How long can truckers stay safely on the road?


Hours of service requirements for truckers have long been a source of concern for drivers, as well as for lawmakers. Over the years, regulations have helped solidify the expectation that truck drivers operate safely and without undue tiredness or rushing. Both driver fatigue and speeding can threaten others' safety, which is why the drivers of commercial vehicles are held to stringent hours of service requirements in Northern Virginia and beyond.

Virginia's harsh contributory negligence law


After many traffic accidents, it's relatively clear who was at fault. For example, if a sports car driver speeds through a stop sign and crashes into a sedan that was lawfully traveling through an intersection, the injured sedan driver has a strong case to show that the sports car driver caused the accident through negligence and should be held liable for the injured person's damages. However, determining causation after a car accident is not always so easy. For example, what if both drivers ran the stop sign? Can the sedan driver recover compensation in that case?

How are most commercial vehicle accidents caused?


As many mature drivers understand, driver's education doesn't stop in high school. In addition to memorizing the rules of the road, safe drivers are always learning as they drive and integrating new experiences into stored information. While it's impossible to guarantee a driver will avoid all accidents, it is helpful to know how many common types of accidents are caused.

Speeding car may have caused Virginia bus crash


Commercial vehicle accidents, such as those involving semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, buses, box trucks, and other large vehicles, can have many different causes. Some are due to a negligent truck driver or negligent commercial truck company, but other accidents can be caused by the negligence of other drivers on the road.

Virginia truck accident victim's lawsuit settled for $3 million


While current winter temps make many Virginians want to stay inside, summers in the statee are a great time to hit the road and have some fun. Interstatee traffic tends to be particularly heavy during the summertime, as people are headed all over the statee or even to other parts of the country. Both summer and winter driving, though, can result in breakdowns which, for some, have proven fatal.
