A vehicle accident is a very common occurrence which can completely disrupt your life. Accident victims or their loved ones experience:

  • Personal Injury
  • Death
  • High treatment bills
  • Damage to their auto

Car accident lawsuits are the most common form of tort claim. These claims involve some careless or reckless act by one person resulting in a crash with another car or person on foot. Whether the use of a motor vehicle involves actual fault depends upon the driver’s conduct and whether that conduct complies with the Rules of the Road. The Rules of the Road are set forth either in the Virginia State Code or the local Code that controls traffic.

The Rules of the Road or traffic rules set the standards for use of cars and trucks. A breach of these rules is negligence.
