What steps should I take after a car accident?

The moments following a car accident in California can be frightening and overwhelming. Those involved may struggle to get their bearings, and, if they suffered injuries, they might be in pain and simply want medical attention. In short, the minutes and hours following a wreck can be chaotic. However, the actions taken, and those that you fail to take, may have a profound impact on your ability to recover compensation if you choose to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

Should a long-haul trucker with PTSD be on the road?

Approximately 3.5 million people here in the United States drive big rigs for a living. Around one-third of them won't finish their time behind the wheel without being involved in at least one serious wreck. Anyone who has ever been in a serious accident knows that you can't walk away from it unscathed -- at least mentally.

Two California construction workers injured in crash

As we have mentioned before on this blog, construction workers across California are often asked to put their safety on the line to better their communities by building roads, bridges and buildings. Although state laws and public service initiatives try to increase construction zone awareness and reduce speeds throughout construction areas, the fact of the matter is that many individuals continue to drive negligently in these areas, thereby putting construction workers in danger.

Workers' compensation appeal and reconsideration

Many California workers have been injured on the job. This can lead to financial hardship when wages cease and medical expenses accumulate. Fortunately, the workers' compensation system can provide financial relief, but only to those who qualify. Far too many Californians see their claims denied though, which means that they have to decide if they just want to eat their losses or if they want to appeal their claim denial in hopes of recovering the benefits they deserve.

Car accidents and herniated discs

As we have discussed previously on this blog, there are a wide variety of injuries that can be suffered in a car accident. Some are more serious than others, sometimes requiring months or years of treatment. Regardless of how serious an injury is, if it causes compensable harm and was caused by the negligence of another, then money may be recoverable via a personal injury lawsuit.
