Can you determine who is at fault in a car accident?

The aftermath of a car accident in California is rarely clear cut and you may be facing a considerable expenditure of resources to determine consequences and find solutions. One of the most difficult factors to be weighed is figuring if you were the one at fault. Fortunately, there are proactive measures you can take to better protect yourself and create the best possible chance at a fair outcome.

Understanding the definition of distracted driving

Even though driving is one of the most valuable privileges to have, many motorists often forget that attentive driving means focusing solely on the road ahead. Frequently, California drivers get caught up in the day-to-day activities that momentarily seem manageable while operating a vehicle, but distraction can cost them their life and jeopardize the lives of others in an instant.

Low-income as a factor in rising pedestrian deaths

Death on the streets and freeways around California and the country is all too common. In a post in March, we took note of a report by the National Safety Council showing that motor vehicle accident deaths shot up last year. That followed several years of declines. Now, another report is out indicating that pedestrian fatalities increased 11 percent in 2016. That compares with a 12 percent increase recorded in the period from 2006 to 2015.

Daylight saving time could cause more car accidents

California drivers may be interested to learn that there is some evidence that shows that the change to daylight saving time can have an impact on the number of car accidents. The problem is that, even though it is a minor change, the disruption in drivers' sleep schedules could alter their reaction times.

Vehicle accident deaths soared in 2016

The roads in California and across the country have become far more dangerous in recent years according to data from the National Safety Council. Motor vehicle accident deaths surged in 2015 after falling steadily for several years, and crash fatality figures released by the nonprofit safety group on Feb. 15 reveal that 2016 was the deadliest year on the nation's roads since 2007.

Is full liability always established after a car accident?

As much as it might be wished, it can be difficult to assign blame clearly in every car accident. There are so many vehicle crashes in Los Angeles every day. Police or insurance examiners cannot investigate them all. Of course, accidents resulting in injury or death warrant more attention and typically get it. Even then, though, it isn't always easy to make a clear-cut determination of accountability and liability.

Provide details when consulting an attorney after an injury crash

In our last post about car accidents, we talked about why it's wise to consult an attorney after an injury crash. The scope of issues that a crash victim in Los Angeles can face after an accident is so broad that it can be difficult to know what your rights and options are. Even if you are blamed for a crash, speaking with an attorney is advised.
