Motorcyclists face a higher risk of motor vehicle accidents

A recent accident in West Virginia serves as a reminder of the increased risk of accidents faced by motorcycle riders and passengers. An Oakland man recently passed away as a result of the injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident. As is the case with many motorcycle collisions, the trauma sustained in the accident was severe and life-threatening, despite medical attention and emergency care. In motor vehicle accidents involving motorcycles, the person on the bike is at a high risk for severe injury.

West Virginia motor vehicle accidents: 1 gravely injured

It can be particularly infuriating and terrifying when to be involved in a motor vehicle accident, especially if it was the result of another individual's poor choices. When drivers make bad choices, they risk injury to themselves and others in or near the roadway. In many cases, these motor vehicle accidents are avoidable. This may have been the case in one recent crash that sent an individual to a West Virginia hospital.

Some West Virginia products liability cases might involve food

Many consumers in West Virginia and throughout the United States purchase produce in grocery stores or markets that have been imported from other countries. In a recent case, hundreds of people have reportedly fallen ill, and the suspected source of their illnesses has been linked to cucumbers. A manufacturer, sales agent or other member of the consumer supply chain can be held accountable in a products liability case when a consumer who has been injured or made ill from a purchased product chooses to file a legal claim in a civil court.
