Trial to begin for teen accused of distracted driving

As the world has become more technology focused and the use of technology has become commonplace, the temptation for people in California to use their phones while they are driving has become a very real problem. While many acknowledge the concern that texting and driving create, as well as the danger it imposes on everyone around the texting driver, many also admit to being part of the problem at some point. 

How much is your pain and suffering worth?

Should you suffer injuries in a California car crash, you may wish to sue the person whose negligence caused the accident. If you do, you should know that you can recover two types of damages: economic and noneconomic. Your economic damages are those on which you can place a precise dollar amount, such as your medical bills. Your noneconomic damages, on the other hand, are those on which you cannot place a precise dollar amount, such as your pain and suffering.

The importance of replacing a child restraint after an accident

When families in California are involved in an automobile accident, their foremost concern is often the wellbeing and survival of their loved ones who were passengers in the vehicle. Once initial assessments are completed and it is determined that all involved persons will survive and are able to receive medical treatment for their injuries, it is just the beginning of dealing with the aftermath of the collision. 

Is there a time limitation to file a personal injury claim?

If you were in a motor vehicle accident in California and you notice that certain symptoms are not going away, you may choose to file a personal injury claim against the other driver. It is important to keep in mind there are statutes of limitation, which means you only have a certain amount of time to file the claim. That is why it is imperative to take note of any symptoms, minor or serious, after an accident so the at-fault party can cover the expenses in a timely manner.
