Portsmouth, VA Injury Lawyer Report : Two Are Injured When Car Hits Home in Portsmouth
A car has crashed into a home in Portsmouth, injuring both the driver and a passenger.
WAVY.com reported the accident occurred on Dale Drive around noon on March 8, 2013. The crash may be related to the driver having a medical issue, police said.
WAVY reported that both the driver and a passenger have been transported to a local hospital. It was not immediately clear if anybody was in the house.
Although it may seem unusual for a car to crash into a building, I see this scenario more often that might be imagined, in my work as a Portsmouth, VA car accident lawyer.
In 2011 a man was arrested after driving a car into a business in Hampton, VA. Speed was an issue in that incident.
If you are hurt in a business or home by a driver you may have a legitimate claim against their insurance policy. A passenger who is injured may also have grounds for a lawsuit against an at-fault driver.
