Car Accident Injuries in the Virginia Commonwealth
Every year, more than 65,000 individuals in Virginia are wounded in automobile, truck, and SUV accidents. Even though these incidents are frequently avoidable, we continue to witness innocent individuals suffer as a result of other drivers’ recklessness. Negligent drivers, speeders, inebriated drivers, and those that engage in risky driving practices are all responsible for the lion’s share of accidents across the Commonwealth.
What’s worse, accident victims typically require substantial medical care and must spend months or even years healing and attending physical therapy. Adding insult to injury, though there are several therapeutic alternatives available to assist victims in the aftermath of their accidents, they are costly and do not guarantee a full recovery. Thousands of people are permanently incapacitated as a result of their injuries in car accidents.
