Steps to take if you get into a crash with your baby in the back

Parenting a new baby isn't easy, even if you have already raised a few children. Things change rapidly, and products or toys that were safe a few years ago may now no longer be appropriate for small babies given issues with product failure or a recall.

You have to plan for everything, from snacks when you go to the park to a spare set of clothing for your infant when you head to the store just in case they soil themselves. Traveling in a vehicle can seem like one of the simplest and safest things, as baby car seats have design features intended to help your little one arrive safely at your destination.

Roger Dreyer and Anthony Garilli Prevail In Limitation of Liability Action (LOLA)

On February 25, 2019, Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood and Campora attorneys Roger Dreyer and Anthony Garilli won at trial against a vessel operator and Marina who negligently sent a rental party out on Lake Tahoe without adequate safety warnings.

The case was tried in federal court in what is known as a Limitation of Liability Action, or LOLA, due to the vessel owners' attempt to take advantage of an antiquated 1851 federal statute that allows a vessel owner to attempt to limit the victims' recovery to value of the vessel and its cargo. 

A light rail accident in Sacramento leaves 27 injured

A crash between two Sacramento Regional Transit (SRT) train cars resulted in the derailment of both of them on the evening of August 22. The mass casualty incident occurred just before 9:43 p.m. nearby the intersection of Marconi Avenue and Roseville Road. It resulted in over 27 people's injuries.

The Sacramento Fire Department (SFD) was first to respond to the scene. It's upon their arrival there that they found out that the SRT's maintenance train and a light rail passenger car had collided with each other. The 40 or more SFD firefighters who were summoned to the scene identified 27 individuals that had been injured in the crash.

You can sue your landlord for injuries on their property

Each day across Sacramento, many tenants come and go from their rented homes or offices. Many do so without incident. Others aren't so lucky. They trip on raised or cracked pavement, fall on stairs, get burned in a fire or fall victim to a waiting assailant hiding in the bushes. These are just some reasons why renters get hurt on landlords' premises. If such an event has happened to you, then you may be able to sue your landlord.

Landlords are responsible for making sure that the property that you rent from them is adequately maintained and reasonably safe. If a particular flaw with the building envelope or their premises is brought up with them, then it's their responsibility to fix it. They should regularly assess their property on their own to see if needs repairs as well. If they fail to address flaws pointed out to them or ones they find on their own, then they can be sued if someone gets hurt.

When can family members file a wrongful death lawsuit in CA?

Accidental deaths happen every day in California. Some people die because of motor vehicle collisions, while others can suffer fatal injuries in their own homes or at their place of work. Regardless of the location of the accident, it can be very difficult for family members to cope with the consequences of an accidental death.

Losing someone unexpectedly creates a lot of emotions that can be quite difficult to process. This is particularly true in scenarios where the last conversation someone had with their deceased loved one was intense or negative. Even if you hugged your loved one and said goodbye the last time you saw them, you may have unresolved emotions or things you still wish you could say to them.
