Safety tips for driving after dark

Driving at night or when visibility is low can lead to serious and sometimes life-threatening collisions.  That’s why California motorists must take caution when driving at night, which can be accomplished by using the following safety tips.

Tips on preventing medication errors

Doctors in California and all over the country frequently prescribe medications to patients to treat a range of illnesses. These treatments are only effective when the medicine being prescribed is done so in an accurate manner. Should a medication error occur, patients can become gravely ill, and some may even die as a result of the medical mistake.

Impaired driving is a frequent cause of death for motorists

Losing a loved one is never easy. However, losing a loved one to another person’s negligence behind the wheel can be a devastating experience, especially when impairment due to drugs or alcohol is a factor. Here at Callahan & Blaine, we’ve seen the damage caused to California families by the carelessness of an inebriated driver. Effects can range from emotional to financial, especially when the deceased loved one was your family’s primary breadwinner.

The dangers of defective medical devices

Patients in California trust in the health care community to offer safe and effective treatments, which sometimes come in the form of medical devices. However, one such device known as transvaginal mesh has been shown to cause serious injuries to women undergoing the procedure. At Callahan & Blaine we've seen firsthand the damage that can result from defective medical devices, from the need for further surgery to loss of life in severe cases.

Boating fatalities highlight the importance of safety procedures

Temperate California weather means that many recreational boaters will be out in droves this upcoming season. While boating can be a fun and thrilling activity, serious accidents can occur if the proper safety procedures are not followed. In some cases, boating accidents may even lead to death, according to the American Boating Association.

Ongoing gas leak implicated in California woman’s death

While gas leaks have the potential to be devastating should an explosion occur, they can also prove harmful in other ways. This was evident in the recent wrongful death suit filed by a California woman’s family after a months’ long gas leak was implicated in her death.

What are the basics of wrongful death claims in California?

Losing a loved one can be extremely difficult, especially when it occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence. California law does enable you to seek damages for your losses through pursuing a wrongful death claim. When doing so, you should be familiar with when and how to go about filing the lawsuit.

Potentially dangerous guardrails under study for injury risks

When it comes to liability for personal injury, wrongful death and survival actions, under some circumstances it is not only individuals and companies that can be held accountable but also the state of California itself. This potential liability exposure is the subject of an ongoing review by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) of guardrails that have been installed in this state which have been found to be potentially defective in another state.

Unusual circumstances in fatal car crash on California road

A fatal accident resulting in the loss of a loved one takes a toll on the family of the victim. Unlike a death caused by a serious illness, families do not have time to prepare themselves and say their goodbyes when a family member dies suddenly in an accident. It only adds to the tragedy when the accident is caused by a driver who might have been intoxicated.
