Experienced Virginia Car Accident Lawyers Stand Up for Injured Clients

Charlottesville law firm helps victims of vehicle collisions seek compensation

Injury-causing car accidents can have serious financial consequences in addition to their damaging physical and emotional effects. When an accident was caused by another party’s negligence, a knowledgeable car accident lawyer can help you pursue compensation to pay for your medical expenses and other losses. At Tucker Griffin Barnes in Charlottesville, we have helped thousands of Virginia clients seek payment when they have been injured in vehicle crashes. You can rely on our firm to put our significant skills and resources to work to safeguard your rights and protect your interests.

Committed attorneys represent people harmed in various types of accidents

Car accidents happen in many different ways. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Distracted driving — This includes texting and talking on cell phones and other behaviors that take the eyes from the road and hands from the wheel.
  • Aggressive driving — Moving violations such as speeding, tailgating and weaving put other cars in danger.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs — Even if a motorist is not over the legal intoxication limit, alcohol or drugs could affect their ability to drive safely.

Not all auto accidents are the fault of drivers. Defective car parts, malfunctioning vehicle systems, poorly maintained or designed roads and other things can lead to dangerous crashes. We will examine your injury case from all angles to determine liability and advise you about your options going forward.

Diligent lawyers help Virginians who have suffered catastrophic injuries

Serious car accidents can cause major injuries and permanent disabilities that require expensive and ongoing medical care. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, paralysis, severe burns and lost limbs are some examples of catastrophic injuries that can occur in auto accidents. Sadly, injuries such as these sometimes are fatal. If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, we will fight for your rights throughout the personal injury claims process. If your loved one has died and you are a statutory beneficiary, we will counsel you about your possible right to file a wrongful death claim.

Hardworking litigators pursue compensation for medical bills and other damages

In a personal injury claim, you can request compensation for the losses or damages you’ve suffered because of the other party’s negligent actions. Damages available under Virginia law include items such as:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Time lost at work while recuperating from injuries
  • Lost earning capacity if you can no longer work or if your work is limited
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering

In wrongful death cases, damages can include the value of the wages, care and companionship the decedent would have been expected to provide and more. When our law firm reviews the details of your case, we will help you calculate economic and non-economic losses you’ve suffered to determine the potential value of your claim.
