Fatal Los Angeles motorcycle accident claims life of rider

The legal process and the options it affords protect motorcycle accident victims and their families. While no one expects to get involved in a motorcycle accident, such an event could result in a serious and tragic aftermath. Therefore, it is imperative to understand what recourses are available to victims and their loved ones.

Truck driver health linked to accidents and decreased safety

Truck accidents can cause serious harm to victims and their families. Skill, experience and other factors contribute to truck driver safety. According to a recent study, minor health issues can lead to an increased chance of truck accidents when truck drivers have three or more even minor medical issues. Truck drivers who have three or more medical issues double to quadruple their risk of being in a truck accident when compared to healthier drivers.

Brain injury victims have legal options to consider

A serious traumatic brain injury may not be immediately noticeable following a motor vehicle accident or other injury. Traumatic brain injuries can be open or closed head injuries, and can be caused by car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. Brain injuries can range from mild to severe. Prompt attention and care for a brain injury can be critical to a successful recovery.

Surviving children bring wrongful death claim in California

When a loved one has been killed in an accident, surviving family members may be left to cope with emotional losses and unexpected financial challenges. Recently in California, a group of siblings brought a wrongful death lawsuit, alleging that a hospital and ambulance service negligently caused the death of their mother.

Witnesses prevent hit-and-run driver from fleeing accident scene

One of the most frustrating and tragic kinds of traffic accidents in California occurs when the driver who appears to be at fault is able to successfully flee the scene. Police may have difficulty finding and arresting the driver, and the victims of the accident may have difficulty recovering damages for injuries suffered in the accident. In a heartening variation on this theme, witnesses to a recent truck and motorcycle accident in Hawthorne were partly successful in preventing the driver who caused the collision from successfully running away.
