Car accident injuries: what is whiplash and how is it treated?

Car accidents can be jarring -- physically and mentally. One common injury suffered in a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash is especially prevalent in auto accidents in which one vehicle strikes another from behind. However, although it is a common injury and many residents of Los Angeles may have known someone who has suffered from it, it is still important to have an understanding of what whiplash is and how it is treated.

Collision with fire truck kills man on way to rehearsal dinner

Traffic accidents always seem random and capricious, but special circumstances can make such tragedies even more painful for the families and friends of victims. One such auto accident occurred in Agoura Hills involving a private vehicle and a truck driven by firefighters working for the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Reconstructing motorcycle accidents

Most, if not all, media reports of automobile and motorcycle accidents state that the cause of the accident is "under investigation." Rarely do media sources follow-up their report of the accident with a story about the probable causes, and police reports do not always contain a detailed analysis of vehicle speeds, crash-resistance and other factors that can lead to an explanation of why the accident happened. Many such cases require the services of an engineer or similarly trained person who specializes in reconstructing the sequence of events that led to the accident.
