Legal remedies available to those injured by a defective product

It can come as a shock to realize that a product that you purchased and used, thinking it was safe for its marketed purpose, caused injury, harm or illness to you or a loved one. Unfortunately, harm resulting from an unsafe or defective product is all too common.

Tragic rear-end collision results in death of man

Because rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of car crashes, many people think they are not as serious as other types of collisions, such as a head-on collision. However, a rear-end collision can result in serious injury or even death in many cases, depending on the sequence of events after the initial crash. Many car accidents have a domino-effect, which can end up resulting in a serious accident that involves several vehicles.

Virginia schools buy new helmets to prevent risk of brain injury

More and more research has surfaced lately regarding the dangers of trauma to the head. Head injuries are common concerns for children, the elderly, athletes and those involved in car accidents or other serious falls. A brain injury can be an incredibly debilitating injury that often requires extensive treatment and long-term care, especially if symptoms go unnoticed and treatment is delayed for a significant period of time. For this reason, many coaches and sports teams are doing what they can to reduce the risk of a head injury occurring in the first place.

Property owners may be liable to trespassers in some cases

Most Virginia property owners want to be the ones to decide who can come onto their property and when. However, many property owners must also deal with the possibility or risk of trespassers. When a trespasser enters a person's property and is injured by a dangerous condition, it's possible for the property owner to be held liable for damages under the legal theory of premises liability. These cases are relatively rare, however. The key questions in determining whether the property owner will be held liable concern the likelihood or frequency of trespassing.
