What Are Auto Insurance Ratings?

What Are Auto Insurance Ratings? | California Car Accident and Injury Attorney News | Scoop.it
Bring up the topic of auto insurance in polite conversation, and the conversation might lose its politeness in a hurry.

Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Consumers in California and nationwide should definitely purchase auto insurance with as much care and research as they do the purchase of an automobile.  All companies are not equal when it comes to cost of premiums, coverage, and, most importantly, customer service in the event of a claim.  Good insight here from attorney Laurie Robbins.

Steven M. Sweat's insight:

It is a frightening statistic indeed to know that 1 in 5 vehicles on U.S. Roadways have some type of safety defect that subjects them to recall.  Many people don't know that their vehicle has such issues until they have a wreck and the defect results in injury or death.

Uber may face $1 million fine over California drunk driver complaints

Uber may face $1 million fine over California drunk driver complaints | California Car Accident and Injury Attorney News | Scoop.it
Uber's ride-sharing network has repeatedly failed to promptly suspend and investigate drunk driving, according to California regulators.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

From a civil lawsuit standpoint, if Uber ignores complaints about drivers operating their vehicles under the influence and that same driver later causes a wreck from being DUI that injures or kills someone, it would be possible to argue that Uber should be liable. Furthermore, failure to take those drivers out of their "driving pool", could expose them to punitive damages (i.e. additional civil money paid to punish and deter future bad conduct).  For more information on Uber passenger injury claims visit our webpage here: Uber Passenger Injury Lawyer.

How a California driver's license is creating deportation fears

How a California driver's license is creating deportation fears | California Car Accident and Injury Attorney News | Scoop.it
Giving driver's licenses to those here illegally transformed many lives — but is now also sparking fear and criticism.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Prior to allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain driver's licenses, California had major issues with hit and run auto accidents.  A recent study has shown that allowing drivers to get licensed, which in turn requires them to be insured, has reduced these incidents.  As a personal injury attorney that represents persons injured or killed in auto accidents, I really hope this fear of deportation doesn't reverse the trend of more drivers being licensed and insured in the Golden State.
