Dangerous cell phone use continues to plague the roads

If you look at other drivers who are around you on the road, the chances are pretty high that at least one of them is using a cell phone while driving. This type of distracted driving has become an increasingly dangerous problem that threatens far too many innocent California motorists. After all, a distracted driver can swerve into oncoming traffic, fail to stop at a stop sign or traffic signal and neglect to yield to pedestrians who are crossing the street.

Personal injury cases and the subpoena power

When it comes to building a competent personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, there are many moving parts. While a victim focuses on recovering physical and emotional health, the victim must also think about gathering evidence and building strong legal arguments that will spur negotiations and persuade a judge and jury. This is no easy task, which is why it is critical that car accident victims engage in well thought out discovery to ensure that they are proceeding with their claim with as much knowledge as possible.

Do you know what to do if your vehicle catches on fire?

Fires are dangerous under any condition. Even if you have a fire pit and are simply roasting marshmallows, the flames still present a hazard to you and others around you. Of course, in this type of scenario, you likely have safety measures on standby, such as fire extinguishers or buckets of water, in case the flames get out of hand. However, some fires may start without you having the ability to get them under control.

Traumatic brain injury can lead to mental health issues

Some California residents who are involved in a car accident are lucky enough to escape with little to no harm. These individuals may need to nurse some bumps, bruises and cuts, but overall they are able to walk away with no long-term damage. Sadly, however, many other California residents suffer serious harm, such as brain injuries. As medical professionals continue to research these injuries they are finding that their impact can be much more significant than initially thought.

Will the insurance company make you give a recorded statement?

After suffering a serious injury in an event like a car accident, you will likely have to deal with the insurance companies. If authorities considered another driver at fault for the incident, that person's insurance company will likely have an obligation to provide the applicable payout to you. Of course, the insurance company will likely try to get out of the situation with the lowest payout possible.

Recklessness and negligence in car accidents

A car accident can have a profound impact on an individual's life. A vehicle may be seriously damaged, requiring extensive repairs or replacement, but of more concern is the physical, emotional and financial harm caused to the car accident victim. Head and neck injuries, broken bones, torn muscles and severe lacerations are all very real possibilities, any of which can result in the need for extensive medical treatment. These injuries can also force an individual to miss work and suffer emotional trauma.
