2 young girls die in tragic accident while woman flees cops

A driver has been charged with second-degree murder regarding the deaths of two young girls, who died in a car crash earlier this month. The accident happened along I-264 while the woman was allegedly trying to escape the police. The two young girls who died in the crash were riding as passengers in the woman's vehicle.

Contributory negligence and kids in bike accidents

Virginia drivers who cause injury to bicyclists usually try to claim that the bicyclist committed contributory negligence. In other words, they try to say that the accident and injuries were the fault (or at least partial fault) of the cyclist in order to reduce the likelihood that driver will be liable for the bicyclist's injuries and other financial damages. With children and bicycle accidents, though, the issue of contributory negligence is slightly different than with adult bicyclists.

Preserving evidence after a car crash

Virginia Beach residents who suffer injuries in car crashes will want to preserve as much evidence as possible relating to the event. The more evidence victims gather, the better chances they will have of proving that an at-fault driver was liable for financial damages stemming from the crash.

Seeking damages after a DUI car accident

There is nothing better than a drive down Virginia Beach on a warm summer night under the full moon, but an enjoyable ride like this can be destroyed in a heartbeat by an irresponsible and negligent drunk driver. The truth is that every single night -- and especially on the weekends -- Virginia Beach drivers are sharing the roadway with motorists who are dangerously intoxicated by alcohol.
