How can you keep yourself and your passengers safe? Here are some warning signs of an impaired driver

3 tips to help cyclists avoid a vehicle-bicycle collision

In Van Nuys and adjoining communities, much of the land is flat. With few hills, the streets make for easy bicycle riding—except for the traffic.

If you are a cyclist who becomes the victim of a car-bicycle collision, you could suffer extremely serious injuries. Here are three tips to help you stay out of harm’s way.

Fiery truck accident leads to 9 injuries

Nine individuals suffered injuries in a recent crash involving a semi in California. The truck accident took place along Highway 1 on a Tuesday morning. According to authorities, the accident occurred because the truck's brakes failed.

At around 9:52 a.m., a truck was reportedly carrying clay. All of a sudden, the truck ended up losing its brakes while making its way onto Highway 1 from Highway 17. As a result, the truck collided with stopped traffic that was waiting in front of a red light.

What to do after a collision with a commercial truck

When a commercial truck collides with a standard car, the results can be catastrophic. While these accidents do not always result in fatalities, they can still result in severe injuries and property damage. For example, four people recently sustained serious injuries after being in an accident with a semitruck on the 118 freeway. 

No matter how severe the collision was, you should always see a doctor following a truck accident. You may not realize the magnitude of your injuries, and a doctor can help you with the claims process. Here are other actions to take after a collision with a commercial truck. 

Car accidents involving bikes a significant problem in California

A recent incident involving a California firefighter underscores the dangers of distracted and reckless driving and the impact these behaviors have on cyclists. Car accidents involving bikes are often serious or fatal, and in this specific case, the man died from injuries suffered while he was training for the cycling portion of an Ironman race. He leaves behind a wife, young children and a lengthy career with his fire department.

In California, cyclists have the right to share the road with other vehicles. Drivers of larger and heavier vehicles have the responsibility of driving cautiously and carefully around bikes, but these types of accidents are unfortunately prevalent. Much of the reason behind the high number of vehicle-bike accidents is distraction and other forms of negligent driving.

Slip-and-fall accidents may occur at retail stores

A Party City patron in a different state recently asserted that she was hurt at the retail store because the store management was careless. As a result, the female patron has filed a premises liability suit against Party City, seeking monetary damages. People in California who suffer injuries in slip-and-fall accidents or other similar property-related accidents due to business owners' negligence also have the right to pursue monetary compensation for their injuries.

The patron involved in the out-of-state case claimed that she was shopping at the store on Halloween last year. However, she suddenly came across a slick substance on the floor of the store. She reportedly stepped on it and then slipped and fell as a result.

Serious accident leads to 3 injuries

Three people recently suffered injuries in a fiery single-car crash in California, although they would have been worse off had a good Samaritan not come to their rescue. The serious accident took place early in the morning on a Sunday. Sometimes, these types of car accidents occur due to the carelessness of the person behind the wheel, in which case, he or she may be held liable for the injuries resulting from the collision.

The recent accident took place at about 5:45 a.m. According to authorities, they received a call about a crash involving a single automobile. However, before they could arrive at the scene, a man who heard the collision was able to get all three occupants of the car out.

Woman files premises liability lawsuit against hotel operator

A woman in another state recently claimed that a hotel's carelessness caused her to suffer physical injuries. She has therefore filed a premises liability lawsuit against the hotel operator, seeking a judgment for monetary damages. Any individual in California who likewise suffers harm due to a business owner's negligence has the right to take legal action in the pursuit of justice.

The woman claimed that she went to the hotel back in January. While there, she reportedly slipped and fell on ice. Reportedly, the fall caused her to strike her head against an icy pavement.

Pedestrian fatalities are rising, and vehicles are a factor

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,376 pedestrians died in 2015 as a result of collisions with vehicles, a figure that continues to rise. In Southern California, walking is a common and usually enjoyable activity for people. However, moving about on foot anywhere near traffic has its dangers.

About the increase

Slip-and-fall accidents may cause injuries in university setting

A man in another state recently blamed a university for causing his injuries. In fact, he has decided to file a premises liability lawsuit against the institution, claiming that it caused him to become injured in a slip-and-fall accident. Slip-and-fall accidents can easily occur in California and elsewhere if business property owners fail to maintain hazard-free properties, which is grounds for litigation.

In the recent out-of-state case, the man claimed that he was at the university's performance hall on Halloween back in 2016. While at the hall, he reportedly stepped on a substance in the hall's lobby. The man asserted that he ended up slipping on the substance and striking the floor as a result.
