Self-driving car involved in an accident

For a few years now, Google has been developing technology for self-driving cars. Generally, these cars are extremely safe, equipped with sensors and cameras to monitor traffic and respond as a human would -- if not better. But accidents in California involving these cars has been on the rise; yet, it seems humans are the source of the problem.

What do I do after a hit-and-run accident?

Though car accidents can be a nuisance, the process of claiming insurance is generally pretty simple. You exchange information with the other driver, talk to any witnesses and go from there. But in a hit-and-run accident, you don't have the chance to get the other drivers' insurance information. At best, you may be able to get their license plate number, but even that may be a challenge.

California accident leaves 2 dead and drunk driver arrested

Police in California have charged a 65-year-old motorist with drunk driving following a fatal car accident in which two people died. The arrested driver is also a suspect in a hit-and-run accident that preceded the fatal collision by a minute according to police.

Can a violation of law constitute negligence in California?

California has a host of laws that apply to drivers when it comes to traffic safety. These laws govern behaviors ranging from driving at the proper speed to avoiding drugs or alcohol to the use of seatbelts and child restraints. So what is the effect, if any, when you get into an accident with another driver and that driver was in violation of a traffic safety law when the accident happened?

Serving alcohol to a drunk driver could lead to liability

An Orange County, California resident injured in a car collision with a drunk driver might have a right to seek compensation from someone other than just the negligent driver. Although there are exceptions that will be discussed later in this post, someone who provides alcoholic beverages to a person who is intoxicated might be liable to an individual suffering a serious injury due to the actions of the intoxicated driver.

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.

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.

Can I sue the state of California after a car accident?

It is not uncommon for a car accident or truck accident to have been caused by multiple contributing factors. Aside from the possibly negligent behavior of the other driver, it may be arguable that the road conditions themselves may have helped lead to the collision. This raises the question of whether the state of California or any of its counties, municipalities or government agencies might also be liable.

Auto accident kills motorcyclist and injures two in California

Auto accidents can happen when least expected; all it takes is for one driver to lose control for a multi-car collision to occur.
