Helping collect the workers' compensation benefits owed to you

For many West Virginia workers, especially those in the construction and mining industries, there is an element of risk attached to going to work every workday. Even though national and statewide initiatives have reduced the dangers in these fields, workers still get injured on the job.

The dangers of fatigued truck drivers

Driving while tired is a real danger for motorists in West Virginia. And while many drivers must travel well into the late night hours, it is important to understand the risks associated with drowsy driving. Truck drivers, due to their long travel routes, frequently travel during the night. Even though fewer motorists are on the road during the late night hours, the lives of other drivers and passengers are put at risk when fatigued truck drivers travel on the roadways.

One dead after head-on crash with 18-wheeler

West Virginia residents can barely travel down any major road without encountering a larger commercial truck. The important role these massive vehicles play in our society is evident; however, this does not negate the fact that semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks present countless risks to motorists. Their large size alone makes them prone to huge accident sites. Moreover, a truck accident is a collision that is likely to generate destruction, injuries and even deaths.

How common are motorcycle accidents in the U.S.?

Although summer has come and gone, the warm weather has not disappeared with the appearance of fall. This means that motorists will be able to keep their windows down or even enjoy a ride on a motorcycle. Therefore, motorists in West Virginia and other states across the U.S. should always prepare to share the road with motorcyclists. Failure to do so could mean colliding with a biker and causing a serious motorcycle crash.
