Any case in which one person is hurt by another person's negligent or wrongful action (or inaction) may be considered personal injury. Victims suffer physical pain and mental trauma that may be permanent and life-changing. Physical personal injury can include disfigurement, loss of limb, permanent or disfiguring scars, disability, and loss of one of the five senses.
Cases arising out of automobile accidents are by far the most common type of personal injury today.
After an automobile accident, insurance companies will attempt to settle with you before you consult with an attorney, believing they can settle claims for less with victims who are not represented by personal injury lawyers. It is critical that you speak to an attorney right away, before waiving any of your rights. We represent injured plaintiffs in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Maryland and in the Washington DC area. Our fees are generally on a ''contingency fee basis'' meaning we would receive a percentage of any money we collect for you, but receive nothing if there is no recovery.
If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident and suffered personal injury, please contact our office. We will review the information you provide and may contact you to discuss your legal options. We will diligently arrive at a timely settlement or proceed to trial to obtain the compensation you deserve.
