Pedestrian Accidents in Virginia

Every day, over 180 individuals sustain injuries in vehicle accidents in the Commonwealth of Virginia. These accidents often lead to severe injuries, necessitating hospitalization. Victims frequently suffer brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and broken bones, enduring painful injuries that impede their daily activities. Additionally, they face substantial medical expenses, often totaling tens of thousands of dollars, and are unable to work during their recovery. Many victims require extensive and costly medical treatment to aid in their recovery. Unfortunately, pedestrians involved in accidents are often the left with more severe injuries.

Sadly, there is no assurance of full recovery for victims, with thousands left permanently disabled due to the severity of their injuries. Despite efforts by many drivers to avoid causing harm, it's impossible to control the actions of others. In fact, over 80% of collisions in our state result from the negligence or recklessness of drivers.

Texting while driving, engaging in distractions inside the vehicle, adjusting the radio, driving under the influence, and other negligent behaviors contribute to many accidents. When victims suffer harm in accidents due to others' negligence, contacting a pedestrian accident attorney in Virginia immediately is crucial.
