Let Us Help You Get the Compensation You Deserve
The state of Virginia has a high vehicle accident rate, due mainly to the sheer volume of traffic on the roads - especially the Highway and Interstate systems. According to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, over 121,000 traffic accidents were reported throughout the state in 2013, resulting in more than 65,000 injuries and 741 fatalities.
Why So Many Accidents?
There are several reasons for these accidents in Hampton, VA and the Tidewater region – driver negligence being one of the most common. These include:
Failure to obey traffic signals or signs
Failure to indicate when changing lanes
Driving too fast for the ambient conditions
Following too closely behind another vehicle (tailgating)
Talking or texting on a cell phone
Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Other common causes of car and other vehicle accidents include hazardous weather conditions, poor maintenance of roads and highways, defective vehicles (caused by improper maintenance or faulty parts), and unsafe road design.
