West Virginians call for stricter hit-and-run driving laws

A motorcycle accident can be extremely serious and can have lifelong effects on an individual. Because of the size of a motorcycle and lack of protection, many motorcycle accidents result in brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones, sprains, road rash and more. The monetary and emotional costs can be high.

Officials work to decrease large truck accidents

Auto accidents can be extremely dangerous. When one or more trucks is involved in an accident the mere size, weight and the speed of the vehicle can make these accidents increasingly dangerous. Truck accidents on West Virginia roadways can result in serious bodily harm, and sometimes death. Even when injury isn't present immediately after the accident, conditions can develop over time.

Widow blames company, driver fatigue on fatal truck accident

Last July, a 26-year-old Nutter Fort, West Virginia, man was killed in a truck accident after working a 22-hour shift. Driving back to their company headquarters at the end of the day, he was one of the crew in a company truck and his co-worker fell asleep at the wheel. His widow recently amended a 2011 wrongful death suit against her husband's company. The suit now personally names the company CEO and president, holding her strictly liable.

The day, aimed at finding ways to decrease accidents caused by texting while driving (TWD), was organized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US's state attorney general, and the Ad Council.

Critic wary of highly addictive pharmaceutical drugs

When new drugs come out on the market consumers assume that the safety of the drug has been thoroughly tested. It's easy to forget that doctors and the pharmaceutical industry make a great deal of money off pharmaceutical drug sales. When people in the medical community and the pharmaceutical industry are anxious to market a new prescription drug, it sometimes leads to product liability cases after consumers are injured by the product.
