Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Personal Injury Lawyer VirginiaWhen someone is injured because of another party’s negligence, malice, or reckless behavior, in Virginia or in its surrounding communities, a good personal injury lawyer Virginia residents recommend may be able to help the injured person and their family understand what their rights are. When a loved one dies through no fault of their own and seemingly, in a manner that could have been avoided were it not for another party’s negligence (or malice or recklessness) the deceased and their surviving family members also have rights. Discussing the details of a personal injury victim’s experience may help a personal injury victim and/or their family understand whether or not the party or parties that caused (or contributed) to the cause of the injury are liable for expenses related to the victim’s injury.

Kinds of Personal Injury Claims

There are many different kinds of personal injury claims that personal injury victims and their families may be entitled to compensation for. In many ways, the term personal injury is an umbrella that covers the many different kinds of claims.

Personal injury claims are typically made in a civil court in the jurisdiction where the injury occurred. It is not unusual for a defendant in a personal injury claim to also be a defendant in a criminal case. The outcome of a criminal case should not have any bearing on the outcome of a civil case. A key purpose of a personal injury lawyer in Virginia and in many U.S. states is to protect their client’s rights by helping them to seek compensation for an injured person and/or their family.

While it would be difficult to come up with an exhaustive list of all the possible personal injury claims, some of the more common ones are because of:

  • Accidents involving automobiles, trucks, motorcycles and other
    vehicles
  • Medical malpractice
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Faulty, dangerous and malfunctioning products
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Rideshare accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Nursing home neglect and abuse
  • Swimming accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Aviation accidents
  • Hotel accidents
  • Public transportation accidents
  • Taxi accidents

A good personal injury lawyer who is located in Virginia is a good place to start looking for answers for people who are unsure of whether or not an injury may warrant a personal injury claim.

Tips for Finding a Highly Rated Personal Injury Lawyer in Virginia and its Surrounding Communities

Research While it may be tempting to go with the first lawyer your cousin or friend or
minister (etc.) recommends, it is important to do research and read reviews. Just
because someone has a law degree does not mean that they are a good lawyer with a
track record of success, nor does it mean that he or she will have a victim’s best interest
at heart. Be wary of personal injury lawyers who charge upfront and/or are going to take
a larger percentage of a settlement or award than what is the industry’s standard.

Experience & Reputation While there is no guarantee that an experienced personal
injury lawyer in Virginia is going to get a victim and/or their family the maximum amount
of compensation they may be entitled to, a lawyer at a law firm with a track record of
successfully defending their clients’ rights is more likely to be able to do this than one
who does not have a history of success.

Awards, Accolades & Ratings The legal community in the United States acknowledges
lawyers and law firms for excellence and achievements through a variety of awards and
publications. There are several organizations that rate lawyers based on their
performances, verdict/settlement amounts, and peer reviews. These can help a personal
injury victim and/or their family to find the personal injury lawyer in Virginia or one of its
surrounding communities that is right for them.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
