Can strong winds cause a car crash?

From intoxicated driving to distractions that divert the attention of drivers, traffic collisions happen for an array of reasons. However, you may want to watch out for other risks that could lead to a crash, such as strong winds. If you drive in Oakland, or on roads anywhere in the state of California, you may want to watch out for hazards that could be present when winds pick up.

Avoid Swimming Pool Liability Issues

With the amazing Californian weather, backyard swimming pools are quite popular. However, these fun spots are also very dangerous. They pose a risk to not only homeowners and invited guests but to anyone who can gain access to them. This makes it the pool owner's responsibility to ensure the pool is as safe as possible and that access is restricted and monitored. Pool owners can avoid liability issues by making a few assurances.

Are catastrophic injuries treated differently than in the past?

If you or someone you know suffered a catastrophic injury in California in the past, the chances of that injury leading to death were quite high. However, thanks to medical advancements, chances of surviving such injuries has increased, along with long-term care options. According to Business Insurance, in some situations, injuries that once would leave a worker disabled for life are now treatable and the person may even be able to return to work.

Why are truck drivers so exhausted?

That truck driver you see on the road in San Francisco may have already been on the road for hours, but the trip alone is probably not enough to contribute to deadly fatigue. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, although truck drivers often do work as many as 14 hours a day, there are other contributors to the mind-numbing exhaustion they may suffer.
