Motor Vehicle Collisions
If a person has died as a result of negligence, the family of the deceased may hold a wrongdoer responsible for the loss of a loved one. The fatality could be caused by an auto accident, premises liability, work injury, medical malpractice, construction accident, nursing home neglect or abuse, or from other types of negligence.
Family members may be entitled to recover for several types of damages and losses, including: pain and suffering of surviving family members, funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of the future earnings, punitive damages.
Our law firm has extensive experience in litigating accidents involving trucks and tractor-trailers. Trucking accidents account for a high percentage of motor vehicle fatalities. Common causes of trucking accidents include driver fatigue, jackknifing, rollovers, inexperience, overloaded or improperly loaded trucks, and improperly maintained trucks.
Our attorneys will determine who was at fault and assess the full extent of your injuries with qualified medical professionals. We employ experts in collision reconstruction and examine every detail of your case.
If you have been injured in a car crash in Virginia due to the negligence of another driver, you may receive damages (including lost wages, loss of income, medical expenses, mental anguish, and other harms) resulting from the collision. We will prosecute your case fully to make up for the harm you have experienced. Time is essential to preserve evidence so contact us immediately for a consultation.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, hospital, clinic, or nursing home fails to provide adequate medical care. We conduct a thorough investigation of every client's case.
When reviewing a medical negligence case, we are careful not to take on a doubtful claim. A poor result alone does not necessarily mean there is a case. Medicine is not a perfect science and some risks are inherent in many medical procedures. However, when a medical provider deviates from acceptable medical care and results in serious injury, we prosecute malpractice to the full extent of the law.

Traumatic Brain Injury
Injuries can occur in seemingly harmless situations when products used in everyday life are defective or suddenly malfunction. If you have been injured by a commercial product because of a defective design, defective manufacturing, or because you were not adequately warned about a product’s inherent dangers, contact us for a free consultation.
It is vital to immediately contact an attorney if you have been seriously injured or if you have lost a family member due to a defective product. Preserving the malfunctioning product is essential to maintaining your case.
Defamation involves damaging the reputation of another party either through written or oral communication. If one business or individual defames another business or individual, the injured party may be able to seek reparation for harm done to them including the damage to their reputation.
In some situations, plaintiffs must prove that lies were intentional. The plaintiff may also have to show damage by false statements. Expressing an opinion is usually not actionable, although the difference between merely stating an opinion and making statements of fact must be analyzed by an attorney with experience in defamation cases.
Lawyers can be held liable for malpractice because of professional negligence or because they have violated their client’s trust and directly caused you injury or economic harm.
Legal malpractice includes claims such as:
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain from an outside force that causes a change in brain function. Even mild brain injuries can take a long time to heal and expose the victim and their family to colossal medical expenses on top of lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Insurance companies understand the financial distress that brain injury victims experience and seek to delay compensation for as long as they can. We have wide-ranging experience obtaining compensation for TBI clients and their families throughout Virginia.
