Medical expenses you can claim in a car accident case

When a negligent, unlawful, reckless or inattentive vehicle driver hurts you, it may be possible to pursue a personal injury claim for damages in Virginia civil court. In most car accident injury cases, the most significant damages will probably relate to your medical costs.

Bicyclists and Virginia beach car accidents

Bicyclists are extremely vulnerable to getting hurt when they take to the road. Similar to motorcyclists, if a bicyclist is hit by a car, he or she will not have any means of protection aside from a helmet and a little bit of luck. This is why, when it comes to a bicycle versus car accident, the vehicle drivers tend to escape unharmed and the bicyclists are often gravely injured, or even killed.

Motorcyclist requires hospital care after serious accident

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to getting hurt in a motor vehicle collision. This is why motorcyclists should wear a helmet and other safety gear at all times. However, even with the most cutting edge safety equipment, the simple fact that motorcyclists are exposed to the open air in a collision means that they are always at risk of catastrophic and/or fatal injuries in even the most basic crashes.

Who is liable after a drunk driving accident?

Following any kind of injurious car accident, police will strive to assign fault to one of the drivers. If one of the drivers is deemed to be intoxicated, then authorities will most likely fault that individual. In turn, the intoxicated driver will probably also be liable for injuries and other financial damages stemming from the incident.
