For most people in California, Memorial Day weekend is a time of family and gratitude for those who gave their life for their country. While people honor the holiday in different ways, at least one family will now remember the weekend for a different reason -- the death of a loved one in a traffic accident. In addition to the fatality, several other people were injured.
Drivers in California and across the country often face multiple hazards as they drive. Even what appears to be a day with high visibility and low traffic can ultimately turn tragic. As a result, all drivers must remain vigilant at all times to ensure that their actions do not cause harm to others. Unfortunately, a recent motorcycle accident has resulted in a man's death.
The CDC reports that falls among Americans 65 and older have risen sharply over the last decade. The elderly are not only more prone to falling, but more likely to suffer serious injury when they do.
Many drivers in California are concerned about safety. As such, they strive to obey all traffic laws and regulations. Unfortunately, even the safest drivers are sometimes unable to avoid car accidents caused by the negligence of others. In fact, one person has lost his life and two others were seriously injured in a recent head-on collision.
There are many safe motorcyclists on California roadways. Some may even go to extreme measures to maintain their safety. Unfortunately, if a collision occurs, there are few physical barriers to protect motorcyclists from an impact with a vehicle or the road. In fact, a man in California is in critical condition after he was involved in a recent motorcycle accident.
Most parents do everything in their power to keep their children safe. They buy the highest rated car seats and follow all traffic laws when their children are in the car with them. Unfortunately, there is often little some parents can do to avoid the negligent acts of the drivers that they may encounter while on California roadways. Unfortunately, the surviving members of one family may be considering their legal options, including filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
