The lack of criminal charges would not preclude the victim from pursuing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. But if the driver is found to have been negligent in his actions, the victim would have ample grounds to file a lawsuit to recover medical expenses, lost wages and other monetary damages.

As an experienced Virginia personal injury lawyer, I know that someone involved in a crash like this one needs a lawyer who will fight on their behalf to get them the compensation they deserve.
