What is my Case Worth?

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A VALID CLAIM?
The value of each case is determined on an individual basis. Personal injury allows the victim of negligence acts to receive compensation for medical bills, pain, suffering, psychological and emotional damages and financial losses. The details of each case will determine the final outcome. For example, if you sustained a catastrophic injury, you may be able to receive more as the injury tends to be more severe and has permanent, negative life-altering affects. It is important to remember that every claim is different.

Slip and fall cases can be more serious then medical malpractice, depending on the situation. A knowledgeable attorney will be able to provide you with counsel and advice as to the expected value of your case. We pride ourselves on being able to properly assess our adversary—normally the insurance company—and manipulate every situation to our benefit. When you hire us, we become partners in the pursuit of the maximum recovery possible, whether it is through trial or negotiation.

Is Distracted Driving That Dangerous?

Every year more than two million vehicles are involved in car accidents in the United States. In 2011 alone, the state of Virginia saw over 120,000 traffic accidents, with close to 64,000 people being injured, and 764 fatalities. One of the most common causes of car accidents in Virginia and across the U.S. is the distracted driver. One moment of inattention can lead to a tragedy that could have easily been avoided.

Driving distractions can come in many forms. The three main types of driver distraction occur when an individual takes their hands off the wheel for one reason or another, they take their eyes off the road, or they take their mind off their driving. Eating, changing channels on the radio, using the GPS, personal grooming, talking or texting on a cell phone, or just not paying attention due to wandering thoughts are all distractions to a driver.

Thus it is no surprise that distracted driving is one of the primary causes of vehicle accidents, and cell phone use alone contributes to 18% of all distraction-related fatalities in America. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a car accident you suspect was caused by a distracted driver, you need to contact a Virginia personal injury attorney from our firm right away.
