York County, Virginia - More Than 50 Injured in 69-Vehicle Pileup on Interstate 64

At Least 11 Of The Victims Are Being Treated For Severe Injuries

The chain-reaction crash occurred in the early morning hours, around 8AM, of Sunday, December 22nd in York County.

While the scene was extensive, the wreckage was mostly accumulated on the Queens Creek Bridge which is near exit 238 (Camp Peary) on I-64. State police indicated that a section of the bridge was under construction, though it is not clear if this fact played a part in the pileup. The crashes were not believed to have compromised the integrity of the bridge.

The latest reports from authorities indicated that a total of 51 individuals were transported and treated following the collisions. More than two dozen were treated at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport. Another 21 were taken to Regional Doctors’ Hospital in Williamsburg. Additional victims were also taken to VCU Medical Center (Richmond) and Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center.

Officials believe that icy road conditions, particularly on the bridge, as well as a dense fog could have been a factor in the accidents. An investigation is still being carried out, so no charges have been pressed.

An experienced auto accident attorney and regular contributor to Legal Herald, Kevin Biniazin offered the following insight for persons injured in auto crashes who are contemplating all their legal options:

“While most of us drive in our cars every single day and make it to our destinations without a hitch, getting in an accident is a very real possibility. Millions of accidents take place in the United States every year and, while some of these can be minor, others can be truly devastating.

When the individuals involved in a car crash are lucky enough to survive, they can often suffer severe injuries which can include whiplash, cuts, fractures, bruises, traumatic brain injuries and even quadriplegia, among many more.

Whether a vehicle accident resulted in death or in any kind of injury, victims likely have the possibility of filing an auto accident lawsuit. Through this type of legal claim, victims and their loved ones can pursue a compensation that covers damages including physical and emotional, punitive damages, medical costs and others such as loss of companionship and future income.

While a lawsuit is often the last recourse for victims of auto accidents, it is one that should always be considered. This is because insurance policies are often insufficient in covering all damages. Indeed, when the payout limit on a policy is reached, victims will stop receiving benefits whether they have been made whole or not.

Individuals injured in car accidents should seek out an experienced auto accident lawyer who will be able to examine all of the facts of their case and then lay out all the potential legal avenues that may grant them a compensation for damages suffered.”
