Dog Crashes Truck into House

Redding, California experienced something new on Wednesday afternoon: a dog accelerated a truck into a house.

The dog was seated in the front seat of the truck originally. Apparently he felt the need to use the bathroom, and could not wait for his driver to stop. He began his business on the center consul but his foot slipped. The dog then fell down near the driver’s feet and he pushed down on the accelerator.

The driver attempted to halt the vehicle but he failed, and the truck smashed into a house.

According to a neighbor, the driver claimed that he had the brake pedal all the way to the floor, but could not stop.

No one in the house or the truck was injured. The same neighbor explains that the boys were out of the house at the time, which is fortunate because they may have been at risk for injuries.

The neighborhood seems to understand that it was an accident and are just all thankful that no one was hurt.

The accident occurred at Bobwhite Way and Partridge Drive around 2 p.m.

This crash seems humorous because it was caused by a dog, but accidents like this can lead to much more serious consequences. Vehicular collisions are destructive enough, but having one go through a house can damage much more than property. Thankfully in this instance, there were no fatalities or injuries.

If you or someone you know has been in a collision, whether it was caused by dog or human, contact a northern California accident lawyer today.

On Wednesday afternoon in Ramona, California, a new teen driver caused an accident that involved three vehicles and one police officer. All those involved in the accident were taken to the hospital with injuries.

The teen driver was on the eastbound side of the State Route 78 in a 2011 Ford Fusion. She then rear-ended a 61-year-old driver in a 2006 Chevrolet HHR who was stopped to make a left turn on Earlham Street.

The station wagon was then pushed into the intersection and hit a Chula Vista police officer who was riding his bike off duty. The officer was airlifted to the hospital after the crash caused him to fall from his bike and roll around the road; and the other two drivers were taken by ambulance to a doctor.

It has been reported that the officer suffered severe trauma and is critical condition. The teenager and the other driver are being treated for moderately serious injuries.

Upon investigation of the accident, law enforcement has found evidence that suggests the young woman was texting right before the collision. Texting while driving is against the law; and when they complete their investigation, she could face charges.

The State Route 78 was closed in an area for a while near Ramona Community Park.

Currently 41 out of 50 states ban texting while driving; and when the action causing accidents and injuries, the penalties become more serious.

Chris Brown Facing Charges after Minor Accident

The R&B singer Chris Brown risked violating his probation last week when he hit another vehicle in Los Angeles. According to reports, Brown may not have given accurate insurance information to the other driver; and if that is true, he could be sentenced to jail.

On May 21, Brown’s Range Rover bumped into a Mercedes-Benz. There was no real damage to either car; however, common procedure is to exchange insurance and identification information. According to the other driver, Brown was very reluctant to give her the information and then the information that she finally obtained may have been false.

Brown is still on probation after assaulting his girlfriend Rihanna in 2009; and providing false insurance information violates that probation. Brown claims that the information was valid and that the other driver’s statements are incorrect. His attorneys have attempted to contact the victim of the accident, but they have not had much luck.

If Brown is found guilty in this matter, he can serve four years in jail. Though the accident was only minor and no real damage was done, his unwillingness to oblige may create severe consequences.

This is not the first time that Brown’s information lacked credibility or truth. He was required to serve time in community labor after the previously mentioned assault; and though he stated that it had been completed, there were no records of his attendance.

Car accidents can cause serious damage or minor dents; but either way, all of those involved must follow proper procedure. Driving without proper insurance or a valid I.D. is illegal. In this instance, the other driver did not experience serious damage to her car or herself; but in accidents that do demand reparation, dealing with insured drivers is much easier.

If you or someone you know has been in an accident and needs information, contact the Accident Attorneys’ Group. Whether you are an uninsured driver or were hit by one, our lawyers can help you file the appropriate paperwork that will assist you in receiving the highest possible compensation available.

A fatal car accident has been officially cleared off of the road early this morning. The scene included a burnt car split in half and dead bodies.

In Newport Beach on Monday afternoon, a car carrying five passengers struck a tree and then proceeded to split in two and catch fire. All passengers have been declared dead.

The Infiniti crashed on Jamboree Road and Island Lagoon Drive. Upon impact, four out of the five travelers were ejected from the vehicle and died on site; however, one passenger was found only partially ejected and was taken to a hospital by ambulance. The injuries were too grave, though and the fifth passenger died before reaching a doctor.

The passengers have yet to be identified; however, it has been reported that they are five teenagers from the Irvine area. There were three women and two men involved in the accident.

The accident did not include any other vehicles and the cause is still being investigated. At this point, it is unknown whether speed or alcohol was a factor in the crash; but every possibility is being explored.

The scene was officially cleared at 3:50 a.m. this morning.

This accident has been named the worst that has been seen by officers. Fatal accidents are always tragic, but ones that involve so many victims and those that are so young are especially unfortunate.

If you or someone you know has been in an accident, contact an injury lawyer in order to make your first step toward recovery.

A big rig and another vehicle crashed into each other today, creating a massive traffic jam for this morning’s commuters. Though no injuries were reported, the accident was certainly serious.

The big rig that was hit was carrying 700 gallons of fuel. When the second vehicle collided with the truck, the entirety of that fuel spilled over the freeway. The spill spread across two miles of highway and consequently blocked three lanes of traffic on the northbound 405.

The accident occurred in West Los Angeles, around Waterford Street and Sepulveda Boulevard in Brentwood. In addition to the lane blockage at Montana Street, the onramps of Santa Monica Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard were closed for hours after the accident.

Around 6:00 a.m. the collision occurred. The onramps and lanes were expected to be reopened fully at about 8:30 a.m. as stated by California Highway Patrol.

No injuries have been reported from the accident; however, traffic was hellish. It is important to be vigilant if you are found in situations like these as heavy traffic can create additional collisions.

Accidents are scary and inconvenient no matter how minor they are. Whether you or a passenger suffered major injuries or simply your car received a few dents, there are many steps that you must take to right each infraction. To ensure that you are completing each task correctly and receiving the best possible compensation, recruit a member of the Accident Attorneys’ Group. He/she will work with you to file claims, to find medical assistance and to receive appropriate repayment for the damages suffered.

$5 Million Settlement due to McDonald’s Burger

In January 2012, a sheriff’s deputy caused an injurious accident in Santa Clara County that has now cost him $5 million to settle. And it all occurred because of a hamburger.

Deputy Greg Markovic crashed into Diem Van Lam’s 1994 Honda around 4 a.m. on January 9th. According to the report, Markovic was eating a McDonald’s hamburger and took his eyes off of the road due to its distraction.

The accident occurred after the deputy bit into his burger, put it back down, reached for his radio (which got stuck), turned on his rear amber warning lights by accident, looked down to correct the mistake, and then he hit Van Lam’s vehicle on the driver’s side. There is also speculation that the sheriff may have run a red light before impact.

Markovic survived the accident without any real injury, but Van Lam suffered a skull fracture, torn aorta, and broken ribs.

The deputy is no longer on patrol due to a “permanent disability” that he attained after a child rescue mission of another accident.

The claim was brought to the sheriff after the accident and both parties have now agreed on a settlement of $5 million dollars.

Being distracted while driving causes most of the accidents that drivers face. Perhaps your accident was/will not be caused by a fast food hamburger, but distractions come in many forms and they can all be destructive. If you or someone you know has been in an accident, contact the Accident Attorneys’ Group for a free consultation and essential information that will help you move forward.

Big Rig Crash in Bakersfield

English: In , USA

English: In , USA (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Two Wisconsin men were involved in an accident on Monday in Bakersfield, California. The driver apparently was enduring a coughing fit when the truck crashed into a canal.

The 37-year-old driver was en route in his semitruck with a passenger resting in the sleeping compartment southbound on Highway 99. He began coughing and his truck veered off of the road. His distraction prevented him from the stopping the movements.

The truck moved across lanes and then crashed into guardrails, down an embankment and into an irrigation canal. The mess took hours to clear.

Traffic was backed up for a large portion of the day as CHP cleared the wreck. Paramedics also arrived on the scene; the driver suffered minor injuries and his passenger was killed in the accident.

The passenger has been identified as Keith Michael Zeamer from De Pere, Wisconsin. His body was found submerged under parts of the cab that had gone underwater.

This accident is very unfortunate for everyone involved. Thankfully the truck did not hit any other cars as it traveled across the lanes; however, it is distressing that the crash still caused a fatality.

Driving while distracted is incredibly dangerous, no matter what the distraction is. It impairs visibility, judgment and reactions. If you find yourself in a situation where you are or will be distracted, take caution to avoid an accident; like pulling over until you’re safe to drive once more.

If you or someone you know has been in an accident, no matter the cause, contact a car accident attorney today. Hiring a lawyer ensures that your claims are all filed correctly and your compensation is competitive.

Settlement with Edison for 2007 Malibu Fires Totaling $37 Million

Malibu Fires

In 2007, Malibu was among the Southern California cities that experienced the destructive wildfire; and now the city is receiving some compensation from a negligent party. Southern California Edison has agreed to pay $37 million to the state and city to repair the damages that its mistake caused.

According to the settlement agreement, Edison admits blame because it did not take “prompt action to prevent telecommunications company NextG from attaching fiber optic cable to joint poles in Malibu Canyon” after learning the dangers of doing nothing. This caused the poles to exceed state-mandated safety limits for weight.

The overweight pole was one of the three that failed by snapping and starting the fire. The fire then spread across the canyon, burning over 3,800 acres in October.

The case originally asked for $49 million, but the plaintiffs are happy with the outcome still. The settlement equaled 75 percent of the asking amount and will be sufficient in use of reparations. Edison will pay $20 million to the State of California’s General Fund and $17 million will fund pole loading assessments and resulting remediation work in Malibu.

This is great news for Los Angeles County and the state of California. The wild fires destroyed a lot of land and structures in 2007, and this money will aid greatly in the restoration of the area.

Losing property from a fire can be terribly traumatic and then very confusing. It is difficult to know what to do next and how to file paperwork correctly to ensure that everything is recovered. For property damage, accidents, injuries, etc. having an attorney is incredibly helpful. Contact an accident lawyer today to get the support that you need for your case.
