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