Did you know that in some states robots have legal rights? Under Pennsylvania law, autonomous delivery robots are permitted to travel on sidewalks, paths, and roads and are technically considered "pedestrians." This is one of the newest developments in the relationship between robots and humans. 

In Pennsylvania, these robots can travel up to 12 mph in a pedestrian area, 25 mph on the road, and carry a maximum of 550 pounds. The law took effect in January. Additionally, 11 other states that permit personal delivery robots to share streets with people, including Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin, and Washington, D.C. 

There are a few benefits in using these robots, including emission reductions through the reduction in large trucks on roadways. Still, as more states make way for autonomous vehicles and robot delivery services, infrastructure will need to follow. In 2017, engineers at MIT created an autonomous robot that used socially aware navigation, which taught the robot to follow the same patterns as humans.

July 4th brought a large number of firework injuries to hospitals

Call Zinda Law Group at (888) 560-4726 to receive your free consultation with one of our burn injury attorneys.

July 9, 2021

KDVR

It  was an incredibly busy holiday weekend for the doctors and nurses at UCHealth Burn Center on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado. This year brought even more burn injuries related to firework and grill accidents. 

“The number of burn injuries has gone substantially up compared what I’ve seen in years past,” said Dr. Patrick Duffy, a UCHealth burn surgeon. He said the last two years have been particularly busy.

“We were certainly involved with responding to a number of people who lost parts of fingers and hands and what not for having fireworks go off while they were holding them,” Duffy said.
Women wounded by illegal fireworks encourage safe celebrations this Fourth of July

One of the more common culprits of these burn injuries? Sparklers. 

“Even those simple little sparklers can wind up leading to severe burns that require surgery,” he said.

Doctors recommend not leaving children alone with fireworks, including sparklers, during the Fourth of July or any other holiday. 

“We also see a lot of people who wind up drinking and celebrating around campfires and falling into the campfires,” he said.

Propane grills were also responsible for quite a few injuries during the holiday weekend. 

“If people go to relight the grill without opening the lid and airing out that propane that’s filled there, essentially you are turning your propane grill into a giant bomb,” Duffy said.

He hopes as the summer continues that residents will take precautions and leave the fireworks to the professionals.

Abogados de Víctimas de Conductores Ebrios

LLAME AL (800) 863-5312 PARA HABLAR GRATIS CON UN ABOGADO DE CONDUCTORES EBRIOS

Todos hemos escuchado que si tomamos, no debemos ponernos detrás del volante, pero aun así son muchas las personas que se han visto involucradas en un accidente con un conductor ebrio; o peor aún, nosotros mismos hemos sido víctimas de accidentes con conductores ebrios.

Puede resultar frustrante enfrentar la realidad: hay personas que están dispuestas a arriesgar las vidas de otros y conducen bajo la influencia del alcohol, pero debemos tener en cuenta que el juicio deteriorado de los conductores en esta condición y su menor inhibición hacen que no piensen en las consecuencias de sus acciones. Independientemente de la intención de un conductor ebrio, las víctimas deberían considerar hablar con un abogado de accidentes con conductores ebrios para aprender acerca de sus opciones de recuperación.

Si usted o alguno de sus seres queridos han sido víctimas de un conductor ebrio, llame a los abogados de Zinda Law Group al (800) 863-5312 y recibirá una evaluación gratuita de su caso.

Estadísticas de conductores ebrios

Aproximadamente 28 personas mueren a diario en los Estados Unidos por culpa de un conductor ebrio, lo cual representa un promedio de una persona cada 52 minutos. Más de 10.000 estadounidenses murieron en 2019 por accidentes con conductores ebrios y más de un millón de conductores fueron arrestados por manejar bajo la influencia del alcohol o drogas ese mismo año. Un tercio de todas las muertes causadas por colisiones vehiculares se deben a conductores ebrios.

Las probabilidades de que usted termine involucrado en un accidente con un conductor ebrio son significativas y será muy útil que esté preparado para esa posibilidad. Por lo tanto, debería saber qué hacer si se ve involucrado en un accidente con un conductor ebrio y cuál sería la mejor forma de protegerse a usted y a los demás en este tipo de colisiones.

Tipos de accidentes con conductores ebrios

La manera en que el alcohol influye sobre un conductor es la causa diferentes tipos de colisiones que usted podría enfrentar. Independientemente del tipo de colisión que ocurra, las lesiones pueden llegar a ser graves. Si el conductor iba a exceso de velocidad, la colisión y sus lesiones podrían ser peores. Si logra entender los tipos de accidentes que pueden ocurrir al conducir ebrio, le será más fácil saber cómo responder si se encuentra en una situación similar con una persona intoxicada.

Colisiones traseras

Las personas que tienen una concentración de alcohol en la sangre (BAC, por sus siglas en inglés) en o sobre el nivel legal tendrán problemas para controlar la velocidad del vehículo y prestar atención al volante. Un conductor que no preste atención a los vehículos que disminuyen la velocidad frente a ellos será más propenso a golpear a otro por detrás. Adicionalmente, si el conductor tiene problemas controlando la velocidad del carro, esta persona podrá acelerar inadecuadamente y terminar chocando por detrás al vehículo que se esté moviendo a una velocidad normal y consistente.

Colisiones frontales

Los conductores ebrios también tienen dificultad para mantenerse en el carril correcto y controlar el vehículo. Por esto es que podría llegar a encontrarse conductores ebrios que pasan sobre la línea amarilla doble o que van en la dirección opuesta en una autopista o interestatal.

Si está en una autopista de dos carriles y se da cuenta de que el automóvil que viene hacia usted está en su línea, no debería intentar cambiar de carril a la izquierda para pasar al vehículo que se aproxima en dirección equivocada. Hay una posibilidad de que el conductor en el otro automóvil intente volver a su carril mientras que usted hace su maniobra. Lo mejor es frenar, sonar la bocina y hacer cambio de luces.

Accidentes con motocicletas

Siempre que hay una motocicleta involucrada en un accidente con un automóvil, las lesiones tienden a ser graves o fatales para el motociclista. Cuando está en un automóvil, existe una barrera entre usted, el asfalto y el otro conductor, existen bolsas de aire y otros dispositivos de seguridad, como los cinturones, que pueden mantenerlo a salvo. Como las motocicletas no tienen estas medidas, los motociclistas tienen mayor riesgo de morir debido a un conductor ebrio.

¿Qué debe hacer si ha tenido un accidente con un conductor ebrio?

Si ha tenido un accidente con un conductor que estaba bebiendo alcohol, hay cosas que debe hacer lo más rápido posible para conservar la fuerza de su caso. Un abogado de accidentes con conductores ebrios puede proceder a descubrir los detalles importantes para responder las preguntas legales que posiblemente ni siquiera sepan que existen.

Reportar el accidente

Debe reportar el accidente a la policía lo más pronto posible. Un oficial realizará una investigación y solicitará información a usted y al conductor ebrio. Una vez que el accidente se convierta en un registro público unos días más tarde, podrá solicitar una copia en línea y archivarla en su expediente del accidente.

También debería conservar su propio registro del accidente para asegurarse de que ha recogido la mayor cantidad de evidencia posible. Asegúrese de tener el nombre y la información de contacto de la persona que conducía en estado de ebriedad, además de la información de contacto de los testigos del accidente. Si es posible, debería tomar fotografías de la escena del accidente.

Buscar atención médica

Si está en una condición crítica, debería buscar ayuda médica de inmediato. Incluso si no nota lesiones aparentes, lo mejor será visitar a su médico en los días posteriores al accidente para que diagnostique y trate las lesiones que sostuvo en el accidente. Mantenga un registro de sus lesiones, de las facturas médicas y de rehabilitación que reciba y de sus salarios perdidos mientras estaba ausente del trabajo.

¿Cómo puede ayudarle un abogado de accidentes con conductores ebrios?

Un abogado de lesiones personales sabrá cómo investigar y presentar su caso con el objetivo de conseguirle la máxima compensación posible. Comenzando con la etapa de recopilación de evidencia, un abogado de accidentes con conductores ebrios descubrirá si la persona manejaba un vehículo comercial o si había recibido exceso de tragos en un bar o restaurante. Esto le ayudará a su abogado a determinar a quién demandar y cuánta compensación recibirá usted.

El abogado de lesiones le ayudará a introducir su caso con base en esta información. Luego, su abogado intentará negociar un acuerdo a su nombre. La mayoría de los casos llegan a un convenio antes de ir a juicio, pero si las otras partes no cooperan para indemnizarlo por los daños que le deben, puede que sea necesario que su abogado lo represente ante una corte. Podría tener derecho a daños económicos, incluyendo cuentas médicas y salarios perdidos por ausentarse del trabajo, y daños no económicos, como compensación por el dolor y sufrimiento que soportó tras el accidente con el conductor ebrio.

Previniendo los efectos destructivos de los conductores ebrios

Hay pasos que los estados toman y pasos que usted personalmente puede tomar para ayudar a prevenir los daños que hacen los accidentes con conductores ebrios. Los empleadores y profesionales de la salud pueden concientizar a sus empleados y pacientes acerca de los riesgos de conducir en estado de ebriedad y hacer pruebas para detectar comportamientos riesgosos, pues el 85% de los episodios de conductores ebrios son reportados por bebedores compulsivos.

¿Cómo lo protegen los estados?

Los estados protegen contra los efectos de la conducción en estado de ebriedad exigiendo un valor federal de BAC del 0.08% y estableciendo la edad mínima para ingerir alcohol. La edad mínima para beber en todos los Estados Unidos es 21 años. Los estados también tienen leyes de cinturones de seguridad vigentes para garantizar que todos los pasajeros estén seguros en sus asientos.

Los estados pueden aplicar estas leyes aumentando el uso de puntos de revisión de sobriedad y aumentando las penalidades para quienes incumplen con las leyes. Por ejemplo, hay estados que pueden exigir un bloqueador de ignición a quienes han sido sentenciados por beber y conducir. Los bloqueadores de la ignición son dispositivos que requieren una muestra del aliento del conductor para determinar si tiene un nivel de BAC legal antes de comenzar a conducir.

¿Cómo protegerse a sí mismo?

También existen pasos que puede tomar para garantizar que no solo cumpla con las leyes establecidas para protegerlo, sino que además garantiza que usted y sus pasajeros estén muy seguros. En primer lugar, puede evitar conducir después de beber si planifica las cosas con anterioridad. Cuando salga con un grupo, elijan un conductor designado que no beberá. Otra alternativa es llamar a un taxi, a un servicio de viajes compartidos o a un amigo para que lo lleve a casa.

En segundo lugar, si está preocupado porque es un bebedor compulsivo o tiene un amigo que lo es y esto podría causar un accidente, busque ayuda. Puede contactar a un médico o buscar asesorías para luchar contra este tipo de problemas compulsivos.

Por último, siempre debe usar su cinturón de seguridad mientras conduce y asegurarse de que sus pasajeros también lo hagan. Esta es la mejor manera en que puede protegerse a sí mismo y a quienes van con usted en el vehículo de otros conductores. No puede controlar las acciones de otros conductores en la carretera, pero sí puede controlar las condiciones en su vehículo.

Glenwood Canyon Closures May Continue Beyond 2021

Call (888) 449-1160 to speak with a Colorado car accident lawyer for free. 

Source: The Denver Post

Date: July 2, 2021

This summer, two mudslides have covered the highway in Glenwood Canyon in Colorado, and geology and engineering experts say the danger could persist. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, closures on I-70 are to protect other travelers, not to prevent potential natural disasters. While this news may be frustrating for drivers, these preventative measures may prevent countless car accidents. 

According to The Denver Post, "Dozens of basins ravaged by last summer’s Grizzly Creek fire drain down toward Interstate 70, and all it takes is a short burst of intense rain in the right spot — a downpour lasting as little as 15 minutes — to send a soupy mix of sludge and rocks flowing onto the highway."

Glenwood Canyon mudslide

The canyon's steep terrain and hard-to-access high basins that were burned in last year's fire make it impossible to make improvements to the basins. If the terrain were gentler, crews could dig it out and perform necessary construction. 
 
According to The Denver Post, "It will take years in some areas for soil burned during the fire to sprout new ground cover and recover normal levels of water absorbancy. Other agencies have evaluated the burn area and begun making plans to help along that process, which can take longer in areas where fire burned the landscape more severely." Until this work can be done, mudslides are still a huge risk to the area and could cause life-threatening car accident and motor vehicle collisions.

Four Dead, 159 Unaccounted for in Miami Condo Collapse

Call (888) 659-9392 for a free consultation with personal injury lawyers in florida

June 25, 2021

NPR

Early on Thursday, a condominium building in Miami, Florida collapsed, leaving at least four dead and over 150 people unaccounted for. 

"I woke up to learn that three bodies had been pulled from the rubble last night," Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava told ABC on Friday, adding to the one fatality that was announced on Thursday. "Devastating news for families waiting for any hope of survival." The three have not been identified.

Florida rescue workers are working diligently to recover people from the rubble. According to Florida authorities, the 12-story building involving some 55 units split apart and crumbled. They still aren't sure why the building collapsed. "I can tell you at this time they haven't found any evidence of foul play, so that is important for people to know," the mayor added. The police department plans a full investigation.

Fire crew members rescued 37 people on Thursday, and 35 of them were evacuated from balconies of the part of the building that was left intact. Many families are waiting for news of their missing relatives.

As search and rescue operations continue, questions abound as to why the Champlain Towers South complex near Miami, only 40 years old, partially collapsed on Thursday.

Charles Burkett, the mayor of Surfside, reported that the building has undergone minor construction work recently, including roof work. 

"But there's roof work being done on buildings all the time, and it's hard to imagine that that could have been the impetus for such a catastrophic collapse - I'm sure that it probably wasn't," he said.

Burkett added the building, which housed more than 136 units, "is not really an older building."

"There's no reason for this building to go down like that unless someone literally pulls out the supports from underneath, or they get washed out, or there's a sinkhole or something like that because it just went down."

Gas pump outage in Southern Colorado not due to lack of fuel supply

Call Zinda Law Group at (888)-939-3614 to receive your free consultation in Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS (KRDO) -- It's not a lack of fuel that has led to gas pump outages across Southern Colorado. Instead, it's a culmination of pipeline maintenance and a gas truck driver shortage, according to AAA Colorado.

Experts are asking drivers not to panic if they pull up to a gas station without available fuel.

"There is never any reason to panic when it comes to gas," Skyler McKinley, Regional Director of Public Affairs for AAA, told KRDO. "In any other year it's no problem, a pipeline comes offline we just spin up additional trucks, we deliver by truck, everything is all good at the pump."

Magellan Midstream Partners conducted maintenance and testing on its pipeline last week, which required the pipeline from Aurora to Fountain to be shut off, according to a spokesperson for the company. The impacted area of the pipeline was turned back on Saturday afternoon. A spokesperson for Magellan says it adequate supplies of gasoline and diesel fuel to meet the needs of customers in the region and that all operations at its pipeline are back to normal.

"Because of the coronavirus pandemic and the truck driver shortage cause therein, sometimes these pipelines come offline and we can't build up the infrastructure the same way we would. Meaning, we can't instantaneously solve the ripple effect caused by a pipeline shutdown. But we can solve it, it just takes a couple of days longer." McKinley explained.

While there are delays in getting gas to stations in Southern Colorado, McKinley stresses there is not a fuel supply shortage. He predicts Colorado and other states will experience similar issues.

"We're going to see this happen sporadically across the country, it's not unique to Colorado," McKinley explained. "It's this trucker shortage is the heart of it because that's really our backup infrastructure when our pipe infrastructure isn't working exactly as it was designed to," McKinley said.

AAA Colorado says there is "plenty of gas" flowing to Colorado, and the organization is asking drivers to not panic buy. McKinley said panic-buying is the only way our area would face a true gasoline shortage at this time. AAA Colorado does expect pump outages to continue in Southern Colorado through the week.

"There will be some hiccups, there will be some frustrations but there will not be chaos as long as you know people are working to solve these problems," McKinley said. "You should only be buying gas if you need gas, you shouldn't be buying more gas than you need."

Preventing Hot Car Deaths

Date: June 18, 2021 

Record-breaking heat has moved into Colorado this week, so now is the time to start checking your car for children and pets. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 886 children have died from being left in hot cars since 1998.Last year, 24 children died from heatstroke in hot cars. In Colorado, 7 children have died since 2001. The majority of hot car deaths (53%) happen because a caregiver forgot a child in their car.

About 46% of the time, a child was forgotten in a hot car when the caregiver meant to drop them off at a daycare or preschool. Nearly 75% of all children who are forgotten and die in hot cars are less than 2 years old. A car in 90-degree heat can reach an internal temperature of 124 degrees within 30 minutes.

Hot car temperature graph

After an hour, the car can reach an interior temperature of 133 degrees. To put that in perspective, the "keep warm" function on an oven is usually somewhere between 170 to 200 degrees.

KOAA Weather

So far this year, Colorado Springs has seen three days where it's been 90 degrees or warmer, and Pueblo has seen 12 days. On average, Colorado Springs sees 23 days at 90 degrees or higher, and Pueblo sees 72.

2020 was a particularly hot year with both Colorado Springs and Pueblo both seeing days with temperatures in excess of 90 degrees.
