Lawsuit filed against San Diego motorist who killed nanny

When observing fellow motorists, it is clear that all sorts of people are on America’s roads and highways. Some people appear focused on the road, while others look to be dreamily lost in thought. A vast number of drivers are busy sneaking looks at their smart phones, while harried parents can be seen tending to children in the back seat. Commonly, teenagers rock out to thumping beats, tired folks try to catch a catnap at red lights, and commuters chow down on fast food while navigating city streets. There is no end to various driving disruptions, and it is a wonder that there are not more fatal automobile accidents each day in San Diego.

Negligence at California care facility causes elderly woman's death

California health care professionals must provide constant care to their patients, especially when caring for the elderly. For this reason, hospital administrators are required to provide adequate staffing to cover all of the patients’ needs. Unfortunately, some hospitals fail to schedule enough caregivers for each hospital shift, and they sometimes face costly wrongful death lawsuits as a result.

San Diego woman suffers dog bite injury

People often sign up for organized athletic events to motivate themselves to exercise and get in shape. The thought of not finishing a race or huffing and puffing to get to the finish line can help people focus on getting out the door for an early morning walk or run. No one expects to suffer an injury during these training routines, and a dog attack causing a serious injury can be a nightmare for an aspiring athlete.

Teenager on drugs causes fatal San Diego car crash

Whether it is due to immaturity, hormones, or a feeling of invincibility, teenagers do not always make the best decisions. People in their mid to late teens can be impulsive, and do not realize how quickly one bad decision can have serious, life-altering consequences. This is especially true when teenagers drink alcohol or take drugs and then get behind the wheel. Such conduct can result in a fatal accident, forever altering the lives of the teenager and the victim’s family.
