What are West Virginia's drunk driving laws?

Drunk driving is a major problem in West Virginia. According to some sources, more than a quarter of all fatal accidents in the state involve alcohol, and even more result in serious injury. As such, West Virginia is cracking down on intoxicated drivers by imposing steep penalties on anyone caught in the act.

What is the Residents’ Bill of Rights?

An assisted living facility or a nursing home is not a place where the elderly are sent to in order to simply be warehoused until they die, or a place to be forgotten, neglected and in worst-case situations abused. This is the intent that underlies the federal 1987 Nursing Home Reform Law, which applies to West Virginia.

Car-motorcycle crash raises multiple legal issues

Two people were killed recently in an accident that happened in Lesage when a pickup truck apparently rear-ended three motorcycles as they were turning off a highway and into a parking lot. The incident provides a glimpse into how a single act on the road can lead to multiple legal consequences.

Traffic safety violations can raise negligence questions

When one vehicle collides with another the issue of whether either or both drivers were negligent will usually need to be considered, and as we have seen in an earlier post West Virginia is a comparative fault state. But sometimes another possibility can occur in connection with an accident when either or both drivers are also found to have violated statutes while getting into a collision.
