Understanding the dangers associated with texting while driving

In this day and age, residents in Arizona and across the nation are heavily reliant on technology. It is part of their daily routine, and many could not complete their tasks at work or school without some form of technology. The need and desire to include technology in life tends to impact other areas that may not be reliant on that technology. For example, it is unfortunately increasingly taking over the time a driver spends in a vehicle. While using a phone in general is not a risky activity, texting while driving could prove to be very dangerous or even fatal.

Five-car crash in Phoenix injures eighteen victims

The roadway is often the stage of various types of collisions. In some cases, when an initial crash occurs, this could lead to several other vehicles becoming involved. A multi-vehicle collision could involve numerous automobiles and result in several injured victims. In these matters, it might be difficult to determine the party at fault or if several drivers were liable in the crash. This is why the investigation process is crucial and civil actions are reliant on this step.

Who is at fault when a pedestrian is hit outside of a crosswalk?

When an Arizona pedestrian is struck and injured by a car, the driver may be held liable for medical expenses and other damages if the driver is found to have acted negligently. After an accident in which a pedestrian was struck while lawfully crossing the street in a crosswalk, it's almost certain that a court will find that the driver acted negligently. But what if the pedestrian wasn't in a crosswalk? Can the driver still be held liable? These questions raise some complex issues under Arizona law.

Two city workers in Phoenix injured by distracted driver

It is not uncommon for drivers in Arizona to encounter a construction site. These areas often block off a lane of traffic or a shoulder while workers tend to the road. In order to avoid accidents in these construction zones, cones and blockades are set up and the speed limit is often reduced. Although these precautions are set up, a negligent driver could easily cause a serious car accident with a construction vehicle or worker.
