Who is responsible when truck cargo causes an accident?

No doubt you have been in a vehicle on the highways of Virginia when debris appears, seemingly from nowhere, and strikes the windshield. Sometimes, this startles everyone in the car, but in other cases, cargo flying or falling from a commercial truck can have devastating effects on the vehicles in its path. Regardless of the level of damage the cargo causes, the Code of Virginia has something to say about who is responsible.

What information should you give your insurance company?

There is little else as traumatizing as being involved in a car accident in Virginia. While you can do your best to follow traffic laws, be a vigilant and defensive driver and avoid distractions behind the wheel, there are undoubtedly times when you may encounter hazards that are unavoidable. If you are involved in an accident, dealing with the aftermath can be time-consuming and frustrating at times. 

Breaking down the Glasgow Coma Scale

It may surprise you to know how many of those that we here at Cranwell & Moore P.L.C., Attorneys at Law see after having seen loved ones suffer brain injuries who assume that the only outcome of such an accident is life in a vegetative state. It's perfectly normal to immediately assume the worst after hearing that a family member or friend has suffered such an injury. In reality, however, there is a scale of brain injury severity, and depending on where your loved one falls on that scale, a complete recovery may be entirely possible.
