Merced County Truck Accident Fatally Injures Three

I’m Ed Smith, a Merced truck accident attorney. A grandmother and her two grandchildren were left with fatal injuries after a truck accident near Los Banos on July 17, 2018. At approximately 1:55 in the morning, a 56-year-old Ontario man was driving a 2011 Freightliner northbound along Interstate 5 in the vicinity of Taglio Road. For unknown reasons, the trucker failed to stop in time as traffic slowed near an unrelated crash and rear-ended a 2012 Dodge Caravan. The impact reportedly propelled the Dodge into the center median, causing three of the five parties inside to succumb to their injuries at the scene.

I would like to send my sincere thoughts and prayers to those grieving the loss of their loved ones during this heart-wrenching time.

Top Ways to Keep Pedestrians Safe in North Highlands

I’m Ed Smith, a North Highlands personal injury lawyer. Pedestrians in California, as elsewhere, find themselves in a precarious position as more of them each year are killed or injured by negligent motorists. Although the numbers in California actually fell in 2017 due to increased safety measures and education, the state is still a long way from making it safe for walkers. If everyone would do their part, motorists and pedestrians alike, it could bring the number of accident injuries and deaths down much further.

Demolition Accidents: Construction in Reverse

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. Demolition is the process of tearing down a structure or a part of a structure in a controlled manner. It involves the use of a variety of equipment including bulldozers, excavators, cranes, wrecking balls, rotational hydraulic shears, and many more. Depending on the requirements, a structure could be taken down piecemeal, knocked down completely using a wrecking ball or a high reach arm, or blasted using explosives. Irrespective of the method employed, demolition is an inherently risky activity where even the slightest of missteps could have serious consequences.

Career Drivers Can Have Problems with Fatigue

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton Personal Injury Lawyer. Many people drive for a living, whether it is driving trucks, taxis or buses. Unfortunately, this can be a stressful career, particularly when people are forced to drive for hours on end. There are numerous health complications which can arise when people drive for extended periods of time. They include:

  • Blood Clots: While chest trauma and cardiac contusions are common ways that might trigger a blood clot, people might develop these dangerous health complications just by driving for long hours. When people sit still for an extended period of time, their blood can start to pool in their lower extremities, leading to blood clots that form in the deep veins of the legs. If the blood clots move from the veins to the rest of the body, they can cause a heart attack, a stroke, or even a pulmonary embolism. These are serious complications which could lead to wrongful death.

I’m Ed Smith, a Citrus Heights car accident lawyer.  Five vehicles were involved in a collision on July 17 along Interstate 80 westbound close to Citrus Heights that resulted in a big traffic jam. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), one of the vehicles overturned. This may have contributed to the length of time that it took to clear the roadway. It was reported that there were no life-threatening injuries, but one driver was transported to a nearby hospital as a precautionary measure.
