Tackling medical bills after a truck accident

The price of health care often seems to be going nowhere but up. Medical bills in general can be tremendously expensive, but the treatment costs after a truck accident can be downright staggering. A truck accident in Northern Virginia can cause any type of serious injury imaginable: broken bones, back injuries, lacerations from broken glass and even brain damage.

How long can truckers stay safely on the road?

Anyone who has ever taken a long road trip knows that at a certain point, the body and mind just can't stay awake any longer. With summer just beginning, many in Northern Virginia are likely preparing for their seasonal trips, planning itineraries and places to stop along the way.

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

New study highlights just how dangerous a semi truck can be


Many Fairfax County drivers have just one thing on their mind while driving: getting from point A to point B efficiently.

Nevertheless, the results of a study have recently emerged, reminding Virginia drivers how important safety is when sharing the road with semi trucks.
