Semi-Truck Accidents in Virginia
The most recent data released by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles show that almost 900 deaths occurred on Virginia’s roadways in 2020. In addition, almost 150 people suffered injuries each day in the Commonwealth of Virginia from traffic crashes. And when it comes to accidents involving tractor-trailers, the consequences for victims and their families can be much worse.
Though you can take action to protect yourself on busy roads, there is no way to guarantee that others will act responsibly. As a result, tens of thousands of people sustain debilitating injuries that cause overwhelming pain and suffering. To add to the struggles and frustration, many victims require long-term treatment.
