Car Accidents in Virginia

Being involved in a collision can severely impact an individual's life, especially when it results in injuries. Annually, over 800 lives are lost in motor vehicle accidents across Virginia, with another 65,000 individuals sustaining injuries. These injuries often impose significant limitations on daily activities. While motor vehicle accidents can occur for various reasons, the majority of fatal crashes in our state result from three main causes:

  • Non-use of seatbelts: Accounting for 52% of fatal crashes in Virginia.

  • Alcohol use: Involved in over 29.4% of fatal crashes.

  • Speeding: A factor in more than 37.7% of fatal accidents.

Unfortunately, these factors contribute to many injury accidents in our state, as well. While there are measures individuals can take to protect themselves on the roads, there's no guarantee of responsible behavior from others. Consequently, tens of thousands of individuals endure debilitating injuries, causing overwhelming pain and suffering. Many victims require costly medical treatment, hospitalization, and therapy.
