Motor Vehicle Accidents And The Law

A car accident can leave someone with a lifetime of medical problems and other hardships. Many car accidents leave victims with spinal cord injuries, whiplash, brain injuries and other serious impairments. These injuries often leave individuals with substantial medical bills and impede their ability to work and enjoy their favorite activities. An experienced personal injury attorney can help.

In pursuing your case, we must prove that the other person’s negligence caused the car accident. We must also demonstrate how this injury has impacted and will continue to impact your life. Our team has substantial experience and the necessary resources at our disposal to achieve these objectives.

Does Virginia Have A Statute Of Limitations For Car Accident Injury Claims?

In Virginia, the statute of limitations for filing a car accident injury claim is two years from the date of the accident. If you fail to file a lawsuit within two years, you may permanently lose the right to seek compensation for your injuries.

Given the complexity of these deadlines, speaking with our skilled Virginia car accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident can help ensure you preserve your right to seek compensation. Even if you are not yet ready to file a claim because you want to give your recovery more time, your attorney can keep track of deadlines like these on your behalf.

Why Is It Important To Speak With A Virginia Car Accident Lawyer Before Accepting An Insurance Company’s Settlement Offer?

It is important to speak with a Virginia car accident lawyer before accepting an insurance company’s settlement offer because:

  • Insurance companies will usually offer you a settlement that is much lower than the true value of your claim to save money.
  • Insurance companies may try to pressure you into accepting a settlement offer quickly, preventing you from seeking further compensation for your injuries.
  • Insurance companies may not fully understand the extent of your injury. A car accident lawyer can help you evaluate the true value of your claim, helping you receive fair compensation.
  • If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, an attorney can help you file a lawsuit to seek the compensation you deserve and fight for fair compensation in court.

Overall, a Virginia car accident lawyer should be involved before accepting an insurance company’s settlement offer to help ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries. An attorney knows how to properly value your claim, and they are immune to the type of pressure the insurance companies try to apply to get quick settlements.
