Understanding dangerous design defects and proving them

On a daily basis, individuals in Virginia and elsewhere rely on certain products and goods to get through their day. This may be an oven to make a meal, a hairdryer to dry one's hair, a chainsaw to cut down a tree, a vacuum to clean the house or a vehicle to get around. Consumers expect these products to work as intended. Unfortunately, issues could occur, causing a product to not work properly or not work at all. In some cases, a defect in the product could cause the item to become dangerous, causing harm to the consumer.

How do you prove loss of companionship?

A fatal accident in Virginia is a tragic event. Not only is someone's life unexpectedly taken from them, but the deceased's loved ones are left dealing with this sudden loss. Whether it is a spouse, parent, sibling or child, it can be extremely difficult to cope with this loss. Even more so, the coping process can be delayed and complicated as loved ones are also addressing the financial losses associated with this wrongful death.

Updated guidelines for TBI management in children

As previously discussed, brain injuries are serious injuries and can take on different forms. The type of brain injury suffered is often dependent on the severity of the accident and how the head was impacted in the incident. No matter if a victim suffered a mild or severe head trauma, it is important to note that recovery time is needed for all types of traumatic brain injuries.

Understanding the difference between an open and closed TBI

An injury to the head is one of the worst and most severe injuries one could suffer. Therefore, when a head trauma occurs, victims require immediate medical attention. Even if it does not appear to be a serious matter initially, symptoms of a brain injury do not always show up at first. A brain injury does not always evolve the same way, making it imperative that head trauma victims understand whether or not he or she has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and what options are available to them.
