There are many ways for drivers to get involved in accidents. There are thousands of injuries each day on America’s roads caused by other drivers or weather conditions. However, there are occasional issues that are just too bizarre to consider commonly. Even situations that are not frequent are still a risk.
Electrical Vault Explosion Car Accidents Are No Joke
Such issues are more common than you might think. In April 2015, KTLA reported on an electrical vault explosion that fortunately caused no injuries. ABC Los Angeles also said on a January 2015 explosion that caused a car crash in Van Nuys. The blast caused severe damage to the vehicle and left the driver laying unconscious for twenty minutes. Such accidents are not uncommon in California, with its aging electrical infrastructure.
The Terrible Risk of Explosions to California Vehicle Drivers
Such explosions carry a massive risk for drivers. There is no reason that such a future spark couldn’t cause a car to be destroyed. And that could lead to severe injuries or even death. If public agencies or private companies did not properly maintain these vaults, both could be held liable for all injuries and damages.
When an organization takes on the responsibility of handling such infrastructure, there is a clear need to keep the public from any potential harm. Without regular maintenance or construction, these agencies could be held responsible.

For many commuters and bystanders, the sirens of police and emergency services mean that help is on the way. These brave, heroic individuals, like all segments of society, have their weak links. Today we will discuss how emergency responders have exceptions and licenses to violate our standard vehicle codes.
And we will discuss how to efficiently deal with these people in case they go outside their acceptable risks for a given driving situation. Namely, if they cause you, the public at large, or someone you love a terrible roadway tragedy we tell you how to sue them in court.
The various types of agencies and personnel most commonly involved in police and ambulance driver types collisions are the ones out there in the thick of it every day, and these kinds of characters include:
Firefighters and EMS, for example, are usually heading to the scene of an accident or a blaze. So they make their way known with their flashing lights and loud sirens. At least that is what we are led think.
Paramedics also rush to help injury victims across the country, often at significant risk to themselves.
Police, of course, chase down speeders and criminals. But is this always the reason they are running red lights flashing, and having close calls with taxpayers on the roads? In their ways, each different emergency service plays a significant role in making sure that our society can function safely. But let’s see if they were acting within the course and scope of their jobs, or just abusing the system to get somewhere quick, for example.
Even the Most Honorable First Responder Can Be a Negligent Vehicle Driver
Unfortunately, mistakes do and will happen. Every year due to accidents, police, fire, and paramedic vehicles collide with other cars and trucks on the road. The high rates of speed and large size of these vehicles can often lead to severe injury and even death. The situation is even more severe if these vehicles are one of the few in service in an area.
Bogus Emergency Notifications/Alarms Can Lead to Devastation
Sometimes these accidents are caused by improperly functioning emergency notifications. This can include sirens and lights that were not working well or at all. Many of the accidents caused by such emergency vehicles are due to drivers not seeing the lights flashing or hearing the siren blaring. If the other motorists do not have the time to get out of the way, an accident often results. The busy California roads and freeways can rapidly lead to a multi-car pileup and even more injuries.
Legal Help is Useful in these Situations
When injured in such an accident, it is vital to find out as much as possible about the causes of such a disaster. Next, you need to know how to respond appropriately. You will likely require immediate medical care. A skilled attorney will help you find such care, and in some cases a means to pay for it.
Such legal experts like the hawk-eyes at Ehline Law will be able to work with accident reconstructionists. Then they can recreate the scene of the incident and determine which factors caused the crash.
It Could Be That a Non-Working or Broken Siren that Caused Your Wreck
They can help determine if non-working flashers or sirens played a role. Non-working lights can also be involved with certain construction vehicles and over-sized vehicles. If their lights were not functioning, this could be a primary cause of the accident. The agency meant to maintain these warning signs or the company that initially manufactured or distributed them could be liable.
