Are dangerous products being kept under wraps from consumers?

According to one report, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is prevented, by law, from disclosing the manufacturer and names of dangerous products that many consumers in Virginia and across the nation have in their home. One prime example is the Fisher-Price Rock and Play Sleeper. While the sleeper has since been recalled, 32 infants died due to the defective product. According to the CPSC, it knew that the sleeper was causing fatalities as far back as 2009, one decade before the sleeper was taken off store shelves.

Who may sue after a wrongful death?

Wrongful deaths are often preventable tragedies that rob spouses of their significant others, children of their parents, and loved ones of those who they hold most dear. Under Virginia law, compensation can be sought when an individual's death is wrongful due to an act of negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing. However, not everyone who is harmed by the loss of a wrongful death victim has the right to sue for damages.

What is post-concussion syndrome?

A concussion is a serious and often traumatic brain injury that can significantly impact a victim's health. Individuals who suffer blows to the head in car accidents and other personal injury events should always seek medical attention to ensure that they have not sustained life-threatening harm. However, even a mild or moderate concussion may seriously affect the long-term health of a Virginia accident victim.

Distance, distractions, and dangerous truck accidents

Virginia roads and highways are often traveled by commercial drivers who, in their rigs and massive trucks, carry the goods that residents want and need. Trucks and their drivers are integral parts of the cycle of commerce in the United States, and through trucking many businesses are able to deliver their products to stores, customers, and wholesalers. Although trucking is an important means of transport for retail and commercial items, it can be a dangerous practice when truck drivers fail to meet their duties of care.
