Four people injured received treatment for injuries ranging from major to minor after being injured in a car accident in Concow, some 80 miles north of Sacramento. However, the road to obtaining medical attention involved a circuitous sequence of events.
After a single car accident occurred in Concow – including one person being thrown from the car – the four accident victims decided to find their own transportation to the hospital.
A passerby stopped to help, but got a flat tire on the way to the hospital. Cal-Fire and Paramedics were then sent out to bring the four individuals to the hospital, but the California Highway Patrol was not there. After much confusion and delay, the car accident victims were then sent to two different hospitals and were treated.
As stated by a Butte County spokesperson, the message here is “Please call 9-1-1.”
Familiarizing yourself regarding what to do after a car accident is crucial. First, ensure you are all right and anyone who needs medical assistance receives it at once. This means calling 9-1-1 and seeking medical attention immediately.
Accident victims have the best chance for a good outcome if they are treated within an hour. People in accidents in remote areas can often receive medical aid fastest from paramedics and airflight teams.
After securing any necessary medical attention, you can then turn to information gathering about the conditions surrounding the accident.

According to reports, a negligence lawsuit has been filed against Muni after a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus driver hit and killed a pedestrian, Emily Dunn, in the city’s Castro District. The Muni bus lawsuit alleges fault on the part of Muni officials for placing an inexperienced driver on a new route.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle or pedestrian accident, consulting with an experiencedStockton personal injury lawyer is important to begin an investigation into the various factors that may have caused or contributed to an incident.
Here a complete investigation into the pedestrian accident involves more than just looking at the actions of the driver of the bus – Wallace Loggins. Loggins was charged last month with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and pleaded not guilty. He was turning left when he hit Dunn, who was almost across the street when she was struck. Loggins didn’t realize he had hit someone until he heard screams from a bystander. According to the wrongful death lawsuit, while Loggins may be partly to blame for this accident, it was Muni’s negligence that “caused” the death. By placing a new driver with just eight months experience on a new route, Muni acted negligently and caused the harm. The suit claims that Loggins “did everything he could,” but he was on a new route, lost and Muni failed to provide directions.
Many times, several factors may go into causing an accident. It is important to meet with a skilled Stockton accident attorney to evaluate all of the issues that may have caused or contributed to an accident to ensure you receive all the compensation you deserve.

California news reports that a negligence lawsuit has been filed by a group of consumers against the Skechers company based on its “Shape Up Shoes.” The negligence lawsuit alleges that both fraud and negligence stemming from claims by the shoemakers that wearing the shoes serves as a workout.

Here Skechers ads claim, “With Shape-ups, you can finally get in shape without going to the gym.” The advertisments also assert that Skechers’ patented design changes the way a person walks, utilizing different muscles and firming them up. According to the lawsuit rather than helping people get in shape, shoe owners suffered serious injuries such as torn tendons and ligaments, torn cartilage and hip fractures. Wearing the shoes also caused people to fall and injure themselves.
Additionally it is unknown whether any safety tests were performed before this dangerous product was placed on the market. As noted by representatives of the injured parties “the public, when they purchase the product, has the right to assume the product is safe.”
Liability for a dangerous product can be established in many ways, such as through a fraud, negligence or product liability lawsuit. For example, in a product liability lawsuit where a defect causes your injury or damages, you may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages.
In a similar lawsuit, Reebok was fined $25 million by the Federal Trade Commission for false claims that its shoes could strengthen legs and backsides.
