Virginia Beach Car Accident Lawyer
If you’ve been in an accident in Virginia Beach, find a Virginia Beach car accident lawyer you can trust when you need it most.
Everyone’s seen it; someone texting while driving, or reaching for something in their car. A tire blows out; an animal runs across a busy highway; someone misses a stop sign. There are so many events that can lead to a car accident. Many of these events lead to accidents that are often fatal.
There are more than 8.5 million residents in Virginia. A state with this large of a population is home to nearly 130,000 vehicle crashes every year. In 2019, 827 of these crashes resulted in fatalities. Distracted drivers contributed to 80% of all these crashes and 65% of all near-crashes, according to the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles. What’s more troubling is that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death of people aged between 5-19.
Car accidents aren’t only caused by distracted drivers. Accidents may occur because of drivers:
- Driving under the influence
- Poor road conditions
- Wrong-way driving
- Animal crossings
- Tire blowouts
- Construction sites
If you or a loved one was involved in an accident in Virginia Beach, the Joel Bieber Firm is ready to fight for what you deserve. If you suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence, know that our team will hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for your losses, both mentally and physically.
Following any accident, you must attend to any injuries you’ve sustained. Call the police if the authorities haven’t been notified, and if you’re able to, begin gathering as much information as possible about the accident details. Info such as the driver, vehicle make, and car registration are all important data to provide to the police.
Even if you feel like you don’t have injuries, it’s best to seek out medical attention. In some cases, you might not feel pain at first because of the adrenaline following the accident. However, a few days might pass and you might start feeling the side effects of your accident.
The worst thing you can do following a car accident is to settle with the negligent party’s insurance company. Insurance companies are simple-minded businesses; they want to settle for the bare minimum so they can maximize profits. Insurance companies will make your life difficult to ensure they don’t have to pay out what is rightfully owed to you. Insurance companies may even tell you that you don’t need a lawyer. Never accept an offer from an insurance company without first contacting an attorney.

What’s REALLY Happening with
Auto Accident Claims
CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 aired a three-part report that revealed the underhanded tactics that many insurance companies are using to save themselves billions of dollars by reducing claims paid to minor-impact crash victims. These tactics – dubbed the “Three Ds,” delay, deny and defend – are discussed in the reports by former insurance industry insiders. CNN’s investigative team’s research and interviews revealed that multiple major insurance providers have employed these tactics during the course of the past 10 years. The result: 80 percent to 90 percent of accident victims settling without a fight for the small sums the companies offer. Often, these sums are as small as $50 and $100 when the victims are facing thousands of dollars lost.
