Who is liable when a truck spills hazardous material?


Recent train accidents in West Virginia have renewed debate over the safety of shipping hazardous goods on railways through the state. This is an important debate, but it shouldn't distract from the fact that other methods of moving flammable goods and dangerous chemicals aren't necessarily safe. Truck accidents are a very serious problem on the roadways of West Virginia and throughout the nation. These can cause not only injuries from a collision, but also injuries or other damages from spilled material.

How can West Virginia residents avoid ATV accidents?

West Virginia is a popular place for people who are interested in riding or operating all-terrain vehicles or ATVs. Locally, people use ATVs for traveling short distances and for recreation.

Most car accidents are preventable. In most cases, at least one driver was negligent in some way, whether by driving too fast or by not paying attention to weather or traffic conditions. Speeding on slippery winter roads, for example, increases the likelihood of a car accident, which is the leading cause of personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in the United States, including in West Virginia. These types of lawsuits seek to hold drivers responsible for any reckless action that led to an accident.

Birth injuries often get less attention than other types of medical errors due to inherent risks associated with the delivery process. Before the delivery, the mother is informed of complications that can put both her life and her child's life in danger. Health care professionals such as anesthesiologists, obstetricians, and nurses are present during delivery to ensure the safety of the baby. The medical professionals are expected to make critical decisions to prevent birth injuries, which can leave the baby with permanent damage.
