Pedestrians Struck in Charlottesville, Virginia

In Charlottesville, Virginia, there have been several recent incidents where pedestrians have been struck by cars or trucks. Most recently, a small child was struck. Most interestingly, a UVa student was struck late at night while running across the road wearing a lacrosse helmet. The police report indicates that although the helmet obstructed the student's vision and contributed to cause the accident, it also saved him from serious injury as his helmet clad head hit the windshield without breaking. From the standpoint of the Virginia personal injury lawyer, pedestrian cases can be challenging because Virginia still adheres to the common law rule that contributory negligence is a complete bar to recovery. So unless the accident is the sole fault of the driver, it is difficult to make a claim. An experienced injury lawyer can analyze the law and the facts to see if a valid claim is possible. Our law firm offers a free review and consultation. If you have been injured anywhere in the stat of Virginia, we are here for you.
