Virginia car accidents may result in death, injuries

A woman in Virginia recently lost her life in a tragic car accident. Meanwhile, four other individuals suffered injuries in the accident. Sometimes, these types of car accidents happen as a result of a driver's carelessness, in which case the driver may be held liable for any injuries or deaths resulting from the accident.

The recent fatal crash occurred on a Friday at around 6:05 p.m. According to police, the 29-year-old woman who passed away in the crash was riding in the front passenger seat when the collision occurred. She apparently passed away at the crash scene.

Of the four people who suffered injuries in the crash, three of them were children. Police said the injured adult, 23, was the individual who was driving the car when the crash took place. All four of these individuals were transported to medical centers for the treatment of their injuries. Police said they had not yet filed charges in the accident.

If police discover that the fatal accident was a result of the driver's negligence -- such as texting and driving -- the deceased passenger's family members may choose to file a wrongful death claim against the driver. In the same manner, the driver may face personal injury claims filed on behalf of the other injury victims. If the plaintiffs can establish liability in civil court, a judge or jury will adjudicate their claims for financial damages. A claim that is fought successfully might result in monetary damages that may help to cover burial costs, hospital bills and other losses associated with these kinds of car accidents in Virginia.
