A serious car wreck on U.S. 522 in LouisaCounty, Virginia (VA), took the life of an innocent driver.

Our deepest sympathies go out to the victim’s family. Losing someone you love is one of the most difficult experiences anyone has to go through, but the pain is made even worse when the loss is sudden and may have been caused by the reckless actions of another person.

We do not know what exactly caused the Dodge driver to cross into the path of oncoming traffic. Was he distracted or drowsy? We will have to wait and see what the accident report reveals. 

If it turns out the driver was careless or negligent, the victim’s family may have grounds for a wrongful death claim.

To learn more about what types of damages can be pursued in a wrongful death claim, take a look at this article written by a wrongful death lawyer in Virginia.
