The pros and cons of truck accident settlements

Truck accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and major vehicle damage, so it's important for victims to get the maximum amount of compensation possible. In California, victims can choose between going through a civil trial, which can be a prolonged and costly process, and trying for an informal settlement. Settling out of court can not only save time and money but also increase the chance of an amicable agreement.

AI technology may have prevented Uber crash

Autonomous vehicles are marketed as being able to operate without the assistance of a human driver. For example, California-based Waymo made a commercial that showed passengers taking selfies in the back seat of its self-driving minivan. However, autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles still require the watchful eye of a driver in order to prevent accidents. This became clear when an Uber self-driving car struck and killed a pedestrian in March.

Driving while distracted

California drivers who engage in any activity that diverts their attention from the road are referred to as distracted drivers. Texting or talking on the phone, conversing with other people in the vehicle, adjusting the navigation systems or radio are all activities that can draw a person's full attention from the road and his or her driving.

Social media and your personal injury claim

The accident left you injured and suffering. You spent much of your time in bed until your family coaxed you outside for a picnic with some friends. Your dad told a joke, and you laughed, and since it was the first time you had laughed since the accident, someone snapped a picture and posted it on your Facebook wall. Could that picture damage your personal injury claim?

Professor suggests improvements in autonomous car design

California motorists who are interested in the development of self-driving cars may be aware of a fatality that occurred in March when an autonomous Uber vehicle killed a pedestrian. Video footage from the accident shows the pedestrian stepped into a dark section of road where there was not a pedestrian crosswalk. Although the Tempe, Arizona, police chief says the car was probably not at fault, a professor who works on designing similar types of systems disagrees.
