Will Venus Williams be found liable in a fatal car crash that claimed a man’s life?
Venus Williams, regarded as one of the all-time best professional women’s tennis players in America is no stranger to the Grand Slam on the court –and on the road.
Williams was involved in a two-car California car accident that sent an elderly man to the hospital with head trauma and after two weeks in ICU he died of his injuries. His wife, who was the driver of the other car, was also taken to the hospital with broken bones and other injuries but survived.
The University of Southern California reported recently on an alarming study released by the University of California San Francisco. The study showed that over the past 17 years, bicycle accidents have cost America more than $237 BILLION, and that the cost of those accidents is only going up. Some of the study’s most alarming findings include:
- The frequency of bicycle accidents has increased by 120% over the course of the study
- The costs of treating injuries from bicycle accidents has increased by 136%
- Older bicycle riders are increasingly more likely to be injured while cycling than younger riders
- Accidents involving both bicycles and automobiles are increasing,

Must those involved in car accidents stay at the scene?
An aerospace engineering student experienced flight via a California motorcycle accident. But unlike in space, we don’t have zero gravity on Earth. And his landing was particularly rough.

With these types of numbers, it’s natural to wonder what duties cruise lines owe to their passengers.
