Leading causes of Annandale car crashes

Annandale car accidents follow generally the same trend as crashes in the rest of Fairfax County, and indeed the rest of Virginia.

Failing to pay full time and attention to the roadway is one of the leading causes of car accidents, everywhere. There is a lot to unpack with that phrase, and it means that anytime a driver takes his or her eyes off the road, or allows his attention to wander, he is placing the rest of the motoring public at risk. Most commonly, we call this distracted driving. This can happen when people check their phones, try to unwrap a sandwich, or fiddle with the GPS or infotainment system. Consider how fast you are going, and how can happen in that second or two: at 60 miles an hour, that's a mile a minute, which means 88 feet! A lot can happen in 88 feet (that's one and half times as long as a regular trailer on a big-rig!).

Among the other leading causes of Annandale car accidents include:

  • Failing to maintain safe stopping distance

  • Following too closely

  • Disregarding traffic control devices

  • Failing to stop at stop signs

  • Failing to stop at stop lights

  • Drunk driving

  • Speeding

  • Aggressive driving

How an Annandale car accident lawyer can help you

After you've been hurt in a crash that wasn't your fault, you have the right to file a claim for your damages. Damages is a term used by both the legal profession and the insurance industry to explain all of the ways that an injury has affected your life.

There are a lot of considerations that go into exactly what your damages are, and one of the reasons you need to speak to an attorney is that the insurance company has absolutely no obligation to tell you what they are! If you give an insurance company a hospital bill where you had to pay $500 out of pocket, and they offer to give you $1,000, is that a good offer? Are you fully compensated? You might think that you are. But you're not. You see, as we said in our article, your claim is for the full price of medical treatment, not just what comes out of your pocket. And the insurance companies are not going to tell you that!

Another service provided by an attorney is fully documenting and exploring your damages. It is not enough to simply say that you are hurt: we have to prove it. How we do that is by gathering evidence, and exploring testimony, including from friends and family who have watched how the accident has impacted you. At Blaszkow Legal, we utilize the Blaszkow Legal Method. This is our unique way of working cases, from the minute a client work walks in the door. The insurance companies know that we are ready willing and able to go to trial, and we prepare for that from day one. Unlike some firms that don't go to court, we are not afraid of trial!

Arlington, VA – One Killed, Two Injured in Major Crash on S Walter Reed Dr near S Dinwiddie StThe damages that you can claim after an Annandale car crash

Among the damages that you can claim are items that are classified as economic damages and the non-economic damages. Economic damages are relatively easy to quantify, or to prove. This is because economic damages are documented. Economic damages include:

  • Medical bills

  • Prescription receipts

  • Medical device and supply expenses

  • Time lost from work

  • Future time lost from work

  • Future medical bills and expenses

  • Property damage

  • Diminished value

Non-economic damages are less clearly defined, because they have to be proven. Non-economic damages are not classified to in a law book and are not susceptible to being easily grouped. For example, low back pain is not automatically worth $500, and a broken arm is not worth $15,000. Some examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering

  • Emotional distress

  • Post-traumatic anxiety

  • Trauma

  • Loss of enjoyment of life

  • Impairment and activities of daily living

  • Inconvenience
