Car Accidents in Northern Virginia

A car accident is a very common occurrence that can completely disrupt your life. If you’ve been in an accident, you may be experiencing injuries, vehicle damages, and more. You’re probably asking yourself “How will I pay my treatment bills?” or “How will I support my loved ones while I get well?”

With car accidents, damages typically fall into one or more of these four categories:

Paying for Medical Bills

A sudden increase in medical bills, at the very least, can have a devastating effect on your financial goals. In some cases, accident survivors struggle to make ends meet because of growing medical debt. Some of the most common injuries sustained from car accidents are:

  • Connective tissue damage to the muscles, ligaments, or tendons
  • Spinal injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Arm and leg injuries

Dealing with Lost Wages

“Lost wages” describes the earnings you would have made during the time you missed work while you were injured. A simple process for calculating your lost wages is to:

  1. Identify your daily wage
  2. Identify how many days you missed
  3. Multiply those two numbers

Even though you have lost time from work but did not actually incur any lost wages, under Virginia law you can still claim the lost wages.

Managing Pain and Suffering

If you are in physical or emotional pain after your accident, you may be eligible for compensation related to that pain and suffering. We are here for you as you determine the next steps you might take.

For more tips and resources that can help you deal with pain and suffering after an accident, read our blog post on Measuring Pain.

Fixing Auto Damage

If your auto damage was paid by your own collision carrier, then that carrier owns that claim. What that means is that if you are allowed to claim that same damage in your lawsuit, then you need to pay that money to your collision carrier.

The extent of the physical damage to your car however may be significant as far as proving the severity of the impact.

You should not sign any releases dealing with your injury claim without having them reviewed by counsel. Likewise, you should not accept any checks from the other insurer unless you are ready to settle with them. It is not wise to do that until you know the full extent of your injury.

Your compensation comes in the form of either a settlement or a judgment. A settlement simply means that you’ve reached an agreement with the insurance carrier for the at-fault motorist for a particular dollar sum. If you go to trial, then a judgment may be awarded in your favor which hopefully is covered by insurance.
This depends on where the injury occurred and also some other factors. In general in Virginia, most personal injury claims are governed by a two year statute of limitations. There are however exceptions to that. The statute of limitations means that a lawsuit must be filed at the local courthouse within that time frame, otherwise your claim is dead.
