Offices in Virginia Beach & Newport News, Serving All of Virginia
A serious accident or injury can completely change your life and the lives of your loved ones. If you were injured yourself or have lost a loved one in an accident or other situation caused by no fault of your own, it is important to consider your right to compensation. This may not be at the forefront of your concerns at the moment, but medical bills will pile up and you may lose income if you are unable to work. A fair settlement or award can not only bring peace of mind in knowing that the responsible party has been brought to justice, but it can help you work toward a more stable future.

Personal Injury FAQ
How do you know if you have a strong personal injury case?
Your personal injury case could be strong or have a good chance of convincing the insurance company to offer a fair settlement if you have ample evidence of liability. The more information you have that shows how the defendant contributed to your injuries, the better. No case is guaranteed a win, though. To understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case, you should work with a local personal injury attorney.
What damages am I entitled to?
You can sue for economic and noneconomic damages after being in a bad accident that leaves you seriously injured. Economic damages relate to tangible costs, like medical bills, lost wages, and property repairs. Noneconomic damages relate to abstract consequences of injuries, like pain, suffering, and a lessened enjoyment of life.
How long will it take to settle my claim?
Your personal injury claim could settle in about 6 months if it runs an average course and there are no heated contests with the opposition. The more challenges and complexities that arise, though, the longer it will take. It is not unusual for some claims to take a year or longer before a fair settlement agreement is reached.
Do all personal injury claims go to trial?
No, most personal injury claims will never reach the courtroom because the majority settle before a lawsuit is officially filed. Companies prefer settlements because they are private and confidential. If your case needs to go to trial, then there are probably significant complications and contests about liability.
