Who are the potential defendants in a semitruck accident case?

Plaintiffs who are pursuing personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits should try to name as many defendants as possible since this will help maximize the chances of recovering just compensation. In a commercial trucking accident caused by a negligent truck driver, the potential defendants will include more than just the truck driver. These potentially liable parties could include:

Transportation companies

3 arrested in Roseville after police pursuit

Crashes can happen for many reasons, but one of the most surprising is when a crash happens due to a police chase. The police generally do not chase suspects when it means that they could put others in danger. They did in this case, and the suspects ended up getting into multiple collisions.

In the interesting story about the car crash that happened in Roseville, the police in Roseville began by reporting that three men were suspected of theft in one of the Apple stores in a local mall. They quickly fled the store at around 2 p.m., and when officers arrived, witnesses were able to describe the vehicle.

How do we make the roads safe for walkers?

If you like to walk, you've probably had a few narrow escapes that made you jump out of the way of a passing car or truck. You might even hear your friends say it is getting too dangerous to walk in California.

Your friends have a point. The number of people injured in motor vehicle accidents while walking has gone up dramatically in recent years. California is one of the most dangerous states for pedestrians. Whether you walk to work or school, or you simply walk across the parking lot to the grocery store, you would be wise to learn how to protect yourself from harm.

What should you do after a dog bite?

Smart dog owners understand that even the friendliest, gentlest pet is unpredictable. Dogs can provide companionship and protection. However, when they feel afraid, frustrated or cornered, they may react by biting, growling or other aggression. If you have ever suffered a bite from a dog, you know how painful it can be.

In California, dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets even if they never suspected the animal would attack. To improve the chances that you or your child will recover medically and financially from a dog bite, there are steps you can take.

What's the timetable for recovery from a brain injury?

Most people who suffer from a serious brain injury in a car accident will want to know how long it's going to take for them to get better. The truth is that the road to recovery after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) could take some years, and even then, many victims will endure lifelong disabilities that never completely heal.

One thing that TBI victims can look forward to is swift immediate improvements. The most rapid and noticeable healing takes place within the first six months of the healing process. Progress and healing will be steady and visible during this first half-year, then the improvements will slow -- but they will likely continue to make noteworthy advancements from the six-month mark to the two-year mark, even if those advancements aren't as fast as the initial half-year.

Man's death draws attention to poor care in Sacramento facility

Personal injuries can occur in many different ways, and one of the worst is when an elderly person is injured because of the lack of care provided at a care facility. According to one news article from Sept. 5, a man was visiting his stepfather and became concerned when he found out that the man had fallen several times in the last year.

He was living at Carlton Senior Living, which is an assisted-living facility in Sacramento. The number of falls was frightening, and no changes were being made to help him avoid falls in the future. The man's doctor prescribed him a wheelchair. He was also supposed to have alarms on his bed to let the staff know that he would be moving around and upright. This could indicate that he was a fall risk and help them know when to assist him.

Why do trucking accidents happen?

If the California roads seem crowded to you, there is good reason. Over 15 million tractor-trailers and other large trucks are on U.S. highways each year. With that many trucks on the road, it is no surprise that the number of accidents involving trucks has increased 20 percent since 2008.

As you can imagine, an accident involving a tractor-trailer is more likely to cause serious or even fatal injuries. Since increased safety measures have not reduced the rate of crashes, researchers are examining the most common causes of truck accidents to tackle the root problems.

How effective are seat belts really?

If you ever feel tempted to doubt the potentially life-saving benefits of seat belts – don't. Failing to wear a seat belt in a motor vehicle could be one of the worst decisions you ever make. In fact, millions of Americans are suffering from life-altering injuries, or they have died, as a direct result of not using this important piece of safety equipment.

If you need a little more motivation to buckle up the next time you're in an automobile, consider these statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • The use of a seat belt will lower your risk of dying or getting hurt in the event of a crash by approximately 50 percent.
  • In 2016, approximately 15,000 lives were saved by seat belts.
  • Airbags alone are not enough to save your life in a crash. The CDC claims that the combined use of seat belts and airbags offers the most protection in the event of a collision.

Finding a daycare that will keep your child safe

Your children are more important to you than anything. Because you want them to be safe and healthy, you do what you can to protect them. You read food labels, make sure they get regular checkups and never start the car until they are buckled safely into their car seats.

Searching for a daycare provider requires the same care. Since your children will spend many hours at daycare, you want to be sure that they are safe and protected. You can do this by carefully screening each daycare you consider. Any daycare on your list should feel warm and inviting to your children. More importantly, the staff should welcome your questions and concerns.

What makes an sport utility vehicle roll over?

A rollover accident is one of the most dangerous. People who don't wear seat belts could be thrown around the vehicle. Even if everyone is wearing them, there is a potential for the vehicle to be crushed inward, pinning people in place and trapping them when they're most in need of medical care.

One of the most important things to know about rollover vehicle crashes is why they happen. Any vehicle can roll over given the right circumstances, but sport utility vehicles (SUVs) are particularly prone due to their height and width.
