What does standard of care mean?

If you are hurt in the state of California as a result of another party's negligence, you might have heard of the phrase "standard of care." It is a term that people should be familiar with because it refers to the responsibility that individuals have to their fellow human beings as they go about their daily lives. A failure to live up to a standard of care could create significant legal trouble for the person who neglects this duty.

When should I change the tires on my vehicle?

California motorists hoping to avoid a nasty accident on the road should look down to the tires on their vehicles as a way to help prevent problems while driving. Whether you are a commercial truck driver, deliverining freight or taking passengers to destinations, or use your vehicle for personal needs only, maintaining a strong set of tires can make the difference between a safe road journey and suffering an automobile collision.

How much is a commercial vehicle accident settlement?

It would be difficult to determine exactly how much you might receive in the form of a truck accident settlement in California. You could find figures, but average settlement numbers are often useless at best and misleading at worst. The fact is that your settlement would probably depend almost entirely on several variables, such as the details of your case and your side's negotiating capabilities.

Can excessive stimulus tire out a truck driver?

Long drives can be a problem for most California drivers, but especially for truckers. According to Trucks.com, large truck collisions cause over 4,000 fatalities a year. If a truck driver is exhausted and not alert, the amount of damage a truck driver can cause could be more devastating than a regular passenger vehicle. A trucker that simply drives off the road, slams into a telephone post, or even collides with another motorist, will have much more damage to deal with. While keeping truckers stimulated seems like is a good way to keep them active and aware, the truth is that some stimuli are excessive and can actually tire out a truck driver.
