Distracted Driving Accidents Lynchburg VA

One of the biggest challenges that we face in Virginia with the ever-increasing use of technology in our lives is distracted driving. In 2018, distracted driving accounted for 18.5% of all accidents in Virginia. That means that over 24,000 accidents, that resulted in 126 deaths, was attributed to distracted driving. Cellphones are a leading cause of distracted driving. Young people are most likely to affected by cell phone use that attributes to distracted driving accidents, with the age group of 16-19 years old accounting for 21% of fatal accidents as a result of distracted driving.

In addition to cellphone use, the most common causes of distracted driving are:

  • Visual Distraction– an example of this would be taking your eyes off the road to attend to kids in the back seat or any other activity that distracts a person’s attention from driving.
  • Cognitive issues– an example of this is daydreaming, which takes your mind off driving.
  • Manual Issues– These are things that require you to take your hands off the wheel, like texting, changing the radio or reaching for something in the car

While Virginia has passed laws that prohibit texting and driving, it continues to be a growing problem. Distracted driving leads to as many accidents as impaired driving, as distracted drivers are 23% more likely to cause an accident.

FAQ

Understanding Your Accident & Injury Claim

Accident Injury claims are often complex legal matters that are difficult for most people to handle alone. Filing a claim is not as simple as filing out a form and waiting for a check in the mail. Most accident victims require the help of a skilled attorney who has intricate knowledge of Virginia’s personal injury laws and experience working with insurance companies to obtain the best results. The attorneys at Trost Law Group use their decades of experience and skills, along with the firm’s extensive resources to meet our clients needs and obtain the maximum compensation our clients deserve.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A CASE?
If you have an injury that effects your ability to live your normal life you should contact our office to protect your rights. Our attorneys have a strong record of success and will review your case to see if we can prove your accident and injuries were caused by the other party’s negligence.
WHEN SHOULD I CALL ABOUT MY CASE?
In most cases, it is in your best interests to start as soon as possible with the collection of evidence and the identification of potential witnesses. In Virginia, the time limit to take legal action against the party responsible for causing the injury is two years. This is referred to as the “statute of limitations”. If you don’t file a lawsuit against those at fault for the accident before the end of that period, you will forever lose your right to file a lawsuit against those responsible for the incident.
DO YOU CHARGE UPFRONT FEES TO HANDLE MY CASE?
Our firm does not charge any up front fees for representation in an Accident or Personal Injury case. We offer a free, no obligation case review to evaluate your claim. Once representation begins we work on a contingency basis, which means we don’t get paid unless you do.
WILL YOU TELL ME HOW MUCH MY CASE IS WORTH?
Yes, at your initial free case review, our lawyers will use their unrivaled knowledge and decades of experience in Virginia Accident & Personal Injury Law to evaluate your claim. We will pursue every option to help you maximize the compensation you will need to recover from your injury and losses.
