Everything you need to know about what information to collect following
an accident. Make sure to ask the other driver for information which can
be found on their driver's license as well as for insurance information.

A green light is not an automatic go. One must use ordinary care when

in the intersection.

Unfortunately, accidents do not only affect adults. Children are often
injured in Virginia automobile accidents as well. Many people wonder who
gets the money from a child's personal injury case. Short answer:

comes in the form of reimbursement for medical bills. Claims of this nature
must be filed separately from the child's injury case in Virginia.
Only 4 states and the District of Columbia enforce strict contributory

an unfair situation for victims of auto accidents in Virginia.
