What Are The Most Common Causes of Car Accidents in Richmond?

Virginia’s Drive Smart Annual Report shows that 967 deaths occurred on roadways throughout the state last year. A worrisome increase of 15% from the previous year. On average, 161 people were injured DAILY in crashes across the Commonwealth.
Of the 22,479 speed-related accidents reported in 2020, 406 resulted in fatalities while 11,528 resulted in injuries.
6,624 alcohol-related crashes were reported in 2020, 272 resulted in fatalities, while 3,986 resulted in injuries.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3,142 people were killed by distracted driving in 2020. // Talking or texting on cell phones contributed to 80% of all crashes in 2021.
Getting behind the wheel fatigued isn’t just dangerous—it’s reckless. Studies show that driving a vehicle while significantly exhausted is just as dangerous as if you were driving drunk. Because of the constant demands of everyday life, many adults struggle with sleep deprivation or fatigue. Especially those in the tractor-trailer industry, who are up against tight deadlines and unforgiving schedules regularly.
Tailgating is one of the most common causes of rear-end collisions, whether it’s because you were trying to rush to your destination or weren’t paying attention. When driving, it’s suggested you follow the three-second rule, as best to avoid accidents and give you plenty of time to react to any changes in traffic flow.

What Is My Claim Worth?

Every client is entitled to know what a lawyer thinks their case is worth, but making that assessment without the full story is counterproductive. That’s why at the beginning of a case, getting all the necessary information together is crucial to deciding whether or not you have a strong case.


Some of the most pertinent factors when determining the total dollar amount of the case include medical bills and the severity of any injuries. Aspects like lost wages are typically determined further into the case. Other factors that can contribute to your case are individual in nature, like your like-ability and credibility. This outsider perspective of you can contribute to how doctors, jurors, and even the insurer respond to you and your claim.


Although this might seem like a long-winded way of saying “you’ll know when you know” about the value of your case, our attorneys will give you a rough estimate of the case as soon as possible. And before they begin negotiations with the insurance company. We prepare every case as if it’s going to go to trial, making sure the decision to settle or take it all the way to court is up to you.

Is There A Time Limit For Filing A Car Accident Claim in Virginia?

Yes! An injured person has two years to file a claim in court for personal injuries. But, it’s critical you file promptly after a serious car accident—in part due to insurance carriers following strict deadlines. Insurance carriers can delay or deny a claim that is not reported promptly to their institute.

Passenger Cases—And Why They’re Different

Passenger cases are different in a few ways. For the most part, passengers are not at fault in causing the collision. Because of this, they may have a claim against both drivers if they were both found negligent.


If the passenger has a claim against their own driver, in many cases a friend or family member, your attorney will work with you to see how this affects your case.


One of the most important things to understand is that the settlement is going to be paid out by the insurance company, not the individual at-fault driver. In light of this, even in a case where the potential at-fault driver is someone you know, your attorney can assure you that the claim will never involve asking your family or friend for money. Just the responsible insurance company.


Many times, this scenario is never a reality, as many passengers do not believe their driver was at fault in any event.

Consider Speaking With An Attorney, Even After A Minor Accident

Life can be busy and stressful. So when you shake off what you thought was a minor car accident, you likely aren’t thinking about talking with an injury attorney. It’s down the road when those minor aches and pains don’t go away, or get worse. Chronic pain can present in different severities, and can drastically affect someone’s quality of life. If you have been injured in a car accident, we urge you to speak with a personal injury attorney about your injuries.

Other Related Injuries

Whiplash isn’t the only injury car accident victims can, or do, sustain. A passenger’s back, hips, pelvic area, and knees are also at risk of injury during a collision. Herniated discs are one of the most severe and common injuries from car accidents, in addition to tears in ligaments surrounding passenger’s knees.

Reckless Drivers

Despite the agreements drivers make when being issued their license, like to abide by the rules of the road, distracted driving accidents are a daily occurance. Negligent and reckless driving decisions are among some of the most common and hazardous choices any driver can make.

Jonathan represented me for nearly a year in a case where my constitutional rights were violated. His patience and steadfast dedication led to just compensation. I took Jonathan's advice when I could've taken a quicker and easier path and because I listened to him - the outcome was better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend Halperin Law Center - especially Jonathan - in any case dealing with the constitutional rights violations.

The team at Halperon was very personal, professional and responsive in helping me get a fair result from a car accident. I never felt like a case to them, but a person, and they cared about my outcome, which meant a lot. Hoping I never need them, but if I do, I know where I’ll go.

I would highly recommend Mr. Halperin for any type of personal injury case. He was honest and upfront (which I appreciate) about what to expect and he delivered exactly as promised. His staff was also great to work with, Erin & Tammi especially. I hope I am never in need of a personal injury attorney again, but if I do find that I need one, I would definitely not hesitate to call on Halperin Law Center again. Thank you for everything!!

Halperin Law Firm was such a help to me after being rear-ended by a box truck! I am thankful to be alive and even more thankful this law firm helped me to settle. They handled all paperwork and interactions with the other attorney. I felt completely comfortable and confident from start to finish. I would highly recommend this team.
