Serious injuries can occur in motor vehicle accidents

In West Virginia and Kentucky, car accidents are, unfortunately, a common occurrence. Everyday so-called "fender benders" occur, as do more serious accidents that can cause severe injuries. Even fatalities occur on an all too frequent basis. When serious injuries result from a car accident, the injured victims need to know what the possible injuries are and how they might need to proceed with a possible legal claim.

Six-vehicle crash leads to injuries and shuts down interstate

Our readers may have seen reports about a car accident scene on Interstate 64 that occurred recently and which had a large-scale impact on traffic in the westbound lanes. According to the reports, the accident occurred on September 19 during the evening commute hours in Kanawha County.

A serious and comprehensive approach to personal injury claims

Being involved in a sudden and unexpected accident can be devastating for any resident of Kentucky or West Virginia, as well as their family members. But, unfortunately, personal injury accidents are all too common in America. Car accidents, in particular, happen every day, while other incidents such as injuries from defective products and dangerous property conditions are also common. When a person is injured due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, a personal injury claim in civil court may be an option.

Wrongful death claims in a personal injury context

When a loved one dies due to old age or a prolonged illness, their survivors will certainly grieve, but may also understand that death is a part of life and their loved one's passing was nobody's fault. However, if a person in West Virginia or Kentucky dies due to another person's negligent act or misconduct, their loved ones' grief will be amplified, especially considering that such deaths could have been avoided had the responsible party not behaved negligently. When this happens, the victim's survivors may want to pursue a personal injury claim known as a "wrongful death" suit.
