Auto Accident Injuries in Virginia
According to recent reports released by the Virginia Highway Safety Office, almost 130,000 auto accidents led to more than 65,000 injuries and 830 deaths in 2019 alone. Even worse, across the Commonwealth of Virginia, close to 1,000 people are killed in car accidents annually. Sadly, another 65,000 individuals are seriously injured as a result of these crashes.
Victims of these incidents who sustain injuries tend to face a number of serious consequences, from exorbitant medical expenses to long-term medical issues and beyond.
All too often, these victims require treatment and ongoing therapy that could last for months or even years. As a result, victims may pay tens of thousands of dollars out of their own pockets or deal with stressful negotiations with insurance companies to get their fair share. Tragically, in the case that victims succumb to their injuries, their mourning family members are left to pick up the pieces
