Experienced personal injury lawyers serving Fairfax, VA and surrounding areas
Sudden, life-altering personal injuries come in many forms. Incidents such as car crashes are usually not “accidents.” Instead, some kind of negligence, or a lack of care, typically causes these incidents. The same thing applies to pedestrian and bicyclist injuries. Similarly, property owners usually have a duty to inspect their premises and prevent slip-and-fall injuries. Finally, doctors must adhere to a very high standard of care. Any lapse in this area usually gives rise to a medical malpractice claim.
These victims deserve both compensation and justice. At Leary Porter Law, we work hard to obtain both. The financial compensation gives families the resources they need to move on in life. The justice gives victims closure.
If you, or someone you know has suffered a physical injury or trauma as a result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim. If an injured individual dies following the incident or as a result of the negligent act, that individual’s family may bring a “wrongful death” claim in the name of the deceased person. Although a lawsuit cannot undo the events which have taken place, the law does permit financial compensation to be awarded to the injured individual or their family when certain conditions are satisfied.
How Can We Help?
Juggling the stress and anxiety of managing medical treatment while communicating with insurance companies is difficult enough. It’s almost impossible to manage these things while pursuing physical, emotional and mental recovery. Consultation with an attorney can ensure that you understand your rights and obligations in the situation as well as any deadlines which may apply to the filing of a claim in the case. If a claim cannot be amicably resolved with the responsible party, or the insurance company, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit in order to obtain favorable resolution and fair compensation for your claim.
Leary Porter Law coordinates the collection of records necessary to effectively pursue a personal injury claim, identifies individuals well-qualified to offer expert opinions regarding the facts or circumstances of a case, and negotiates the settlement or, if necessary, litigates a claim with the responsible party or their insurance company. Our assistance removes the burden of stress you must endure as a result of someone else’s negligence and permit you to focus on your medical treatment and your recovery.
