Personal injury claims for hope of a better future

A recent post on our blog discussed the discovery process and the importance it can have when a car accident victim chooses to take legal action against the party who caused him or her harm. In the days, months, and years following a car accident, it can be easy to lose focus of one's legal options as an individual turns to his or her recovery, return to work, and coping with what could be a life-altering injury. Yet, these victims need to make sure that they are doing everything they can to protect their legal rights. After all, succeeding on a personal injury lawsuit can punish a negligent individual, provide a victim with a sense of closure, and perhaps result in the recovery of much needed compensation.

Should I settle my accident case or go to trial?

After your accident, you may have spent a lot of your recovery thinking about how to pay for your medical care. While your insurance may have covered some of the costs, you may also have out-of-pocket expenses that have crippled your budget. Additionally, there is the principle of the thing if the accident that caused your injuries was the result of someone else's negligence or recklessness.

Qualified medical examiners and the return to work determination

Workers' compensation benefits can be a financial lifesaver for those Californians who are injured on the job and as a result find themselves unable to work for a period of time. Although it may seem relatively simple to obtain and retain these benefits, it can actually be quite challenging. When issues regarding one's ability to qualify for benefits arise, it may be wise to acquire the assistance of an attorney who is adept at handling these types of legal cases.

Car accidents and the discovery process

A car accident can leave you reeling on many fronts. You might find yourself overwhelmed by the physical and emotional pain thrust upon you, but you could also wind up finding yourself with unsustainable financial burdens. If the wreck forces you to miss work, then you may suffer from lost wages. If you're hospitalized as a result of the crash, then you may incur substantial medical expenses. Without taking any action, these damages can leave you on the brink of ruin. Therefore, if you believe that the accident that harmed you was caused by the negligence of another, then you might want to consider pursuing a personal injury lawsuit.

California enacts new regulations to protect hotel workers

No one should have to put their health and safety on the line just to perform their job duties. Yet, this is the case for nearly every Californian. Even those who seem to work in the safest of environments can be at risk of injury or death. In many instances, this damage is caused slowly over time, which can make it difficult to identify and prevent. However, the state of California is being proactive in its attempt to protect workers, as its recent enactment of certain regulations show.

Is your pilot fit to fly?

If you fly regularly, you may have found a way to overcome the natural nervousness many feel when boarding an airplane at San Diego International Airport. However, even if you take a flight only occasionally, your confidence in the pilot is often a comforting thought. After all, pilots are well trained and experienced before they take over in the cockpit.

One dead in Encinitas pedestrian accident

The warm weather that envelops the Encinitas area year-round makes it prime for taking to the outdoors. Many area residents choose to ride bicycles or motorcycles, while others take to foot as a way to get to work or school, or merely as a form of exercise. While these individuals can certainly enjoy the outdoors in this area, it is not without its risks, as pedestrians often have to be in close proximity to moving cars and trucks. Therefore, their safety is often left in the hands of motorists who may be acting negligently.
