Serious Multi-Vehicle Wrecks in Norfolk
Thousands of people are injured or killed in traffic-related incidents throughout the commonwealth of Virginia yearly. Although these accidents are often preventable, we are forced to witness the overwhelming consequences families are forced to endure. Hundreds of victims are rushed to area hospitals after their accidents where they have to undergo emergency medical treatment and spend days or even weeks in recovery. Victims often require therapy for their injuries, which is time-consuming and costly. Unfortunately, not every accident victim is able to recover.
In many cases, the negligent or reckless actions of others are the cause of these catastrophic accidents. Furthermore, statistics show that more than 80% of car accidents are caused by distracted drivers who are texting, talking on their phones, impaired, or engaging in reckless behaviors while operating their vehicles.
When people sustain injuries in accidents caused by the actions of other motorists or even lose their lives as a result of these wrecks, their families should reach out to a Hampton Roads wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.
