Defective Roadways Cause Accidents Too

Negligent actions by drivers are the most common causes for road accidents. However, some accidents aren't the fault of drivers. Sometimes defective roadways can cause drivers to lose control thereby increasing the risks of motor vehicle collisions.

Platooning Trucks are Hitting the Highway

Truck industry executives are furthering the advance of driver-assistance technology--called platooning--rather than promoting driverless trucks, says Daimler Trucks North America CEO, Roger Nielsen, speaking at a press conference at the American Trucking Association Management Conference and Exhibition, according to Transport Topics.

Who is liable in a commercial truck crash and why?

All too often in West Virginia, we see commercial trucks, also referred to as semi's or 18 wheelers, create dangerous situations for other motorists. When a commercial truck crashes, it can cause a tremendous amount of damage to other vehicles and serious injuries to other motorists and passengers. While truck drivers are sometimes at fault, the legal responsibility for these crashes is not always placed solely on the driver. The question is who are the potential responsible parties when a large commercial truck is involved in a collision that causes serious injury? The answer, as it turns out, depends on the conditions leading up to a crash.

Chandeliers and fans are among dangerous household products

Homeowners in West Virginia may be alarmed to learn that a couple of products in their homes may pose hazards for them and their families. The first of the dangerous household products is a chandelier. The second product is a ventilation fan.

Logging truck accident takes the life of passenger car driver

Determining who was at fault for an accident can be problematic, depending on the condition of the scene and the vehicles in its aftermath. Accident reconstruction teams and other investigators may be needed in order to figure out the how and why. The West Virginia State Police will most likely need to send in these types of experts in order to decipher what happened in a recent logging truck accident.

Truck accident may cause severe injuries, death

Vehicle accidents involving semi trucks are particularly dangerous due to the sheer size of these trucks. Their large size can make these trucks difficult to maneuver, and cars and other smaller vehicles may have a hard time maneuvering around these large vehicles as well. A truck accident in West Virginia can quickly lead to severe injuries and even death, depending on the nature of the accident.

Truck accident can happen due to negligent driving

Driving near a truck may incite fear in a motorist because of the size of a big rig. A truck accident can easily happen when a truck driver fails to pay attention to the road and the other motorists nearby. This, unfortunately, can lead to injuries or even a fatal accident.
