4-year-old awaits reconstructive surgery after dog attack

Too many dog owners fail to educate themselves about the particular lifestyles their pets will require in order to be healthy and friendly. For example, if a dog whose breed is known for an active lifestyle is chained to an anchor in a yard, then there is a good chance that the animal will develop aggressive tendencies. Dog owners can also neglect to properly socialize their pets, and unfortunately, serious dog bites often result.

Federal traffic agency prepares for influx of older drivers

3 pit bulls chase man in Imperial Beach

Daylight savings time change may lead to pedestrian accidents

On Sunday night, San Diego residents set their clocks back an hour, gaining an hour of sleep but essentially losing an hour of daylight.

As a result, the Bakersfield Police Department has been warning drivers to be on the lookout for pedestrians, who may be much more difficult to spot during the darker morning hours.

What should you do after a hit-and-run in California?

Snoozing bus driver crashes in Alhambra, 8 injured

The commercial vehicle industry is highly regulated in the hopes of preventing catastrophic accidents. Regulations apply to bus and truck companies in regard to vehicle maintenance, drivers' hours and other things in order to ensure that these massive vehicles pose as little of a safety risk as possible. When companies or drivers buck regulations or fail to obey traffic laws, very dangerous collisions can occur.

Researchers continue work to diagnose brain disease

Victims of traumatic brain injuries can experience a number of conditions or symptoms - some of them long-term and others short-term, and some of them that show up right away while others are revealed much later. Because of the varied effects of brain injuries, and the fact that brain injuries are not completely understood by the medical community, it is very difficult to assess the true cost of brain injury treatment. Those who sustain brain injuries in California should always seek medical treatment as soon as possible, and they should also seek legal representation in order to obtain compensation for medical expenses from any responsible parties.
