Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
It can be an auto accident, bike accident, construction incident, firefighting accident, motorcycle accident, a faulty product, injury on the railroad, a slip and fall accident, truck accident, or even a hunting accident. Below are a few of the areas that our personal injury attorneys specialize in:
Car or Truck Accidents
Car or truck accident attorneys understand the complex situations that may arise after an accident. A crash can result in injuries and damage and we realize the struggle that many victims face when attempting to recover compensation for losses.
Slip and Fall/Premise Liability/Dog Bites
As a property owner, one has the legal responsibility for accidents or injuries that may occur on a property due to a slip and fall accident or even a dog bite. If a person slips, trips, or falls and is a result of a hazardous situation, such as a wet floor with no caution sign or sidewalk that hasn’t been cleared from a recent snowfall, the property owner may be fully responsible.
From the physical pain and suffering to the emotional scars of having to face potential disability or disfigurement, this is truly a situation one doesn’t want to face. Fires and explosions do happen unexpectedly. General equipment explosions, boiler explosions, open flames, electrical issues, oil, gas, and other chemicals-induced issues are situations that may require an attorney to assist with injury-related claims.
If you have suffered an injury based on a wrong diagnosis, surgery went wrong, fraudulent activity by a doctor, errors in prescriptions, or breach of doctor-patient confidentiality, an attorney can present legal options available to you.
Wrongful death mishaps in and around Virginia are a common occurrence. A wrongful death claim can result from situations like a commercial car or truck crash, exposure to hazardous conditions or substances, or general criminal behavior within a work site.
With product liability, claims can result from a variety of sources including the crashworthiness of a car or truck, seatbelts and restraint issues, accidents from brakes or vehicle transmissions, defective fuel tanks, faulty or hazardous industrial or oil machinery, workplace equipment, and tools, household appliances that are deemed unsafe, flammable clothing, toxic chemicals, medical products, pharmaceuticals and more.
Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse is rare, but does happen and typically involves a caretaker or medical professional failing to properly provide for an elderly individual. Common instances that may constitute nursing home abuse are verbal abuse, physical abuse, medication errors, unsafe nursing home environments, inadequate nutrition, bathing or bathroom neglect, a shelter that is of question, or in very rare circumstances, wrongful death.
Recreational Vehicle Accidents
Our lawyers are no strangers to recreational vehicle accidents. We have handled powerboat and marina-related accidents, water skiing gear malfunctions, Jet Ski or Wave Runner accidents, snowmobile wrecks, ATV or four-wheeler incidents, and even camper and 5th- wheel accidents.
Back or Neck Injuries

If you’re unsure whether the pain you are experiencing is something we can help with, we advise you to take advantage of our free personal injury consultation today.
