Suspected drunk driver leads police on chase, injures 5 in crash

Car accidents are a problem throughout the country, including California. This was shown in a recent incident, whereby police are continuing to investigate a chase and crash, which authorities are blaming on drunk driving. The car crash, which happened after county law enforcement officials pursued a driver, involved two vehicles and caused damage to a residential property near the road.

Minimum insurance requirements for truckers

All California drivers are supposed to carry at least a small amount of insurance, called automobile liability insurance, which will help them pay compensation in the event they cause an accident through their own carelessness. Moreover, because truck accidents are more likely to result in serious injuries, truckers who drive in the Los Angeles area are, generally speaking, required under either state or federal law to carry additional liability insurance.

How does underinsured motorist coverage work?

This blog has spoken previously about how a negligent driver who causes a car accident will likely have to pay compensation to other people whom he or she injured. One problem that Alhambra and other residents of the greater Los Angeles area may have, though, is that the negligent driver may not be able to pay just because he or she does not have the money or assets to do so.

Who can bring a wrongful death claim?

When the negligence of another person leaves a Los Angeles resident dead, many people, sometimes hundreds, are affected negatively. The deceased will have lots of relatives, friends and other colleagues who will probably miss the person profoundly, and many of them may have even counted on the person for some sort of support.
