Norfolk, VA Personal Injury Lawyer Info: Speeding Driver in Norfolk Causes Accident, Injuries

A Honda minivan was traveling down Chesapeake Boulevard in Norfolk, Virginia (VA), when it was hit by a Lincoln sedan. The driver of the sedan was reportedly speeding, according to WAVY TV-10.

The driver of the Lincoln then lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a utility pole. Two people in the minivan had to be taken to the hospital for treatment.

I get so frustrated reading about accidents caused by speeding drivers. If only the driver of the sedan had exercised caution and driven the speed limit, maybe this accident could have been avoided. If the victims in the minivan miss a significant amount of time from work, accrue large medical bills or suffer a decrease in their quality of life because of this accident, they should consult with a personal injury attorney in Virginia to discuss their legal options. A personal injury claim can help recover some of these expenses and provide compensation for lost wages and pain and suffering.

Our firm has represented clients who suffered serious injuries in Virginia car wrecks. For example, we represented a client who was traveling down Virginia Beach Boulevard in Virginia Beach, VA. The at-fault driver failed to yield the right of way when attempting to enter the road and a terrible car crash occurred. Our client was hospitalized for weeks and underwent ultimately four foot or ankle surgeries including placement of a plate in his left leg, and ultimate fusion of his left ankle. We knew this wreck caused a dramatic drop in the quality of life for our client and were able to secure a $1 million settlement for him.
