Former politician Ann Day killed in car accident

West Virginia residents who follow politics might not be familiar with Ann Day but have probably heard of her sister, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. The Day family and others in Arizona are mourning the loss of former state senator Ann Day after she was killed in a motor vehicle accident May 7.

Head injuries from playground accidents rising

According to a study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many children are being treated for concussions sustained as a result of playground injuries. In 2013, more than 29,000 children visited emergency rooms to be treated for serious head injuries including concussions. In 2001, the number was 18,000. Researchers said the steep rise began in 2009.

Safety is important to motorcycle riders

With warmer temperatures coming on, more West Virginia motorcyclists will be hitting the roads. As ridership increases, two- and four-wheel drivers need to be aware of each other. This can cut down on the number of injuries and fatalities that often result from motorcycle accidents.

Self-driving cars and the auto insurance industry

West Virginia residents may be aware that some bold claims have been made about the impact that autonomous vehicle technology and self-driving cars will have on road safety. A senior Volvo executive recently said that the Swedish car maker hopes to virtually eliminate fatalities in its vehicles by 2020, and companies like Tesla and Google point to accident statistics revealing that the vast majority of auto crashes involve human error of one sort or another.

FMSCA releases 2014 crash data

A collision with a large truck on a West Virginia road can result in serious injuries that are sometimes fatal. The Federal Motor Carrier has released its report covering 2014 commercial vehicle crashes, and it shows that while fatal accidents were down from the previous year, the number of crashes that caused injuries that were not fatal increased.

Accident that killed woman in store ruled unforeseeable

Property owners in West Virginia and around the country owe a duty of care to visitors, but that does not mean that they can be held legally responsible for every accident that occurs on the premises they own or occupy. Premises liability lawsuits, just like other negligence claims, often hinge on questions of foreseeability as building owners or tenants argue that they should not be held accountable for accidents that no amount of maintenance or planning could have prevented.
