Chesapeake, VA Personal Injury Attorney Reports: Truck Slams Into Car on Bonney Road in Virginia Beach, Causes Injuries
The cause of the truck wreck remains under investigation. Was the driver distracted in some? Was there a mechanical problem with the dump truck? We will have to wait and see what the accident report reveals.
It is quite common for injuries to occur in truck-car accidents. The disparity in size and weight of the vehicles usually results in major damage, especially for the smaller car.
Our Virginia Beach injury law firm understands the ramifications of an accident involving a large commercial truck.
For example, we represented the estate of a man who lost his life in an accident involving a tractor-trailer. The operator of the truck attempted to change lanes but miscalculated the distance between his truck and the rear of our client's car. When he clipped the rear of the car, it caused the car to flip over, which nearly instantly killed our client, who was survived by his wife of 38 years and four adult children. Our firm understood that the family was seeking some semblance of justice through their wrongful death claim. Fortunately, we were able to secure a $2.4 million settlement for our client's wife and children.
