Kris Jenner Crashes Rolls Royce Near Los Angeles

Kris Jenner Crashes Rolls Royce Near Los Angeles | Los Angeles Accident Attorney News | Scoop.it
Kris Jenner was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles on Wednesday, August 3 — find out what happened
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Luckily, it sounds like everyone is O.K. including Kris and Kylie Jenner after this car accident near Los Angeles. If the facts are as what the Jenners have been stating in social media: (i.e. that a vehicle "cut in front of them") then, the likely legal fault for the accident would be making an unsafe lane change pursuant to California Vehicle Code section 21658.

I-5 fatal crash: 2 mothers, 4 children killed when minivan is hit on Grapevine

I-5 fatal crash: 2 mothers, 4 children killed when minivan is hit on Grapevine | Los Angeles Accident Attorney News | Scoop.it
GORMAN, Calif. (AP) -- A fiery minivan wreck killed two mothers and their four children early Tuesday on a highway in northern Los Angeles County, authorities said.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Beyond tragic!  The Grapevine is that stretch of road going over the mountains that lie between Los Angeles and Kern County, CA. It is the major north/south route and, as such, has a high volume of traffic from both cars and trucks carrying cargo.  It is notorious for accidents involving multiple vehicles especially passenger automobiles and tractor trailer rigs.  Our thoughts and prayers are with this family!

Woman Killed and Children Hurt When Crash Sends Car Careening into Them | Los Angeles Accident Attorney News | Scoop.it
North Hollywood-Toluca Lake, CA - A 63-year-old pedestrian was killed in North Hollywood and three children were hurt when a crash sent a car crashing into them.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

This is yet another tragedy in North Hollywood.  It appears that there have been a spate of fatal pedestrian crashes in that area in the last 12-14 months.  It may be time for the City of Los Angeles to examine the area and make modifications or improvements to infrastructure to try to reduce these incidents.

Glass 'Skyslide' danger 70 stories up? Broken ankle lawsuit - MyNewsLA.com

Glass 'Skyslide' danger 70 stories up? Broken ankle lawsuit - MyNewsLA.com | Los Angeles Accident Attorney News | Scoop.it
The glass "Skyslide" nearly 1,000 feet above downtown Los Angeles hasn't been open yet for a month, but it's already the target of a personal injury lawsuit.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

In my opinion, this is going to be a difficult case upon which to prevail.  The legal doctrine of "assumption of a known risk" comes into play in these types of situations.  It can be used to either reduce or even sometimes negate claims where people are injured while engaging in "high risk activities."

Street racing may be factor in deadly Ventura Boulevard crash

Street racing may be factor in deadly Ventura Boulevard crash | Los Angeles Accident Attorney News | Scoop.it
Illegal street racing may have led to a collision on Ventura Boulevard on Saturday that left three people dead and four others injured.
Steven M. Sweat's insight:

Yet another instance where "street racing" may have caused persons to lose their lives!  This is becoming all too frequent in and around Los Angeles and, if true, this would be the second time in the last 12 months that speed racing has ended in death in the San Fernando Valley.  This is a tragedy!
