Proving negligence after a truck accident

Even though many truck accidents, especially those involving a collision with a smaller passenger vehicle, are severe and catastrophic, this does not necessarily mean that the other party involved in the accident who suffered damages as a result of the accident will be able to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit. There are many different potential causes for a truck accident beyond a negligent or unqualified truck driver. For this reason, if someone is injured during a truck accident and believes the other party to be at fault for the accident, he or she must prove the negligence of some party that has legal liability.

We are your allies if you have suffered a brain injury

A head injury is often one of the most significant life events that a person can experience. Suffering a brain injury is often completely unexpected and can occur numerous different ways: a fall, a car accident, other forms of impact, or negligence in medical care and treatment. Brain injuries have the potential to be so devastating because they can result in serious emotional issues, loss in cognitive abilities, personality changes, coma, memory loss, seizures or even death.

Is there premises liability if I allow hunting on my land?

In many rural areas throughout Virginia, there are people who own large areas of land. Some of these landowners may wish to allow hunting by sportsmen on their private property but may worry about the risk of being held liable for damages in a premises liability lawsuit. However, for the responsible landowner, there are laws that protect the landowner while facilitating allowing access to the property for hunters.

Car accident injuries cause man's death

Car accidents are common throughout Virginia, but the frequency at which they occur do not make them any less serious. In many cases, a person injured in a car accident does not fully even recognize that he or she is injured until later that day or even several days later after the adrenaline wears off. In the worst cases, car accident injuries that do not appear life-threatening initially can even result in someone's death, as was the case recently with a Virginia man.
