How often do drunk driving crashes occur in Virginia?

Drunk driving is illegal, and this type of driving behavior can lead to serious crashes. Unfortunately, despite awareness campaigns and ramped up DUI enforcement, these incidents remain far too common.

According to data available from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, we know that there were a total of 827 traffic fatalities and more than 65,000 traffic injuries during the latest year of data available across the Commonwealth. The DMV also shows that there were:

  • 7,048 total alcohol-related crashes
  • 252 alcohol-related crash fatalities
  • 2,961 alcohol-related crash injuries

This data reveals that approximately 32% of all traffic fatalities across the Commonwealth during the latest reporting year were the result of a drunk driver. This is an astounding statistic that shows just how dangerous drunk drivers really are on the roadways.

Most common DUI accident injuries

Looking at the Virginia DMV data, we can see that drunk drivers pose a significant threat on the roadway. At Randall Page, P.C., our Virginia DUI accident attorneys regularly help clients who have sustained the following injuries in these incidents:

  • Spinal cord damage with possible paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Severe lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Open head wounds
  • Crush injuries

Time limit to file a DUI accident claim

Every state has time limits that dictate how long DUI accident victims have to file personal injury claims against the alleged negligent party. These time limits are called the statute of limitations. In Virginia, victims of drunk driving crashes have a two-year window with which to file a claim against the alleged drunk driver to recover compensation for their losses. However, insurance claims need to be filed very soon after an accident occurs, often within days of the incident occurring.
