It is clear to drivers in West Virginia that there are numerous risks they may encounter on the roadway. These risks can be anything from weather to traffic to negligent drivers. When a driver fails to uphold the standard duty of care while operating a motor vehicle, they could cause a collision. There is a growing concern for distracted driving, and the rate of accidents involving distracted drivers continues to affect more and more victims.
Motorcyclists love to ride, but they put themselves at great risk out on the open road. Motorcycles are no match for other cars and SUVs, much less semi-trucks and tractor-trailers. While motorcyclists can take many safety precautions, there is no way to prevent other negligent or reckless drivers from causing an accident or injury.
General Motors has been under fire recently for a number of recall and safety issues, some of which have led to accident fatalities and injuries. The tragic stories detail just how car accidents are not always the result of a distracted driver or negligent driver; sometimes, manufacturers of the car itself may be responsible.
Summer is here, as evidenced by the warmer temperatures and the last days of school. As the weather continues to improve, more and more West Virginia residents may dust off their motorcycles to hit the road. A favorite pastime, or even lifestyle, for many can be especially dangerous if there are negligent drivers on the road. Motorcyclists are especially susceptible to injury when involved in an accident.
Following a serious car accident, the most important thing is to make sure the victim is restored to health. Depending on the severity of the injuries, the healing process can take quite some time. This can mean extensive medical or hospital bills and missed time from work. With the large number of hospital bills following an accident, most people begin to wonder how they will ever get paid.
