Paratransit Unfair Fair Increase

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyer. Recently, decision-makers from Sacramento Regional Transit (RT) debated a proposal with members of the community that would raise the cost of a ride on Light Rail. The same proposal would effectively eliminate the paratransit monthly pass. This is sad news for disabled folks who are on limited incomes and do not have the transit options available to them that other members of the community have. To learn more about the concerns presented by the community:

Tibial Plateau Fractures

Ed Smith is a Sacramento Bone Fracture Lawyer. The tibial plateau is the top flat surface of the tibia, which is one of the two long bones in the lower leg. Tibial plateau fractures are more common in the elderly, accounting for 8 percent of all fractures in the elderly population.  There can be fractures of the medial or lateral plateau of the tibia, with lateral tibial plateau fractures being more often isolated fracture when compared to medial plateau fractures.  About 1-3 percent of these fractures are considered open fractures.

The tibial plateau is a joint surface connecting the femur to the lower leg.  There are actually two articular surfaces on this bone with an intercondylar eminence that serves as the attachment of the cruciate ligaments.  The medial plateau is stronger than the lateral plateau, which is why there are more fractures of the lateral plateau.  Medial plateau fractures are more associated with high impact trauma such as with motor vehicle accidents.

Investigating Pedestrian Auto Accidents

A Vehicle-Pedestrian Collision Demands a Thorough Investigation

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyer. I’ve investigated pedestrian auto accidents for over thirty years. If you or a loved one have been struck by a vehicle in a pedestrian accident, you are well aware of the physical pain and financial losses that can come with these incidents. Vehicle accidents and truck accidents are deceptively complex cases that can require expert testimony in order to establish fault and the extent of your injuries. Collisions between pedestrians and vehicles are similarly complex and succeeding with a pedestrian injury lawsuit will often demand that the pedestrian’s attorney consider and be prepared to discuss with the court or jury what makes pedestrian accidents unique from motor vehicle collisions.
