Reasons to Call a Virginia Accident Attorney

If you have been injured in an accident or incident caused by the negligent actions or behaviors of another party or parties, under Virginia law, you have a right to bring a personal injury lawsuit against that party. When you retain the services of a seasoned Virginia injury attorney, you may be able to recover financial compensation for the losses and expenses that you have suffered as a result of those injuries. These damages can include medical expenses, loss of income, pain, and mental anguish.

Virginia car crash lawyer

As one of Virginia’s top personal injury law firms, our attorneys have successfully helped numerous clients who were accident victims in obtaining the damages they deserved for their injuries. Although there are many different types of accidents that can happen, the types of accidents which result in the most injury claims include:

Car accidents: Car accidents are the major cause of accident injuries and deaths, with more than 37,000 people killed each year in this country, and more than 2 million injured.

Tractor-trailer accidents: Many victims of truck accidents do not survive the crash, and for those who do, they are often left with catastrophic injuries. Truck accident claims are often more complex than other types of accident claims because there is often more than one party – the driver, the trucking company, the freight company – who may be liable for the crash.

Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists face a 35 times greater risk of being killed in a crash than occupants of other motor vehicles. Our Virginia law firm has represented many motorcycle crash victims who were left with devastating injuries due to the lack of protection a motorcycle offers in the event of a crash.

Pedestrian accidents: Almost 6,000 pedestrians die every year after being hit by a vehicle, with hundreds of thousands more seriously injured. Almost 20 percent of those accidents are caused by hit and run drivers.

In addition to the above types of accidents, our Virginia personal injury firm also aggressively advocates for victims who suffer injuries because of dangerous or defective products, medical errors and other malpractice incidents, boating accidents, and premises liability accidents.

If you or someone in your family has been injured in an accident, we are available to meet and discuss your case and how we can help.
