Car Accidents Archives

Missing out on pastimes following a collision

There are certain car crash consequences and facets of the recovery process that receive a lot of attention, such as broken bones and gaining access to compensation one needs. However, it is essential to bear in mind that these accidents can result in many other troubles that upend a victim’s life. For example, you may not be able to participate in certain pastimes if you sustain an injury in a motor vehicle wreck and our law firm is aware of how upsetting this can be for victims and their friends and family members.

Motor vehicle crashes and Halloween

Recently, many people across the country took part in Halloween celebrations. Some went trick-or-treating with their kids, while others attended parties and haunted houses. Unfortunately, some people found themselves in motor vehicle collisions that resulted in serious injuries. Worse, there are certain times of year, such as on holidays, when the likelihood of a fatal accident is even greater. We know the pain and devastation that these collisions cause for victims and those close to them. As a result, you should explore all of your options if you were hurt in an auto accident on Halloween or any other time of year, for that matter.

Eyesight and motor vehicle accidents

Our law firm knows how dangerous it can be to ride in a vehicle, especially with all of the negligent drivers on the roads. However, there are things to watch out for in addition to alcohol consumption, speeding, icy roads, and other risks. For example, we know that poor eyesight or anything that obstructs a driver's vision could lead to a collision. If you were hurt in a crash that happened because a driver was unable to see the road correctly, or for any other reason, you should review your legal rights instantly and ensure that the aftermath of the wreck is approached with care.

Drawing a connection between spiders and car crashes

Many Americans recognize that car accidents take place due to intoxicated driving or roads that are covered in ice. With that said, you should be aware that these wrecks can happen for all sorts of other reasons, some of which might not even be taken seriously by certain people. For example, someone with arachnophobia might be responsible for causing an accident after they notice a spider in their vehicle. Moreover, news reports have covered car accidents which have been blamed on spiders in recent months and the consequences of these crashes can be just as serious.

Where do most deadly rollover crashes take place?

When it comes to traffic collisions, there are many risks to keep in mind. Sometimes, people lose their lives because of drunk drivers, while others pass away in accidents that happened as a result of ice on the road. Sadly, rollover accidents can be particularly perilous and these accidents have claimed many lives over the years. If you are worried about the likelihood of a fatal rollover accident, you may find value in going over some of the characteristics of these tragic accidents.

Changing careers after an accident

If a car accident has recently turned your life upside down, you could be going through various challenges. On the one hand, you could be having a hard time with medical expenses or physical pain. Or, perhaps you lost a loved one in the crash. Our firm has also seen how people in Orange County and across California may have their lives thrown off course after a crash due to a permanent disability. In some cases, these lifelong disabilities may leave victims unable to return to their previous line of work.

Auto accidents and flu season

People are often aware of many of the factors that lead to an auto collision, such as drunk driving or going over the speed limit. In Orange County, and other counties across the state of California, there are other potential problems that can result in a crash. For example, people who have become sick due to the flu may have a greater chance of causing a traffic collision. With the approach of flu season, it is critical to be mindful of this threat and avoid driving if you think you are too sick to safely take to the road.

What are some fall weather hazards?

Traffic accidents have many causes, such as bad signage, speeding, texting while driving, driving under the influence, and more. However, it is essential for all drivers to remember that poor weather can cause crashes too. In parts of Orange County, and across California, some people may feel as if they are fortunate to avoid certain weather issues that are more prevalent in other areas, such as heavy snowfall and icy roads. However, there are numerous weather-related threats that can cause a crash during the fall.

Drunk driving and Labor Day

With Labor Day weekend quickly approaching, you might be looking forward to family celebrations or some other holiday-related event. Many people choose to drink alcohol during the holiday weekend, but some make the poor decision to operate a vehicle when they are over the legal limit. Drunk driving is a serious threat throughout the year, but the likelihood of being involved in a crash may be even greater during certain holidays. At Callahan & Blaine, we know how devastating drunk driving wrecks can be for victims and those they love in Orange County, and across California.

How do rollover accidents occur?

From head-on crashes to large truck accidents, traffic collisions take different forms. However, some people are injured or lose their lives in rollover accidents. Those who have been involved in a rollover accident may deal with many hardships, from physical pain and injuries to lost wages and mental trauma. Moreover, families may mourn the loss of their loved one following these often-dangerous wrecks. As a result, it is pivotal to go over some of the different ways these accidents take place. Drivers should be aware of all of the threats they face before getting behind the wheel and focus on traffic safety.
