There are a variety of different factors that could ultimately have a role in an accident. In fact, the combination of a negligent driver and unsafe conditions can easily result in dire consequences. For example, a motorcyclist in California recently lost his life in a motorcycle crash.
California is one of the most progressive states in the U.S. when it comes to taking a legal stand against distracted driving. We were one of the first states to pass laws making it illegal to do certain things while driving, such handling a cellphone to talk or text, eating, combing your hair or putting on makeup. A 2017 law went even further, banning drivers from holding cellphones at all.
When a person in California or other area of the country suffers an injury, he or she often has difficulty paying the resulting medical bills. Between this financial hardship and the desire to force a negligent person or business to take action to prevent future harm to someone else, many victims often feel as if they have no option but to turn to litigation. A woman in another state who claims she was the victim of a slip-and-fall accident has recently opted to take such action.
Many people enjoy traveling the open roads on motorcycles. However, just like when operating any vehicle, it takes control and concentration to ensure safe travels. Unfortunately, if a person consumes alcohol before driving, the chances of a motorcycle accident taking place increase.
There are many drivers on California roadways who make attempts to ensure that their actions do not endanger themselves and those around them. Unfortunately, even safe drivers often find themselves unable to effectively respond when others do not take similar precautions. In fact, a woman was recently arrested after police claim she caused a fatal accident.
When eating at one's favorite restaurant, one doesn't expect to be the victim of a car crash. However, this is exactly what happened to patrons of a Carl's Jr. establishment in Huntington Park, California, recently. As with other car accidents caused by driver negligence, those injured may elect to pursue personal injury claims against the driver responsible if negligence can be established.
