One of the areas where our personal injury attorneys practice on a regular basis is the city of Hampton, Virginia. The city has a wide array of businesses, historical sites, and residential areas. For example, Hampton added the Peninsula Town Center in 2010, which used to be the Coliseum Mall. There are also residential developments at Buckroe Beach, a resort area in the city.
Along with its eclectic community, Hampton is heavily traveled by commuters and tourists. It is located directly next to the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel (HRBT) on Interstate 64 (I-64) and traffic all flows to and from the docks in Newport News, Virginia as well. While the volume of traffic that comes in and out of Hampton on a daily basis is great for businesses and the community overall, that volume also means there are numerous serious car accidents and truck wrecks.
If you or a loved one is involved in a major wreck in the city of Hampton or anywhere on the Peninsula, consider contacting one of our Hampton personal injury lawyers to determine your legal rights. Our office is conveniently located at 101 Eaton Street in Hampton, less than a half mile away from the Hampton Circuit Court, and convenient to Newport News also.
Serious Hampton Car Accidents
Our Hampton personal injury law firm has handled hundreds of auto accident cases since our founding in 1985. We understand that a car accident can be a traumatic experience, leading to weeks – or even months – of painful recovery.
Whether you get hurt while driving down Mercury Boulevard, U.S. Route 17, Virginia State Route 134, or any other road, we are here to help. Our team of experienced Hampton car accident lawyers are skilled negotiators and will work diligently to get you the best possible settlement amount based on the circumstances of your case. We also won’t hesitate to take your motor vehicle accident case to trial if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair and just settlement.
Serious Hampton Truck Accidents
An accident involving a large commercial truck like a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, or big rig can have devastating consequences. In most of these accidents, when the truck and car collide, the occupants in the smaller vehicle bear the brunt of that damage. The injuries they suffer can be severe, even life-threatening.
If you or a loved one was seriously hurt in an accident involving a tractor-trailer, you should speak to a Hampton personal injury lawyer right away. Why? Because trucking companies employ teams of insurance adjusters and defense lawyers who quickly visit the scene of an accident and begin examining ways to reduce or deny your potential claim.
Our team of Hampton personal injury lawyers understands how to handle major truck accident cases. For example, we represented the family of a man who was killed when a commercial driver in a tractor-trailer rear-ended his passenger vehicle on Interstate 64 (I-64). We were able to secure a $3.5 million settlement for the victim’s only surviving daughter.

- Pedestrian and crosswalk accidents

Proving Your Personal Injury Case in Hampton, VA
One of the most critical pieces of any personal injury case is the medical evidence that proves the full extent of the client’s injuries. It is this evidence that often holds the most weight in determining not only the client’s economic damages – such as medical bills and lost wages – but it also helps determine how much non-economic damages the client is entitled to for pain and suffering, permanent disability, scarring, and more.
However, unless you have a medical degree, medical evidence can be complex and difficult to understand. That’s why you need a skilled attorney who is able to take that evidence and break it down into relatable information for a mediator, jury, or judge to understand.
Our Hampton personal injury attorneys understand there are a number of ways to express and simplify medical evidence, using these methods successfully to present medical evidence during mediations and jury trials during our decades of practice.
