Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents Archives

Daylight Saving Time and night driving

This year, Daylight Saving Time comes to a conclusion on Nov. 3. That's when we will "fall back" and change the clocks in California and many other states. It's important to remember this for scheduling purposes, though modern smartphones -- which many people use almost exclusively to tell time -- should reset themselves.

10-year-high for fatal red light accidents

One of the most dangerous situations at an intersection is when someone runs a red light. The drivers on the cross street often have no idea they are at risk as they enter the intersection, and many of these crashes happen at high speeds as people try to beat the yellow light and fail to do so.

Prolonged grief after someone passes away

If you lose a loved one in a car accident, the most natural reaction in the world is to go through a period of grief or mourning. You never need to feel bad about this or assume that you have to move on quickly. Take the time to mourn properly. Turn to friends and relatives for emotional support. Do not be afraid to talk to medical professionals about what you're experiencing, if necessary.

Convertibles are more dangerous in rollover crashes

In California, there's a lot to love about driving a convertible. You get to feel that warm summer sun on your face, you get to feel the wind in your hair and you really feel like you are part of this beautiful landscape as you drive through the countryside.

Driving faster does increase your risks of injury or death

People often think that they're skilled enough to drive faster without actually increasing the risks that they face. That's why so many people break the speed limit. They don't see it as gambling with their lives as they try to get to their destinations more quickly.

Man arrested after shooting and deadly car accident

A California man is in police custody after he was involved in a shooting, a car chase and a deadly accident recently. The man was on parole, but he was being pursued by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. United States Marshals were also involved. It's not clear why he was considered to be at large.

When can you seek loss of consortium compensation after a crash?

Losing someone in a fatal car crash has a broad range of consequences for your life. There are the obvious emotional implications of that loss, as well as the financial consequences of a death in the family.
