The Dangers Of Car Crashes In Virginia Beach
Although motor vehicle accidents can happen anywhere, Virginia Beach is particularly ripe for them. The city is constructed with numerous bars and entertainment establishments – but few homes or hotels – near the oceanfront. It is necessary to drive in and out of the area, resulting in many drunk driving incidents. Highway 264, Shore Drive and other busy roadways are prime examples.
Giving You The Answers You Need
The aftermath of a catastrophic injury is very confusing. We can help you through it by providing the information you need to make informed decisions. Here, we have answered some of the most frequently asked questions that our prospective clients bring to us.
What Is My Case Worth?
Every case is different; there is no way to estimate the value of your claim without speaking to you in person. However, some common damages include:
- Hospital bills
- Prescription medications
- Rehabilitative therapy
- Other medical costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Pain and suffering
When you sit down with one of our team members, we can evaluate your claim and give you a more accurate assessment of the damages you can seek.
What Are The Most Common Causes Of Car Accidents In Virginia Beach?
Virginia Beach is particularly dangerous for car crashes. The most frequent causes include:
- Heavy traffic
- Drunk driving
- Drugged driving
- Distracted driving
- Foot traffic from the oceanfront
- Failure to yield to pedestrians and cyclists
Many crashes involve more than one factor, which makes them particularly complicated. Fortunately, we have experience handling complex cases like these.
What Happens If The Other Driver Was Uninsured?
The state of Virginia requires all motorists to have at least $25,000 in auto insurance, but many people ignore this law. If the other driver was underinsured or uninsured, you can recover compensation through your own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. If you do not have this coverage in your policy, you might need to file a personal injury claim against the other driver themselves, not just their insurance provider.
Who Is Responsible For The Accident?
Some crashes have an obvious at-fault party. Others might not, especially if the incident involved more than two vehicles. In some rare cases, there could be other sources of third-party liability such as the vehicle manufacturer, an auto parts manufacturer or even the city. It is crucial that you have a lawyer on your side who has experience in accident reconstruction and knows how to conduct thorough discovery to determine the party at fault.
