Holding a Hit-and-Run Driver Responsible for A Crash

By Pursley Law Firm |

It happens almost every day in California. A hit-and-run driver causes a serious injury or fatal crash and flees the scene.

Bicycle Accidents and Head Injuries

By Pursley Law Firm |

Bicycle crash victims sustained head injuries in about a third of bicycle accidents. That’s a third of all victims, not just serious crash victims. Many of these incidents aren’t classified a ”serious” because the victim sustained no other serious injuries and didn’t immediately require extended hospitalization.

Typically, people shouldn’t give up a… Read More »

What Causes Electric Scooter Accidents?

By Pursley Law Firm |

Before we answer this question, we should clear up a common myth. Electric scooter and other crashes usually aren’t accidents. Usually, an “accident” implies that the injury or other incident was unintentional (I accidentally left my keys in the lock and someone broke in the house) or inevitable (I accidentally dropped the ball and… Read More »

Legal Groundwork in Bus Crash Cases

By Pursley Law Firm |

Municipal and intercity bus crash claims might be the most complex personal injury matters in California. For example, the respondeat superior doctrine usually applies in these wrecks.

Legal Options for Injured Workers

By Pursley Law Firm |

After several years of decline, the number of work-related injuries increased substantially in 2022. A sharp increase in the number of occupational diseases, such as hearing loss, mostly fueled the higher numbers.

What to Expect in a Truck Crash Claim

By Pursley Law Firm |

Almost all truck crash victims can expect a settlement. About 96 percent of vehicle collision claims settle out of court. Out-of-court settlements end cases sooner, so victims receive their compensation sooner. Furthermore, these resolutions avoid an emotional courtroom showdown that many victims are in no shape, mentally, physically or otherwise, to participate in. Some… Read More »
