Not getting enough sleep has been linked to many health and psychological disorders. This is the first study I have seen that shows a direct link that insomnia contributes to fatal car accidents, and fatal falls. Make sure you get enough sleep. Norm

Porsche sued over Paul Walker car crash
SheKnows.com
According to the lawsuit, Kristine Rodas claims that her husband Roger was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT at a safe speed of 55 mph before the accident occurred.
Norman Gregory Fernandez's insight:

I know this appears to be a flat our excessive speed / negligent driving case, but everything is not always what it seems in some cases. The makers of Porsche , sell the car as a psuedo racing type of car, and expect that their buyers will drive them fast. If there was a defect in the design that may have been a contributing factor in the crash, it will be up to a jury to apportion Porsche's percentage of fault if any.

Norman Gregory Fernandez's insight:
Marajuana is not yet legal in California, except for those with prescription medical marajuana cards. Even if you have a valid Medical Marajuana card, it is illegal to drive under the influence of Marajuana. This is also true for various prescription drugs and alcohol. Don't smoke pot and drive in California or you can face a DWI.Norm

California Vehicle Code section 21590 creates a "presumptive" pedestrian right to cross at an intersection, even if a crosswalk hasn't been painted on the asphalt and there are no lights.
Norman Gregory Fernandez's insight:

Never jaywalk unless it is completely safe. There may be a presumptive right of way for people crossing the street, even when there is no crosswalk. But there is also a California jury instruction that makes the pedestrian at fault when they dart into a street giving vehicle drivers no time to avoid them.


Your life is not worth the risk. In a pedestrian v. vehicle, the vehicle always wins. 


I have done many catastrophic pedestrian accident cases. You may have a great lawsuit, but at what cost to your body. It is not worth it.


Cross the street at marked crosswalks, and better, a place where there are stop signs or traffic signals. Look both ways before crossing.

California pushes to finish driverless car rules - USA TODAY

California pushes to finish driverless car rules - USA TODAY | California Car Accident Lawyer | Scoop.it
89.3 KPCCCalifornia pushes to finish driverless car rulesUSA TODAYCalifornia's law requires autonomous vehicles to log records of operation so the data can be used to reconstruct an accident.
Norman Gregory Fernandez's insight:
I am very excited about the prospect of automated self driving cars. I think this technology could be a real solution to the traffic nightmares many of us face each day. if car computers could be linked together let's say in commute mode, bumper to bumper traffic could theoretically be eliminated. If you wanted to drive to Las Vegas or New York, just program the car to drive and go. There probably needs to be some sort of sensor that would sound an alarm to wake us up if we fall asleep. This technology could also greatly reduce car accidents.Norm

KFMB News 8
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - An intersection in Rancho San Diego is finally cleared after a multi-vehicle accident Wednesday involving a probation van full of people.
Norman Gregory Fernandez's insight:

In accidents where the defendant is a governmental entity, you must file a claim within 6 months for personal injuries. Always call a personal injury attorney such as myself for a consultation.
