Dangerous products put lives at risk

2016 figures continue trend of declining road safety

It may feel as though as we progress in the driving world, safety would only improve with time. Cars get better equipment; people are better trained and equipped to drive; and technology exponentially gets better. As such, you would think that driving fatalities and traffic fatalities would decline with this seemingly inherent incline in technology and driving experience. However, a new report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration makes it abundantly clear that such a point is not true.

On car accidents and legal help

Car accidents claim lives every day. And even when they aren't fatal, they can still change lives. The injuries that you can suffer in a car accident are myriad, and most of the harm can be debilitating and long-lasting, if not permanent. Even whiplash can dramatically alter the way you live your life for weeks, if not months. This is not hyperbole. Car accident injuries are horrible, and the victims in these wrecks should pursue justice if another party was negligent in the lead-up to the crash.

Car 'misses bridge,' causes fatal wreck

A tragic car accident in Los Angeles, California claimed the lives of two people and left two others injured. The wreck is a bizarre one, as the source article says that the vehicle "missed a bridge" over the 101 freeway and then went flying over six lanes of traffic before landing in the southbound lanes and crashing with another car. The two people that were injured had to be transported to the hospital -- one was in critical condition while the other was in serious condition. The extent of their injuries isn't known.

Street racing, intoxicated driving play roles in fatal crash

A fatal accident in Los Angeles is being blamed on street racing and drunk driving after a 38-year-old drove down a street in the 80-90 mile per hour range. He plowed into another vehicle, killing the 62-year-old driver. The struck car then went careening into other vehicles, with the wreck ultimately involving seven vehicles in total. Several other people suffered injuries in the crash. Afterwards, the police arrested the 38-year-old because a sobriety test found he was intoxicated.

The logistics of a car accident-related wrongful death lawsuit
