Chesapeake Personal Injury Lawyer: Virginia State Trooper Injured While Helping Disabled Truck

Comments (0)
A Virginia State trooper was assisting a disabled tractor-trailer move to the right shoulder of U.S. 258 just after midnight on October 17, 2011, when a car rear-ended the trooper's cruiser and caused him neck and back injuries.  According to the Virginian-Pilot, the trooper had his lights flasing but was parked in a way that left his vehicle blocking part of the right lane.

The woman behind the wheel of the Dodge Charger that struck the officer's cruse has been charged with DUI and possession of marijuana.

Unfortunately, the experienced Virginia personal injury attorneys with our firm see far too many cases in which troopers are injured while doing their jobs. For instance, we reported earlier this year on how two VA troopers were hurt within a short time of each other. One of the troopers was seriously injured in a car crash that happened as the officer was responding to the scene of a separate car crash involving another state trooper on I-395.

Our firm has helped many victims of a DUI accident get their lives back on track. Our goal in every DUI case is to identify all sources of insurance recovery and to help our client receive compensation for all types of accident related expenses and losses including medical bills, lost wages, permanent injuries and pain and suffering.
