King William County car accident lawyers
We’re here to help people injured on the Middle Peninsula
King William County is in the heart of Virginia’s Middle Peninsula, and it’s part of the Greater Richmond Region. The historic county is bordered by the Mattaponi and Pamunkey Rivers, which combine to form the York River, which feeds into the Chesapeake Bay.
King William County is a largely rural area, with many winding roads and blind corners. Because of the landscape, car accidents are quite common in the area. We also have an abundance of wildlife contributing to road congestion. In 2017 alone, 58 deer-related collisions happened in King William!
If you’ve been in a car accident in King William, you may need an experienced legal advocate to represent you. At GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we have 75 years of combined experience, and we are former U.S. Marines. Further, we used to work for the insurance industry, as well as prosecute criminals in state and federal courts. So we will put our full skills and knowledge to work for you and your accident claim. For a free case evaluation, call us at (804) 413-6777.
Which road sees the most accidents in King William?
Without a doubt, the Richmond-Tappahannock Highway.
U.S. Route 360 saw most of its accidents where it intersects with King William Road – a total of 35 crashes in 2017 (and 21 already in 2018). State Routes 30, 33, 296, and 298 also saw many injury accidents and one fatality in 2017. King William Road itself, especially heading into West Point, also collected many accidents.
That’s not to say that smaller roads can’t be the scene of a traumatic crash. For example, the intersection at Rosebud Run saw one of three fatal wrecks in 2018.
How weather and road conditions can cause an accident
Many residents of King William County have expressed concern over the condition of many of the area’s rural roads, particularly in the winter months when snow and ice can accumulate. In the winter of 2018, a pickup truck hit a patch of black ice on Globe Road. The resulting accident caused the death of the driver, a 35-year-old mother, and serious injuries to her five children. People who live near the scene of the accident said the deterioration of the road’s surface and lack of shoulders make it exceedingly dangerous.
Why call a personal injury lawyer?
If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a King William County traffic accident, whether because of a careless driver or a poorly-maintained road, you may be entitled to compensation from somebody else or your own insurance policy. Such compensation may include medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of income, funeral and burial expenses, emotional trauma, and more.
