Treatment for serious injuries can continue past acute care

Here is the common scenario people envision following a serious accident injury in California. You are taken to an emergency room or acute care facility for urgent treatment.

Did you lose your husband in a car crash?

A fatal accident never happens when we expect it to. One minute you're saying goodbye to your husband as he leaves for the insurance office.

Numerous laws in California address distracted driving

There are many dangerous driving behaviors that occur out on the road.

These behaviors keep happening, even though massive strides have been taken in the last few decades to curb these dangerous driving acts.
