Car Accidents in Virginia
Every day, a significant number of over 180 individuals suffer injuries from vehicle accidents in the Commonwealth of Virginia. These accidents inflict severe harm upon the victims, often leading to hospitalization and the need for extensive medical care.
Some of the most common injuries that are experienced by car crash victims in our state include brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and broken bones. These injuries not only cause excruciating pain and hinder victims from participating in various activities but also burden them with extensive medical expenses amounting to tens of thousands of dollars. In addition, victims are often forced to take time off work as they get the medical care that they need and recover.
The unfortunate truth is that there is no guarantee of full recovery for these victims, resulting in a significant portion of individuals being left permanently disabled due to the severity of their injuries. Despite the efforts of many drivers to prioritize safety and avoid harming others, it remains impossible to control the actions of all drivers on the road.
Regrettably, more than 80% of collisions within our state are attributable to the negligence or recklessness of drivers. Countless accidents occur due to drivers engaging in distractions such as texting, eating, adjusting the radio, driving under the influence, and exhibiting other negligent or reckless behaviors.
