Wrongful death legal protections help family members

The wrongful death of a loved one can be an overwhelmingly devastating experience for surviving family members. While dealing with the emotional devastation of unexpectedly losing a loved one, surviving family members may also be left facing unexpected financial challenges, including the potential loss of income and unexpected costs such as medical expenses, funeral expenses and others.

Los Angeles-area truck accident results in injuries and death

Motorists frequently share the roads with large trucks. While this is the norm in society today, drivers still have their concerns regarding their safety and the risks these massive vehicles could pose. Truck accidents result in extensive harm to victims, which is why legal options are available to help them.

Legal protections are available for motorcycle accident victims

Motorcycle riders can be in a uniquely vulnerable position on the roadway. Additionally, they can be especially exposed to negligent and careless drivers. Motorcycle riders can be susceptible to inattentive drivers who fail to observe them, and it is important to keep in mind that motorcycles do not enjoy the same protections passenger vehicles afford. Unfortunately, statistics illustrate how dangerous the roadways can be for motorcycle riders.

Truck regulations seek to protect the public from truck accidents

To help prevent deaths and serious injuries related to commercial vehicle accidents, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration or FMCSA was established within the Department of Transportation. Commercial vehicles are heavier and present an increased risk of danger, death and injuries on the roadways when truck accidents occur. Special regulations are associated with commercial vehicles to help keep the public safe.
