Alleged negligence at Captain D's leads to personal injury claim

A West Virginia woman has filed a premises liability lawsuit against a local Captain D's after slip-and-fall accident. The personal injury claim alleges that an icy parking lot caused her to fall, resulting in injuries to her hip, leg and head. The plaintiff asserts that the restaurant was negligent by failing to provide a safe environment for patrons. 

Personal injury claim an option after a slip-and-fall accident

West Virginia residents who have been injured because of circumstances beyond their control may not understand that they could have a valid personal injury claim. It can be daunting to face a legal process, even if an injury has led to medical bills, missed work and other consequences. Instead of suffering through the aftermath alone, injured parties and families may gain by seeking assistance from a personal injury attorney in order to better understand their options for financial recovery. 

Motor vehicle accidents may be related to poor road conditions

When road conditions are poor, it can increase the risk of motor vehicle accidents, especially in bad weather conditions. A recent traffic incident on Route 62 in Putnam County has caused local residents to wonder if road conditions along the busy stretch of road has increased the risk of motor vehicle accidents. West Virginia law enforcement has stated that, rather than road conditions, this particular accident was caused by weather.

Coal mine accidents: what do mine fatality statistics indicate?

Miners in West Virginia know the risk that they face every day for coal mine accidents. With proper training and safety protocols, the risk for coal mine accidents can decrease, but statistics indicate that numbers may not be decreasing at an appropriate rate. In 2014, there were two fewer deaths in the industry than occurred in the previous year. While this is certainly an improvement, coal mine accidents should be decreasing at a faster rate.
