Hampton Roads Drunk Driving Accident Injury Attorney
Drunk driving is a serious threat to our national highway safety. Over two million accidents a year in America involve drunk driving resulting in 350, 000 injuries and 10,000 deaths. In Virginia, a person is driving if he has a blood alcohol content of greater than 0.08. Virginia law allows for punitive damages in cases involving drunk drivers.
Section 8.01-44.5 of the code of Virginia allows for punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages for accidents involving drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.15 or greater.
