stateistics on alcohol-related car crashes in Virginia

The number of people killed in alcohol-related car accidents in Virginia last year was 251. While this number is two less than 2013, the two years were much higher than 212 when 229 people were killed.

To put these numbers in perspective, there were 7,666 alcohol-related accidents in 2014. There were 5,003 injuries in those accidents.

The number of people that were convicted of DUI in 2014 in Virginia were 24,895. They had an average blood alcohol content of .14, which is almost twice the statee's legal limit.

At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, we represent clients who have been injured in accidents that were not their fault. Many of these accidents were caused by an intoxicated driver. Although a DUI charge can make a civil case for damages easier, criminal charges are not required in order to seek compensation.

In many cases, insurance companies will try to settle the claim of the person at fault. If the at fault driver does not cover your losses, then we will either bring a claim against the intoxicated driver or pursue damages from your insurance company.

Punitive damages, which are meant to punish, can be sought in Virginia if the intoxicated driver had a blood alcohol content of .15.

At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, we know how difficult it can be healing after an accident. We want to make this time less stressful for you, while still pursuing the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
