Fatal Auto Accidents in Virginia

In 2023, a total of 907 individuals lost their lives on Virginia's roads due to vehicle collisions. Reports from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles indicate a concerning increase in the total number of traffic fatalities with a 15 year high reported in 2022 alone. Quite often, these devastating accidents are a result of driver negligence, with speeding and aggressive driving as the top causes of fatalities in Virginia.

Aggressive driving behaviors, such as weaving between lanes, tailgating, or brake-checking, directly endanger the lives of others. This type of recklessness can lead to severe accidents, claiming the lives of innocent individuals.

Speeding significantly heightens the risk of losing control of a vehicle and colliding with others. It also impairs a driver's ability to maneuver safely, particularly during emergencies or shifts in traffic flow.

Losing a loved one is an overwhelming pain for any family to deal with, especially when it results from another driver's reckless actions. While nothing can undo the loss, families may pursue a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. Though it cannot bring back a loved one, this type of legal claim can offer accountability and vital financial support for funeral expenses and more.
