Virginia: Car Accidents – a Lawyer’s Alcohol

The Virginia Department of Motor Cars (“DMV”) publishes its Car Traffic Crash Facts annually. Its current [2013] edition underscores the increasing significance of alcohol in deadly vehicle crashes.

In 2013, although overall vehicle crash deaths decreased in Virginia, alcohol-related crash fatalities increased more than 10% from 2012. Last year, more than 1 in 3 vehicle crash deaths were alcohol-related, and one of the highest concentrations of them was in Hampton Roads, particularly on its Interstates.

Also, a disproportionate number of Virginia vehicle crash deaths often occur during the Christmas holidays. Unfortunately, 2013 was no exception.

This holiday season, be safe while driving. However, if you are injured by an offending driver, for over 30 years Mr. Waterman has handled vehicle accident cases, in addition to cases of medical malpractice, brain injury, and others involving wrongful death or serious personal injury.

THE VIRGINIA STATE BAR REQUIRES ALL LAWYERS TO POST THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMERS ON ALL CASE-RELATED POSTS. MR. WATERMAN’S CASE RESULTS AND CLIENT TESTIMONIALS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. THEY DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE BY HIM.
