Reviewing Virginia's pedestrian right-of-way laws

When cars collide with pedestrians in Manassas, it is not difficult to guess who gets the worst of it. Should such an accident occur on a sidewalk, it may also not be difficult to guess who is at fault. Yet when pedestrians enter the roadway, the question of liability becomes somewhat murkier. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that as recently as 2013, 4,735 pedestrians were killed and another 66,000 were injured after being struck by cars. Many of those accidents undoubtedly occurred on roads, where many may assume that cars have the right-of-way. Yet is that true? 

Identifying vehicle blind spots

You enjoy an excellent view of all that is around you when riding your motorcycle in Manassas. Sadly, the design of traditional vehicles prohibits drivers from seeing as much. This contributes directly to a common hazard: blind spots. Many of those that we here at The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC have worked with following motorcycle accidents have heard the same thing from the drivers that hit them: "I did not see you." Knowing where vehicle blind spots are may make you more aware of  the mistakes that may lead a driver to hit you. 

My neck hurts: Could this be from my car accident?

Vehicle accidents take a terrible toll in Virginia and the rest of the U.S., with several million crashes occurring each year. Along with more than 30,000 fatalities, nearly 2 million more people suffer injuries that range from concussions to whiplash and much worse. You should always seek a qualified doctor’s diagnosis for any pain that you may be experiencing as the result of an accident, but here are some common types of injuries that can occur during a crash.
