Five perish en route to Charleston high school sporting event

During this time of year, the weather conditions in West Virginia can make the roads much more dangerous than usual. Snow, ice and rain can result in slippery driving surfaces, which means that drivers need to be especially careful to avoid car accidents.

What kind of damages are available in a wrongful death case?

Fatal accidents can arise from a variety of different circumstances. Motor vehicle accidents, for example, are one common cause of accidental deaths. Likewise, workplace accidents and medical errors can also lead to fatal accidents. When a victim loses their life in one of these accidents, their family members may want to pursue legal action. This usually means filing a wrongful death lawsuit. The next logical question is what kinds of damages are available in a wrongful death lawsuit?

We can help truck accident victims

People in the Charleston area who enjoy watching comedians perform on television or in-person, have probably followed some of the news about the truck accident involving comedian Tracy Morgan. In June, a Walmart truck slammed into the limousine van that Morgan and other comedians were riding in while on their way back from a performance. One passenger in the van died, and the most recent update on Morgan is that he may have brain damage as a result of the injuries that he suffered in the accident.

West Virginia woman brings lawsuit for icy slip-and-fall injury

The area of the law known as premises liability holds negligent property owners and possessors liable for the injuries and harm suffered by victims on their property. A West Virginia woman in a community about an hour south of the Kanawha County area recently brought a lawsuit for injuries she suffered during a fall in an icy parking lot. The woman asserts that she slipped on snow and ice in an elementary school parking lot, injuring her right knee. The victim is suing a local school board, accusing it of negligence in maintaining the parking lot. She asserts that the school board negligently failed to properly maintain the parking lot, keeping it clear of snow and ice, which caused her injury.
