$36M verdict for young pedestrian shows need for back-to-school safety

This month we've been covering pedestrian safety in light of a statewide campaign to reduce pedestrian deaths. California Pedestrian Safety Month coincides with back-to-school season, which makes it a perfect time to brush up on safe walking habits for kids.

Are you in need of legal help after a car accident?

Car accidents are devastating events in any person's life, even when they are minor in nature. A fender bender can cost hundreds of dollars and cause many headaches when the car owner presents his or her case to his or her insurer. But there are many accidents out there that cause literal headaches -- and brain injuries, and broken bones, and other serious injuries. To get into a minor car accident is to get off lucky in the world of motor vehicle accidents.

Waymo crash: another self-driving car accident

The theme of self-driving cars continues today. Our last two posts have been about the dangers presented by autonomous vehicles, and the issues that the Uber self-driving car fleet has had so far. Today, we want to talk about the company Waymo, which was formerly Google's self-driving car division. One of Waymo's self-driving vehicles was involved in a car accident recently for a reason that is similar to the problem outlined in our last post.

Problems with Uber's self-driving fleet reported

On the heels of our last post -- where we talked about the U.S. House of Representatives allowing car companies to accelerate their plans to widely release self-driving cars to the public -- we would like to detail some less than flattering news about Uber's self-driving vehicle fleet, and, more generally, some scary news for all autonomous vehicles.

Self-driving cars could be more prominent very soon

The U.S. House of Representatives has taken a big step today by passing a massive measure that will greatly accelerate the availability of self-driving cars on U.S. roads. The bill allows automakers to receive exemptions that will allow them to release 25,000 self-driving cars in the first year the rule applies without meeting existing safety standards. That level will increase to 100,000 per year in the following years.

How opioids are shaping the world of car accidents

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a massive problem on American roadways. People who engage in this behavior are knowingly putting themselves and others out on the road in danger. It is a reckless and negligent practice that no one should engage in, and yet, despite decades upon decades of ad campaigns and public service announcements, there are still plenty of people that drive drunk or under the influence of drugs.
