According to the Virginia Traffic Crash Facts, in 2020 there were 105,600 vehicular crashes on the roadways in Virginia. Of that number, more than half of those crashes resulted in injuries, with an additional 847 fatalities. In many cases, these injuries and fatalities occurred because of the negligence and recklessness of other drivers. And these accidents only represent the total reportable accidents and do not include any non reportable crashes.
The total number of crashes in Virginia in 2020 actually represents a decrease from the total number of crashes in 2019.

What Should You Do If You Were Seriously Injured In A Car Accident?
Make sure you or someone you know gets photos of the accident scene and your car following the collision. We can obtain the accident report, your medical information and information from any witnesses for you.
Your first priority should be your health and recovery. If a family member has been injured, be sure they have your full support and the details of everyday life handled for them. Get the medical treatment you need. Let the doctors treating you know exactly what happened to your body during the accident, including what portions of the body were struck, locations of bruises, areas of soreness, whether you lost consciousness, and problems with vision or memory. The injuries a car accident victim experiences often change depending on the type of collision involved, for example rear-end collision, etc. You should also be prepared to describe pain, kind of pain you experience, including the location of the pain; whether it’s sharp or dull; whether it involves burning, tingling, or numbness how long it lasts; what kinds of activities seem to aggravate the pain; and, whether medication helps.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Claims adjusters work for insurance companies and must act in the best interest of the insurance company. It’s that simple. They have lawyers to protect their interests, and you need the same protection.
If you file a car accident claim, you may find that the insurance company is not your friend. DON’T GET HURT TWICE! Call the auto accident injury attorneys at the Ritchie Law Firm to make sure you are protected. We are your WALL OF DEFENSE!
