Fatal Virginia truck accident results in deaths of three victims

Truck accident victims should be familiar with the different resources and protections available to them. Virginia authorities are investigating a recent fatal truck accident. The truck accident occurred between a tractor trailer and a passenger vehicle. Those investigating the truck accident reported that the semi truck was travelling southbound when it crossed the center line and struck a passenger vehicle traveling northbound. The semi truck overturned due to the force of the truck accident.

Sufficient products warnings are oftentimes required for safety

This blog recently discussed the potential harm dangerous and defective products can cause children. Children can be harmed by products in a variety of different ways, including because of insufficient warnings. Even when a product has been properly manufactured and designed without any flaws, if it is without sufficient warnings, it may be considered defective. A product can be considered defective if it fails to provide sufficient warnings concerning foreseeable risks of harm that could have reasonably been avoided with sufficient warnings.

Dangerous children's products should be reported

Doctors regularly caring for children are some of the first to become aware of defective children's products. Pediatricians can report concerns they may have related to product safety which is one method of protecting children from potentially dangerous children's toys. Physicians, consumers and parents all have the ability to report dangerous or defective children's products or toys to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Distracted drivers present a danger on the roadways

Victims of car accidents commonly face struggles associated with paying for medical bills, especially while the ability of many victims to work may be frustrated by the injuries they suffered in the car accident as well as challenges associated with recovering physically and mentally from a car accident. When victims have been harmed by a car accident that resulted from the negligence of another party, the negligent party, such as a negligent driver, may be financially liable to compensate the victim for their damages.
