We represent bicyclists and pedestrians who have been struck by careless drivers, including drunk drivers or hit-and-run motorists. Our practice covers all of Northern Virginia.
In fact, our detailed knowledge of the different legal and strategic considerations that apply in Virginia personal injury claims can give our clients a significant advantage, especially if you suffered your bicycle or pedestrian accident away from your home state.
Because children and elderly people are especially vulnerable to pedestrian accidents, we believe it’s critical to the outcome of these cases to contact witnesses soon after the accident and preserve their statements. In our experience, bystanders are eager to help injured older or younger people, but you need to locate these witnesses early in the process. We know how to do this, and to preserve their testimony in the correct way.
The injury claims of children and seniors need special attention, too. While someone in the prime of life can usually expect a complete recovery from a clean fracture, a child could face an uncertain prognosis from a serious bike injury, and an elderly person could lose the ability to live independently in an otherwise routine accident.
We provide complete client service for bicycle and pedestrian accidents. In other words, we work not only to help you recover enough money to cover the full range of your losses and future needs, but also to answer your questions and deal with the practical problems that can come up when a family needs to focus on caring for an injured loved one.
