What is property owner liability for recreational use of land?

A property owner may owe a duty of care to more people than just those who are invited onto the property by the owner or who are there with permission. In a recent post, we discussed an exception to the usual premises liability rules that would make owners liable when the injured party is a child, even a child who is trespassing.

My child was injured while trespassing; does that bar a lawsuit?

For many years, the law in California governing a property owner's liability to others, followed the notion that the legal status of the person who was injured had a direct impact on that person's ability to recover for the injuries he or she suffered. The law classed people on the property of another into categories such as "invitees," or "licensees," or "trespassers," depending on what degree of permission, if any, they had to be on the property of the landholder where they were harmed.

A car accident can interfere with even your best-laid plans

A television commercial that aired during a recent Super Bowl featured a young boy who told the viewers of all the activities of life that he would not participate in because, as the end of the ad revealed, he had been killed in a car crash. While the commercial drew some criticism about whether it was appropriate for all viewers, it nonetheless contained an important message: getting into an auto accident can have life-altering consequences even if you survive the incident.

CHP policy change on motorcycle accidents and lane splitting

In a recent post we discussed the legalization of lane splitting in California. As you may recall, lane splitting is the procedure in which a motorcycle rider passes vehicles going in the same direction on a multi-lane road by passing between two lanes. As we pointed out, studies appeared to support the safety of the practice although some people believed it might contribute to an increase in motorcycle collision incidents.

Fatal motorcycle crash statistics up 15 percent in Orange County

Cheap gas prices at the pump and an economic recession could have prevented lives from being lost in California motorcycle accidents, according to the most recent fatal motorcycle crash data available from the state. There has been a 23 percent increase in motorcycle accidents statewide that some attribute to higher gas prices and a better economy.

Bah humbug! The office party and workers' compensation claims

Whether it's the holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas or a co-worker's birthday in the middle of the summer, a workplace injury accident can dampened the spirits of an office party.

What is a "workplace" for workers' compensation purposes?

In the previous century, the definition of the "workplace" was fairly narrow. Most people walked into an office building, a manufacturing plant, or onto a piece of land where they would perform their job responsibilities. But as industries evolved into nationwide and even international conglomerates, the "traditional" workplace could be extrapolated to work being done on a company's job site in another state or even another country.

Woman charged with manslaughter after fatal car accident

A recent incident in Torrance dampened the holiday spirit and brought to light just how much damage auto accidents can cause. A California woman drove her car into a crowd leaving a Christmas program at a local church, killing four people, among them a six-year-old boy.
