Tom Curcio has dedicated his 35-year career to practicing personal injury law in Northern Virginia, a region with a population approaching two million residents and an ever-expanding road system. The Curcio Law team have represented hundreds of people seriously hurt in automobile accidents. Our civil justice system is based on the simple notion that everyone is expected to exercise reasonable care while driving. In the driving situation, reasonable care means obeying the rules of the road, i.e., stopping for stop signs and obeying speed limits. When a driver violates a traffic law, causes an accident, and hurts or kills someone, they are legally responsible to compensates the injured person for all the harms caused by their negligence.
Damages include compensation for all the medical bills incurred, lost wages, physical injuries, physical pain, mental anguish, and inconvenience. To competently represent a client in an auto accident case, it requires a thorough knowledge of the traffic laws, a complete understanding of automobile insurance policies and the law relating to such policies, familiarity with anatomy and medicine, the ability to work with medical experts, as well as trial experience. The team at Curcio Law has the necessary experience and access to the expertise required.
Despite ever-evolving vehicle safety features and stricter driving laws, car, truck and motorcycle accidents still happen quite often on Virginia’s roads and highways. The reasons for these accidents vary, but many of them are preventable if drivers take the time to understand the most common hazards on the road better.
The following are some of the most common causes of car crashes resulting in personal injuries in the Alexandria area:
Because cell phones are so common and are a well-known distraction on the road, many states, including Virginia, have passed legislation to curtail the use of these devices while driving. Although our commonwealth has not outright banned the use of cell phones in the car, it has made it illegal for drivers under the age of 18 to talk on a cell phone. Further, all drivers regardless of age are restricted from text messaging while operating a motor vehicle.
Again, if you or a loved one has been injured in a car, truck, or bus accident, you will be well-served by consulting a law firm experienced in handling such cases. Such a consult will help you understand your rights and how best to protect them. The team at Curcio Law is ready to assist you.
