Fighting for the Fair Compensation that You Deserve.
We cannot change what has happened to you. We can, however, protect your rights and fight for the fair compensation that you are entitled in order to get the medical care that you deserve.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
We strongly advise that you do not speak to an insurance adjuster about your accident until you speak with an experienced Virginia car accident lawyer. Insurance adjusters are trained to get you to say things that will ruin your case and often even try to convince you that hiring a lawyer is not in your best interest. We recommend that you get help in dealing with adjusters to avoid wrecking your own case.

Statute of Limitations - Deadlines for Filing a Lawsuit
Many accident victims that have taken a “wait and see” approach to find out the hard way that there are STRICT time limitations for bringing a Virginia car accident injury claim. As time goes by and their injuries have not gotten any better, victims then seek help for chronic pain or mounting hospital or medical bills. If you wait too long, the door to justice is closed forever. In Virginia, you typically must file a lawsuit with the court within two years of the date of the accident. If the injured person is a child or a person with a mental disability, this period can often be extended beyond two years.
