Under Virginia law, you can bring a claim against a driver who is at fault for the accident. Drivers are at fault when their negligence leads directly to your accident.
There are many types of negligence. Breaking a traffic law is one example. But negligence really means that a motorist did not operate their vehicle with sufficient care. Examples include:
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Driving while distracted
- Talking on a cell phone or sending a text message
- Failure to yield
- Failure to use turn signals
- Not checking a blind spot
Drivers are also at fault when they engage in aggressive or reckless driving, such as:
- Driving while intoxicated or high
- Illegally passing
- Driving on the sidewalk
- Pulling into a crowd
- Driving while tired
If you believe that the driver who struck you was negligent or reckless, you should be able to bring a claim against the driver.
