Norfolk-Area Vehicle Wrecks & Injuries
Throughout Virginia, hundreds of people are critically wounded or killed in traffic-related incidents, ranging from pedestrian accidents to car collisions and beyond. After suffering at the hands of a negligent or irresponsible driver, these victims and their families pay a steep price. Hundreds of patients are sent to surrounding medical institutions for emergency care, major operations, and agonizing treatments, where they may recuperate for days, weeks, or months.
In addition, victims often need treatment for emotional trauma, which may be time-consuming and costly. Unfortunately, not every accident victim recovers, leaving grieving families to suffer financially while they grieve their tragic loss.
Moreover, these tragedies are often preventable, making the shattering consequences that families are forced to endure all the more excruciating, particularly considering that many calamities are caused by the negligent or irresponsible behavior of others. Statistics indicate that more than 80 percent of automotive collisions are caused by drivers who are distracted, drunk, or engaging in irresponsible behavior while behind the wheel. However, victims and their families may be able to seek legal recourse if they are hurt in an accident for which they were not responsible.
If a person has suffered serious injuries or died as a result of an accident caused by the negligence of another driver, their family should immediately contact a Virginia car accident attorney. Families may be entitled to compensation for their losses and any future financial hardships.
