When Tragedy Strikes Twice – Recovering for Injuries Caused by Your Second Virginia Car Crash

You remember the day of your first car accident like it was yesterday. You remember the weeks and months following that accident with vivid detail. You can almost feel the pain and frustration that you worked so hard to overcome so that you could get on with your life.

Now it has happened to you again. You have been hurt in another accident, and you are once again suffering from accident injuries. You thought you knew the drill and understood what you had to do to recover, but this time, there is an added complication that wasn’t present in your first accident. This time, the insurance company is trying to argue that your injuries were not sustained in your most recent Culpeper car accident but rather in your previous crash.

3 Things You Need to Know if This is Not Your First Crash

If this is not your first crash, then it is important to understand what your rights are now. Specifically, it is important to know that:

  • You have the right to recover for the injuries suffered in this accident.
  • You have the right to recover for the full extent of your injuries, even if your injuries were worse because of conditions that existed from your previous accident.
  • Previous recoveries from unrelated accidents have no bearing on your current claim.

In other words, you have the same rights to recover as you would have if this had been your first crash. If someone else’s negligence caused your accident injuries, you may be able to recover for your past and future medical expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket costs, pain and suffering, and other damages.
