Experiencing distracted driving could influence you later on

Whether it's because of national campaigns or because you read about it on our blog, most people know that texting and driving is dangerous because it forces a driver's attention away from the road. But while it may only be for a few seconds, this is long enough, scientists say, to cause a serious or even fatal accident.

How being in a hurry could cost someone their life

We've all experienced that feeling of anxiety in the pit of our stomachs that tell us we're going to be late arriving at our destination. Whether it's work or a sporting event, our desire to avoid excessive tardiness may cause us to do things we might normally avoid, like speeding in our vehicle to get to our destination.

Be on the lookout for bicyclists this spring or risk a lawsuit

As we have said time and again on this blog, drivers need to be aware of their surroundings. Because of the size of their vehicles and the weight behind them, motor vehicles present a major danger to pedestrians and bicyclists alike. Oftentimes, accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists result in serious and even fatal injuries because they do not have the same protection that a person in a vehicle has.

Locating where accidents are occurring

We hear again and again about efforts to make the streets in Los Angeles safer for pedestrians. Still these accidents continue to occur. There were over 19,000 reported pedestrian-vehicle collisions in Los Angles between 2003 and 2009 – an average of 2,700 per year.

Can I file a claim after a crash if I wasn't wearing a helmet?

Many motorcyclists in Los Angeles are aware that California has helmet laws. According to state statutes, you must wear a safety helmet that meets certain standards while operating a motorcycle. So what happens if you are involved in an accident and were not wearing a helmet? Can if affect your ability to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim?

Warmer weather means more motorcyclists and chances for crashes

Have you started to notice the temperature steadily rising each week? Or have you noticed even more people wearing shorts? That's because spring is upon us here in California. And while springtime means a lot more for people who live in states where it snows during the winter months, it's still a big deal for people here in Los Angeles too because it means warmer weather and more chances to be outside.
