Rise in Pedestrian Accident Injuries in Newport News, Virginia

Comments (0)


What Happened:

Two different pedestrian car accident injuries occurred in Newport News, Virginia (VA).  The first one occurred in the 12000 block of Jefferson Avenue when the driver slammed on his breaks just as a light turned red.  The driver was unable to stop his car and slid through the intersection striking a homeless man who was crossing the street.

The second pedestrian injury occurred on Fort Eustis Boulevard when a car struck a bike rider who was traveling in the same direction.  The bicycle rider suffered a traumatic head injury and was taken to a hospital.

The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

As experienced Virginia (VA) pedestrian injury lawyers we have a proven track record of recovering for our clients. Often pedestrian accidents involve traumatic brain injuries just like the recent accident in Newport News.  This can mean years of care and little or no quality of life for some victims.  This is the time you need a lawyer who has gone to trial such as when we recovered $540,000 for two clients after they were struck by a car in a crosswalk at the Virginia Beach, VA, oceanfront.
