Norfolk Personal Injury Lawyers with Experience

Norfolk personal injury lawyers handle claims and lawsuits that injured people bring against those who are responsible for their injuries. These claims involve asking for money for the pain and suffering that the accident left behind. This may sound scary or stressful, but a skilled attorney stands by your side every step of the way.

Personal injury cases in Virginia Beach and Norfolk can come from a lot of situations. The most common examples are cases from:

  • Car accidents — Car crashes can range from common rear-end collisions to deadly intersection wrecks
  • Truck accidents — Virginia’s ports and highways such as I-95, I-81 and I-64 are major traffic hubs with a lot of big rigs
  • Motorcycle accidents — The downside of the thrill of riding on the open road is a large number of accidents and injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) — TBIs can require expensive, life-long medical care that you should not have to try to afford alone
  • Railroad accidents — Railroad employees have a right to sue for railroad accident injuries that happen at work
  • Wrongful death — If a loved one dies because of the actions of another, we are here to help you through this tragic time

In all of these cases, you do not have to say the other person meant to hurt you. Instead, you have to prove that they were careless, which caused your injuries. This may seem hard, but a Virginia Beach personal injury lawyer can help. Our injury attorneys in Norfolk and Virginia Beach can handle the legal stuff so you can focus on getting better while knowing your case is in good hands.

Important First Steps After Being Injured

If you were in an accident, the other person’s insurance company will do everything they can to avoid paying a claim. They may try to get you to say you were responsible or that you do not have the injuries you are claiming. The best way to avoid being taken advantage of after an accident is to have a Virginia Beach personal injury attorney on your side who knows the tricks insurance companies will try to pull. We can take the stress out of the process for you.

Taking certain steps right after your accident can help reduce the chances of the other person’s insurance company blaming you for your injuries. For example, in a car accident, you should immediately contact the local police. Not only is this required by law, but the police officer will write a report saying what happened. This report may have important information, like the other guy was issued a ticket for poor driving or even said that he caused the accident.

Next, call a local Virginia Beach personal injury lawyer. We can help you avoid saying anything that would hurt your case and fight for your best possible outcome.
