Driver faces charges in fatal Virginia truck accident

This blog recently discussed the dangers of truck accidents and their serious impact on victims. A recent fatal truck accident in a Virginia community a couple of hours northeast of the Roanoke area is being investigated by authorities. The truck accident involved a semi truck and passenger vehicle. Investigators reported that a semi truck hauling sand crossed over the center line as it was traveling south and struck a passenger vehicle heading north. The force of the truck accident resulted in the tractor trailer overturning.

Coping with brain injuries

Many difficulties can arise from a brain injury, including behavior and emotional problems, that may be challenging for victims and family members to cope with.

Motor vehicle recalls have been in the news a significant number of times recently. When a defective motor vehicle has caused harm to victims, it may be the result of defective air bags, defective seat belts, poor crashworthiness, poor rollover strength design or the result of some other auto defect. It is possible that the manufacturer of the defective vehicle or auto part may be liable to compensate the victim harmed by the defect for the victim's damages.
