Oh Deer! Hunting and personal injury

Especially during the autumn and winter months, hunting is a popular sport in West Virginia. Hunters must obtain a license and follow myriad of rules that define things like which weapons are acceptable for hunting, the seasons for each species, bag limits, locations and other important regulations. Even experienced hunters can be injured in the woods, and a recent incident provides a sobering reminder that personal injury is a realistic scenario. 

Coal mine accidents remembered

West Virginia is full of hard-working coal miners, and some of them can trace their family's history in the industry back for over a hundred years. Generations of Mountaineers have spent countless hours underground, facing dangerous conditions and long-term health problems to make a living and provide for their families. Sometimes, coal mine accidents are so terrible that the stories are told for centuries. 

Winter weather and motor vehicle accidents

The holiday season is in full swing, and West Virginia residents may find themselves running here and there to complete last minute preparations. Even if drivers take extra care, the winter months historically carry a higher risk of motor vehicle accidents. Extended hours of darkness and inclement weather may be contributing factors. 

Coal mine accidents still adding up as year draws to close

As the majority of Americans took a pause to gather and focus their thoughts on all there was to be thankful for, one family and the small West Virginia community where they live was given cause to mourn. Coal mine accidents claim lives each year, and 2020 has been no exception. With six deaths nationwide already recorded for the year, the death of a 20-year-old man brings the total to seven as December arrives.
