Charges reversed against some drivers after recall

California drivers may have heard about a recall issued by General Motors in February 2014 due to a faulty ignition switch. Reports say that the company knew about the fault for around 10 years prior to the recall, and some people were convicted in fatal motor vehicle accidents that they now say were not their fault. Several guilty pleas have been overturned as a result of the new evidence.

Injury symptoms to watch out for after a crash

California residents who have been in one know that that a car accident takes seconds but can have significant consequences. Sometimes, after what seems like a harmless accident, symptoms can appear that can indicate a more complicated issue resulting from an unseen injury during the collision. There are some symptoms that should not be ignored in order to prevent further complications and to seek appropriate treatment.

Obligations of a bus company in a crash

California residents who are injured in bus accidents may wonder who should be held responsible. Since a bus is an example of a vehicle known as a common carrier, it is held to a high standard of responsibility for its passengers. Any vehicle that is supposed to transfer people or goods for money is a common carrier. Tour buses, school buses and commercial buses are all designated as common carriers.

Research links Uber to DUI fatality drop

Many people have been making extensive use of ride-sharing services such as Uber in recent years, and a recent study suggests that this is contributing to a drop in fatal accidents related to drunk driving. Researchers at Temple University reached this conclusion by examining data gathered in California between 2009 and 2014. The information found in this time frame correlates Uber's emergence with a drop in such fatal collisions, validating previous studies released from within the ride-sharing industry.
