Pedestrian Accident in South Sacramento Fog

Both driver and pedestrian must follow rules of the road.  A driver is usually held to a higher degree of duty than a pedestrian. What happens when fog is a factor in an accident?

How can we protect ourselves, as pedestrians, from being hit and killed by a car? How can we protect ourselves, as motorists, from hitting or killing someone with our car? These are the questions we may be asking ourselves.

biker-407123_640I have represented a significant number of clients over the years injured in motorcycle accidents.  As such, I am always interested to learn about new gear and safety devices that might help diminish, or prevent, injuries commonly suffered by people involved in these often horrible collisions.

New Motorcycle Airbag Jacket Deploys When Accident Detected

Motorcycle wear company Dainese recently announced a jacket, called the Misano 1000, that includes a built-in airbag and all of the tech necessary to automatically know when to deploy it.  The jacket works by activating its sensors 800 times a second to monitor their wearer. When they detect an accident, the jacket will inflate about two inches in the areas where an airbag is present, with the intention of protecting the wearer’s collar bone, chest, and back, as well as keeping strain off of the neck.

Head_CT_scanRecognizing a post- concussion syndrome (PCS) case is often the most difficult aspect of representing people suffering a closed head injury.

Assessment of such cases requires attorneys and intake staff to understand the basic aspects of the medicine behind such injuries, the sympotomolgy that often accompanies these injuries, as well as to recognize how to develop the damages in the case. One key aspect in evaluation of a PCS case is the understanding that the potential client may not be able to aid in recognizing or developing your understanding of the injury the he or she has sustained. As a result of their injuries, PCS clients are generally unaware that they have sustained a closed head injury nor do they appreciate the impact of the injury upon their lives. In many cases the consequences of such an injury are quite subtle and difficult to detect in casual conversation.
