Verizon Worker Struck on Side of Chatham, Virginia (VA) Road

Comments (0)

What Happened

On Route 29 in Chatham, Virginia (VA) it was a routine work day for one Verizon employee until he was suddenly hit by vehicle.


Officials say a previous accident that involved an over turned tractor trailer left phone lines downed. The Verizon employee was repairing the downed lines when a car veered off the road and hit him. The Verizon worker was taken to a local hospital with a leg injury. The driver was charged with reckless driving.

The Virginia Person Injury Lawyers’ Perspective

This Virginia (VA) car accident is another example of just how pertinent it is to maintain focus and avoid distractions while driving. The driver of the vehicle is fortunate he did not kill the Verizon worker. When injured by a careless driver it is important for victims to speak with the best Virginia (VA) based personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The immediate medical bills from the emergency room and hospital stay will be the responsibility of the worker until he can secure the at-fault driver’s insurance.

The uncertainty of further medical treatment and lost time from work during recovery is another reason to seek representation to assure that driver of the vehicle is held responsible for his actions. The extent of the injuries suffered will ultimately determine the maximum amount of possible monetary compensation.
