Personal Injury Statutes of Limitations in California

Statutes of limitations are put in place to prevent fraudulent claims and opportunistic filings against defendants. While these laws do help keep our civil justice system efficient and fair, they can also provide a narrow window for many legitimate injury victims who, for a number of reasons, were delayed from taking legal action following their accident.

Chris Brown & Event Venue Slammed with Premises Liability Lawsuit

Earlier this year on January 11th, Chris Brown held an event at Fiesta Nightclub in San Jose. Tickets for this "VIP birthday party" held in honor of Brown's manager ran between $50 and $2,500. During the exclusive event, gunshots broke out. One young man suffered a gunshot wound to his foot that allegedly caused permanent nerve damage, traumatic stress, and other damages. As a result, he is bringing forward a lawsuit against Chris Brown and the event venue.

5 Most Dangerous Intersections for Pedestrians in San Francisco

According to data from the San Francisco Police Department's Park Station, there are certain streets and intersections around the city that are known to be extra dangerous for pedestrians.

Stay Safe While Camping This Summer

One of the most wonderful things about living in Northern California is the wealth of beautiful natural resources that surround us, and especially the trees and wilderness on our doorstep. Whether you go north, south, or east, numerous opportunities to spend time outside are available to you. Especially if you are camping in the San Francisco area, it is important to remember some ways to stay safe and prevent a personal injury while outdoors.

California's "Comparative Negligence"

Sometimes the circumstances of an accident are complex and the matter of assigning fault is not simply a matter of identifying a single party. In asserting the details of an accident, you might find that multiple parties had a hand in causing it--or that you, the injured victim, also contributed. In these cases, how is fault assigned? Can you still pursue compensation even if you were partially responsible for the circumstances that harmed you?

Five Ways To Stay Safe This Fourth of July

Summer is in full swing, and Fourth of July weekend is right around the corner. But while the upcoming holiday is great for grilling with friends, hanging out at the beach, watching fireworks or sailing in the San Francisco Bay, it's also important to be safe. This holiday has notoriously high accident rates, so it's a good idea to take some precautions in order to avoid car crashes, fireworks mishaps or other injuries.

San Jose Has A 911 Problem-Emergency Response Times Fall Woefully Short

Like airbags or helmets, emergency medical help is something you might not give much thought to until you desperately need it. But if you live in San Jose, it's time to start paying attention, because the city's emergency response times are lagging well behind the national average and no one seems to be doing anything to stop it.

Sleep Deprivation or Fatigue Can Cause Catastrophic Injury or Death

Pilots are limited by law to flying a set number of hours weekly. Truck drivers are similarly regulated. The reason: the potential of falling asleep at their jobs places the lives of others in jeopardy. Here in the Bay Area, Silicon Valley workers often find themselves in an environment where they are responding to emails or texts from their employers at all hours of the day and night, trying to keep up with the demands of their job. These unrealistic expectations result in many employees working late and driving home, sometimes just to work more there. This is a recipe for disaster.
