Virginia Car Accident Statistics
Since 2007, there have been an average of 820 fatal car accidents in Virginia every year. The majority of these occur outside of urban centers in areas such as those around Hillsville and Galax, and along I-77, I-81, US-52, US-58 and other Virginia highways. After losing a loved one, it may be necessary to file a wrongful death claim in order to hold the negligent parties responsible for their actions. The two most prevalent causes of fatal car wrecks are:
- Drunk driving: Between 2007 and 2011, 30 percent of traffic fatalities in Virginia were caused by drunk driving. We have the tools and analytic skills necessary to show how alcohol and the negligence of other drivers led to the fatal accident that took your loved one from you.
- Speeding: From 2007 to 2011, excessive speed contributed to 31 percent of fatal traffic accidents in Virginia. We use careful investigation techniques, accident reconstructionists and expert witnesses to hold all responsible parties accountable for their actions.
Our vast trial experience allows us to effectively handle wrongful death cases involving these and other causes of fatal accidents, such as distracted driving, texting while driving, running stop signs and red lights, and all other causes.
