Wegmans hummus recalled due to plastic found in product

When we purchase goods from the store, we expect to get what we pay for. Unfortunately, mistakes and errors can be made. This can cause a seemingly harmless product to suddenly turn dangerous. This ultimately can result in a consumer suffering serious harms. And, if these harms are due to the defects caused by a manufacturer, designer or retailer, it is possible to seek recourses for the resulting losses.

What is the recovery process for a minor brain injury?

When accidents happen, a victim could suffer a wide range of injuries. When a head is impacted, trauma to the head can be severe. In other cases, a minor hit or blow to the head could cause harm to one's head. This could result in a minor brain injury, such as a concussion. While this is a minor brain injury, a concussion could effect a Virginian for some time, impacting one's ability to socialize, hold down a job and lead a normal life. Because of this, it is important to consider the steps it takes to recover from such an injury.

Causes and symptoms of a TBI

When Virginians thinks of a head trauma, they think of a severe injury that effects an accident victim in many ways. In many cases, a head injury is the most severe injury one could endure, making it vital that one not only takes the time to heal and recover, but also understand the cause. When a negligent party is the cause of an accident, a victim suffering a brain injury could seek compensation for this severe injury.

Truck accidents

Nowadays, individuals in Virginia and elsewhere rely on shopping for things on-line. It is not only convenient to go to the store on the weekends or after work, making on-line shopping one's go-to for most things that they need. Because of this, goods are shipped all across the state and nation, and the trucking industry is relied on to get these deliveries to their final destination on a timely basis. While large trucks, such as semi-trucks and tractor-trailers is an efficient way to ship goods, this can cause many risks on the roadways. When a truck driver or trucking company does not follow federal trucking regulations, this could be the cause of a serious and even fatal truck crash.

Why are there fatigued truck drivers on the roadways?

Virginians have done it at one point or another: push through a task when they are tired. The days get busy and our schedules get overloaded, but there is a difference between working on a school assignment or a work project late into the night and driving through the night to make a delivery or shipment. Unfortunately, truck drivers are often tasked with traveling long distances, meaning they drive long hours. This creates a great concern for fatigued driving. Although federal trucking regulations address this, they unfortunately do not prevent it from occurring and causing truck crashes.
