Virginia Personal Injury Lawyer Perspective:
This appears to be another sad case of a deadly car accident involving alcohol, which kills thousands of Americans each year. Regardless of who was at fault in this tragic wreck, being sober while driving could have prevented this accident from turning deadly. We wish the best to the family of the victim.
After a detailed case review by an experienced DUI personal injury lawyer, it is possible that the victim’s family could benefit from a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver charged with DUI. The family could recover lost wages, and compensation for funeral expenses and pain and suffering.
