Personal injury and wrongful deaths suits might follow I-5 crash

A multi-vehicle accident caused delays on southbound Interstate 5 in Woodland on a recent Thursday afternoon. The aftermath of this fatal crash might lead to a personal injury and a wrongful death claim. Although California Highway Patrol officers say drug or alcohol impairment was suspected on the part of the driver who crashed into the other vehicles.

Can personal injury award ever make up for pain and suffering?

A slip-and-fall accident can happen in the blink of an eye. However, the pain and suffering after such an incident can last for years. When consumers in California slip or trip while out shopping, they could suffer one or more of a variety of injuries. If this happens due to the negligence of the store owner, the victim likely has grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Personal injury lawsuits might follow crash that injured veterans

Workers on California highways will always be vulnerable, whether they are doing road maintenance or picking up litter.

Many personal injury cases in the state's civil courts involve injured workers and distracted drivers.

Personal injury: Man loses mother and grandmother in crash

When a loved one dies in a car accident, the trauma that surviving family members suffer could be severe.

A wrong-way driver reportedly caused the personal injury that led to the deaths of both.

Personal injury: Swimming pool safety legislation updated

With the California summer in full swing, parents must consider the safety of their children around swimming pools. Authorities say drownings of children between ages 1 and 4 years are the second leading cause of toddler deaths in the state, and even those who survive such incidents could suffer a personal injury such as irreversible brain damage that might cause permanent disabilities. Residential swimming pools are particularly dangerous because homeowners might think that just being around the house is sufficient supervision, while children should never be unaccompanied at any swimming pool.

How can passengers take precautions against personal injury?

Many young and inexperienced drivers will use California roads this summer. Multiple lives are lost in car accidents involving teen drivers every year, and in many cases, it is the passengers who are killed or severely injured.

Personal injury: Tired wrong-way driver kills 1 in 8-car crash

Drivers on California roads must have valid driver's licenses, comply with the prevailing traffic regulations, and be sober and alert.

This is probably what will be the consequence of a recent crash on a highway in Petaluma.

Personal injury: Premises liability suit follows death of golfer

Who would ever expect to suffer life-threatening injuries on a golf course? A recent premises liability lawsuit that was filed in California shows that it can happen. In fact, in this case, a golfer apparently died just more than a week after he suffered a personal injury on the defendant's golf course. The deceased golfer's surviving family members filed this suit against the golf course owner after they lost their loved one in March last year.

Personal injury: How safe are residents of gated communities?

Last November, a resident in a luxury, high-end apartment complex was found murdered outside his California residence.
