It’s interesting to review this summary of Virginia car accident data from the state Department of Motor Vehicles. The report covers data from the years 1974-2009, and most notable is the decrease in fatal car crashes in Virginia compared to the increase in the number of auto accidents that cause injury. In fact, while the number of registered vehicles in Virginia has more than doubled in those 35 years and the number of licensed drivers in Virginia has almost doubled, overall car accidents and car accident fatalities in Virginia have decreased.
However, the data isn’t really painting such a rosy picture when it comes to Virginia car accident statistics. Virginia car accidents resulting in injuries and the overall number of injuries caused by car accidents have steadily increased. In fact, a car accident is increasingly likely to leave you injured afterwards. Dealing with the injuries sustained after a serious car accident can be daunting. If you find yourself as an injured victim of an auto accident in Virginia, particularly in the Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, or Northern Virginia area, please contact a personal injury attorney today!
