Who is Most at Risk on California Roads?

By Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie on June 14, 2020

Post Image

Anyone who has driven a California road knows that accidents are a daily occurrence. Whether there is a delay on the I-5 or an intersection is blocked off by fire trucks, we often assume that there was a car accident. We try to tell ourselves that accidents happen to other people, that we are defensive drivers and know our streets better than everyone, but the reality is that an accident can happen to anyone. What is more troubling is that the risk of fatality varies depending on a number of factors, such as alcohol or drug impairment, distracted driving, and even age.

Post Image

Almost every industry in California, from rideshare drivers to freelance journalists to music festivals, is feeling the effect of AB5.

How to Identify and Report a DUI

By Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie on May 19, 2020

Post Image

If you are like most people, you have probably had the experience of being on the road with a drunk driver. It can be a scary feeling, knowing that you cannot predict or trust their behavior. Your first instinct may have been to get as far away from that vehicle as possible, and this is the best method to avoiding a collision. If you happen to spot a driver who appears to be intoxicated or impaired, reporting it to the police could also help save their life, as well as the lives of innocent people sharing the road.

Slip-and-Falls Are More Than a Visit to the ER

By Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie on May 4, 2020

Post Image

Most people brush off slip-and-falls as clumsiness, even if it was someone else’s fault. When no injuries are involved, this makes sense; no one wants to make a fuss over something small. But if you fall down a dark staircase or cracked your head because restaurant staff didn’t clean up a spilled drink, then a small fuss would be the least of anyone’s worries.

By Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie on April 28, 2020

Post Image

Stray dogs can pose a risk to both children and adults. With no owner to control them, they can attack and injure innocent people. When a dog has no clear owner, it may be difficult to recover compensation for a dog bite. In some cases, the owner of the property where the attack occurred may be held liable for housing a dangerous animal, even if the property owner is not the dog owner.
