Who pays your medical bills after a personal injury accident?

Many Californians suffer personal injuries every day. Examples of these personal injuries include dog bites, slips-and-falls, car accidents and fatal accidents. You may face physical, emotional and financial burdens after such an accident. If you sustained an injury due to someone's negligence, you might seek compensation.

How liability cases are tried in California

California consumer protection laws allow an individual to take action against the manufacturer of a defective or harmful product. State law requires that an individual file a personal injury claim before two years after the accident takes place. The plaintiff has three years to file a property damage claim. A statute of repose may be in effect if property damage or bodily injury was caused by an improvement to real property.

Trucking safety regulations face federal rollback

Drivers in California may have even more reasons to be wary on the roads if the federal Department of Transportation (DOT) moves forward with reported plans to roll back regulations limiting truckers' hours of service. Truck driver fatigue is linked to an increase in truck accidents, which can be especially devastating to others on the road. Because of the size and weight of large trucks, the occupants of smaller passenger vehicles are far more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries or even fatalities in a crash.

Tesla autopilot feature may create dangers

Consumer Reports tested Tesla's autopilot navigation technology and said the feature raises safety concerns. Navigate on Autopilot, which was first released by Tesla during 2018, created new risks for drivers and performed worse than humans. California motorists should be aware of the risks that some new motor vehicle safety technologies create. The Navigate on Autopilot feature must be turned on by the driver to be functional. When it's on, the vehicle will automatically switch between traffic lanes.

Most Americans don't trust self-driving cars

US traffic fatalities have topped 40,000 for the last three years in a row. While this is alarming, a new study finds that the vast majority of people in California and across the country aren't ready to turn to autonomous vehicles for help. In fact, more Americans are afraid of self-driving vehicles than ever before.
