Keeping California safe for everyone

Most injuries in California happen in the home, but have you ever stopped to consider the root cause behind this fact? You might be surprised to know that the answer is associated with one of our core values here at the Law Offices of C. Ray Carlson: Nuturing a safe and lawful community. We feel proud of the fact that, by holding business and property owners accountable for their negligent practices, we have a hand in creating safer public spaces.

We believe that the laws governing injury liability are there for a reason: to protect people's health. For example, you deserve the same level of safety in a public pool as you would in your own bathtub, if not more. If one of our clients were injured in a slip and fall accident at a pool due to negligence or unsafe practices, then our efforts to obtain the absolute maximum recompense might send a message of the importance of safety to other pool owners.

Making a personal injury claim? Answer these questions

If you are injured in any type of accident, such as a slip-and-fall or one in your motor vehicle, you need to turn your immediate attention to your health and well-being.

As you receive the treatment you require and focus on making a full recovery, you'll also want to understand the ins and outs of making a personal injury claim.

LA car accident: 4 defendants, 1 lesson

A car accident out of Los Angeles, California is moving forward with four different defendants. The case involves an actress who was riding in an Uber at the time of the crash.

Who is involved in this accident? Actress Anabelle Acosta, who had a role in the first season of Quantico, is pursuing a lawsuit against four different parties connected to the crash.

There are many tests to help diagnose a spinal cord injury

If you are part of a motor vehicle accident, there is no denying the fact that you will be shaken up. While this is normal, you don't want to let it cloud your judgment. For example, you need to receive immediate medical attention.

Remember this: Not all spinal cord injuries present symptoms right away. There is a chance that it could take some time to realize that something is wrong.

Tips for avoiding a rush hour traffic accident

Just the same as millions of other drivers, you may find yourself caught up in rush hour traffic every day of your life. This may not be the ideal situation, but you know it's something you have to do.

It's up to you to do whatever it takes to avoid a rush hour traffic accident. Even if your vehicle is moving at a slow rate of speed, there's still a chance you could suffer a serious injury in a collision.

A concussion can have a long-term impact on your health

You never want to suffer any type of injury, but this is particularly true when it comes to your head and brain. A concussion, for example, can have a negative impact on your health in both the short and long term.

There are many causes of a concussion, such as being part of a motor vehicle accident. If you have any reason to believe that you're dealing with a head injury, it's important to receive immediate medical attention. Remember this: Even the most serious brain injuries don't always present symptoms right away.

Who is liable after a commercial truck accident?

Any time that car accident involves a large commercial vehicle, there exists the potential for severe personal injury and property damage. Large trucks have the capacity for great destruction, and those who suffer injuries in such accidents may face difficulty determining who holds liability for their injuries and losses.

Especially as we move into the holiday season, increasing the numbers of vehicles on the road, greater congestion and more dangerous winter driving conditions mean an increase in accidents involving commercial vehicles. Unfortunately, even when the commercial vehicle itself or the driver causes the accident, it is not always clear who holds liability for the victims' losses and injuries.

Car insurance claims: There are things you need to do

If you find yourself part of a motor vehicle accident, the first thing on your mind shouldn't be the status of your vehicle. Instead, you need to focus most of your time and attention on your personal health.

Once you receive treatment and know how to deal with your injuries over the long term, you can then learn more about the process of making a car insurance claim. While this sounds simple enough, there's something you need to know: Your car insurance company is not always on your side.

I was in a car accident. Do I have a personal injury claim?

After a car accident, especially one that results in an injury to you, one of the first questions that victims ask is, "Who is at fault?" Determining fault and liability is not always easy, but it is a crucial part of building a case for a personal injury suit to address your medical costs and any other expenses or losses you suffer because of the accident.

If you recently suffered injuries in a car accident, and believe that the other driver is responsible, then you may have grounds to build a personal injury lawsuit. However, this is not a simple matter, and may take a very long time to reach a conclusion. You may see the matter resolved in a matter of weeks if everything goes as smoothly as possible, but it is more like a matter of months, or even more than a year, until you reach a settlement and actually receive an award.
