Accident during training leaves Marine dead

Many in California no doubt feel a strong sense of security when they are at work. These secure feelings likely come from the assumption that given the control that one has over the tasks related to their job, they should then be able to control the situations that they encounter at work. Yet what about those whose work places them in positions where they could encounter danger (such as those whose jobs involve being outdoors or dealing with tense situations). While one can certainly feel secure in their ability to do their job, they cannot anticipate accidents or threats that might arise during the course of actually doing them. 

Distracted driving bill heads to Governor's desk

Residents in California often find that their state is among the first to enact major legislative changes, especially those designed to improve the environment or protect the safety of its citizens. One area in which California has led the nation is in combatting distracted driving. Handheld use of cell phones was banned in 2009, long before most other states followed suit. Today, there is an effort underway to expand the state's distracted driving laws.

How big is California's drunk driving problem?

Most people in California are well aware that driving a vehicle while intoxicated is illegal. In recent decades, the laws against drunk driving have become stronger with penalties seemingly quite severe. Changes in society, such as the prevalence of ridesharing options, make it easier than ever before to find alternatives to driving after consuming alcohol. These facts, however, seem to be unable to make the level of change in people's behavior that is really needed.

San Jose authorities search for cause of fiery crash

Almost no one takes to Fremont's roads intending to cause a car accident; on the contrary, most take their individual charge to drive safely in order to protect those on the road around them very seriously. Yet intent does not necessarily have to be present in order to assign liability in a car accident. Indeed, most collisions are just that: accidents. However, the responsible party typically must shoulder the blame when it comes to covering the expenses of those affected by an accident (regardless of whether or not their fault was due to recklessness, negligence or mere circumstance). 

Defining negligent entrustment

It may not be difficult for most drivers in California to remember when they first began to drive. The benefit of hindsight likely affords them a perspective that reveals that their inexperience (and immaturity) may have prompted them to engage in some driving behaviors that they might think twice about today. Indeed, information shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that teenage drivers are more likely to display reckless behavior while behind the wheel. 

The dangers posed by drowsy drivers

We here at Raymond E. Frost & Associates often hear from clients that they were unaware just how many risks they can encounter on the road. Much attention is paid to drunk drivers, so much so that many now think twice before getting behind the wheel after drinking. Yet there are plenty of other dangerous drivers out there other than those driving while drunk. You may find that the driver who hit you was not totally in control of all of their faculties, yet not due to alcohol.
