Understanding drug recalls and why they are issued

At some point in time, Virginia residents are prescribed medications. Whether it is for a simple ailment or a serious disease, patients across the nation rely on these prescription medications to heal or treat them. However, mistakes can be made when prescription drugs enter the market, resulting in ineffective or dangerous products to land in the hands of consumers.

Helping you assert your rights following a truck accident

Sharing the road with large commercial trucks is commonplace for motorists in Virginia. While these massive vehicles play an important role in intrastate and interstate commerce, commercial trucks also generate many dangers on the roadways. Trucking companies rely on truck drivers to make timely and safe shipments and deliveries, but this does not always occur. Due to long hauls, overworked truckers and fatigued truck drivers, many errors could be made behind the wheel. This could easily be the cause of a serious or even fatal truck crash.

What damages are recoverable in a wrongful death claim?

The loss of a loved one is a very challenging event to overcome. No matter the age of the person, when a loved one is suddenly taken from you because of the negligence of another party, this can be a shocking, traumatic and overwhelming time. While it might seem impossible to move past this tragedy, it is possible to process this event and move forward. While no amount of money can bring a loved one back, a compensation award could help offset the damages caused by the event.

Taking a detailed look at head traumas

Just as there are many types of accidents, there are a wide variety of injuries that could be suffered in an accident. While some of these are deemed minor, others are labeled as severe. Residents in Virginia do not expect to be involved in an accident, and they certainly do not expect to deal with the injuries in the aftermath. Head trauma is one of the worst types of injuries and accident victim could suffer. This type of injury has the tendency to require a lengthy recovery time and much medical attention. In some cases, a victim never recovers, requiring ongoing medical care for the rest of his or her life.

Advocating for your rights following a brain injury

While some accidents result in minor bumps and bruises, others leave an accident victim suffering life-altering injuries. Much like no one expects to be involved in a severe accident, no one expects to suffer a serious injury like a brain injury. Trauma to the head presents many challenges and even some losses to victims. An injured party could lose cognitive abilities, the ability to walk and even the ability to care for him or herself. Thus, it is important to understand what rights a victim has to overcome these losses.
