Tragedy struck a family in Crozet, Virginia this past weekend when a young man was struck by a car. The victim was believed to be crossing Route 250 when he was struck by a Domino’s Pizza delivery car. Although the victim was transported to the university of Virginia Medical Center in nearby Charlottesville, Virginia, he survived only a short while. News reports do not provide much detail as to the facts of the accident and police are still investigating. Initial reports indicated that the young man was skateboarding when the accident occurred. It is believed that he attended Western Albemarle High School. We offer sincere condolences to everyone involved in this tragedy.

In these types of cases, it is extremely important to get an experienced injury lawyer involved as soon as possible. The reason is that evidence needs to be gathered and preserved. At Wilson & Hajek, our personal injury lawyers in Charlottesville work with traffic crash experts and go the scene of an accident to make sure that the facts are determined. All too often, our lawyers are called into a case months or even years after an accident has happened and all we have to rely on is the police report. When there are questions about what happened and who is responsible, the ability of the lawyer to get to the scene quickly and to talk to witnesses early on in the process is invaluable. It is much easier to track down a witness right after an accident has happened. Skid marks and other evidence will still be visible in the days after an accident and such evidence can be useful in determining what happened. For all of these reasons, it is a wise decision to involve an injury lawyer in your accident case.
