The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

The injured pedestrian, or a family member of the victim, should speak with a Virginia personal injury lawyer to discuss their legal options. They may have grounds to pursue restitution for medical expenses, which may be extensive given the extent of the victim’s injuries, and other damages.
