What to do after a fender bender

If you drive a car in California, chances are you will be involved in more than one accident in your life. Thankfully, most accidents are not catastrophic. But regardless of how minor an accident might be, it can still be an intimidating experience.

Drive safe around cyclists

California is a great place to ride a bike, yet cyclists are the ones who are most hurt if they get into an accident with a vehicle. Motorists need to be more aware of bicycles and understand how to share the road with them, and cyclists also must do their job to make sure everyone stays safe. 

How can I best share the road with motorcycles?

As beautiful weather comes back into the daily forecast, more motorcycles will be hitting the roads in California. As a driver, you hold some responsibility for the safety of those on these smaller vehicles. Motorcycles lack the protections you have in your vehicle. Any accident with a motorcycle is much more serious and has a greater potential to be deadly for the motorcycle rider than for you. When everyone pays attention and shares the road, it can keep all vehicles on the roadways safe.

Roadway death compounds tragedy for California family

Tragedy sometimes seems to strike some families disproportionately. One family in California has had a particularly difficult three years, with the loss of one sister due to a heart attack and a second sister struggling with a rare form of brain cancer. Last week, ill fortune struck yet again when a third sister perished in a car accident in California Valley. 

What is a sprain?

A sprain is one of the most common soft tissue injuries to occur in California as a result of auto accidents. Many people have the idea that a sprain is not a serious injury. While a sprain is not life-threatening and may take less time to heal than a broken bone, it can still be a painful condition that prevents you from performing your normal activities, at least on a short-term basis. Sprains of the shoulders or knees often result from motor vehicle accidents.
