More than 6,500 people are injured and nearly 100 more are killed in car crashes every day. For days, months, or even years after a collision, the resulting injuries can prevent you from living the life you are used to, leading to frustration, fear, and uncertainty about the future. At times, it can feel as though you have more questions than answers. How will I pay my medical bills? How will I support my family while I recover? What about my job? Do I need a lawyer to help me? The sad reality is that many accidents are not accidents at all - they are caused by the preventable carelessness or recklessness of others. The law protects those harmed by negligent parties and allows the injured to seek compensation for their pain and suffering.

In far too many cases a claimant's case can be hurt because he/she did not see a doctor or therapist quickly enough or because he/she did not do or take steps that would help the claim. Insurance companies will employ significant resources to challenge your claim in order to minimize its value or use their resources to defend it to the best of their ability.

Under Virginia law, you may be entitled to monetary damages if you have been injured in a car crash through the negligence or recklessness of another person. Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:

  • Past medical costs

  • Future medical costs

  • Pain, suffering, and inconvenience

  • Lost wages

  • Loss of economic opportunity

  • Funeral expenses

  • Grief

Many insurance companies will contact you as early as the day after a crash to obtain a recorded statement about your injuries and your accident.  Insurance companies are often quick to offer less than fair insurance settlement offers, especially when they know that you are not represented.

Before speaking with any insurance company representatives, you can help to protect yourself by contacting an attorney.
