Car accidents are an unfortunate fact of life. A total of 121,763 traffic crashes resulting in 741 fatalities and 65,114 injuries occurred in Virginia in 2013, according to the DMV. Nationwide, 32,719 people died and 2.31 million were injured in motor vehicle accidents in 2013, as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

If you find yourself in such a situation, you can rely on the knowledgeable car accident attorneys at James F. Aspell, P.C. We believe that negligent drivers should be held accountable and that accident victims are entitled to full compensation for their injuries.

Types of Car Accident Cases Our Car Accident Attorneys Handle
Our firm has the skills, experience, and resources needed to stand up to insurance companies whose representatives are primarily interested in the company's bottom line. Please feel free to browse our website pages explaining the different typoes of Connecticut car crash cases we handle including:
- Head-on collisions: The laws of physics make this type of collision particularly devastating because the speed of both vehicles combined magnifies the force of impact.
- Rear-end collisions: Even “minor fender-bender” rear-end collisions can cause serious neck and back injuries with long-term effects. High-speed rear-end collisions can be even more devastating to vehicle occupants.
- Side-swipe collisions: This type of accident can cause serious injuries to the person occupying a seat on the side of the vehicle where the impact occurs, as little protection is provided by the door of a passenger vehicle.
- Multi-vehicle crashes resulted in 10,318 deaths in 2013, as reported by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
- Rollover Accidents: Pickup trucks and SUVs are more likely to be involved in fatal rollover accidents than other passenger vehicles, according to the IIHS.
