5 Things NOT to Say to an Insurance Company After a Car Accident

In the latest figures available from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, there were 6.26 road fatalities per 100,000 residents in the Golden State in 2014. Similarly, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety, annual statewide traffic deaths stood at 3,000 during 2013. In the county of Los Angeles, the California Office of Traffic Safety recorded a total of 29,032 car crash deaths and injuries during 2013. Of those, 2,381 involved a drunk driver, 1,234 involved motorcycles, 2,340 involved bicycles, and 2,863 involved pedestrians.

Commercial Truck Accidents in Palmdale

Nestled in the central, northern, region of Los Angeles County, Palmdale, California is known as "A place to call home." Like so many other parts of the country, Palmdale, relies on the trucking industry to bring goods into the city and thankfully, commerce is alive and well. Commercial trucks are both part of our economy, and traffic, transporting goods across long distances. Driving alongside passenger vehicles, these tractor-trailers, or, big rigs, weigh an astonishing 20 times more than the average private automobile. In fact, there are more than 5.6 million of these giants traveling the roads, according to figures published by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. With approximately 7.5 million private passenger vehicles sharing the same roads in the county, that proximity and speed make it a potentially dangerous situation.

The Troubling Takata Airbag Recall Widens

Whenever we get behind the wheel or sit in a passenger seat, most of us take for granted the numerous safety features in which our car is equipped while indulging all the new-age comforts. Today's automobile provides far more safety and technology than what they did just a decade ago, from integrated navigation, communication and musical systems as well as their sleek styling and great gas mileage.
