After getting medical attention for injuries sustained in an accident, your next priority should be contacting a Virginia personal injury lawyer. An attorney can help you understand the process you need to follow in order to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries. If you have been injured by someone else's carelessness or negligence, your expenses will likely include medical bills, property damage, lost wages,physical therapy and rehabilitation costs.
The person or persons whose actions contributed to your car accident or injury should be responsible for covering any associated damages. An experienced Virginia personal injury lawyer is a valuable resource in getting the compensation you need to achieve the fullest recovery possible.
Car Accident Lawyer
When you are the victim of personal injury, you suffer not only physically and emotionally, but financially as well. Recovering your physical and emotional health should not be complicated by the stress of financial burdens associated with your treatment, rehabilitation, lost wages, and property damage. When you turn to a Virginia car accident lawyer for help, you rely on a professional who knows what you will need to recover financially and who can aggressively pursue the necessary compensation.
It is important to understand your right to pursue compensation for your injuries after an auto accident. It is generally not in your best interest to sign any waiver, agree to any settlement offer, or issue any statements without the advice of a skilled attorney. Insurance companies will frequently try to settle for less than you deserve and much less than you need for maximum recovery. Your Virginia auto accident lawyer can look out for your best interests now and in the future when negotiating or litigating for maximum compensation for your injuries and suffering.
If you are struggling to get the compensation you need, you may feel angry, confused, or betrayed. It seems unfair that you are left to deal with the consequences of another person's negligent or reckless actions. Through the legal expertise of an experienced personal injury attorney, however, you can hold accountable those whose actions precipitated, caused, or contributed to your car accident and injury. The distracted driver who caused a rear-end accident that left you suffering the pain of whiplash or spinal cord injury should be held liable for the suffering you have endured. The reckless or drunk driver who veered across the center line causing a devastating head-on accident should be accountable for his or her actions that lead to the catastrophic injury or wrongful death of an innocent car accident victim.
Those who are at fault for the auto accident should demonstrate financial accountability for their careless, negligent, or reckless actions. Though personal injury law is about responsibility and restoration rather than retribution, many accident victims can gain a sense of justice or closure from a satisfactory settlement or judgment.
The term "car accident," by its very nature, implies a lack of intent. The person who causes a serious auto accident rarely takes the wheel with the intention of harming someone. However, just because a person did not mean to cause an accident does not mean he or she could not have prevented an accident. A person texting while driving may not notice traffic signs or signals, causing a failure to yield accident in Virginia. This distracted driver did not intend to cause serious harm to anyone, but his or her careless action--choosing to pay attention to the cell phone rather than the road--caused an auto accident that creates tremendous physical, emotional, and financial hardship for the injured accident victim.
Whether you are suffering from sprains, strains, broken bones, lacerations, back injury, spinal cord injury, nerve damage, head injury, or brain injury, it is important that you focus on your fullest possible recovery. Let a skilledVirginia auto accident attorney handle your legal affairs and work to get you the financial recovery you need while you keep your attention on your health and your family. Rest assured that the attorneys of Price Benowitz LLP are on your side, protecting your interests as you recover from your injuries and get back to your life.
Medical Malpractice Lawyer
If you have been injured while under the care of a medical professional, you may be able to make a medical malpractice claim and recover the damages.. Medical malpractice is a broad term that encompasses a lot of different potential causes of action within the medical services field,, and the attorneys with our firm will be able to evaluate your case to determine whether the injuries you suffered were a result of the negligence of a medical professional. Our evaluation may include one of more attorneys, as well as the use of non-attorney professionals with knowledge of the standard of care for that particular procedure or condition.
An area where medical malpractice is of rising concern is in nursing homes, where each patient may require a significant and continuing amount of care. Many nursing home malpractice issues are a result of simple negligence, like medication errors and failure to treat new conditions. But there are issues like mistreatment and slips and falls may give rise to additional causes of action against the institution as well as the specific medical professionals assigned to the elderly person’s care.
There are some types of medical malpractice that might be overlooked because they are just minor parts of a normal hospital experience, but they could be a breach of the standard of care upon further investigation and evaluation. . Issues like infections, anesthesia errors, surgical errors, improper drug use, unrecognized drug allergies and drug overdoses may all create issues of negligence or malpractice, depending on the unique facts and circumstances of each case. Our experienced attorneys will be able to assist you in evaluating your potential medical malpractice claim, examining the relevant documentation, listening to your questions and concerns, and engaging the assistance of experts, if necessary.
Slip and Fall
While the term slip and fall seems pretty straight forward, there are a number of issues related to this area of personal injury litigation that make it difficult to determine if you have a valid claim without speaking to an experienced slip and fall attorney to evaluate your case.
One of the main issues in any slip and fall case is notice. A slip and fall plaintiff must be able to prove that the party reasonable for the premises had actual or constructive notice of the dangerous condition, or defect, that led to the fall. A common example of this is the slippery floor sign you might see at the supermarket after an area of the slick linoleum has been mopped or a spill has occurred. If our attorneys can help you prove that the person responsible for the premises failed to take the necessary safety precautions, you might be able to make a monetary recovery to compensate you for the damages you have unjustly endured.

Our attorneys have experience litigating in these courtrooms, and they understand what is necessary to get a positive result for their clients.
Fairfax County is home to some of the most traffic filled roads in Virginia due to its large geographic size, its dense, suburban population, and its proximity to the District of Columbia. Many commuters use the interstates and major highways of Fairfax County on a daily basis. The Beltway, I-95 and I-66 are the major interstate highways, but State Routes 7, 29, 123 and 286 (formerly 7100) are all roads that are extremely busy throughout the day, and as a result, see a high number of car accidents on a regular basis. If you have been involved in a car accident in this area, and you believe that you are entitled to damages, our attorneys may be able to help.
