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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
