Causes of TBIs and signs a children has one

The brain is one of the most vital organs in our body. Any injury to it could mean serious mental and health issues. While many individuals in Virginia take extra precautions to guard against a serious injury to the head, the unfortunate reality is that accidents happen and could cause detrimental effects to the brain and body.

Traffic fatalities in Virginia up form last year

Driving safely is something drivers must do at all hours of the day. Whether it is during the early hours of the morning, a morning commute, rush hour traffic, evening hours or the late hours of the night, motorists have the duty to drive safe and follow the rules of the road. This is true even when traffic is low or no other vehicles can be seen on the roadways. By breaching this duty, a driver not only places their own life at risk but the lives of other motorists and passengers as well.

Can you recover pain and suffering for emotional distress?

We tend to respond to events in different ways. When something positive or exciting happens, we show clear signs of happiness. However, when something negative or sad happens, we exhibit signs of sadness or distress. When these events are more extreme, our emotions can be a very high or a very low. Take for example a fatal car accident. The loss of a loved one is a very traumatic event, causing surviving loved ones to endure much emotional pain.

How defects in warnings compare to other product defects

We all run errands and buy small and large items on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. While consumer goods are often looked at for their purposes, it is also important that consumers understand how to properly use them and what risks are associated with them. Most products have either a label on them or information in the packaging that details the product, how to use it, what risks are associated and what guarantees the manufacturer provides. However, even when warnings are provided, this does not mean they efficiently prevent injuries to consumers.

Helping you secure a favorable award in a products liability suit

With the major sales upon us this holiday season, it is likely that Virginia residents will make several personal and gift purchases over the next couple of weeks. New technology, household items, vehicles and other goods are heavily relied on these days; however, these products are not perfect. Sometimes they fail to work properly or not at all. While this could be a simple malfunction, it could also be associated with a defect. Although some product defects can be minimal and cause no harm to the consumer, other could result in serious and even fatal injuries.
