4 common factors that may have contributed to your truck accident

Getting behind or near a tractor-trailer when driving on the California highways is not an unusual occurrence. You may be trying to get to your destination and find yourself around one or more of these big rigs, and could understandably feel a little nervous. After all, you may be unsure whether the driver of the truck sees you, or whether he or she might make a sudden move that puts you in danger.

Study shows that distracted teens cause vehicle crashes

California residents may have heard that Teen Driver Safety Week is set to occur from Oct. 20 to Oct. 26, and MSU researchers have already released information about teen drivers from a study conducted between 2011 and 2013. Researchers tracked the driving habits of 3,400 drivers with the help of monitoring instruments. The study offered researchers a surprising amount of information regarding events occurring inside and outside vehicles. In comparison with traditional studies, this study offered previously undiscovered information about what causes vehicle crashes.

How some states rank in teenage drunk driving

Many California residents are aware of the National Minimum Legal Drinking Act. This act mandates that a person needs to be over 21 years of age in order to consume alcohol in the US. Violating this act can bring about different forms of punishment. Despite having us act in place, there are still a large number of teenagers who consume alcohol.

Debunking the notion of the one-bite rule

The potential of encountering an aggressive or vicious dog while on your bike in Pomona (and your recommended course of action) has been detailed on this blog in the past. Yet as has also been pointed out, despite your best efforts at escaping such a situation, the threat of suffering a dog bite is ever-present. Oftentimes a bite may not develop into a significant injury, yet there may be just as many cases where the damage inflicted upon you can be extensive. Those in such situations often come to us here at The Law Offices of Christian J. Amendt asking what legal recourse might be available to them. 

A poorly designed ramp can lead to a wheelchair accident

If you use a wheelchair because of a temporary or permanent health condition, you already know how challenging it can be to get where you need to go. Certain natural areas may be difficult or impossible to access in your wheelchair, but most other places should provide accommodations for you.

Reviewing backover accidents

While high-speed collisions involving vehicles and pedestrians tend to dominate the headlines, there is another equally-as-common type of auto-ped accident that does not get near as much publicity; backovers. These are those accidents where a driver backs over a pedestrian. Most of these accidents occur in driveways or parking lots, and in many cases, the driver knows the victim. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 292 backover accidents occur in the U.S. every year. Sadly, 35 percent of these accidents involve children that are under the age of 5.
