Personal Injury Lawyer: Car Accidents

Whether your collision was caused by a distracted, drunk, drowsy or drugged driver, a Virginia personal injury lawyer can help you and your loved ones seek the justice you deserve.
- Tractor-Trailer Truck Accidents or Collisions: Truck drivers are highly trained but even the most experienced can find themselves drifting to sleep at the wheel after a long shift. If you have been involved in a truck accident, a Virginia personal injury lawyer can ensure you get the compensation you deserve from the negligent driver responsible for your injuries.
- Motorcycle Accidents: While motorcycle riders are stereotyped as daredevils, they are far more frequently the victim of someone else’s bad driving than of their own. A Virginia personal injury lawyer can help motorcycle accident victims get the compensation they deserve from reckless drivers.
- Bicycle Accidents: Drivers who fail to yield to cyclists can be held responsible for the injuries and damage they cause in collisions. A Virginia personal injury lawyer can assist victims in fighting for the settlement they deserve.
- Pedestrian Accidents: When you walk around your neighborhood, you expect to be safe. Crosswalks, stop signs and traffic signals all help to protect you from vehicles in the roadway. Unfortunately, sometimes drivers ignore red lights or don’t stop at crosswalks. In these situations, pedestrians can be hit and may suffer serious injuries.
Jones Act & Maritime Accidents

Personal Injury Lawyer: Dog Bites & Attacks
- Dog Bites & Animal Attacks: Dogs may be man’s best friend, but when they lash out, they can do serious, long-lasting harm. Irresponsible dog owners can and should be held liable for the damage their pet does to others. A Virginia personal injury lawyer will fight tirelessly to ensure the victim is not stuck with expensive medical bills associated with the attack.
