Charlottesville Personal Injury Attorney Comments on Single Car Crashes

As an experienced Virginia personal injury lawyer, I am rarely surprised by statistics regarding auto accidents and related crash data. However, I was taken aback at the recent news that Virginia single car accident account for over 60 percent of auto accident fatalities. The leading causes of single car accidents are speeding, drunk driving and inattention or distracted driving. Often, speeding and drunk driving contribute together to cause an auto accident. The reason I find this statistic so interesting is that I always had the impression that a fatality was much more likely to result when the car driver was in a collision with a truck or larger commercial vehicle such as a bus or delivery van. Instead, the drunk, speeding or otherwise inattentive driver is much more likely to be the cause of his or her own demise. Unfortunately, there is often a passenger who is also injured by the conduct of the errant single car driver. In such cases, an experienced Virginia personal injury attorney should be consulted.
