Are all truck accidents the fault of truck drivers?

An 18-wheel truck that is loaded to capacity with goods may weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Compared to a smaller personal vehicle which may only weigh 3,000 pounds a truck is a massive thing that is both difficult to get up to speed and difficult to stop once it is rolling along. Fairfax residents who have seen big rigs and other large vehicles in action understand the power that they exude when they are rumbling down the road.

The financial burden of living with a brain injury

Brain injuries can vary in terms of severity and prognosis. While some people in Virginia who suffer from a brain injury may be able to return to their normal lives shortly after suffering their harm, others may spend the rest of their lives trying to relearn the basic skills that they mastered in their childhoods. As such, it is important for readers of this Fairfax personal injury law blog to understand that the costs of recovering from and living with a brain injury can greatly fluctuate.

Speed a factor in deadly Virginia car crash

A historic community in Virginia was recently rocked by a violent three-vehicle crash that killed two people and sent many more to local hospitals. The crash occurred when one vehicle, which law enforcement officials report was speeding, apparently collided with a second vehicle at an intersection and pushed the then-two vehicle crash into a third vehicle. The driver of the speeding car was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident and died. The driver of the first vehicle hit was wearing a seatbelt, but also died as a result of the collision.

Premises liability lawsuits can compensate injury victims

Although online shopping and advancing telecommunications have made it easier to live a home-based life, it is the rare person who can exist without ever stepping foot outside of their residence. Fairfax residents work, shop and play in locations near and far to their houses, and when they leave the places that they call home they must trust that the entities that own and operate the stores, restaurants, offices, schools and other businesses and buildings they frequent are maintaining them in safe condition. Most of the time individuals can do what they need to do outside of their homes without encountering dangers. However, in unfortunate instances victims of premises liability accidents suffer serious harm due to hazardous conditions on another's property.
