We Go The Distance For Our Clients


When you have suffered injury from an accident which was the result of the negligence of another person or entity, you may not know where to turn for help. Each and every year hundreds of thousands of Americans are involved in a work injury, a slip and fall in a public place, a car collision with resulting injuries, medical malpractice injuries or injuries which result from a dangerous drug or a clearly defective medical product or device. Most of those who are injured are completely unfamiliar with how the legal system works as well as woefully unprepared for the amount of paperwork required and deadlines which must be met when a personal injury lawsuit is filed.

Perhaps you have suffered injuries from an accident which have subsequently affected your health, your work, your future, and your loved ones. The effects of an accident with injuries could last for weeks, months, or—in the case of catastrophic injuries—years, or even a lifetime.

Our attorneys are dedicated to pursuing our clients’ claims and obtaining results, whether through settlement or trial.

Frequently Asked Questions

Read All FAQs

You should always call the police following a Virginia auto accident. Under Virginia law, you are required to call the police if there are any injuries, a death, or if the property damage is more than $1,000. Even following a minor fender bender, the damage to the vehicles is likely to be more than $1,000, simply because the bodywork is so expensive. It is almost always a good idea to contact the police following a car accident so you will have a police report to give to your insurance company.
Particularly when the accident was clearly the fault of the other driver, you will want that information in a police report to avoid the driver saying later the accident was not his or her fault.

It is almost never a good idea to accept the first offer from an insurance company. Despite the many commercials we see on television which shows insurance companies as our friends, the goal of all insurance companies is to pay out as little as possible on a claim—in other words, their financial bottom line is what they will be thinking about, rather than your injuries and your future. Insurance adjusters are trained negotiators. This means no matter how “helpful” your insurance adjuster may seem, his or her job is to protect the interests of the insurance company by minimizing the amount of money paid on each claim. Particularly when the other driver is at fault in your car accident and you are attempting to file a claim against his or her insurance company, that insurance company is not obligated to treat you fairly.

Calculating the dollar value of a personal injury claim can be difficult. Since the circumstances of each case are different, there is no set formula attorneys can use for every case. However, our attorneys always consider certain factors when determining the value of a personal injury case.

Yes we do. In the case of a catastrophic injury, the emotional, physical and financial aftermath can be particularly devastating. Catastrophic injuries are generally considered to be those which will require multiple surgical procedures, a high level of supervision, and ongoing rehabilitation and assistance for the remainder of the victim’s life. Severe burn injuries, back and spinal cord injuries, brain trauma, neck injuries, internal organ injuries and paraplegia or quadriplegia are all considered catastrophic injuries. Because the victim of a catastrophic injury may never regain the ability to work—or even handle such simple tasks as bathing, eating and dressing—it is essential that financial compensation from the negligent party is sufficient for the future.

Our attorneys care about your injuries. Hiring experienced attorneys is necessary to get the best results.
