The Virginia Wrongful Death Attorneys' Perspective

Any time a driver crosses into the path of oncoming traffic, a serious accident is almost sure to happen. Regardless of whether the man at fault for the crash in Franklin was impaired by drugs or alcohol, distracted, suffering a medical emergency, struggling to control a malfunctioning car or simply careless and reckless, the victims of his actions could have grounds for filing personal injury and wrongful death claims against him and his insurance policy. Drivers have high duties to maintain control of their vehicles and stay in their own lanes.
