Car Accident Attorneys Norfolk

Car crashes are common occurrences throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, and over 128,000 accidents were reported in a recent year. Those accidents led to over 65,700 injuries, 827 fatalities, and significant financial losses for those involved. 

Are you one of the thousands of people injured in car accidents in Virginia each year? If so, you might have the right to seek compensation for your injuries and losses. You should discuss your legal options with car accident attorneys in Norfolk as soon as you can. The legal team of Hampton Injury Law PLC can protect your rights. 

What Causes Norfolk Car Accidents?

Every type of car accident has the potential to cause injuries, including “fender benders.” Whether you suffered a concussion or whiplash in a rear-end crash or tragically lost a close family member in a rollover, it is important to know what caused the accident to happen. Once our attorneys determine the cause, we can identify who should be liable for your losses. 

Some common causes of crashes in the Norfolk area include:

  • Distracted driving, including texting or otherwise using a smartphone
  • Operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding or driving too fast for adverse road, weather, or traffic conditions
  • Running stop signs or red lights
  • Aggressive driving, including tailgating or weaving through traffic
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Drowsy driving, which can lead to falling asleep at the wheel

When a driver is negligent and causes a crash, they should be liable for any harm they cause. However, there might be more than one party that shares fault for your crash-related injuries. 

For example, if the at-fault driver was on the job at the time of the crash, their employer might also have liability. The same might be true for rideshare companies or public transportation entities. Two other drivers might both have been negligent, and they would divide liability in this situation. In some cases, a car manufacturer might be liable for producing defective car parts. 

These are only some examples of causes of accidents and potentially liable parties. As long as you did not contribute to the accident, we can seek recovery for your losses from all possible parties.
