Hampton, Virginia (VA) Wrong-Way Crash on I-64 Takes Two Lives

Comments (0)
A 17-year-old became the second fatality from a head-on, wrong-way crash in Hampton, Virginia (VA), early in the morning of December 4, 2011. Another woman died shortly after the crash near the J. Clyde Morris Bouevard exit. Both women were freshmen-year students at Christopher Newport University.

Any accident is tragic, but as a Virginia car accident lawyer and a father who has a daughter in college, it disgusts me that polce suspect that the at-fault driver was drunk at the time of the collisionI also know the families are seething about the wrongful deaths of their daughters

The worst part is that this guy is due in court later this month on DWI charges stemming from a September 16, 2011, arrest. He apparently couldn’t even wait for his court date before he went drunk driving again, this time destroying families and snuffing out the lives of two young women who had everything to live for.

I know the families will never truly be able to get over their grief from losing their children, sisters and relatives. The best thing I can offer as a wrongfl death attrey is suggesting that we can bring a claim for punitive damages against the person who killed your loved one, holding him responsible for his actions. This is a form of punishment compensation that can be assessed if the drunk driver can be shown to have been grossly negligent or to have committed egregiously bad acts. Our firm's goal in every DUI and DWI injury or wrongful death case is to identify all sources of insurance recovery and to help our clients receive compensation
