How distracted driving causes motor vehicle accidents

It is no surprise to West Virginia readers that distracted driving is a serious problem. While texting is one of the most common types of distracted driving, there are other types of distraction that lead to an increased risk of motor vehicle accidents. Distracted driving is typically classified as any behavior that diverts a driver's attention while he or she is behind the wheel. 

Is a products liability claim an option for you?

A defective medical device can cause serious complications, resulting in continued health problems, infections or even death. When a West Virginia patient suffers because a defective or dangerous product was implanted into his or her body, it is entirely within one's rights to gain an understanding of the legal remedies available. A products liability claim may be an appropriate way for a victim -- or the surviving family of a deceased victim -- to recover financial losses associated with an extended recovery.

Should victims of coal mine accidents seek legal help?

When an accident happens at work, victims often assume that workers' compensation will cover all of their accident-related needs. While a claim can help a West Virginia victim and family recover financial losses, it is wise to seek legal help when facing the aftermath of coal mine accidents. With assistance, a victim and family has a greater chance of successfully recovering rightful recompense. 

Products liability claim option for victims of dangerous products

It is frustrating and overwhelming when an innocent West Virginia consumer suffers because of a dangerous product. When manufacturers fail to warn consumers of possible risks or mislabel products, victims may consider filing products liability claims in order to recover related losses. Recently, the FDA has released a warning to consumers regarding the risk of taking certain products that claim to enhance male sexual performance.

Dangerous roads may lead to motor vehicle accidents

After the death of their loved one, a West Virginia family is asking for authorities to make the busy Corridor G safer. The man was struck from behind while he was riding his bicycle home from work. He suffered fatal injuries. When pedestrians and cyclists are on busy roads, motor vehicle accidents are an all too common occurrence.
