What Is a Personal Injury Lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is an attorney who provides legal services to those who have been injured, physically, psychologically or economically due to the negligence of another person, company, government agency or any other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law and civil wrongs that usually involve unintentional misconduct—like a car accident, dog bite, slip and fall—or intentional conduct like an assault.

At Shevlin Smith, we understand what you are going through and will work hard to ensure you get the justice you deserve. Contact us today for more information about our Fairfax personal injury attorneys. We look forward to hearing from you!

How Can A Personal Injury Attorney Help You?

Having a reputable attorney by your side during this time is essential for providing you with the legal support and guidance that you need. Personal injury claims can be extremely complicated.

An experienced attorney will know the ins and outs of the legal system and will have worked with many individuals facing a similar struggle to yours. Your lawyers will be able to help ensure that you avoid costly mistakes and that you receive maximum compensation for your personal injury claim.

A personal injury attorney will:

  • Take care of the paperwork: There is a great amount of paperwork involved with personal injury cases. Your attorney will handle the paperwork for you, and ensure that everything gets to the appropriate parties, at the right time.
  • Save you time and money: A single mistake on your paperwork or throughout your personal injury case process can cost you both time and money. Having an experienced lawyer by your side who knows what he or she is doing is critical for preventing you from making costly mistakes.
  • Maximize compensation: Your attorney will have the experience necessary to effectively communicate and negotiate with insurance companies, and ensure that compensation is maximized.
  • Provide legal guidance: Having access to objective legal advice is crucial during this time. Your attorney will be able to answer any questions that you have regarding the legal matters of your case and provide you with the legal guidance that you need.
  • Offer emotional support: Going through a personal injury case can be extremely stressful. Knowing that you have an experienced attorney by your side can help to alleviate stress levels and provide you with the emotional reassurance that you need.
  • Effectively represent you: In the case that you need to go to court, your lawyer will be able to effectively represent you and ensure that you receive the best possible outcome for your case. Your attorney is truly your best advocate.

When Should I Reach Out to a Personal Injury Attorney?

If you or a loved one has been injured, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. There are deadlines for filing personal injury claims—known as the statute of limitations—and if you miss these deadlines, you will be unable to pursue legal action against the party responsible for your injuries.

For most personal injury cases in Virginia, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. In some cases, such as medical malpractice claims or wrongful death claims, the statute of limitations may be as short as one year. It is important to speak with an attorney who can determine which deadline applies to your case and take appropriate action accordingly.

The sooner you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer, the better.
