Personal Injuries from Bus Accidents

Thousands of people ride public transportation every day. From trains to buses, the need for public transportation is more than necessary for the everyday commuter. Although public transportation is one of the safest ways to commute to and from work, there is still the possibility of an injury occurring. The two most common public transportation methods in most metropolitan cities are busses and trains. However, busses are more of a common place to produce personal injuries than trains based on one key element: people. According the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), “Human error is a causative factor in 85% or more of all crashes and numerous motorcoach accidents that have resulted in fatalities where driver fatigue has been determined to be a principal cause” (ntsb.gov, 1999). Fatigue and human error can be avoided, but sometimes people ignore these signs and that’s when people get injured. Negligence and recklessness are top reasons for accidents involving buses. When a driver is tired or not paying attention to the road with enough care, the consequences can lead to severe injury and even death. Age also plays a significant role in bus accidents. The Journal of Safety Research reported risk factors associated with bus accidents, indicating...

The Personal Injury Dilemma

Personal injury can cause time away from personal activities and family. They can even prevent a person from going to work or fulfilling their employment commitments. Although missing time away from personal activities and family can be frustrating, having to take time off work because of the injury can be more troubling based on the injury causing financial trouble, unwanted stress, and damaged credit opportunities. If a person caused the injury themselves, they must accept the consequences of the actions and get the medical attention they need. However, if the injury was caused by another person or business because of negligence or recklessness, there are steps a person can take to pursue damages for the injuries suffered. At One Law Group in Beverly Hills, we understand that there are many ways that a personal injury can happen, so we are well prepared to manage all types of personal injury claims.

Weather-Related Auto Accident Injuries

During those winter months, the road conditions can become quite dangerous. With dangerous road conditions, the chances of rear ending another vehicle or getting rear ended increase dramatically. Although we all do the best we can to be prepared for driving in wet or icy conditions, sometimes there is nothing we can do to prevent someone from smashing into the back of our vehicle. The majority of rear-end accidents result in an injury to more than one person, and that injury is usually whiplash, which can produce a number of other conditions. However, in more severe auto accidents where one vehicle rear ends another, the injury suffered by the victim can be life altering. In either situation, after an auto accident, a person should always seek medical attention to ensure that there are no underlying injuries that they haven’t felt yet. Sometimes, an injury may not be noticeable until a few days or weeks after the auto accident. At the same time, you should also seek the counsel of a personal injury attorney to help you file a personal injury claim. At One Law Group in Beverly Hills, we have helped hundreds of people receive damages for the auto injuries they...

Search Warrant | Personal Injury Beverly Hills

[vc_row triangle_shape="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Smart Phones, Police, and Warrants [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="10px"][vc_column_text]A very common questions nowadays: What happens to your property once you are arrested? Before smart phones were invented, the police were legally entitled to take the arrestee’s cell phone as evidence in determining their involvement in additional criminal activity than what is already apparent at the time of the arrest. For instance, if the police arrest someone because of their alleged involvement with drug possessions, they could acquire additional and incriminating evidence (text messages, phone calls) regarding the case. The police would benefit from the information provided in the cell phone, which in likely cases, would lead to much harsher penalties for the crime. In the end, instead of just drug possession, this person could now be charged with drug possession, transportation, and sale of the drugs based on text message and phone call evidence taken by the police at the time of the arrest.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="22px"][vc_column_text]However, over the last few years, many United States courts have determined and acknowledged that modern smart phones are more like a computer in that they contain very, very personal information. This is where your privacy rights are factored into this type of case: when your personal information...
