Auto Accident Lawyer
Attorneys for Car, Truck, Motorcycle, and RV Accidents
We once called them accidents. No more. Car, truck and motorcycle crashes, says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration1, are always operator error and are crashes, not accidents. Regardless of language, responsibility must be assigned somewhere. Financial responsibility and accountability for the crash must be applied. A skilled attorney can help you get to the cause of the crash and can help you get your life back on track after an auto crash threatens to destroy it.
Hurt in an Accident? Shield Your Rights
When you are injured due to a a car accident, you have little time to worry about shielding your rights and protecting your future. All you can concentrate on is the pain, the suffering, and the lost work.
Virginia laws allow you to recover monetary damages for pain, medical costs, future expenses, and more. If you were injured in a vehicle crash due to someone else’s careless driving, an automobile owner’s negligence in maintaining safe conditions, or as a result of DUI or DWI, you need a caring, hard-working lawyer by your side.
An attorney thoroughly familiar with Virginia personal injury law can shield you from so much that goes wrong after a car, truck, RV, or motorcycle crash:
- Rising medical costs
- Lost work
- Constant pain
- Destroyed or damaged personal property
- Shattered family life
- Psychic injury, inability to concentrate, memory problems
Secure Your Future After an Accident
An accident that causes you injury can drastically affect your future. Can you continue in your current job? Can you still retire at a comfortable age? Do ongoing medical problems, mental acuity issues, or emotional challenges eat away at your quality of life?
What does the future hold? Nobody can know. You may think you have walked away from a vehicle crash with only a few bruises here and there. How can you be sure a neck pain a year from now will not be rooted in the crash?
When caring, compassionate auto accident lawyers work for your interests, they work to secure your future:
- Financial security
- Medically necessary and advisable treatments
- Physical and occupational therapy
Who is looking out for you after a vehicle accident? The other driver? The town or municipality on whose road the crash occurred? No one is looking out for you except yourself, your loving family, and the lawyer you retain.
Undoing the Damage of an Accident
No car accident attorney can return you to the serene life you once led before your crash. That is not the goal, anyway. Your personal injury lawyer from The Firm For Men is compassionate, but practical, too. Your accident attorney will fight hard to undo as much damage as possible, by:
- Securing monetary damages from the negligent or careless driver’s automobile insurance company
- Negotiating a fair settlement for ongoing and future damages
- Gaining payments from your insurance company against an uninsured or underinsured driver
- Recover damages you are entitled to from the negligent driver’s insurance company.
- Gathering firm evidence to bolster the legal arguments for financial compensation, based on the extent and prognosis of your injuries
A Crash Affects Your Family
A vehicle crash that leaves you injured also damages your family. Who is protecting them? You lose work, you feel bad, you grow distant from your children and their mother. Who is compensating you for that?
In the hands of a strong auto injury attorney, you and your family can receive just compensation for difficulties related to the crash:
- Job loss
- Loss of intimacy with your partner
- Feelings of helplessness, impotence, worry, anxiety, or anger
- Impairment to memory, brain function, mood, or relationships
Your personal injury lawyer takes all the lose pieces, all the shattered dreams that were destroyed in that vehicle crash and works to make things right. You are much more than a paycheck to your family. An auto accident lawyer working on your crash case will remind the insurance companies, the courts, and the negligent driver that you deserve to be made right in all ways:
Start Protecting Yourself Now
If we take the NHSTA at its word and accept that crashes are no accident, preventing injury starts now, before you find yourself behind the wheel. Rather than be a victim of another driver’s carelessness, inebriation, or negligence, protect yourself at the start of every trip:
- Know what to do in case you are in a crash
- Equip your vehicle with proper safety devices (flares, flashlight, reflective tape or triangles, and so on)
- Keep emergency numbers handy, and not on your smart phone; keep numbers in the glove box for your personal injury attorney, insurance agent, and family doctor
- Ensure everyone in your vehicle uses seat belts, every trip
If you are involved in a crash, first make certain everyone is safely out of the vehicle and away from traffic. Say nothing to the other driver, such as “I’m sorry, I didn’t see you,” or, “I hope everyone in your car is okay.” Never assume you are thinking clearly, so force yourself to stay quiet.
If possible, take pictures of the surrounding scene, all vehicles, and bystanders. Your accident attorney may be able to piece together the cause and responsibility for the accident from the smallest of clues.
Assess your own injuries, and keep in mind you may not even be aware of soft tissue injuries due to adrenalin and shock. Listen carefully to emergency service personnel and do as they direct.
