This loving father passed away after two weeks of fighting for his life. Now it is time to rest. The news reports give testimony of a life lived well with lots of friends and family.

Now his family and loved one has to pick up the pieces of a shattered life. The decedent allegedly rear-ended the car in front of him, which caused the fatal collision. With this being a rear-end accident the fault is going to be presumed to be on that of the motorcyclist. That means that his heirs need to hire a Phoenix wrongful death lawyer.

Car Accident Whiplash: You often hear people speak about getting in a Phoenix car accident and have whiplash. However, what is whiplash. How long does it last? What causes whiplash? Why does it hurt so long? Is car accident whiplash serious? These are all great questions, and the best person to address these types of questions is a doctor and not a Phoenix car accident whiplash lawyer. However, here are some answers that we have learned from representing people who have suffered car accident whiplash. What Is Whiplash: Whiplash is the procedure of when you are struck from behind and your body accelerates backwards and your neck stays same and then your body accelerates forward. This motion causes muscles in your back and and neck to be strained and sprained. A sprain or strain is the actual tearing of muscles of various microscopic degrees. The muscles in most of us are not strong enough in our neck to stop the force and stabilize our head from going back while the rest of our body goes forward. How Long Does Car Accident Whiplash Last: The acute pain can last for a number of weeks in a healthy individual with no history of neck pain, neck instability, or spinal stenosis. Normally, the human body will heal from this injury over a period of six to eight weeks. However, in those first days and weeks a car accident whiplash injury is really unpleasant. It down right hurts. Why Does Whiplash Hurt For So… Read More »Car Accident Whiplash
Self Driving Car Accidents: As we move towards self-driving cars one question we have not asked and explored is how long do these cars last. Ford came out recently and said their self driving cars only last four years. However, most Americans do not have the means to afford a new car every four years. What responsibility does Ford or other automakers have to remove this vehicles from the road once they reach four years? Will Self Driving Cars Create More Economic Inequality? The used vehicle market is how many Americans acquire their cars. Yet, what will happen when a self driving car is three years old. Will someone be willing to obtain the car for the last year of service. If the self driving car is involved in a motor vehicle accident who should be held liable? Should it be the owner of the vehicle or the manufacturer? Will car insurance companies even cover a self-driving car when it gets older than four years. Will the federal or state governments subsidize the cost of these vehicles even though they might be priced above what a working family can afford? Self Driving Car Crashes Since these vehicles are programmed by humans the algorithm carries in it, the implicit and explicit bias that the programmer have. We have seen how these cars fail to see black people. We have seen this same structural racism in facial recognition software, and in risk assessments for parole and bail. As a Phoenix car accident… Read More »Self Driving Car Accidents
Black Father In The Age Of Trump I Have A Beautiful Black Daughter I am a black father of an intelligent and beautiful six-year old daughter. She is a decent child, curious about the world and operates within it with an innate set of core values of how the world should be. She is charitable in ways that far surpass my wife and I. She is a six-year old child who just learned about money and is continuing to ask questions to deepen her understanding of currency. How money is used, the different dominations, what you can and cannot do with it. She is a six-year old child who has slightly better impulse control than most other six-year olds, but still has urges to pick things up in the store. Last Tuesday she put something into the shopping cart without my permission or authorization. When we were checking out of the store she grabbed a Snickers bar. I saw her and I explained to her that we were going to get sushi and that we might get some candy after our lunch. I always watch my daughter when we are in stores. I focus my gaze uniquely on her, not because I understand the impulse control of a child, but I know the ramifications of her taking a babble or nicknack or piece of candy without paying for it. My Mom And Dad Raised Me To Be Afraid, Like They Were. This is what it means to be the son… Read More »Black Father In The Age Of Trump
A Couple Mind Blowers In 1982 President Regan declared the “War on Drugs” however at this time only 2% of the American population thought drugs were a problem. Fast-Forward to 1986 and we have a new drug on the scene called Crack. The nightly news shows burnt out cities with black men getting arrested, doing perp walks, for crack. Reagan now starts bribing police departments with grants and military hardware. We now have the rise of SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams.These teams were designed for hostage rescues, but are instead used to serve no-knock warrants. It some jurisdictions the use of SWAT teams went from 2 times a year to over 392 uses of them. All to stop the spread of crack. 95% of all Americans when told to imagine a drug dealer between in the 90s they thought of young black male. Now here comes the mind-blower: more white people as a number and a percentage than blacks due and more white people sell crack as a percentage and as a whole. See The New Jim Crow for more information on this subject. Now, as a black man, learning this blew my mind. However, was this in some obscure blog, or a journal, or a crap website? No, this was actual data that was presented in a United States Supreme Court case that the SCOTUS agreed was actually true and correct. The case is Armstrong v. United States of America. Yet, because of the sentencing differences between crack… Read More »A Couple Mind Blowers
