Police Investigate Fatal Car Accident in Martinsville

Comments (0)
An accident in Martinsville,Virginia (VA) claimed the life of a passenger in a single car accident. Reports indicate the driver lost control of the car and slammed into a utility pole.

Police are unaware of what caused the driver to lose control of the car, but alcohol is considered to be a factor. According to WSET, there have been warrants issued for the driver with DUI charges along with driving on a suspended license and reckless driving.

I get so frustrated reading about accidents where an innocent life was lost due to the reckless behavior of a driver. The victim’s family is probably in a state of shock grieving over the sudden loss of their loved one all because the at-fault driver failed to exercise caution and not get behind the wheel after drinking.

The victim’s family should consider speaking to a wrongful death lawyer in Virginia to discuss their legal options. Just because the at-fault driver is facing criminal charges does not preclude them from seeking justice through a civil action. To learn more about the wrongful death claim process, take a moment to read this consumer guide which was written by an experienced wrongful death attorney in Virginia.
