No car accident is easy. From fender benders and rear-end collisions to
intersection accidents and highway wrecks, all car accidents have the
potential to result in injuries and various challenges for victims. Whenever
an auto wreck that could and should have been prevented causes victims
to incur damages they would have not otherwise faced, they have the right
to file a claim for compensation.
car accident is unique, as is the impact these wrecks have on the lives of victims
and their loved ones. At The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC, our Virginia car
accident attorneys generally advise all victims who suffered injuries
in auto accidents to contact our firm following a wreck. When they do,
we can closely review the unique facts of their case to determine if they
may have a valid claim for compensation. While we provide free case reviews
for victims who suffer injuries in any type of wreck, we do not handle
cases involving property damage only. Often, property damage cases can
be resolved without the assistance of a lawyer.
Having helped numerous residents across the state throughout the years,
we know that not every victim involved in a wreck knows their rights,
or knows when they should call an attorney. To help you better understand
why and when you should work with a lawyer after a preventable wreck,
we’ve put together the following information:
Injuries and medical treatment – Any time you are injured by another’s negligence, including
the negligence of another driver, you should not have to bear the burden
of paying for your medical bills. The costs of any initial medical evaluations,
surgeries, rehabilitation, and other follow up care stemming from injuries
sustained in a preventable wrecks can be recovered through a personal
injury case. Unfortunately, the personal injury claim process can be complex
and prone to challenges from the defendant and their insurance provider,
which is why legal representation can make the difference. By speaking
to an attorney from our team, you can not only find the assistance you
need to secure the right medical treatment, but also the support of attorneys
who can help you navigate the process while you recover and fight for
full and fair compensation for all relevant expenses.
Other damages – In addition to putting you in position to recover your medical
bills, working with a personal injury lawyer can help you recover any
other damages resulting from the preventable wreck. This can include property
damage, the costs of psychological services, a recovery of lost income
caused by missing work, and more. It can also include compensation for
your emotional injuries, and in the case of serious or catastrophic injuries,
compensation for the emotional suffering sustained by your loved ones.
Future needs – Serious car accidents commonly result in injuries that require
long-term care or even life-long medical attention and accommodation.
These future needs can also be recovered from the at-fault party with
the help of an attorney. At The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC, we take any future
medical needs of our clients into account when pursuing compensation to
ensure they have the resources to repair and rebuild their lives.
Leveling the playing field – If you are involved in a serious car accident, do not expect the
insurance company to automatically compensate you. In fact, insurance
providers will often work diligently to pay as little as they can, and
will leverage their extensive assets when doing so. By calling an attorney
as soon as possible after a wreck, you can gain the support of advocates
who have the experience and resources needed to create a level playing
field with large insurance corporations.
Remember, you have the right to take action against the party responsible
for causing your accident and injuries, and you have the right to do so
with the support and representation of a lawyer. Having a lawyer on your
side can make the difference in any car accident case where you depend
on fair compensation to cover your losses, and especially so when wrecks
are severe and result in serious injuries. The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC
has decades of combined experience fighting for victims injured in auto
accidents, including those involving
commercial trucks and catastrophic injuries. We know how to guide clients through these
