Shoulder fractures resulting from car accidents

Many West Virginia car accident victims suffer from broken bones as a result of their collisions. Broken bones often put victims out of work for weeks while their fractures heal. Joint fractures, including shoulder fractures, can be particularly burdensome, often requiring surgery, physical therapy or other treatments to heal.

Driving while impaired

West Virginia motorists who drive while they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs can create dangers for those in their own vehicles as well as for others on the roads. Although community education is used to remind drivers of their responsibilities, the nation as a whole loses an average of nearly 30 people per day to alcohol-related motor vehicle accidents. In fact, more than 30 percent of auto fatalities in the U.S. in 2012 involved impaired drivers.

Vibration injuries in West Virginia

Many workers are subjected to vibration every day as a normal part of their jobs, and studies have shown that long-term exposure to vibrations can result in injuries that usually occur in the fingers, hand, wrist and lower back. Commonly used tools that have been shown to be known culprits in causing harm include pavement breakers, sanders, chippers, power tools and dental drills.

West Virginia motorcyclists and crashes

A report from the Insurance Information Institute sheds new light on the hazards of being a motorcyclist across the country. According to the report, motorcycle fatalities were down 6.4 percent in 2013 from the 2012 total. Quoting a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, the III report says another 784 riders might have lived if they had worn helmets, which are mandatory in West Virginia.
