Fines against nursing homes have notably decreased

A change in how U.S. nursing homes are regulated has lowered the amount of fines they pay for violations. Overall, the government has cut fines by about 40 percent.

The administration says the new system is fairer to the nursing home industry. Critics say that lower fines mean less incentive to comply with patient safety laws. That lax policy could put nursing home residents at acute risk for injury, illness, abuse or neglect.

California wrongful death: DUI suspected in fatal crash

Safe drivers remain aware of their surroundings and prepared to respond to changing conditions or unexpected hazards at all times. Unfortunately, there are some accidents that even the safest of drivers find themselves unable to avoid. In fact, a man was recently arrested following a crash in California that could ultimately result in wrongful death claims.

The incident reportedly happened during the early morning hours of a day in March. According to reports, the two vehicles involved in the crash were headed north on a California interstate. Though many details are unclear, the California Highway Patrol reports that a driver of a pickup truck struck the rear of a vehicle with an elderly driver.

Motorcycle accident involving a pig investigated in California

All motorists must be aware of their surroundings and prepared to respond to a change in conditions at all times. Unfortunately, even the safest, most vigilant drivers sometimes encounter conditions that may be difficult to respond to in a timely manner. For example, police in California report that a man recently died in a motorcycle accident after striking a pig that was in the road.

The incident reportedly occurred during the late evening hours of a day in early March. A 57-year-old motorcyclist was headed east on a California road when he struck a pig that was in the roadway. He was ejected from the motorcycle.

Slip-and-fall accident results in civil lawsuit

Most businesses in California and across the country want to attract customers to their premises. In exchange, however, patrons expect that the premises are maintained to prevent their injury. Unfortunately, a woman in another state claims that she was injured as a result of a slip-and-fall accident at a Walmart that occurred as a result of the store's negligence.

The incident reportedly happened in April 2017. A representative for the woman claims that at the time of the accident, the woman was recovering from knee surgery that she underwent the month before. Unfortunately, while she was walking in the detergent aisle, she claims she slipped and fell in a substance described as "wet and slick."

Is there a downside to so much new car technology?

New cars seem to have limitless safety features meant to make your trip more secure. Automakers tout features that can help you steer, change lanes and even parallel park.

Unfortunately, people are finding these features can be more intrusive than helpful. Here are some of the ways safety technology can hinder your driving ability:

California wrongful death: 8-year-old killed in crash

Parents often go to great lengths to ensure that their children are safe. Despite their efforts, however, they cannot always protect them from all hazards, such as drivers who choose to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, California police believe that DUI may have played a role in a recent crash that could ultimately result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

The incident happened around 10 p.m. on a day in late February. According to reports, the 35-year-old driver of a vehicle failed to stop at a stop sign as required. The vehicle, according to police, was traveling at around 100 mph at the time.

2 suffer serious injuries in California car accident

Drivers in California and across the country must be aware of the conditions around them and make appropriate alterations to their driving, such as when on a connector ramp. A lack of awareness could ultimately have serious consequences. Police are still investigating a car accident in which two people were recently seriously injured in California.

The incident happened just before 5:30 a.m. on a day in mid-February. Police say that a 33-year-old man was driving a sedan on a California interstate when he entered the connector ramp for another interstate. Unfortunately, he reportedly lost control of the vehicle, causing it to overturn. It is unclear what caused him to lose control. The vehicle came to a stop in the northbound lanes of I-15.

California car accidents: At least 9 injured in drug-related cras

Most pedestrians in California feel safe while walking on sidewalks. In fact, car accidents involving pedestrians on sidewalks are relatively infrequent. Unfortunately, a recent crash will likely have people questioning their overall safety after at least nine people were injured.

The incident happened during the early morning hours of a day in February. According to reports, several people were on the sidewalk in a popular area with bars and restaurants just prior to closing time. Unfortunately, police say that a 22-year-old man drove his pickup truck over a curb, striking several people.

Wrongful death: California pedestrian killed in hit-and-run

No family is prepared for the unexpected death of a loved one. Unfortunately, such a loss may seem even more difficult to bear when it comes with a large number of unanswered questions. For example, a family in California is now looking for the driver said to be responsible for the wrongful death of a family member.

The incident happened one evening on a day in January. According to reports, the 21-year-old victim was crossing a California street with her older sister. Police report that the pair was in a crosswalk at the time.

California Highway Patrol still investigating fatal accident

Many drivers in California take every precaution to ensure their personal safety as well as the safety of their passengers. However, there is often little a driver can do at a traffic light with a vehicle rapidly approaching from behind. Unfortunately, the California Highway Patrol claims that a recent fatal accident involved slow traffic due to a recently changed traffic light.

The incident happened one evening on a day in January. According to reports, traffic was moving slowly at an intersection after a traffic light changed to green. Unfortunately, reports indicate that a man driving a pickup truck at 45 mph slammed into the back of a vehicle. Two women in that vehicle, ages 48 and 25, died as a result of impact injuries. A third occupant, a man, suffered major injuries.
