Drunk driving is a continual problem on California roads. In order to combat this deadly danger, a new state bill has been proposed which would lower the legal blood-alcohol level for drivers in California to .05%.
Unfortunately, accidents involving bicyclist happen far too often. In urban areas like Los Angeles, bicycle accidents are even more common. A study done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that 75 percent of all the fatal bicycle accidents that occurred in 2017 (the latest year with available data) happened in urban areas. The mix between heavy traffic and cyclists can truly lead to deadly accidents or accidents causing serious injuries
Many times, when a Los Angeles car accident occurs it is hard to determine exactly who is at fault. This is especially true if several cars were involved in the accident. A person injured in this type of accident may wonder if they will be able to be compensated for their injuries, even if it looks like they may have been partially at fault for the accident.
Personal injuries can result from a variety of accidents. When you are hurt because of the negligence or carelessness of another person, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Whether those injuries came from a Los Angeles car or truck accident, a premise accident, or even a pedestrian accident, the person at fault should be held responsible for any injuries they may have caused you.
When a person suffers a head injury, from an incident such as a fall, hit, or other type of accident, it is crucial that medical attention is given to the brain. The head and brain are both crucial and fragile areas of the body, and although there may be no outside signs of harm, a head injury can result in brain injuries that can have serious and life-changing consequences. A brain injury that is particularly serious is known as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
When it comes to hazards on U.S. roads, drunk driving remains one of the deadliest dangers out there. According to a study done by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, “Every day in the United States, 29 people die in an alcohol-impaired driving crash—one death every 49 minutes—making it a persistent public health and safety problem.”
Often times medical care for unexpected injuries can be extremely costly and you may not be able to afford paying all your bills upfront, out of pocket. Additionally, sometimes injuries exceed what your own insurance is willing to pay, leaving you to cover the remaining costs which can be extremely expensive. In these types of situations, a personal injury medical lien is a possibility.
