What should I do after a motor vehicle accident?

What should I know about car accidents with animals in Virginia?

Most Virginia drivers and motorcyclists do not even think about animals while driving, but animals can cause a fatal or injurious accident in a heartbeat. Wild animals like deer are especially dangerous because of their size and the fact that they are not typically fenced in. From July 2012 through June 2013, approximately 1.2 million motor vehicle crashes happened last year involving deer. Domestic animals like dogs, cats, cows, horses and pigs can also be extremely dangerous if they are allowed to roam free.
