Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C. – Attorneys at Law

Chesapeake, Virginia Car Accident Attorney

Driving is an essential need to get around Virginia. Whether you are running errands or going to work, you will need a reliable transportation method, and for most, that is a car. As you go about your day, you never expect that your life will be changed in seconds. That is the sad reality for over 128,172 people across the Commonwealth. That is how many accidents were reported in Virginia for the latest reporting year.

An accident can happen even to the most cautious drivers, and it can often be through no fault of your own. You may suffer injuries and other damages as a result of the carelessness of another person. You do not have to face these circumstances alone. Our Chesapeake, Virginia car accident attorney at Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C. is here to help you through this difficult time.

What Are The Causes of Car Accidents in Virginia?

Several reasons can cause a car accident, and it can happen at any moment. Distracted drivers accounted for more than 23,000 total crashes in Virginia for the same reporting year previously mentioned. Some other common causes of accidents are:

  • Following too closely
  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Running a traffic sign
  • Avoiding other vehicles
  • Improper lane change
  • Improper turn
  • Drunk driver
  • Hit and run
  • Rear-end collisions

This is not an exhaustive list and is only meant to explain the most common causes of accidents we see.

Common Injuries in Car Accidents

In most cases, car accidents have minor injuries since cars do provide substantial protection during an accident. Other times, injuries can be worse and take months or years to recover from. Some of the most common injuries we see are:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Loss of limb
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Lacerations
  • Puncture wounds

There is a range of other injuries you may sustain from a car accident, but these are just a few examples. While some injuries can heal with physical therapy and rest, others require surgery and extensive medical care.

Compensation for Car Accidents

When you have been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, you may wonder who will pay for everything. Your first assumption might be the insurance company. The sad truth is that insurance companies will try to lowball you and give you the least possible amount for your accident. At Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C., we will investigate every aspect of your case and seek compensation on your behalf for the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
