2011 pileup on I-77 sparks lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

Attorney Jonathan L. McGrady of McGrady & McGrady, L.L.P., announced a lawsuit on behalf of a person who was injured in a multi-car accident that occurred on March 6, 2011. McGrady said that Kevin Williams suffered a "severe, traumatic brain injury and serious orthopedic injuries".

The suit was filed against the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Transportation on March 5, 2013.

 

McGrady's statement:

Please find attached a lawsuit that you may find of public interest that was filed against the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) on March 5, 2013, 26 days before the recent Fancy Gap Mountain tragedy on I-77 in Virginia. This suit arose from a terrible wreck that happened on March 6, 2011, which we believe could have been prevented by VDOT. The Commonwealth of Virginia has consistently denied my client's, Kevin Williams's, claim and suit had to be filed.

Mr. Williams suffered a severe, traumatic brain injury and serious orthopedic injuries as a result of his wreck and will likely never work again. He has asked that I release a copy of the suit to the media with the hope that VDOT will take corrective measures so that lives may be saved in the future on Fancy Gap Mountain.
