Why dashboard cameras are so popular with drivers

Drivers in California see all kinds of behavior behind the wheel. Distracted commuters making business calls, careless truck drivers, tailgaters and road rage are par for the course. California has a poor traffic reputation, and with good reason. One of the biggest challenges on the road is other drivers.

Statistics on large truck accidents

Trucks and Commercial vehicles on California roadways can cause some of the most devastating accidents because they are so much bigger than passenger vehicles. Drivers of both passenger vehicles and large trucks must share the roadways safely. Unfortunately, each year, there are numerous accidents involving large trucks, tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles. 

How often are work zones a factor in car accidents?

Encountering road construction is a common occurrence for most California motorists, but you, like many others, may find that navigating your way through the state's growing number of work zones can prove difficult and anxiety-inducing. Avoiding work zones entirely is not realistic, however, but learning what causes many of today's work zone accidents and injuries may help you mitigate your accident risk to some extent.

What are your employer's responsibilities under FELA?

The government provides this coverage to all railroad employees around the country because such workers are not covered by any state workers compensation laws.
