Patient Injured in a Fall Is Awarded $3.5 Million Against Riverside Regional Medical Unit in Newport News
A man from Emporia in Virginia was among the casualties when a car crashed in Brunswick County, Virginia, killing two.
The Virginian-Pilot cited a Virginia State Police press release that reported the accident occurred just after 11 p.m. on Friday night in the 4300 block of Belfield Road. A 2003 Toyota Camry was traveling quickly on Belfield Road when it lost control, ran off the road and hit a tree.
Both the driver and passenger were killed, according to the press release. They were not wearing safety belts, according to the police. Investigators are still determining if alcohol played a factor in the crash.
Police later identified the driver as 21-year-old Marcus Lemard House of South Chesterfield. The passenger was identified as 25-year-old William Franklin McDowell of Reese Street in Emporia

My thoughts as a Virginia car accident injury lawyer are with the families of these two young men who died. When passengers are killed due to the actions of a driver, their families often have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the insurance company of the at-fault driver.
Our Virginia wrongful death lawyers can advise you of your rights. No amount of money can compensate for the loss of a loved one, but often a death will leave the deceased’s dependents in serious financial circumstances.
About 770 people died in vehicle crashes in 2012 in Virginia. Although only a small number of families who’ve lost loved ones in such accidents file wrongful death suits in the Commonwealth, many more could do so to seek financial compensation for medical expenses funeral expenses, future income of the deceased, health insurance and other work benefits.
