Car collides with moped resulting in injuries and damages

Residents in West Virginia often see motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles frequenting the roadways during the warmer months. It is becoming more and more common for motorists to share the roadways with smaller vehicles, which makes it especially important for the drivers of the larger vehicles to be fully aware of their surroundings. Failing to check their mirrors and double check their blind spots before making a lane change or a turn could lead to a motorcycle accident. These small vehicles often cannot stand up to the impact of larger vehicles, and collisions often result in injuries and damages.

Drivers who fail to uphold the standard duty of care while driving put everyone at risk, not just other drivers and passengers but everyone and everything in the vicinity. Parked cars, bystanders or even buildings could become involved in a car crash. The breadth of the destruction might increase the amount of damages, injures and a negligent driver's liability.

Even what a position is not inherently dangerous, workers should always be aware of the risks that could preset themselves in their line of work. Furthermore, employers should note these potential dangers so they help guard against work injury. Proper training and safety gear can reduce these risks, but they do not always prevent a fatal work accident from occurring.

Unsecured truckload injures, kills in West Virginia accident

It is rather difficult to travel on the roads in West Virginia without encountering a semi-truck or tractor-trailer. These massive vehicles are able to carry large loads and often transport them a long distance. Whether they are making a short or long distance shipment, truck drivers have numerous responsibilities. In addition to driving safely and avoiding fatigue, truck drivers need to ensure the safety of the vehicle itself. That means ensuring the truck is operating properly, the tires are in good condition and the load on the truck is secured. Failure to do so could result in a serious truck accident.
