An area where we routinely practice is the city of Sufolk, Virginia (VA). Suffolk is a unique part of the Hampton Roads region. It is the largest city in the Commonwealth by area (though Virginia Beach is the most populous city) and Suffolk is actually the 11th largest city in the entire country. It is connected to the Nansemond and James River. In fact, the city of Suffolk was formed in the 70s after Nansemond County was consolidated with the towns of Holland and Whaleyville. Suffolk’s community is quite eclectic. The city is a major railroad and highway transportation hub and features a combination of industrial, manufacturing, distribution, and retail businesses, along with traditional farming. With such a melting pot of individuals, the roads and highways can get jammed rather easily in and around Suffolk. This creates a higher risk of serious accidents.
Cars, Trucks, and…Tractors?
As mentioned, Suffolk is a major highway transportation hub. That means major roadways like I-64, I-664, U.S. Highway 17, U.S. Highway 13, I-640, and so forth, are routinely driven by motorists operating sedans, SUVs, 18-wheelers, big rigs, motorcycles, and even farm tractors. This is because, as mentioned above, Suffolk also features a vibrant farming community. It is not uncommon to see a large farm tractor barreling down U.S. Highway 13 hauling hay or other farming materials.
When An Accident Happens, Get Legal Guidance
Such an array of vehicles on Suffolk roads and highways means there are serious accidents that occur on a regular basis. Some accidents are fender-benders, while others are extremely serious and deadly collisions. No matter what type of accident, if you or a loved one suffered a serious personal injury in a collision, speak to an experienced Suffolk personal injury lawyer to determine your legal options.
