Virginia Car Accident Attorney
Call (571) 290-2390 for a Consultation
Were you recently injured in a car crash in the greater Alexandria area
or elsewhere in Virginia? If you face serious medical bills and lost wages,
don't delay - you may have the right to pursue compensation for all
of your accident-related costs. Virginia injury laws limit the amount
of time you have to seek compensation after an accident.
You only have two years to file a claim or lawsuit. Each day that passes may diminish your ability to collect fair compensation
as evidence may become lost or destroyed.
Call our offices today at (571) 290-2390 to schedule a case evaluation.
If you prefer, you may use this
confidential form, and our staff will contact you.
Our team is well versed in all of Virginia's car accident laws. We
understand how to advocate effectively for your best interests, both inside
and outside of the courtroom. The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC has
helped thousands of accident victims recover fair compensation to address medical costs, lost income, and other injury-related expenses.
Protection Against Insurers
Did you know Virginia's car accident negligence laws might make it
difficult to recover compensation after a crash? Virginia's pure contributory
negligence law dictates any victim who is found to be even just one percent
at fault for a crash may not recover compensation from a defendant in
an injury lawsuit. Another driver can be 99% responsible for your accident
and still not have to pay you any compensation.
This is why it is so important to have a Virginia-based car accident attorney
on your side.
Attorney Daniel Barrera will work tirelessly to help prove you were in no way responsible for
the accident and are therefore entitled to full compensation in an injury
action. Our team does this by carefully collecting evidence and witness
testimony, and investigating the details of the crash.
Protect Your Right to Financial Recovery
There are a few key ways in which you can protect yourself against Virginia's
contributory negligence laws and the insurance companies who may try to
personal injury claim.
Below are a few steps you can take now to protect your right to damages:
- Do not sign anything from an insurance company or adjuster without first
consulting an Alexandria car accident lawyer. You may inadvertently sign
away your rights to recovery.
- Do not apologize or give any indication that you were responsible for the accident.
- Take pictures of the accident and wreckage. They will be very helpful in
any accident lawsuit, and may actually be the evidence that causes the
insurance company to want to settle, or causes the jury to rule in your favor.
- Immediately visit a doctor. Delays in treatment will only allow the insurance
company to claim that you were not hurt or injured. Keep records of all
the treatment you have received, medical costs, the medications prescribed,
and follow your doctor's advice.
- Turn to our firm without delay for legal guidance.
It is also a good idea to keep a journal. It will be your personal record
of what happened both during and after the accident and will detail all
the physical consequences of someone else's negligence and its long
term effects. Journals help when insurance adjusters try to claim you
are exaggerating pain.
