May 2016 Archives

The costs of a dog bite

May 15 was the start of National Dog Bite Prevention Week, which aims to teach dog owners how to keep them from biting. It is sponsored by the U.S Postal Service, insurance companies and animal enthusiasts themselves. While dog owners may think that their insurance will cover the bill, some in California could be charged with a misdemeanor as well as risk being dropped by their insurance company.

Woman faces criminal charge after California crash

An accident that took place at about 8:42 p.m on May 12 left one person dead and two people injured. Police said that a 32-year-old women had been taken into custody after causing the crash near Yorba Street and East Chapman Avenue in Orange. At the time that she was taken into custody, she was driving on a suspended license because of violations that occurred in 2012 and 2014.

Pedestrian accidents on the rise

Many Californians enjoy walking from place to place rather that being behind the wheel when the weather is nice. Unlike occupants of cars, pedestrians do not have protection from the frame of a vehicle, and if they are struck by an auto they are much likelier to suffer severe injuries that can often be fatal.

How self-driving cars might impact auto insurance

Google has been testing its autonomous vehicles on California roads. While some people believe that the mass adoption of the self-driving car may spell an end to the auto insurance industry, that may not be the case. Even if some manufacturers agree to self-insure their vehicles, it could result in a barrier to entry that smaller businesses may not be able to overcome. It may also create situations where companies refuse to allow a car to venture into an area where accidents or thefts occur at a high rate.

Tips for motorcycle safety

There are a number of myths about motorcycle safety that cyclists in California should be familiar with. For example, leather is not just for fashion. It helps prevent scrapes and cuts in an accident. That full-faced helmets restrict visibility is another myth. The Department of Transportation requires all such helmets to be constructed so that peripheral vision is unaffected. Furthermore, unlike open-face helmets, they protect from bugs, weather and other distractions that may also be impediments to safety.

Truck accident injuries on the rise

Fatal truck accidents decreased in 2014 throughout the country from the previous year, but injury rates were up, and truckers in California and across the U.S. are wondering what is causing this. According to a report from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there was a 21 percent increase in truck accident injuries in 2014, but the number of trucks involved in fatal accidents was down 5 percent from the 2013 total.
