What does a typical personal injury suit entail?

Those who have been victimized by negligent or reckless motorists may suffer physically, emotionally and financially. After a car crash in which another was at fault, a victim may consider filing a personal injury suit against the other driver. While each case is unique, there are some common steps to a personal injury lawsuit that a Virginia attorney can expand upon.

Minivans may not be safest choice for preventing crash injuries


As a heavily populated region, Northern Virginia is home to countless different types of vehicles. Residents of Arlington and Fairfax may be used to seeing compact "smart cars" zip through the region's more urban corridors, while the interstates regularly feature huge semi-trucks, commercial vehicles, and many other types of vehicles. Some residents choose their vehicles based on car crash safety ratings; as a result, many individuals and families prefer SUVs and minivans. Often known for their relatively high safety ratings, minivans may not be as safe as some consumers assume.

Virginia's harsh contributory negligence law


After many traffic accidents, it's relatively clear who was at fault. For example, if a sports car driver speeds through a stop sign and crashes into a sedan that was lawfully traveling through an intersection, the injured sedan driver has a strong case to show that the sports car driver caused the accident through negligence and should be held liable for the injured person's damages. However, determining causation after a car accident is not always so easy. For example, what if both drivers ran the stop sign? Can the sedan driver recover compensation in that case?

Police chase on I-66 in Fairfax results in multiple injuries


Commuters in Northern Virginia are used to traffic jams, speeding vehicles and the occasional political motorcade. Most of the time, the traffic situations that bring cars to a halt on the interstate are simply due too many vehicles trying to get to work during the same morning and evening hours. Recently in Fairfax, though, a nasty jam was created when a police chase became a multi-vehicle auto accident.

Fairfax police get schooled in moped safety


Fortunately for its many residents, Northern Virginia is home to a robust mix of transportation options. With the price of gas certainly not going down in recent years, some residents are becoming more open to alternatives to driving a car. Some may choose to get around on a moped; if they're not going far, a moped can be ideal for in-town driving, if weather permits. Still, due to its small size and unfamiliarity for many drivers, a moped can easily become involved in a car accident if vehicle drivers aren't attentive.

Nationwide study tallies up true costs of car accidents


There is often a dizzying array of costs associated with car accidents. For the individuals involved, there are likely to be medical expenses and lost wages due to missed work from the auto accident. For surviving family members of victims in fatal accidents, both medical expenses and funeral expenses can add financial trauma on top of tragedy.
