In 2018, there were more than 130,000 accidents on Virginia roadways. In the course of these accidents, in excess of 66,000 people including drivers, passengers, and pedestrians, suffered an injury. Over 800 people died. Unfortunately, more than 7,000 of the drivers in these accidents were driving while impaired by alcohol, putting everyone on the road at risk.
Whenever a person puts another needlessly in danger and causes harm, a negligence case may arise. 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.
