My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Virginia
I was driving my car on a semi-lit road (in the evening) when I struck a fallen tree limb which ended up damaging my car.
I noticed that the large tree branch (approx. 25' in length) which was partially in the road had fallen from a very large three on a person's property. After my initial shock, I called my insurance agency and the police (to file an event report). I wanted to know if there are any VA (Fairfax County) laws regulating home owners for clearing fallen trees, branches and debris from the roadway in a reasonable amount of time. I feel upset that this accident could have been prevented if the tree was cleared from the road; I am asuming that the large branch was downed by the recent snow storm about a week ago.
Thanks in advance.
