could potentially be putting their lives at risk every time they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. While they can potentially reduce their chances of such an outcome by ensuring that they follow all traffic laws and safety recommendations, drivers sometimes find themselves unable to properly respond to the negligent acts of others they may encounter. In fact, police believe failure to obey traffic laws was the cause of a recent fatal car accident.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the incident happened on a day in early October. Reports indicate a 21-year-old male driver failed to stop at a stop sign. As a result, it is reported that his vehicle struck another vehicle in the intersection.

California to pay almost $2 million in wrongful death lawsuit

People -- regardless of any mistakes they may have made in their past -- should be able to feel safe in their settings, even if that setting is a state prison. Unfortunately, when law enforcement officials fail to take appropriate action to ensure inmate safety, lives could be lost. In fact, California recently settled a wrongful death lawsuit regarding a man who was discovered dead in his cell.

The alleged incident happened in Oct. 2017 and involved a 34-year-old inmate. He was reportedly questioned by correctional officers about a former cellmate's alleged involvement with dealing drugs. The questioning reportedly occurred in the presence of the man's cellmate at the time.

Pedaling into the classroom and out of harm’s way

Biking to school can benefit your child in many ways. Not only does it increase their physical activity and give them more outdoor time, but it may also encourage feelings of independence and trust.

However, children are more difficult for drivers to see — which can lead to a scary accident. On average, more than 250 thousand children are injured on a bicycle each year.

Fatal motorcycle accident in California under investigation

There are a variety of differences -- many of them obvious -- between a motorcycle and a traditional motor vehicle. For example, there are no physical barriers surrounding a motorcyclist to protect him or her in the event of an accident. Unfortunately, a recent motorcycle accident in California demonstrates the potential harm that motorcyclists face.

The accident happened during the late evening hours of a date in September. According to reports, a 31-year-old male motorcyclist was driving on Highway 1. Reports indicate that a sedan struck the motorcycle, causing it to veer into the center divider.
