What is involved in a train accident claim?

Traveling by train can often help you and many other California residents get to their desired destinations. You may consider this form of travel relatively safe and give little thought to potentially suffering injuries due to an accident. Unfortunately, train accidents can occur at any time for a number of reasons, and you may find yourself among those passengers who suffer as a result.

What are the dangers of drugged driving?

When Californians go out to the store, work, school, or to head to a social gathering, they may not pay much attention to the statistics regarding negligent driving. After all, an individual can only drive defensively and hope for the best. While this is true, it may be helpful to realize just how prevalent certain dangerous driving acts are in our society so that, in the event one is in a car accident, he or she may know what to look for.

Pursuing a personal injury claim? Know about leading questions

Most individuals know the basics about a civil lawsuit. In short, they must prove that the other party acted irresponsibly, that negligence caused them harm, and their harm resulted in damages, whether they be physical, emotional, and/or financial in nature. Yet, even though that process may sound relatively simple, the truth of the matter is that it can be extraordinarily complex. After all, parties to a lawsuit must follow the rules of evidence, as well as the trial rules. These rules, when used properly, can help protect an individual's rights. When they are not utilized, then a victim can find him or herself taken advantage of by the other side.

Is my injury covered by workers' compensation insurance?

If you suffered an injury at work, you know how important it is to get workers' compensation benefits in order to cover your medical needs, lost wages and other accident-related losses. However, it is not always easy to actually obtain benefits, even when you believe you have a rightful claim. 

Pursuing a personal injury claim? Seek strong advocacy

Last week on the blog we discussed the different types of remedies that may be recovered when you succeed on a personal injury claim. This compensation can be extremely beneficial as you try to reclaim your health and get back to work. For many accident victims, insurance simply isn't enough to cover their damages, so a personal injury lawsuit is their last resort for financial stability.

Takata bankruptcy may affect air bag recall

Most people driving in California take for granted that their vehicles will keep them safe while in use. Should some sort of manufacturing error manifest itself, making the vehicles unsafe, a recall will be issued to fix the defect. However, as one instance shows, a company's legal obligations when it comes to recalls can be affected by a bankruptcy filing.

What type of damages can be sought after an auto accident?

You may have heard the sound of crunching metal, felt the jarring of your body from the impact and felt the pain of your injuries (if you didn't lose consciousness). In the chaos that followed, emergency personnel stabilized you for transport to the hospital. You may have ended up staying in the hospital and needing extensive recovery time even after you left.
