Norfolk-Area Auto Accidents & 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 taken to nearby medical facilities for emergency medical care, major surgeries, and excruciating treatments, where they may spend days, weeks, or months recovering.
Furthermore, victims often need counseling for mental trauma, which may be time-consuming and expensive. Unfortunately, not every accident victim recovers, leaving bereaved families to struggle with financial hardships while mourning their heartbreaking loss.
What’s more, these incidents are often avoidable, making the crushing repercussions that families are forced to bear all the more agonizing, especially because many catastrophes are the result of the careless or reckless conduct of others. According to statistics, more than 80% of crashes are caused by drivers who are distracted, those who get behind the wheel while intoxicated, or engaged in reckless conduct while driving their automobiles.
