Haymarket, Virginia is a small, scenic town in western Prince William County. It lies very near the Warrenton office of Dulaney, Lauer & Thomas. Because of this, we've handled numerous cases arising from Haymarket auto accidents. Recently, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles published its list of auto accident statistics - "2012 Virginia Crash Facts." According to DMV, Haymarket was the site of 28 auto accidents, 2 caused by drunk drivers. We know this figure is deceptively low, as it only reflects accidents occurring within the very small town boundaries (only 0.5 square miles). The reality is that several thousand people live just outside town limits (in western Prince William County) in new neighborhoods located along Route 15. Additionally, Route 15 has become a major commuter artery from Fauquier County into Northern Virginia. For these reasons, the area around Haymarket has seen a large increase in auto, motorcycle, and truck accidents. In recent years, attorneys in our Warrenton office have represented a growing number of clients from the Haymarket area with serious injury and wrongful death cases. It seems that most of these clients would rather hire local counsel in Warrenton as opposed to travelling further into Northern Virginia to hire an attorney. Haymarket is indeed a growth hub, and unfortunately that has resulted in more traffic accidents. At only 10 miles away, our Warrenton office stands ready to assist those injured in accidents.
