Many truck drivers travel through Virginia during nighttime hours. Truck drivers may travel on overnight shifts or keep odd working hours to avoid heavy traffic during the day, which may be convenient for them, but can result in the major problem of truck driver fatigue.
Virginians may often hear on the news about recalled products. As this blog reported in a previous post, product recalls are on the rise, and include everything from vehicles to food products, as well as dangerous furniture, as also reported recently by this blog. Though Virginians may readily receive information regarding dangerous products via news sources, they may not know what to do if they themselves are affected by a dangerous product.
When there is a car accident in Virginia, drivers are expected to stop, exchange insurance information, and render aid if it is necessary. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, some drivers choose to depart the scene and turn a crash into a hit-and-run accident. When this happens and there are injuries and/or fatalities, those who have been affected by a hit-and-run have the right to seek to be compensated through a car accident claim. Understanding how to move forward with such a lawsuit is important though, as strategy is often key to putting forth a convincing claim.
After tragic and deadly recent events, a furniture company has issued a product recall that could have a widespread impact, both in Virginia and nationwide. Ikea has recalled 29 million dressers and chests due to the potential for consumer death. The dressers have been reported to tip over easily, which has resulted in serious injury and even death for children.
