Los Angeles Motor Vehicle Accident Blog

Troubling vehicle fatality statistics nationally for 2015

A recent article authored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration calls select vehicle accident numbers "a troubling departure from a general downward trend."

United States Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx is a bit more succinct, terming them "a call to action."

Car accident injuries: running a wide gamut of possibilities

Insurance companies have an intimate grasp on all the following injuries, routinely conjuring up defenses geared toward eliminating their legal obligations to compensate victims.

Fortunately for the latter, experienced personal injury attorneys are intimately familiar with insurers' payment-avoidance strategies and can advocate aggressively on behalf of an accident victim to help ensure that he or she secures a meaningful recovery in response to third-party negligence.

Revised federal stance on school bus seat belts announced

It's been termed a "new federal position."

And, indeed, it is, marking a notable departure from previous utterances from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration officials regarding seat belt use on school buses across the country.

Los Angeles to bring in artist to help with traffic safety

There are many challenges related to making a city a safe place for bicyclists and pedestrians. Sometimes, creative solutions are the best way to address these challenges. Might the world of art hold some answers as to how to creatively address pedestrian and bicyclist safety issues here in Los Angeles?

Los Angeles is starting a program aimed at exploring this possibility. The program, recently announced by the mayor, is referred to as the Creative Catalyst Artist in Residence Program. This program will involve selecting an artist to be embedded in the transportation department here in Los Angeles. The artist ultimately selected for this position will receive a commission for serving this role. The city is currently in the process of taking applications for the role. 

Vehicle rollover crashes often feature common catalysts

Following is a set configuration of factors that can -- and too often does -- lead to a tragic roadway consequence in California and nationally.

A motorist is driving a van or SUV. He or she is traveling on a rural road that has undivided lanes. The vehicle is traveling in excess of the posted speed limit, and the driver has recently consumed alcohol.

Truckers' health: problem needs to be recognized, dealt with

Commercial truck drivers in California and nationally face a number of formidable challenges as they go about their jobs, with much of what faces them on a daily basis also having a spillover effect on other drivers they encounter.

Take fatigue, for instance. We note on the Truck Accident page of our personal injury website at the Los Angeles law firm of Scott J. Corwin that "driver fatigue is one of the main reasons for truck accidents."

Accident-based evidence supports tougher bike helmet laws

The results are in on a study authored by university researchers, and the material findings delivered recently before a national group of surgeons render it eminently clear where those researchers stand on the issue of bicycle helmets: They're solidly in favor of compulsory-use laws and strict enforcement.

And it's basically a no-brainer, they say.

Report: Drugged driving under the radar, commands more attention

We certainly know that drunk drivers are a major threat and outright scourge on roads across California and the rest of the country. Drinking and driving do not mix, and linking the two activities brings tragic results to high numbers of people in passenger vehicles -- as well as for bicyclists and pedestrians -- each year in the United States.

A new study drafted under the auspices of the Governors Highway Safety Association duly notes the perils of drunk driving, but also goes beyond that concern to underscore yet another road-related danger that is reportedly every bit as serious.

Spinal cord injuries: Access to quality care a critical need

News regarding a ribbon-cutting ceremony and the related opening of a health center termed as "a state-of-the-art long-term care facility" earlier this month in Long Beach brings to mind several key points concerning spinal cord injuries and treatment.

Here's one: It is edifying indeed to note that impassioned advocacy coupled with real commitment can result in such a facility becoming a reality. The center -- a creation that reportedly owes centrally to the joint efforts of proponents in both the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the nonprofit group Paralyzed Veterans of America -- was created to house and treat veterans suffering with spinal cord injuries who cannot live with family members or independently.
