Sharing and Caring About What Happens in Aptos

Aptos, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2014

A group of Aptos residents have worked to create a new online publication for people who live, work, or play in the coastal California town of Aptos. The online resource is known as AptosCommunityNews.org, and the site has quickly become the most popular source for news about Aptos, California.

Aptos feels like a small town, but theres a lot going on here, relates Sebastian Frey, a member of the Aptos Chamber of Commerce and one of the sites founders. Mr. Frey continued, Its spread out geographically, from the beaches, to the farmland and to the mountains, and there are all kinds of nice activities that a lot of people just dont know about, because they arent well-publicized. The new web site will help people discover more about their town.

The web site features a community calendar, breaking news of interest specifically to the Aptos community, and a host of information regarding the various neighborhoods, events, restaurants, schools, shopping, and recreation/leisure opportunities that the area offers.

In particular, the site is dedicated to tracking a number of projects which are underway that will affect the quality of life for Aptos residents. These projects include, but are not limited to, the Aptos Village redevelopment, the expansion of the Rancho del Mar shopping center, the widening of California Highway 1, and the Santa Cruz Rail Trail, among others.

According to Mr. Frey, Aptos has a timeless quality about it, which is something that residents and visitors alike really treasure. But the pace of change is accelerating, and the Aptos of the near future may be much different than its recent past. We hope the web site will serve to get more people involved in shaping the changes which are coming, so together we can create a better community that really works for all the stakeholders.

Interested parties are invited to use the web site, join, and participate at http://AptosCommunityNews.org.

Orange County Personal Injury Lawyer Dan Carlton Comments on Report about Tour Bus Accident Resulting in 10 Injuries

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2013

Irvine, California personal injury lawyer Dan Carlton said the next several weeks may be a difficult time for victims of a recent crash involving a tour bus headed to a casino in Southern California.

The bus accident, which occurred near Temecula, resulted in injuries to 10 people, according to an NBC 4 report (Tour Bus Crashes on Way to Southern California Casino, Sept. 2).

According to NBC 4, the driver told California Highway Patrol officers that he noticed a brake problem before the bus crashed into a ditch. The accident is under investigation, according to the report.

Injuries from bus accidents should not be taken lightly, said Carlton, who represents victims of negligence and families who lost loved ones in accidents. Its critical for victims to seek medical attention immediately and continue to follow up with their doctors. What might seem like a minor injury might get worse with time.

Carlton said bus accident victims and their families have legal rights.

While this particular incident is under investigation, in general a bus company has a duty of care to its passengers, Carlton said. This means they must check to make sure brakes, tires, lights and all equipment is functioning properly. And they also must keep records of bus maintenance. If an accident occurs, a company might be held legally responsible for the victims injuries if a mechanical problem is found to be a contributing factor.

NBC 4 reported that the bus was carrying 19 people on Sunday night when it crashed on its way to Pauma Casino, about 50 miles north of San Diego. The bus, unable to stop while entering a curve, slammed into a guard rail and then hit trees and a boulder on the right side of the road, according to NBC 4. Police said they are planning a full investigation to determine if the bus crash was due to mechanical error or driver error, NBC 4 reported.

NBC 4 reported that details of the injuries were not immediately available, but police said people had various complaints of pain.

Carlton said victims injured in bus accidents may be entitled to compensation for their losses. A personal injury lawyer can help them pursue monetary support and closure, Carlton said. The attorney for a bus accident victim also can help send a message that negligence by bus companies will not be tolerated. Companies need to be held accountable when they fail in their duty of care to passengers.
