Driving past an 18-wheeler can be an unnerving experience, and some California drivers might chalk this fear up as being somewhat irrational. Recent dash cam footage from a motorist's vehicle demonstrated just how founded those fears might be. The footage captured a truck accident that left one person injured.
The minutes and hours after a car accident is not typically the time you may be in the proper mindset. You have just been through a harrowing experience that in some cases may leave you feeling lucky to be alive. Even the thought of a loved one in the car being injured or killed if not for some luck or the matter of inches can leave you jilted for some time.
Even though the process helps individuals re-establish their financial stability, many people in California still view bankruptcy in a negative light. Perhaps because of this viewpoint, recent reports that bankruptcy filings recently hit a 10-year low might seem like good news. While some people might be avoiding Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy because they are handling their debts well, many others might be facing obstacles that prevent them from seeking debt relief.
Building a business from the ground up is no small feat, and many California business owners face financial ups and downs along the way. Recovering from those downs can be difficult though, especially for businesses that have expanded to include franchises that span multiple states. In some of these cases, a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing might be the most appropriate option.
California police believe that alcohol was more than likely a factor in a recent deadly collision. The head-on crash left three people dead and another two seriously hurt. These types of motor vehicle accidents are often devastating for both surviving victims and the families of those who lost their lives, but most people have options for seeking justice.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy is a popular option for people who are ready to discharge their debts and move forward with their lives. Unfortunately, not everyone qualifies for this process. Individuals must earn less than the median California income to file for Chapter 7, which leaves many people still in desperate need of debt relief. For these people, Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be an excellent option.
