In Richmond, there are on average over 5,000 car accidents and 20 crash fatalities every year. For months or even years after a collision, the resulting injuries can change your world as you know it, leading to frustration and uncertainty about the future.
Under Virginia law, you may be entitled to compensation if you have been injured in a car crash through the recklessness or negligence of another driver. Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:
- Future medical costs
- Past medical costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of economic opportunity
- Funeral expenses
- Pain, suffering, and inconvenience
What Should I Do in the Event of a Car Accident in Richmond?
Most insurance companies will contact you as early as the day after the crash to try to obtain a recorded statement about your injuries and your accident. Before speaking with any insurance representatives, you can protect yourself by reaching out to Allen & Allen to discuss your situation.
You are under no legal obligation to provide insurance companies a statement, and if you do, it may be used against you during the settlement process. If you have a case, our experienced Richmond lawyers can help you:
- Obtain a fair settlement offer for damages through negotiation.
- Collect evidence may need to be presented to protect your claim to appropriate financial compensation for your injuries.
- Pursue uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage and medical payments coverage from your own insurance company.
- Recover damages you are entitled to from the negligent driver’s insurance company.
The circumstances behind every car wreck are different, but one fact holds true — the time immediately following the crash can be disorienting. Our convenient Glove Compartment Quick Reference Guide will help you navigate the steps to take after an accident.
