What exactly is a third-party lawsuit?

If you are involved in an accident at work, you can most likely make a claim for workers’ compensation. Employers have a duty to provide compensation for legitimate work accident claims, and to correct any lapses in safety that may have contributed to the accident.

But what if the accident wasn’t actually your employer’s fault?

Study concludes drivers distracted by daydreams more than phones

A monotonous daily commute or scenic drive in California both have the potential to lull drivers into a state of daydreaming. Wandering thoughts take attention off of the road, and a distracted driving study from Erie Insurance cites daydreaming as the top source of distraction. After the researchers studied 172,000 traffic deaths stored in a national database of car accidents, they found that over a five-year period, distracted driving killed 10 percent of motor vehicle accident victims.

Among those deaths, the database attributed 61 percent of them to daydreaming drivers. Only 14 percent of that segment of fatality records showed cellphone use as the underlying cause. The insurance company reported that these results have been consistent for years.

What can be drawn from the fatal Tesla crash?

At the beginning of 2018, the prospect of having self-driving cars on Southern California roads  appeared to be a foregone conclusion. The only questions surrounded how soon and how many vehicles would be jockeying for position in traffic on I-405, I-10 and other busy highways.

Also contributing to the swath of optimism was the fact that Tesla was primed to introduce the Model 3, the first “affordable” offering from the zero-emission automaker. The Model 3 would join its popular luxury models, the Tesla Model X and Model S. The popular “auto pilot” function would be an available option on the Model 3, and consumers were lining up to put deposits down on the upcoming car.

Will lane splitting be legal outside of California soon?

There are pros and cons to riding a motorcycle. Most riders know this before ever taking their first ride. While there are unique factors from exposure to the open road, the biggest danger comes from other drivers who share that road.

Knowing these facts is important, but more drivers are aware of motorcycles in 2018. For all of the attention given to motorcycle accidents in the LA area, there are just as many benefits to riding on two wheels instead of four. Besides the thrill of open air, motorcycles are more efficient and more agile in heavy California traffic.

How insurance companies are designed to prosper at your expense

Insurance agencies are like any other company built on profits. The main objective is to increase revenue and reduce money leaks. How these profits are grown and retained is where you as a consumer should beware.

While you need auto insurance as part of your legal compliance when owning and driving a vehicle, you don’t need to be fooled and short-changed after an accident. Unfortunately, this happens more often than not. Most insurance companies are inclined to do what is in their best interest as a company, not what is fair to you-- the customer.
