Video Calls: The Future Source of Car Accidents

Video calling has come a long way in the past few decades. It began in the fifties and was known as videotelephony. Between the fifties and the nineties, still images would be portrayed through projector type apparatus refreshing the image of the person on the other line every few seconds over what is known as a POTS-type telephone line connection. The technology is more akin to slow scan TV systems. Technologic evolution and the development of video codec and high bandwidth internet communication services over the past few years have helped speed up the process and the practicality of video communication.

Video telephones can now offer high quality color service amongst users worldwide via an internet connection. In many instances, video calling has become more affordable than making a long distance phone call. With the upcoming release of Windows 8, Skype, which was acquired by Microsoft will be “doubling down.”

Video communication makes over fifty percent of Skype’s 250 million connected user, up from its 170 million users from last year. While desktop usage is the strongest. There will be some changes and additions to mobile applications as well. Tony Bates, Skype President is and alleged fan of Microsoft’s Windows phone. He believes that he and his team can add great value to the phone which is people centric as is Skype.

In the cell phone industry, iPhone reigns number one for video calling usage; it is the products biggest platform. Android, another major player in the cell phone industry has a fragmented market, therefore, making it challenging for Skype to make a great impact. This makes using the Microsoft phone a great bet to increase market share.

Cell phone video communication may provide a great opportunity for Skype to increase its market share. With an increase in market share and more people on the road using cell phone video technology, the risk of car accidents may increase. That is if people view video calling technology similar to how they do texting and calling while they are driving, then there is an opportunity that more people will call their car accident lawyer.

The press release was done in Palos Verdes, California to notify people in the tech industry to watch out for the up and coming Windows 8 as well as the up and coming increase in usage of Skype and its leverage on the Microsoft cell phone. The product, Bates points out is already in use across various platforms including its inclusion in most modern televisions and the possibility of using Microsoft Kinect to increase its market share as well.

As the increase of video technology usage appears in the horizon, safety when using it on cell phones should be considered. Drivers run the opportunity of ultimately being injured in a car accident and will need compensation while they take time off from work and recover. This means that a Los Angeles car accident lawyer can help them get the compensation they need.

California’s Autonomous Future

In an effort to reduce the number of yearly highway fatalities in California, its Senate has passed a bill that will permit the use of self-driving cars on its roads. Heavy commuters and drivers who often find themselves distracted behind the wheel can breathe a little bit easier and get back to whatever they were doing while the vehicle does all the driving. It will be like having a personal chauffer who can always be up-to-date with simple software updates. With the passing of this bill roads filled with autonomous vehicles can not only make driving more safe, but more enjoyable as well.

The idea of having a driverless car has been around since the creation of the car. With the use of technology and advanced resources many organizations have made incredible strides to achieve this idea over the past few years. Experts in this field have prognosticated that in time, these true “smart” cars can navigate roads safer than humans who tend to get sleepy and distracted. As a true pioneer in this industry, Google has suited various Prius models with an array of radar, video cameras and lasers to navigate the roads safely, even through traffic.

Organizations such as Google have made an effort to convince politicians and lawmakers about the safety of these vehicles giving them a chance to ride inside them. Nevada issued the first license to an autonomous vehicle. Google was on the receiving end allowing the company to freely experiment in the state. These autonomous vehicles have been issued a red license plate with an infinity symbol – marking the car of the future. The red license plate will be used on test vehicles only and will be easily recognizable by the public and law enforcement. Other companies have applied to obtain the red plates and test their own autonomous vehicles. Once the vehicles are sold publicly, the license plate will contain the infinity symbol on a green plate.

Road inattention is what often leads to car accidents and people getting hurt or hospitalized. This can be tough situation for the families of the injured persons and can cause certain grief. A car accident lawyer can help a client navigate the tough legal and financial scenarios that arise from a crash. To reduce human error, autonomous test vehicles will be sold only as safety precaution. Those produced by Google are modified standard Prius vehicles with intricate electronics. The driver can gain control of the car at any moment by simply tapping the brakes or regaining control of the wheel.

SB1298 by State Sen. Alex Padilla (D-Pacoima) would establish guidelines that can land the futuristic vehicles in California. The bill will provide the first step of allowing vehicles to be tested and operated in California. Next month the bill will be considered by the Assembly. Taking into account that the bill passed without objection, things are looking well. When a few lawmakers test drove Google’s prototype they were convinced that this was the right direction for the state in preventing accidents even in San Bernardino. Testing the vehicle means that there could be accidents. Consider calling a San Bernardino car accident lawyer if you are hit by one of these autonomous vehicles.

Alleged Los Angeles Drunk Driver Kills 3

Nationwide Memorial Day commemorates United States soldiers who give up their lives to protect and serve the country. Tradition has it that groups of volunteers meet at grave yards and adorn the grave sites of fallen soldiers with small U.S. flags and flowers. Recognized as a national holiday, most citizens are offered to take the day off and observe it giving them the opportunity to spend it together. It is no surprise that families and friends gather at public places for picnics, attend city sponsored events or use the three day weekend to visit each other. The sight of families packed in cars on congested roads is not an aberration, nor is the fact that while Memorial Day weekend brings families together, a drunk driver can break them apart.

Sunday morning an alleged drunk driver broke someone’s family apart.

Drivers found roads closed along Mona Boulevard on 118, 119 and 120 Streets Sunday morning at about 7:00 a.m. until about 2:30 p.m. from a Cadillac SLS and Chevrolet Tahoe fatal rollover accident. Two body bags were transported to the coroner’s office, a woman was airlifted into a helicopter and a man was held in custody.

Earlier witnesses allegedly spotted a Cadillac SLS speeding southbound on Mona Boulevard; it was driven by a 32-year-old-man per California Highway Patrol. Upon approaching 119 Street it slammed into a Chevrolet Tahoe that was making a left turn northbound onto Mona. Pushing the SUV over onto its side, the SUV began to roll. The only person that remained inside after it rolled was a 3-year-old who was killed on impact.

The lifeless body of a dead eight-year-old girl and a 24-year-old woman in critical condition lay in the path of the SUV that trailed blood and car parts as well. The driver of the SLS was nowhere near the accident he had jettisoned from the scene.
A helicopter came to transport the woman to Lynwood’s St. Francis Medical Center. She was pronounced dead at the hospital. The family of the victims is in emotional distress. They did not have someone whom to share Memorial Day weekend with.

Police were able to catch the fleeing driver of the fleeing SLS. He was taken back to scene of the crash and transported to Harbor UCLA Medical Center in custody. He suffered major injuries in the crash. Awaiting his recovery, the driver faces multiple charges against the law for suspicion of hit-and-run, DUI, and possibly manslaughter.

The family of the two girls will have to contact a car accident lawyer in their area. Being under distress, they will have to deal with the financial aspect of the accident as well. A Los Angeles car accident lawyer can help them earn the compensation they deserve.

Wrong Way Driving Car Crash

Drivers slowed down in both directions of Sylmar’s 210 Freeway diverting their attention to a fire and an amorphous cloud of dark smoke that grew in the skies. Those who were close enough to the scene saw that two vehicles had caught fire. Others who’d been there at the time of the accident Thursday morning looked back through their rear view mirror and called emergency services for help and reported the accident which they had escaped.

What callers reported was a crash with a vehicle and a UPS tandem tractor-trailer at about 2:15 a.m. Both vehicles had crashed head on.

California Highway Patrol arrived to the scene of the crash westbound on the 210 east of Roxford Street in Sylmar near the city of Los Angeles. The big-rig crashed through the center divider blocking two lanes on the eastbound freeway.

The CHP team closed down the westbound section of the highway and two eastbound lanes. Vehicles heading westbound were forced to detour at an earlier exit. Vehicles on the eastbound lanes were forced to merge onto the right hand lanes.

Various sources reported a female behind the wheel of a vehicle allegedly entered the freeway through an exit she was heading eastbound when traffic was intended to head west. The near desolate freeway at the time of her entry was enough to help convince her she was heading in the right direction. Seconds later in the horizon a wave of vehicles, including a tandem UPS tractor-trailer en route to a shipping facility sped in her direction.

In an attempt to avoid the collision, the UPS vehicle tried to swerve left, but it was too late. The two vehicles had crashed at high speeds.

Fire erupted as both vehicles crashed. The UPS trailer flipped on its side and crashed through the center concrete divider lying jackknifed on the road. The vehicle that was headed in the wrong direction smashed head-on to the trailer’s left side puncturing the fuel tank.

Firefighters adroitly extinguished the fire; it was put out in less than twenty minutes when the accident had been reported. Inside the vehicle they found an unresponsive woman. Upon further examining the woman, they declared her dead at the scene. She had died in the crash.

Packages addressed to various people were scattered throughout the roadway. Some were drenched in water while others were crushed. The driver of the truck was treated by the paramedics and transported to a local hospital for injuries. The driver’s only worry would be to recover should the driver decide to contact a Los Angeles car accident lawyer. The Accident Attorney’s Group has law offices set up through Southern California and have won compensation for many of their clients.

At about five in the morning, CHP opened one westbound lane and gradually opened the rest by about 7:30 a.m.

If you or anyone you know been involved in an accident you have the right to compensations. You need a car accident lawyer who knows California laws thoroughly to win your case.

80 MPH Los Angeles Winds Knock over 50 Electric Poles

Severe California weather threatens the safety of Californians yet again; this time, in the form of powerful high speed winds. The high speed winds made their way through Los Angeles and Antelope Valley desert areas toppling electrical poles and increasing the chances of fire. These conditions pose a danger to highway travelers where the risks are more likely to increase. Driving at night in these areas require extreme caution, and if possible should be avoided.

At least fifty utility poles were toppled over by the intense gusts on Wednesday. While injuries regarding toppled utility poles have not been reported, vehicles run the extreme risk of being hit by them. Some of these poles measure upwards of two stories high and can weigh anywhere from half a ton to two. Were one of these poles to fall on a moving vehicle, its contents would be smashed. They can also fall at night when drivers are less likely to see them. The wires pose a chance electrocution on contact. There is enough voltage in the wires to severely or even kill a human.

Vehicles traveling at highway speeds at night may not have enough time to react to these falling hazards increasing the probability of a crash and cause a chain-reaction-type of accident. The National Weather Service officially reported an 80 mph gust on Whitaker Peak Mountains near Interstate-5 on Wednesday.

This weather can cause large trailers to roll over and blow smaller vehicles onto adjacent lanes. If you get into an accident, you have the right to compensation. Consider hiring a Los Angeles car accident lawyer who can represent you and help you get the settlement you deserve.

Advisories and high wind warnings were issued throughout Southern California. They went into effect Thursday morning for Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys along with the Greater Los Angeles mountainous areas, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
Fire risk increases with the immensity of the winds and the lack of humidity in the atmosphere. Santa Barbara County is mostly susceptible to these conditions. Its location makes it ideal for high winds and low humidity to combine and create a fire. Hence the posting of red flag warnings posted through the southern area of Santa Barbara County to remind people of the incendiary risks.

Repairing the fallen utility poles will not be an easy task for Southern California Edison. The last time something similar happened in a residential area it took them over a week to restore power, remove the fallen poles and replace some of them. People affected by this resorted to living in ascetic conditions while others complained. SCE said this time it should take them a matter of days to handle the situation and get it repaired and under control.

Times like these can increase the chances of someone being in an accident. You don’t know when something like this can happen to you or someone you know. If you are in any type of car accident consider calling the Accident Attorney’s Group to represent you. A car accident lawyer knows the adversity you face in times of need and can help you overcome it.

Car Crashes into Preteen Girl’s Room in Chinatown

A preteen girl was rudely awakened from her sleep in a Chinatown apartment Wednesday morning when a car crashed through her window and injured her.

The accident happened at about 6:30 a.m. on the 700 block of North Bunker Hill Avenue slightly north of West Cesar Chavez Avenue. A four door dark colored Toyota sedan crashed through the window of the modest Chinatown apartment.

The driver lost control of the sedan; it traveled across the five-foot-wide concrete sidewalk and was launched a few feet into the air after crashing against a one foot tall brick planer. Although the front windows of the apartment were protected with metal bars, the airborne vehicle traveled at least three more feet horizontally then crashed through the front window breaking through the protective metal bars and pieces of wall landing inside the apartment.

Awakened with a loud bang and the constant roaring of the engine, the preteen girl could not believe what had happened. Her room was now completely filled in dust and car parts and parts of the wall were scattered in her room and on her bed. Picture hangers and decorations fell on the floor. It wasn’t until she began to feel pain that she realized that what had happened was not a dream.
Paramedics responded to the accident and transported the girl to a local hospital, where she will be treated for minor injuries.

The girl’s bed that was next to the wall that was hit will have to be replaced. It was drenched in radiator coolant fluid. So will the wall and the window.

Authorities have identified the person who was driving the vehicle but have not released his name. He had lost control of the sedan for no apparent reason and crashed at an allegedly high speed. There were no signs of the man being intoxicated at the time of the crash. He did not suffer injuries.

Cleanup crews have made plans to remove the vehicle from the apartment. They are thinking of dislodging the vehicle by towing it. A high strength cable connected to the rear of a pulling apparatus on the tow truck will be attached to the vehicle which landed hood first into the wall. Then by turning on the apparatus and towing with the truck can the vehicle be dislodged.

A car can unexpectedly lose control and run into your Los Angeles apartment or home. In that case you need support, a Los Angeles car accident lawyer can help. You deserve the right to compensation and someone who understands what you are going through. Contact the Accident Attorney’s Group who has many years of experience in the field of law.

The crash happened at Specialty Car Craft on the 1800 block of South La Cienega Boulevard. The passenger had allegedly hired a professional transportation service to drive her around. Various news publications describe the vehicle as part of a taxi or limousine service. The vehicle was a black Lincoln Town Car sedan.

The Lincoln went over the concrete sidewalk and crashed through a large display window and into a brick support wall. The driver allegedly fled the scene on foot immediately after the crash and left the passenger in the vehicle. Emergency services drove her away in an ambulance and transported her to a local hospital with critical injuries.

Apart to the store front, many Exotic vehicles were damaged in the crash. The shop owner estimates that his shop and vehicles incurred about $200,000 in damage. The shop has about fifty luxury cars in the showroom. The cars that were damaged were near the display window facing the street. These cars include: a TVR Tuscan S (of which there is one in the United States), a yellow 2009 Ferrari F430 Spider with a decal that reads “Baller 24” (Lakers basketball player Kobe Bryant’s number) – the shop owner would not say who the owner of that vehicle was, – and a red Lamborghini.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has determined that there is not enough evidence to pin Lohan to the accident. Attempting to escape the paparazzi, Lohan had allegedly struck Hollywood’s Hookah Lounge manager with her sports car as she was leaving the lounge’s parking lot March 14, 2012.

Allegedly, the lounge manager Thaer Kamal contacted authorities but refused medical treatment at the scene and told police Lohan’s Porsche had grazed his right leg. According to various sources Kamal refused to cooperate with follow-up interviews with authorities until two weeks after the accident. He arrived with a bandage around his left knee, opposite to the one which he’d reported injured the first time.

Deputy District Attorney John Gilligan said there was no direct evidence to link neither Lohan nor anyone else to Kamal’s injury.
