First, let's discuss what types of damages may be awarded in such a case.

Premises liability and safety concerns at Alameda swim center

Summertime is right around the corner and that means crowded public pools for those seeking some relief from the heat. If the Emma Hood Swim Center does not quickly correct several ongoing safety and environmental issues, Alameda residents could be forced to look elsewhere for a public place to swim. The Alameda County Environmental Health Department will close the center at the end of May if the issues are not resolved. The swim center is approximately 60 years old.

The importance of crash reconstruction after a car accident

In determining the correct cause of a car accident, crash reconstruction can be a vital tool. It can piece together the entire picture of a scene, including the before and after accident circumstances. In fact, it is so important that a car accident injury case may be won based on the findings of a crash reconstruction report, especially in a wrongful death matter. While these reports are usually not required for minor accidents or fender benders, they are of the utmost importance when a death has occurred.

What types of damages are available in a wrongful death action?
