What types of distractions contribute to teen car accidents?

Distracted driving is dangerous. Without a driver's full attention on the task at hand, a driver cannot react quickly to an obstacle in the road, to another driver's change of lanes or to unclear weather conditions.

There are many potential causes of a truck accident. From speeding drivers, to unsafe road conditions, to defective auto parts, there is no single source behind a Virginia truck accident.

Mature drivers pose risks for serious car accidents

Drivers of all ages populate Virginia's highways. From young teen drivers who have just received their driver's licenses, to elderly drivers who have been driving for decades, there is a wide variety of drivers on the road at any one time.

While experience can be beneficial behind the wheel, elderly or mature drivers who have been driving for many years nonetheless may have characteristics that may make them more likely to contribute to dangerous car accidents.

How do you prove fault in a products liability claim?

It is obvious that we are a society that relies heavily on consumer goods. Everyday, residents in Virginia and elsewhere use and require consumer goods to get through his or her day. Whether it's a household item, a motor vehicle or a tool, these items tend to make life much easier. While these products are highly beneficial, they unfortunately pose some risks to consumers. If there is a defect during the manufacturing, retail or marketing process, this could cause much harm to the consumer.
