Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Virginia

The National Center for Health Statistics, an arm of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, reported more than 125 million outpatient hospital visits were made in 2015. In addition to these outpatient visits, nearly 900 million visits to physician offices were made around the country in the same year. A more detailed analysis indicates that 93% of children and nearly 84% of adults received services from a healthcare professional during that time.

Clearly, Americans regularly put our health and trust in the hands of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. Indeed, for many Americans, frequent doctor visits are a routine part of life, and we value and rely upon the unique expertise of our chosen medical professionals. Unfortunately, our trust is sometimes violated by the negligence or unreasonable behavior of those professionals, and each year many people are catastrophically injured or lose their lives as a result.

When you have suffered as the result of an avoidable medical mistake, you may feel you have more questions than answers: Why did this happen? How will I support my family while I recover? What about my job? Do I need a lawyer to help me?

The lawyers at Allen & Allen understand that you may feel your life has been shattered, and we have made it our mission to help you put the pieces back together.

What Should I Do in the Event of Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional makes an unreasonable mistake that results in an injury or death.

Under Virginia law, injured persons have only two years to file a medical malpractice suit if their injury qualifies. Because it can take months to collect the medical records and other evidence necessary to determine if you have a viable case, and because the statements of experts and their analysis and opinions of those records could add several more months to the overall case assessment period, it is recommended that you seek the advice of an attorney as soon as possible.

At Allen & Allen, our team of experienced lawyers, in-house investigators, and network of medical professionals use their skills to collect evidence and build a solid case on your behalf while you focus on your recovery.

If you or a family member has been injured due to the actions of a healthcare professional, don’t wait to contact a lawyer. Don’t wait to begin rebuilding your life.

Injury Types


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.
