Fatal car crash claims life of pedestrian college student

The roads of Roanoke City and throughout the state can be dangerous for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. While the majority of people on the road take caution and follow the law, there are inevitable incidents that can lead to injuries and even death. These can happen for a variety of reasons. When there is a fatal accident, the family left behind will have to move forward and deal with the loss of a loved one. It's important that they know what to do in such an incident's aftermath.

Knowing how to pursue legal action after a truck accident

When a truck accident occurs in Virginia, those who were affected by it will have a great deal to consider. If there are serious injuries involved there will likely be considerable medical costs from a hospital stay, and potentially more with rehabilitation and perhaps long-term care. With a fatality, the family who lost a loved one will have to live their lives without a parent, a spouse, a sibling or a child. Trucks are a major presence on the nation's landscape and provide goods, services and jobs. That, however, doesn't alter the fact that their massive size makes a crash involving a commercial vehicle a major risk for injuries and death.

Defective auto part recall based on location called into question

For people in Virginia, a product recall of automobiles is something to keep a close eye on. These problems that are attributed to a defective auto part or an automobile design defect can cause severe injuries and even fatalities. Because the safety of a vehicle hinges on the functionality of the car parts, any national recall - even one that is limited to certain geographical regions - must be watched closely by people across the entire country.

Fatal car crash claims life of 57-year-old woman

A fatal accident can occur in Roanoke City or throughout the state at any time. One of the worst feelings a family can have is to receive that phone call or knock at the door informing them that their loved one has been the victim in a fatal car crash. Unfortunately, these wrongful death incidents happen frequently and without warning. It's important for those who are affected by them to know what to do in their immediate aftermath.

After fatal accidents, families left struggling

Summer is fading away and the cool winds of fall are blowing into Roanoke. Soon rain and cold weather will cause slippery conditions to occur on local roads and highways. While many Virginia drivers know how to safely travel on hazardous roads, others fail to take sufficient precautions and cause dangerous car accidents.
