Compassionate Car Accident Law Firm

Car Accident Attorneys in Central Virginia

More than 6,500 people are injured and nearly 100 more Americans are killed in car crashes every day. For days, months, or even years after a collision, the resulting injuries can prevent you from living the life you are used to, leading to frustration, fear, and uncertainty about the future. At times, it can feel as though you have more questions than answers.

Under Virginia law, you may be entitled to monetary damages if you have been injured in a car crash through the negligence or recklessness of another person. Damages may include reimbursement or compensation for:

  • Past medical costs
  • Future medical costs
  • Pain, suffering, and inconvenience
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of economic opportunity
  • Funeral expenses
  • Grief

What Should I Do in the Event of a Car Accident?

Many insurance companies will contact you as early as the day after a crash to obtain a recorded statement about your injuries and your accident. Before speaking with any insurance company representatives, you can help to protect yourself by contacting an attorney at Allen & Allen to discuss your situation. You are under no legal obligation to provide such a statement, and if you do, it could be used against you during the settlement process. If you have a case, our experienced attorneys can help you:

  • Recover damages you are entitled to from the negligent driver’s insurance company.
  • Pursue uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage and medical payments coverage from your own insurance company.
  • 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.

While the circumstances behind every collision are different, one fact holds true for all—the time immediately following the crash can be stressful and confusing. Our convenient Glove Compartment Quick Reference Guide is an invaluable aid to help steer you through the crucial steps to take right after an accident.

Injury Types

Catastrophic Injuries

Any injury that affects the functioning of the spine, spinal cord, skull, or brain can lead to limited cognitive functioning and mobility. Permanent disabilities as a result of a severe automobile crash can have a major impact on a victim's quality of life and financial means.

Paralysis

When the damage to the spinal cord is classified as a "complete" injury to the spine, nerve sensation and voluntary movement is diminished, resulting in paralysis. A victim of a car accident with this type of injury will have to deal with physical limitations for the rest of their lives, often limiting them financially as well.

Spinal Injuries

Upon impact in an auto accident, the spine and spinal cord can experience damaging compression that can lead to bone breakage or nerve damage. A spinal cord injury can lead to extensive medical and rehabilitation costs and can impact the quality of life of a victim forever.

Wrongful Death

The death of a family member due to a fatal accident caused by someone else's negligence can be emotionally and financially devastating. While families are left trying to cope with a tragedy, Allen & Allen can help you recover damages through reimbursement or compensation for the dramatic changes that will follow.
