Your New Tires Might Not Actually Be New At All

By |May 6th, 2014|Blog|

May 6, 2014

Yesterday, San Diego’s 10 News released an investigative reporting that indicated new tires being sold in San Diego, and nationwide, may not be new at all.

There is no state or federal regulation to stop salesmen from dumping old and potentially dangerous product with a “new” label onto you.  This leaves the burden to you, the consumer.  How can you tell if your tires are new to begin with?  This is an important question to ask, because when a tire is between 6-10 years old it runs the risk of a sudden “tread [...]

Summary: Many Americans see Cinco de Mayo as a good excuse to hit the bars, but the event also preserved our democracy.  Cinco de Mayo is a holiday worth celebrating; if you plan to celebrate tonight, have a plan to get back safe.

We don’t mean to bore you with a history lesson before many of you throw back a couple of Dos Equis tonight to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but first we’d like to bust the common myth that its Mexico’s Independence Day (September 16); however, that would be [...]

Multiple Students Injured in Anaheim Hills School Bus Crash

An Orange Unified School District bus carrying 11 middle school students veered off the road and crashed into a tree in Anaheim Hills yesterday, leaving multiple students with serious injuries. Two students and the bus driver were critically injured and required hospitalization.

The school bus driver, Gerald Rupple, has worked full [...]

At Estey & Bomberger, we represent victims of serious accidents in personal injury lawsuits. Unfortunately, many of the accident victims we represent are children. Sometimes, the accidents in which our youngest clients were involved could have been avoided.

Sen. Boxer Publicly Endorses California Micra Reform

April 11, 2014

Summary: Proponents of California’s MICRA reform have just received significant support with Sen. Barbara Boxer’s public endorsement for MICRA improvement yesterday.  Perhaps with her support, Sacramento can do the right thing by enacting the Troy and Alana Pack Patient Safety Act – an act that would give victims of medical malpractice enough compensation to fully heal from their physical and mental injuries.

The medical community’s smear campaign against the trial lawyers that support Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) reform has just become more difficult.  Yesterday, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) publically endorsed [...]

Can Medical Marijuana Help TBI Victims?

By |April 9th, 2014|Blog|

Can Medical Marijuana Help TBI Victims?
Medical marijuana is being prescribed by doctors to treat a variety of illnesses and symptoms, including muscle spasms, nausea from chemotherapy, seizure disorders, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain, poor appetite and weight loss resulting from chronic illness, and glaucoma.

People who have used medical marijuana as part of their medical treatment plans have reported varied levels of success with the drug.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit by Family of Woman Frozen to Death at Hospital to Proceed
An appellate court has ruled that the family of a woman who may have frozen to death after being declared dead prematurely and placed in a morgue can move forward with a wrongful death lawsuit against a Los Angeles hospital.

In July 2010, Maria de Jesus Arroyo, 80, suffered a heart attack and was pronounced dead after being transported by ambulance to White Memorial Medical Center in Boyle Heights. Days later, mortuary workers found her body in an unzipped body bag, face-down. She had a broken [...]
