Ferry crash shakes up California pier and injures 2

Southern California is no pedestrian's paradise beyond the beaches, but there are many alternatives to driving. Millions of Californians rely on buses, trains and boats to get them to work or errands and back every day. Professional drivers and strict rules around mass transit keep these people safe as they thumb through their smartphones or books.

San Fernando Valley bus crash injures at least 25

Thousands of Californians, mainly in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, use mass transit to avoid dealing with traffic on their own. It's often more appealing to spend a commute reading a book or browsing through social media posts instead of fighting traffic. Accidents are also generally less common for buses and trains.

What's the best approach after a mass transit injury?

Buses and trains are a big part of Californian's commutes. It's bad enough when mass transit is late, but an accident with injuries can set lives back for months. If the only answer is to sue for financial damages, it's best to know who can be sued and why.

Slip-and-fall accidents: Environmental hazards

A lot of different factors contribute to slip-and-fall accidents. For instance, old age may make a fall more likely and can increase the odds of serious injuries when that fall does happen. Another potential factor is simply the way the person is interacting with their environment; for instance, a person who is rushing at work, trying to make a deadline, may be more likely to be involved in a slip-and-fall incident.

Sometimes dangerous dogs hide warning signs

When you go jogging by a house and you hear a dog barking and snarling on the other side of the fence, it is easy to imagine that that dog may bite you. However, it is important to remember that many dogs do not give off such obvious warning signs. They may bite unexpectedly.

How many runners face potential dog attacks?

Do you ever worry about being attacked by a dog while you're out for a run? You know that dogs often react aggressively to people who are moving quickly. Dogs are predators by nature, and they like to chase. They also see people moving quickly toward them as threats in some cases, so they may act in what they believe is self-defense.
