Car Accident and Fatalities Down In Virginia
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on May 28, 2009 in Car Accidents
I have good news to report. Traffic fatalities in Virginia were down over the recent holiday weekend (Memorial Day). Five people died on VA Highways over the holiday weekend. This is the lowest number of Virginia deaths on the highways over Memorial Day Weekend in ten years according to the Virginia State Police. Last year 18 people died in fourteen car crashes, and this was the highest number of fatalities since 1998. The average number of deaths on Virginia highways over Memorial Day Weekend is 14. This year the deaths occurred in Loudoun County, Clarke County, VA, Bland County Virginia, Pittsylvania County, VA and Tazewell County, VA.

The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in VA is 2 years from the date of the accident. The claims need to be brought by the Personal Representative of the Estate of the deceased.
