Unfortunately, it seems as though some California voters thought Proposition 46 was all about increasing trial lawyers' fees in medical malpractice cases. Fb14352, a reader who commented on Kenny Goldberg's KPBS report, wrote, "Drug testing of Doctors was just a ruse. The real reason for the Prop 46 was to get more incentive for lawyers to sue and make more money. I am so happy that Californians could see through their lies."
According to YesOn46.org, the number of deaths in hospitals every year from medical errors is equal to the number of people who would die in two jumbo jet crashes every day.
At approximately 1:15 a.m. on a recent Sunday morning, two women were traveling south on California's 15 Freeway. Unbeknownst to them, another vehicle was approaching their location from behind at a high rate of speed. The resulting car accident caused the deaths of the two women.
Sometimes, when an accident occurs, the seemingly improbable happens. Recently in southern California, after slamming into a stationary car, a van ended up coming to rest upside down on top of the car it had hit. The accident caused serious injuries or death to all five of the vehicle's occupants.
Young drivers tend to be more prone to accidents than those with more experience. Drivers in Southern California are particularly at risk, given the constantly busy roads. An early morning car accident recently left four young people injured and one teenager dead.
A woman was recently on her way to work in the early morning hours when she was struck as she waited for her bus. The California nurse was originally born in the Philippines but had created a happy life in California. She had a large, loving family, and she had progressed to become the director of nurses at a convalescent hospital. The early morning car accident shattered her entire life that morning.
Many parents tell their children when they're first learning to drive that worry about safety is not necessarily over what their children are doing, but rather about the potential negligent and reckless drivers who may be sharing the road with the young and relatively inexperienced drivers. What holds true over the course of a man's life is that he can only ever control what his reactions are when behind the wheel. He has absolutely no control over whether other drivers choose to drink and drive, drive distracted or simply make reckless choices when getting from point A to point B. Negligent and reckless drivers make decisions that lead to serious injuries and sometimes even death as the result of a car accident.
A woman with a bright future ahead of her is now trying to rebuild her life after she was run down and left with life threatening injuries. The victim was struck in an intersection along with a fellow pedestrian and suffered serious injuries. She injured her brain, spine, pelvis and leg.
