What Are the Five Major Causes of Bus Crashes?

A bus crash in Palm Springs California took the lives of 13 people including the bus driver and injured 31 others, many seriously. The casino bus, which was traveling along Interstate 10, rammed the rear of a tractor trailer without any sign of slowing down. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the crash.

Why You Should Carry Higher Uninsured Motorist Coverage

Imagine you are stopped at a red light, patiently waiting for green, when you hear a screech of tires and out of nowhere, a car rear-ends you. You are hurt from the car accident, incur medical expenses, and maybe miss some work. Most people believe the insurance of the at-fault driver will pay you for your loss. But that's not always the case because the driver may have purchased only the state minimum requirement. So, unless you have Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Coverage (UM), you will be limited to what the at-fault driver purchased. Although uninsured motorist coverage is very beneficial, it remains an under-bought product. This is due to several reasons: cost, awareness, and value comprehension.

What to Do if You Are Involved in a Bicycle Accident

Bicycling is becoming a more popular sport and leisure activity across the state. Many parts of the California enjoy sunny weather throughout the year which means cyclists are taking to the streets year-round for two-wheel transportation and exercise. Bicyclists must share the road with drivers and unfortunately, distracted driving is one of the leading causes of roadway collisions, including hitting bicyclists. Cyclists have an increased risk of being ii with a passenger, commercial, or government vehicle.

The Liability Risks of Using Uber & Lyft

Everyone seems to use either Lyft or Uber. There are liability risks of using Uber and Lyft, but unfortunately, most people using these convenient ride-sharing services don't think about it -- that is, until they are involved in a car accident. The fact is, when you ride in any vehicle, you are always at-risk of being in an auto collision. You might or might not buckle-up when you hop into a Lyft or Uber car, and you certainly are not alone.
