Road rage a serious threat to auto safety

Congestion on the roads of West Virginia and across the country has drivers in a high state of agitation, creating a potentially dangerous environment for road safety. A study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety suggests that almost four out of five U.S. motorists have shown signs of aggression, anger or other forms of road rage while driving in the past year.

Important points to remember after a car crash

Drivers on West Virginia roadways have to deal with the reality of car accidents on a regular basis. Those who are involved in the crashes do not expect them, though. Because of their unpredictable nature, it's important to prepare in advance as much as possible. Drivers should know what to do in the event one happens.

Study examines car accident fatality rates for children by state

West Virginia is one of the states with the highest percentages of child fatalities from motor vehicle accidents. It also has the fifth-highest annual child mortality rate per 100,000. These were the findings in a study by researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Harvard University that examined the relationship between motor vehicle accidents, state laws and geography. For the purposes of the study, a "child" was considered someone younger than 15.

2 dead in 2-car collision

Woman charged with DUI after crash

A 39-year-old woman turned herself in to authorities and was arraigned on May 8 in Cabell County, West Virginia. The woman faces multiple drunk driving charges after authorities say that she caused an accident on April 7 that resulted in the death of a 70-year-old. The crash occurred on the westbound portion of Interstate 64 near mile marker 4.

Police could have greater access to phone records

West Virginia motorists may be interested to know that a new product referred to as a "textalyzer" may help police learn more about their cellphone usage behind the wheel. The product enables authorities to place a cord into the phone that collects data about a driver's recent activity. It can determine what apps were open or if a person sent a text message just before an accident.

Getting compensation for PTSD after a car accident

West Virginia residents who are injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver might also suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the accident. However, they might also face a challenge in obtaining compensation for their PTSD as they would if they had a broken bone or another visible injury. If a lawsuit is necessary to get compensation, the time in which to file is not indefinite. Getting a diagnosis of PTSD is essential as it can go undiagnosed for months or even years.

Evidence that can help with car accident claims

Whenever an auto accident occurs in which there are injuries, and a West Virginia victim wishes to pursue damages via a lawsuit, a few elements are needed to support the claim. One is the factor of negligence, and the other is that the victim was harmed as a result. Therefore, plaintiffs will need to provide evidence of their injuries and proof of other monetary losses.
