Drunk driver kills child, injured other child and adult

For most people in California, the recent Thanksgiving weekend and holiday was hopefully a relaxing and joyful time spent with friends and family. Unfortunately for some residents or visitors to the state, this holiday period was marred by tragedies that could have and should have been avoided. Vehicle accidents caused by negligent drivers notoriously ruin too many celebrations for people, leaving them to grieve for their lost loved ones instead of enjoying precious time together.

Your guide to Holiday travel safety

One of the only ways to completely avoid a car accident this holiday season is to stay home. If your family lives several hours away, or just across town, this may not be an option. Like the majority of people in the Bakersfield area and across the country, you will probably have to climb behind the wheel and drive to your parents' or in-laws' home for the festivities.

How serous is whiplash?

You might have recently been in a rear-end collision, or maybe you were mildly side-swiped or someone stopped suddenly in front of you. A minor fender bender does not usually cause serious injuries but now, a few days after the accident, your neck and shoulders are feeling quite sore and stiff. You realize that you have whiplash, but you are unsure if you should see a doctor. It might help you and other Californians to know the potential complications of a seemingly minor injury like whiplash.

Post-accident spinal cord injury symptoms

You're in a horrific car accident on the way home from work. In happens in just a split second. One moment you're driving down the highway and thinking about what you'll eat for dinner. The next moment a pickup truck is coming across the median and it slams into the front of your car.

What you need to know about truck driver hours

Drive on any of California’s congested freeways and it is guaranteed that you will see large trucks mixed in among the passenger vehicles. You are probably already aware of the dangers that big rigs pose to you and others on these fast roads. The large size of 18-wheelers makes it difficult for truck drivers to slow down quickly or maneuver in time to avoid an accident. Our team at McKnight, McKnight, McKnight & McKnight, Attorneys at Law understands the risks, as well as the many factors that contribute to serious trucking collisions.
