Advantages of a Virginia Personal Injury Law Firm
Additionally, legal counsel will be able to advise you of the appropriate steps to take if, for instance, an insurance company contacts you wanting you to provide information or a statement, or if they offer you a settlement. It is important to keep in mind that insurance companies, and likely any other individuals that can be held responsible for your injury, do not have your best interest in mind.
While a fast settlement offer may seem enticing, more often than not it is to your benefit to hire counsel to advise you, and the injury attorneys at our Virginia office are ready and willing to discuss your case. A personal injury lawyer is principally concerned with representing the interests of his or her client, but importantly, such an attorney is also focused on remedying a harm to protect others.
Whether it be a slip and fall in a parking lot, the negligence of a doctor, a defective product, or pursuing a claim using the Federal Tort Claims Act, a personal injury attorney in Virginia seeks to hold someone responsible so that others avoid suffering needless injury.

Personal Injury Liability in Virginia
Individuals who assume responsibility for the health and safety of others — whether they are operating a business, practicing medicine in a hospital, or simply driving a car on a highway — have an obligation to act in a manner that does not endanger those around them.
In these situations, a moment of negligence or inattention can trigger an accident that leaves innocent victims with extensive physical and psychological injuries, and sometimes even causes death. Such accidents can usually be prevented if the culpable parties practice caution and adhere to proper safety protocols. Unfortunately, when they do not, innocent individuals are often left to shoulder the burdens that can result from injuries incurred in an accident, such as a brain, burn, or spinal cord injury.
When this happens, Virginia personal injury law grants injured victims the right to pursue compensation for damages and harms and losses suffered as a result of another’s negligence. Virginia injury statutes cover many kinds of preventable injuries from auto accidents to premises liability injuries, that occur as a result of recklessness, carelessness, negligence, and malice. Some of the specific types of injuries we cover include:
- Paralysis Injury
- Neck Injuries
- Knee Injuries
- Back Injuries
- Electrocution Accidents
- Amusement Park Injuries
Our lawyers are familiar with practicing personal injury law throughout the state of Virginia.

Looking For The Best Virginia Injury Lawyers For Your Case
The key to searching for effective and competent counsel is to not look for “the best lawyer or law firm,” but rather to look for attorneys who you feel are best-suited to represent your interests in your case. The law is complex and very broad, and it is important to look for an attorney who is both qualified to practice in your jurisdiction and who has experience handling your type of case. For example, bankruptcy attorney typically does not handle criminal defense cases or environmental law matters.
The same is true for looking for “the best Virginia injury lawyers.” There is no such thing. Even within the practice of injury and accident cases, it is important to look for an attorney who has sufficient experience to represent you. One easy way to do this is to schedule a consultation and ask, but another way is to look at reviews from former clients. Although former results cannot predict or guarantee similar or favorable outcomes in the future because every case is unique, it can give you an idea how former clients feel about their representation.
Most importantly, you should consult with an attorney to learn more about them and whether they would be a good fit for you. Look for a lawyer or law firm who you believe you can trust and build a fruitful attorney-client relationship with. A lawyer with experience will have access to trustworthy and reliable expert witnesses. In our opinion, an attorney should be honest, responsive, and should understand your goals.

Review By Google User
This is the first online review I've written but I was so impressed by the attorneys at Price Benowitz that I wanted to post something. I don't have much stomach for lawyers or litigation but I was injured and got referred through two different friends. The preparation for my case was amazing. There was no fact or legal theory unturned. My lawyer had even detected a history of negligence by the other side. We had done so much advance homework that when the demand letter got sent they offered a settlement immediately and we negotiated very favorable terms.
