Stafford County Accident Leads to Loss of Life

What Happened:

A man lost his life in an awful accident in Stafford County, Virginia (VA). The driver of a pickup truck was traveling north on Route 17 when he crossed into the southbound lane and wound up slamming head-on into a pickup truck.  The victim was taken to Mary Washington Hospital where he later succumb to his injuries. He was only 23 years old.

The at-fault driver has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, according to wusa9.com.

The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:

The family of the victim should speak to a Virginia wrongful death attorney to discuss their legal options. The family probably has grounds to pursue some semblance of justice through a wrongful death claim given the facts presently available in this awful accident. The family should also know that just because the at-fault driver is facing criminal charges does not preclude the family from pursuing a claim through the civil justice system.
