Traffic Laws for Construction Zones in California

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento car accident lawyer. Most people understand that driving through construction zones is slightly more challenging than navigating the open road. For this reason, the state of California has laws that govern motor vehicle traffic specifically in construction zones. The interstate system is undergoing an era of unprecedented expansion. Construction zones present common obstacles for motorists in California. These obstacles can lead to serious car accidents that can land people in the hospital or worse. With this in mind, the main construction zone laws are summarized below.

Mesothelioma Lawyer – El Dorado Hills

I’m Ed Smith, an El Dorado Hills Mesothelioma attorney. El Dorado Hills in California remains home to some of the highest levels of asbestos in the world. In fact, the EPA even studied the amounts of asbestos surrounding the El Dorado Hills area. Around 10 years ago, the EPA conducted a study on over 400 air samples and close to 200 soil samples. The results of this study were disturbing for anyone, especially people living in the area. Almost every single sample the EPA collected contained asbestos. These samples were collected from everywhere; baseball fields, playgrounds, local parks, sandboxes, and even the soil along bike paths.

El Dorado Hills Asbestos Exposure 

I’m Ed Smith, an El Dorado Hills Mesothelioma lawyer. The El Dorado Hills area has one of the highest concentrations of asbestos in the country. This is largely due to the large amount of asbestos mining that occurred in California during the middle of the 20th century. As these mountains were dug out, asbestos was released into the air, the soil, and the water. It flooded the entire region and made the population sick. Asbestos damages the lining of the lungs and causes a type of lung cancer called mesothelioma. Many people are wondering what mines were responsible for this kind of damage.

Delayed Symptoms After Car Accident

I’m Ed Smith, a car accident lawyer in Davis. Auto accidents are scary events. The fear they induce can be compounded by the fact that some of the physical injuries that can be sustained by children and others involved can be delayed in their arrival. Although the injuries may be latent in their arrival, it does not diminish their importance and need to have the symptoms addressed. A delay in treatment can complicate a traumatic injury.
