Even the tiniest of fender benders can send Virginia drivers and their passengers into a tailspin. It is stressful being in a car accident -- no matter how serious the accident is -- and this is why it is important that individuals are aware of what they should do to protect their rights following an accident.
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.
If you have been in a car accident, you may be wondering whether your injuries are serious enough to warrant the pursuit of a car accident injury claim, but medical treatment is costly no matter how serious the wound. Indeed, Virginia Beach car accident victims may wish to speak with an attorney who specializes in these matters before they provide any kind of statement to an insurance company.
