Any injury can change your life, but typically a personal injury case arises from one that changes your life significantly. Even a broken bone can cause irreversible damage and lifelong pain. On top of the medical concerns that an injured individual has, the financial aspects and battle with insurance companies can be even more frustrating.
I am focused on easing those frustrations and the pain that a personal injury has caused for my clients and their loved ones. The financial burden that they carry is directly the result of another party’s negligence, and I work to make sure that the at-fault party or at-fault party’s insurance company is held responsible and fairly compensates the individual for his or her injury.
I represent clients across Virginia in personal injury cases including:
- Slip-and-fall accidents or trip-and-fall accidents
- Defective products
- Premises liability
- Medical malpractice
- Wrongful death
- Motor vehicle accidents (involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, public transportation, commercial vehicles, etc)
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Accidents caused by DUI drivers
- Any injury that is caused by the negligence of another person
Beyond the initial medical bills that an injured person must cover, there may be other damages as well: for example, lost wages from him or her being unable to work while recovering, a loss of the ability to go back to work and earn a level of income that is comparable to what he or she was making prior to the accident, and long-term medical care that is required for life.
Obtaining an accurate assessment of these needs is crucial to making sure that you are going to be financially secure going forward, so make sure to get an independent medical and legal opinion. My office can help.
