Sonoma County Wrongful Death Attorney Sadly Reports Child Fatality from Texting-While-Driving

It is always sad when I read about a fatality caused by a careless driver, and I have devoted my career to making those drivers accountable. When the culprit is simple distracted driving, and when the accident could have so easily been avoided, it’s just so much worse! And it is far more tragic to me when the victim is a little girl.

Lowering the speed limit to 15 mph in school zones, investing in injury prediction models (which will show us areas that are dangerous for pedestrians), and upping enforcement efforts in those dangerous areas are good places to…

UPDATE: Google Maps Causes Pedestrian Accident?

On May 26, we posted a story about Google Maps’ addition to their navigation services. Google added a service for bike riders to use when plotting out their bike routes. The service allows pedestrians to choose routes based on safety and athletic difficulty. In a surprising turn of events, this addition to Google Maps that was predicted to increase pedestrian safety is now being accused of putting a California woman at risk when she went out for a walk. The woman claims that the route Google Maps planned for her walk was dangerous and led to her getting hit by…
