Two People Critically Injured in Citrus Heights Roadside Accident

Two People Critically Injured in Citrus Heights Roadside Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Citrus Heights personal injury lawyer. An accident in Citrus Heights in the evening hours of June 18 critically injured two people while three others suffered minor injuries. The incident happened after a two-vehicle collision that was minor, where others exited their vehicles to try and help. At this point, a Chevy Tahoe ran into those who were standing near the cars, causing serious injuries. Local police are asking that anyone with information call as soon as possible because any tip, even a small one, might be helpful in determining why those people were hit by the pickup.

Risks of Hydroplaning and Traumatic Injuries

I’m Ed Smith, a Car Accident Lawyer in Sacramento. Many people rely on motor vehicles to get to work, school, and to run errands. Unfortunately, when someone gets in a car, there is a risk of having an accident. Despite the driver’s education and numerous regulations surrounding motor vehicles, accidents still happen at a high rate. According to statistics published by the Association for Safe Road Travel:

  • More than one million people are killed in car accidents every year.

Lap Belts: Cause and Effect

Lap Belts: Cause and Effect

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. Buckling up your seatbelt when you get into a car is the best way to prevent injuries in case of an accident. While this is the law, there was a time when seatbelts were not required in motor vehicles. Like airbags, these safety devices came about after cars were invented. Back in the day, cars moved so slowly that injuries in car accidents were rare. However, as technology advanced and people can move from place to place more quickly, serious injuries and car crashes have become more common. Seatbelts were put into motor vehicles to prevent some of these injuries.
