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:
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.

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.
