Motor vehicle accidents: Hit-and-run crash injures child

Choosing to leave the scene of an accident is not only unlawful, but such a decision could also leave any injured parties without medical attention for extended periods. Those who do not get the necessary treatment following motor vehicle accidents may run a greater risk of suffering long-term or even permanent injuries in the process. A 12-year-old child is in the hospital with critical injuries following a recent hit-and-run accident in California.

Those who operate a motor vehicle at a high rate of speed are inherently less capable of handling a multitude of driving scenarios. Those who encounter a speeding driver may also be left with insufficient time to respond to the situation and they could be the ones left suffering when a collision occurs. One person has died during a recent hit-and-run car accident involving a speeding driver in California.

A sudden and unexpected move on the part of a driver runs the risk of causing others nearby to be caught off guard and unprepared to react to the situation. While in many cases, such a scenario may only force other drivers to slam on the brakes or make an unexpected lane change, there is always a chance things could take a turn for the worse. One person has died and two others suffered injuries in a recent car accident that took place in California.

The presence of impairment can have a substantial impact on a person's ability to safely operate a vehicle. Those who drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs run the risk of creating an unfortunate scenario that could place the safety of everyone close by in harm's way. A recent car accident involving a suspected drunk driver has reportedly claimed the lives of two individuals in California.

Individuals who ride as a passenger in a vehicle often have little to no control over the actions of the driver. Should the negligent actions of the driver cause a collision to occur, the passengers could end up being the ones who suffer the consequences. Three individuals have died and another suffered serious injuries in a recent car accident involving a single vehicle in California.

It is no secret that operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can be a dangerous decision. Unfortunately, similar forms of negligence remain a major concern and impaired driving continues to be one of the leading causes of severe motor vehicle accidents. A recent collision involving a suspected drunk driver in California has reportedly left three individuals with severe injuries.

It can take little more than a couple of seconds for a vehicle to veer off course and drift into oncoming lanes. This brief span of time may leave oncoming drivers with little chance of reacting to the situation. Motor vehicle accidents that take place under similar scenarios can have catastrophic consequences. A two-vehicle accident that took place in California has reportedly claimed the life of one person and left two others with severe injuries.

California pedestrian deaths on the rise

According to CNBC, California and four other states accounted for half of the pedestrian fatalities across America in 2018. America's pedestrian death toll of 6,227 was 250 deaths higher than the previous year. In fact, since 2008, pedestrian deaths increased by 41%. Estimates now say that 16% of traffic fatalities are pedestrians.

How do I know if my car insurance covers medical bills?

If you recently sustained or caused injuries in an accident in California, you may be concerned about whether or not your insurance policy covers medical costs. The best source of information is your insurance company. If you sign into your policy online or view your insurance card, it should show you what your policy covers and does not cover. If you financed your car, there may be a greater likelihood that you have full coverage.
