Weekend Tragedy - Western Albemarle Student Killed

A traffic accident claimed the life of a Western Albemarle high school student this past weekend. The tragedy seems more immediate as I have a daughter who is a student at Western. The Charlottesville newspaper reports indicate that a Domino's pizza delivery vehicle struck the student as he was crossing Route 250. Albemarle police are investigating the cause but have not issued any statements about the cause of the accident. I am not going to speculate about the fault of either party. The tragedy is too overwhelming at this point. However, an effort should be made to collect information such as witness names and physical evidence, if any exist. Sometime, it is surprising what can be discovered. After over 27 years of law practice in Virginia and other states, I have learned to approach each case without prejudging the facts. All information must be collected as soon as possible. A site visit with an expert witness can provide valuable perspective. In these ways, a personal injury lawyer can assist the victim's family and justice can be pursued.
