Virginia Personal Injury Attorneys
In 2020, there were 105,600 car accidents on Virginia roadways. That is 23,000 less than in 2019. The obvious reason for that appears to be because of less driving resulting from Covid-19 restrictions. However, in the course of these car accidents, in excess of 52,000 people including drivers, passengers, and pedestrians, suffered an injury. This is 13,000 less than 2019. Yet, 827 people died, which is only 20 less than 2019.
Unfortunately, more than 6,600 of these drivers in these car accidents were driving while impaired by alcohol, putting everyone on the road at risk. The alcohol related death rate actually went up.
Whenever a person puts another needlessly in danger and causes harm, a personal injury case is the only option for those who have been harmed.
In our society, we have a series of rules of the road that are designed to protect our drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. These rules are established for the common good. When these rules are broken, your life can be changed in a heartbeat.
If you need help, we are here for you. Most people just need information. That is why we offer our no-cost Ultimate Guide to Medical Treatment After a Car Accident in Virginia. We often get calls from folks asking, “what is my case worth?” That is hard for us to answer in a quick telephone conversation. But we created a tool just for people to check out what their case is worth.
However, some people need more help. In many cases, the insurance company is calling you every day. Or maybe, they are pressuring you to settle before you are comfortable resolving your case. Sometimes, the adjusters are just downright mean and they accuse you of faking an injury.
In those situations, the only thing you may be able to do to stop that kind of bad behavior is to hire a lawyer. At Osterbind Law, we want our clients to get better physically. We will focus on everything else. If that is you, contact us now.
