What is covered in a lawsuit after a car accident in Virginia?

With over 200,000 accidents each year in the state of Virginia, you may be wondering if you really need a lawyer. While some injured victims prefer to settle their accidents with insurance adjusters, others pursue attorneys to help with their cases. With most lawyers offering free consultations, why not have a meeting to discuss your options? And most attorneys will not charge fees if you do not win your case.

Some accident victims are unaware of all that could be compensated due to an injury. In addition to vehicle repair or replacement, accident victims in Virginia can be compensated for:

  • Medical expenses (medical testing, medical devices or aids, physical therapy, hospital stays, surgeries, on-going medical treatment, and emotional therapy)
  • Any lost wages due to the injury as well as any future lost wages (including a necessary career change or inability to keep working)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Virginians involved in car accidents receive 3.5 times more compensation when they are represented by skilled attorneys. Each case is different and complex in its own way. Why not find out if an experienced Virginia car accident lawyer can help in your specific situation? For a free consultation, contact the attorneys at Shevlin Smith. Call 703.591.0067 today.
