How can you know if you have a wrongful death claim?

The unexpected loss of a loved can be catastrophic for your California family. You may find yourself dealing with medical bills and other financial impacts as well as the devastation that comes with the death of a family member. This is a difficult and emotionally challenging time, and you may be wondering how you will ever put the pieces back together. 

If your loved one died as the result of the negligent or reckless actions of another person, you have options available to you. It is possible you could have grounds for legal recourse, an option that may allow you to recoup your financial losses. This will not reverse what happened or undo the damage your family suffered, but it could be a reasonable way by which you can start to move forward after such a tragic incident

California dog owners can be held accountable for attacks

Most people probably agree pet owning is one of life’s joys, but it seems harder to get consensus that its one of life’s greatest responsibilities. Unfortunately, dog attacks can be surprisingly devastating injuries. In California, owners’ legal liability for those injuries is a powerful tool for public safety.

Walmart guides workers to high-quality MRI and CT imaging

Walmart is not famous for offering only the finest of everything for its employees. But earlier this year, the company began recommending that its employees use high-quality imaging centers to diagnose their health issues. Lower quality imaging was just not cost-effective for the discount big-box retailer.

Many e-scooter lawsuits in the U.S. must come to California

E-scooters are strangely famous for many conflicting things at once. Supposedly, they will save our cities and destroy them, foster community and spark battles in the streets, make people healthier and injure them permanently.

Strangest may be the ability of these usually California products to seem hyper-local. The agreements accepted by users of the big three e-scooter companies each specify that any litigation or negotiation between you (the customer) and the scooter company must happen in the Golden State.

Trial Set To Begin For Navy Man Accused Of Killing Four In DUI


Though the incident happened in 2016, it has taken a while for this case to reach the trial stage. You may remember when Richard Sepolio, now 27, was accused of driving under the influence of alcohol after his truck lost control on a transition ramp, flew over a guardrail, and landed in a park where hundreds of people were gathered. Four people were killed because of the impact.

Truck Drivers Can Suffer From Serious Injuries

When you buy something new for your home, we know that the last thing you think about is that the item will cause harm to you or your family. You certainly do not expect that it will tip over onto someone. Unfortunately, this is one of the least talked about risks associated with certain products despite being a major problem throughout the country. Today, we want to talk about tip-over incidents. 



When you leave the comfort of your home to go out and do some shopping, head to the bank, or stop by a local government office, the last thing you need to worry about it getting hurt. We know that you are a careful person, but there are times when another person's negligence can cause you harm. Slip and fall incidents are one of the most common, and most costly, injuries that can happen to someone. 



If you or your loved ones have any food allergies, then we are sure you are used to scanning every food item you buy for a list of ingredients and allergens. Unfortunately, a recent recall shows us that may not be enough. We are learning that Frito-Lay and the US Food and Drug Administration are recalling Stacy's Simply Naked Pita Chips. They say that hundreds of bags were filled with a different flavor of chip that "could expose consumers with severe milk allergies to a potential allergen."
