Advocating for your rights following a car accident

Many residents in San Diego rely on motor vehicles to get around. Whether it is to run an errand down the road, to go to work or travel across the state or nation, a motorist is likely to encounter numerous vehicles of various sizes traveling to their next destination. While it is possible for a large number of motor vehicles to travel safely on the roadways at the same time, this is often compromised when motorists fail to uphold their duty to drive safely.

Parents reveal how common teens drive distracted

When teens pass their driving test, they often fail to remember that driving is a privilege that comes with many obligations and duties.

Pedestrians are in a tricky position, because they have a right to be on the roads in certain circumstances and nearly always have a right to be near the roads regardless of the reason. On the same note, these people are often endangered by being too close to traffic, even when they may have a right to be where they are.

Dog bites are common cause of personal injuries

Well-trained and well-maintained dogs can make excellent pets for San Diego residents.
