Aggressive Virginia Attorneys Representing Auto Accident Victims
In the past year, 700 people were killed in vehicular accidents in the state of Virginia, and a staggering 63,384 people were injured. A large number of these were caused by factors such as: driving under the influence, speeding, and failing to obey posted signs and traffic signals.
Due to the overwhelming accident figures in Virginia, insurance rates remain high for drivers. Insurance is designed to cover physical and property damages incurred during an auto accident. However, the insurance company is in the business of saving money, and therefore oftentimes will deny your claim or refuse to compensate you for the full extent of your damages. When insurance is not able or willing to fully compensate you for your injuries, you must seek legal recourse. The best way to pursue your just compensation is to file a civil personal injury claim. If you proceed to trial, your lawyer will need to prove that the other party was at fault and that you suffered injuries. Your lawyer will also need to prove the extent of your injuries.

When you are out on the road, you are a careful driver. You follow the speed limit, stop at red lights, and heed traffic signs. However, not everyone is a good driver. Some individuals drive carelessly and negligently, causing the bulk of the accidents in the Hampton Roads community. When another driver is careless, even for a second, your entire life can be changed in a blink of an eye.
A personal injury claim can help you hold the other driver responsible for their negligent driving. The Stellute Law Firm can help you investigate your case, draft legal arguments, and advocate for your side in court.
Trucks were responsible for 46% of all crashes in the past year, causing almost 150 deaths and almost 17,000 injuries. While semi-truck drivers receive special training on how to drive high weight vehicles with numerous axles, the truth is these trucks are extremely hard to maneuver, especially when weather conditions in Hampton Roads are poor. Even if roads are slippery due to ice, the truck driver still owes a legal duty of care to all other drivers on the road. If the truck driver causes an accident that results in an injury to you, your passengers or your car, you have the right to seek legal recourse.
While many car manufacturers tout the safety features of sports utility vehicles (SUVs), these same vehicles are notorious for causing immense damage to other cars in accidents due to their heavy weight and reinforced bumpers. Drivers of SUVs are responsible for the exacerbated damages caused by their sturdy vehicles, and you should not be deterred from trying to obtain full compensation for your injuries. These injuries can include medical bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
