Drowsy driving is as dangerous as drunk driving

Today's motorists are tired, thanks in large part to grueling schedules, jam-packed roads and the general demands of family and day-to-day life. Though the dangers of driving while drowsy are not as well-documented as those associated with driving after consuming drugs or alcohol, both behaviors have the capacity to affect you in similar ways.

Landlords must make repairs to ensure properties are safe

Most California property owners who rent homes to tenants realize that being a landlord comes with a lot of responsibilities.

Nevertheless, there are some landlords who seem to prefer not to spend money on repairs, and these individuals are usually referred to slumlords.

Premises liability claims involving residential property

An injurious accident can happen virtually anywhere and at any time, but if a landlord fails to keep his or her property safe and free of potentially dangerous obstacles, it increases the chances of injury even more. When it comes to tenants who are injured at their rented residences, and when those injuries are deemed to be the fault of the landlord or property manager, it could give rise to a premises liability claim.

What types of compensation can I claim?

If you suffered an injury in a car accident, on someone else's property or at the hands of someone else, the person or entity responsible for your accident should also be responsible for covering associated expenses. The amount you may receive in compensation can vary broadly based on the type of injury you suffered, where it occurred and how much it is expected to impact you in the future. In considering these variables, you will find it important to understand the different types of compensation so you can determine what kind best fits your specific circumstances.

Increased accident risks during the end of Daylight Saving Time

The end of Daylight Saving Time is here and that means we will be turning back our clocks an hour and get to sleep for one more hour. This is probably welcome relief to sleep deprivation for most, but the time change can also be deadly. In fact, there is a statistical increase in car accidents and other safety events during the time following this change of the clocks.
