Virginia Commonwealth Car Accident Injuries
Hundreds of individuals are seriously injured or killed in traffic-related events throughout Virginia, ranging from pedestrian accidents to vehicle crashes and beyond. Unfortunately, after suffering at the hands of a careless or irresponsible motorist, these victims and their families pay a high price. Hundreds of patients are transported to surrounding hospitals for emergency medical care, major operations, and painful treatments, and many of them spend days, weeks, or even months recovering.
Furthermore, victims’ mental distress often necessitates counseling, which may be time-consuming and expensive. Unfortunately, not every accident victim recovers, leaving bereaved families to face financial hardships while trying to heal from their tragic loss.
To add insult to injury, these incidents are sometimes avoidable, making the devastating repercussions that families are forced to bear all the more heartbreaking, especially because these mishaps are typically caused by the careless or reckless conduct of others. According to statistics, more than 80% of crashes are caused by drivers who are distracted, drunk, or engaged in dangerous driving behaviors while operating their automobiles.
