Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?


Most of the time, to ask this question is to answer it.  If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, bitten by someone else’s dog, harmed by medical malpractice, or hurt in a shopping center or business premises, talking to a personal injury attorney can provide peace of mind, and consultations are usually free.
An accident lawyer can explain your rights and help you evaluate a potential injury claim in terms of liability, damages (also called compensation), probability of success at trial, and the value of settling a case versus taking it to court.  A good car accident lawyer can also tell you how long your case may take and what to expect along the way.
In sum, there is no downside to calling a car accident lawyer if you are hurt.  On the contrary, handling a personal injury claim alone will compromise the claim’s value.  Insurance companies habitually dangle checks in front of accident victims to settle claims cheaply.  Don’t fall for this old trick!
At my personal injury law firm, I am always happy to take calls from injured people who don’t know exactly what to expect.  There is no charge for a phone call or initial meeting, and I only collect attorney fees if I win pain and suffering and other compensation for you.  No hard feelings if you call or meet with me and decide not to have me as your attorney!  I always enjoy meeting new people at my Norfolk, VA office and Hampton, VA meeting location.
I make my schedule around my clients, and I can usually accept calls at any time, so don’t hesitate to contact me for a free case evaluation.
