California Court Finds That Apple Is Not Responsible For Distracted Driving.

As many organizations, spokespeople, or concerned parents will tell you, distracted driving can cause the same dangers as drunk driving. In an age where a wealth of information and social activity are at the tips of our fingers, we must be particularly conscious of the fact that whatever we need our phones for can wait until we have parked. However, what many do not consider is whether the manufacturer of a potentially distracting product, such as a mobile phone, may have some liability when accidents do occur. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert products liability attorney at 617-787-3700.

When the father of an 18 year old kid who died while driving and texting sued Apple, he believed that Apple failed to provide a lock-out feature that would prevent people from using their phones while operating a motor vehicle. However, the California Supreme Court felt that Apple’s role in causing the teen’s death was not nearly proximate enough, and that the teen’s choice to text, instead of driving responsibly, was the overwhelming factor in her death. The Court believed that the string of causation that led to her death did not involve Apple in nearly a direct enough way for liability to attach.

39 Year-Old New York Man Charged With DWI Following Fatal Car Accident.

Although a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit may not be the first thing on your mind after you or a family member are involved in a tragic car accident, it may be the only way for you to begin recovering from your economic losses, pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and emotional trauma. The damages awarded in a personal injury action can help you begin to recover from and pay for any lost wages, outstanding medical expenses, other out-of-pocket losses and , in the case of a wrongful death, funeral expenses. Plaintiffs can rely on an experienced auto accident attorney or wrongful death lawyer specialist here at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm to help guide them through this complicated litigation process.

A two-car accident has led to the arrest of a 39 year-old West Hempstead, New York man. The Nassau County, New York police arrested Roy Gomez on March 13 in Baldwin, New York on suspicion of driving under the influence. The arrest occurred after the Chevrolet Trailblazer he was driving collided with the rear end of a Nissan sedan carrying three passengers that was stopped at a red light. In an attempt to flee, Mr. Gomez drove his Trailblazer a few blocks before parking and taking off on foot. It wasn’t until 3:30 a.m. that police found Mr. Gomez asleep in a boat where they were able to arrest him without further incident.

The three occupants of the Nissan were in need of medical treatment and were transported to a local hospital. A 65 year-old male passenger was thought to have sustained the most serious injuries, which were considered critical. The driver and backseat passenger were believed to have suffered non-life threatening injuries. However, the rear passenger died later that night from his injuries.
