Should I give an insurance claims adjuster a statement about my accident?

The only information that you should provide an insurance company is your contact information. It’s critical for you to speak with an attorney before making any statements about the incident that resulted in injury.

What is the likelihood that my case will go to trial?

An overwhelming majority of cases are settled out of court. If your case does require court action, we have the experience to aggressively litigate on your behalf.

How can I get damages for pain and suffering?

If you have experienced emotional or mental trauma, or if you cannot perform activities that you used to before the accident, then you may be eligible for compensation for pain and suffering.

What determines the amount I might recover?

Each personal injury case depends on liability (the individual or organization at fault), damages (the amount owed to the victim) and the source of collection (insurance or person assets).

What is the maximum I can collect for personal injury?

There is no limit on damage awards for economic losses in Virginia.
