Problemas de Responsabilidades en Accidentes de Reacción en Cadena

Auto Accident
Pocos tipos de accidentes son más terribles que un accidente automovilístico de reacción en cadena. Estos accidentes generalmente incluyen un automóvil que choca con otro automóvil, otro vehículo, etc. Un tipo de reacción en cadena particularmente peligrosa es un accidente en el que ocurre un accidente y los conductores que se aproximan no pueden detenerse antes de chocar con vehículos averiados. Cuando varios conductores están involucrados en accidentes, el problema puede agravarse rápidamente. Por ejemplo, si está sentado en un semáforo y un automóvil lo golpea por detrás y el automóvil lo golpea frente a usted, ¿es usted responsable? La respuesta a esta pregunta es "probablemente no" porque nada de lo que hizo causó daños al vehículo que tenía delante. En cambio, es probable que el conductor que lo conoció…

How Tailgating and Brake Checking Lead to Crashes

How Tailgating and Brake Checking Lead to Crashes

Auto Accident
Tailgating is a common behavior on the road that is considered to be a form of aggressive driving. When a driver thinks that you are driving too slowly or they want you to move over so they can pass you, they might start following you very closely, which can be stressful.   This practice can result in accidents and injuries to many motorists. Tailgating First, tailgating can be distracting for the front driver, especially if they do not have a chance to move out of the lane right away. The front driver will naturally be focusing on the menacing driver behind them instead of the road ahead, which can lead to mistakes. Further, following too closely does not give the rear driver enough room to slow down or stop if the…

Auto Accident
As spring break is right around the corner and summer break is in sight, many families are planning road trips. Road trips are also a popular form of travel with COVID-19 concerns, keeping many people off planes. If your family is headed out on a road trip, you should keep the possible risks of a crash in mind. Fatigue Road trips involve long hours on the highway, and some people try to get as far as possible before stopping for the night. This can result in fatigue, and drowsy driving can be similarly dangerous to drunk driving. Always pull over or switch drivers if you are getting at all fatigued. Further, stay aware that other drivers - including truck drivers - might be fatigued, as well. Distraction Driving for long…

Liability Issues in Chain Reaction Crashes

Liability Issues in Chain Reaction Crashes

Auto Accident
There are few types of accidents that are more frightening than a chain reaction car crash. Typically, these accidents involve one car striking another that hits another vehicle, and so on. One particularly dangerous kind of chain reaction is a pile-up, in which an accident occurs, and oncoming drivers are unable to stop before hitting the disabled vehicles. When multiple drivers are involved in accidents, the issue of fault can become very complicated, quickly. For example, if you are sitting at a stoplight and a car rear-ends you and causes you to hit the car in front of you, are you liable? The answer to this question is “probably not,” as nothing you did caused the damage to the vehicle in front of you. Instead, the driver who hit you…

Why Would the Insurance Company Deny Your Car Accident Claim?

Why Would the Insurance Company Deny Your Car Accident Claim?

Auto Accident
After a car accident, people rightfully expect that the insurance company will treat them fairly and provide them with compensation for their accident-related losses. Unfortunately, all too often, victims have to fight for the compensation they deserve under California law when they should be focusing on their mental and physical recovery. To understand why insurance companies deny claims and offer lowball settlements, it’s helpful to consider their business model.

As a result, they do everything they can to deny claims or settle them for as little as possible.

Don’t Ignore Signs of Car Accident Injuries

Don’t Ignore Signs of Car Accident Injuries

Auto Accident
Car crashes are jarring events, and you can feel shaken up afterward. Some people think that feeling disoriented or sore is to be expected after a collision - after all, it was unexpected, stressful, and you experienced an impact. However, in reality, feeling disoriented, sore, stiff, or similar sensations can be the signs of serious injuries. Being tired, having a headache, and feeling dizzy or “out of it” are all commonly written off after a crash. These can actually be the effects of a concussion, which could worsen with time or develop into a more serious condition if you do not get the diagnosis and treatment recommendations you need. In addition, you might expect to be sore or stiff - especially in your neck and shoulders - if your head…
