Manufacturer liability in recreational vehicle accidents

An RV trip through California's hills may be one of your favorite family pastimes, but what happens when your recreational vehicle fails you? If you have suffered a motor vehicle accident and/or injury due to a manufacturer defect in a recreational vehicle, you may be eligible to pursue charges against said manufacturer. At Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, we understand exactly how you feel when your trust in a vehicle manufacturer is betrayed.

California seat belt regulations fall short in bus accidents

When seat belt safety is paramount to driver safety, it can be shocking to learn that California has historically had no formal law in effect regarding seatbelts on public buses and school buses. At the law firm of Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, we understand your fear that a trip home on public transit could quickly become a trip to the emergency room.

Can you testify in your own accident case after a brain injury?

As you drive on California's busy streets and highways, an accident can happen out of nowhere. One of the greatest fears in the case of a motor vehicle accident is the fear of suffering a brain injury. While some brain injuries are mild, others can lead to permanent impairment ranging from minor cognitive and functional difficulties to complete loss of capacity. A severe enough brain injury can lead to coma or death. If you pursue a suit in the case of a motor vehicle accident and resulting brain injury, are you able to testify in your own trial?

The difference between drunk and distracted driving

While drunk driving and distracted driving can both cause motor vehicle accidents or even death, penalties vary widely in the state of California. The State of California website defines drunk driving as operating a regular passenger vehicle with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or higher. Driving under the influence will result in a DUI, and immediate suspension of driving privileges upon the first DUI offense.
