We Help You Recover the Compensation You Need
Expenses add up quickly following an accident, unfortunately at a time where it may be difficult or impossible to generate an income. As important as the expenses and lost income you are aware of, however, are the future expenses and losses that you may face.
The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC will take into account the money required to make you whole.
If reaching maximum medical improvement restores you to your life prior to the accident, we will work hard to ensure your settlement includes:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- “Pain and suffering” and inconvenience
If, however, you reach maximum medical improvement and cannot return to your job and quality of life, we will ensure you recover compensation for reduced earning capacity, future medical bills, and any “pain and suffering” and inconvenience” your injuries are likely to put you through.
This might mean retaining a forensic economic expert as well as medical experts to provide opinions and testimony on your physical limitations, their effect on your future earning capacity, and the loss of resulting benefits (such as contributions to a social security earnings record, 401(k) investments or other income).
If your loved one died in a car accident, the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC will help you pursue your loved one’s damages (such as final medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, and the victim’s pain and suffering) as well as damages to surviving family members for loss of companionship, loss of guidance, and loss of the decedent’s income.
Whether you are seeking justice for yourself or on behalf of a loved one, the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC can help you.
We Help You Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable
To recover the compensation you need, we must prove the party in question behaved negligently. Proving negligence requires establishing:
- The driver owed you a duty to drive safely.
- The driver did not uphold that duty.
- This failure led to your accident and injuries.
- You suffered damages.
Evidence we might need to prove negligence includes:
- Photos of the accident scene and your injuries
- Eyewitness testimony
- Police report
- Cell phone records
- Red-light camera footage
- Surveillance footage
- The other driver’s side of the story
We Will Not Let an Insurance Company Take Advantage of You
Insurance companies make their money by holding onto it. They often use shady tactics to do so. Some of the tactics we will protect you from include:
Tricking You into Saying Something to Jeopardize your Claim
Soon after an accident, you will likely receive a call from an insurance adjuster. While the adjuster might seem understanding and warm, she has one job: save the insurance company money. She might attempt to convince you to admit that you were doing something at the time that caused or contributed to your accident. This would allow the insurer to deny your claim.
If she cannot get you to admit fault, she might trick you into admitting that your injuries are not as severe as you originally claimed. This can end up costing you thousands.
Offering You a Low Settlement
While it may be tempting to accept what seems like a generous offer at the time, the best way to make sure you are receiving a fair settlement is submitting your case to a Fairfax car accident lawyer for review.
What seemed like an attractive sum of money at a critical time may look quite meager down the road when you are facing limitations and expenses that you did not anticipate when you released the insurance company from liability. (Once you sign a settlement agreement with an insurance company, there is no turning back. You cannot ever file another claim or lawsuit for more money, even if you later discover injuries or complications you did not realize you had when you signed the agreement.)
There may also be additional contributing factors and other responsible parties involved in your case. It is important to review the cause of the accident from multiple angles to identify all potentially responsible parties and pursue compensation from any liable defendant. This may require that an attorney request documents, subpoena records, take depositions, and retain expert witnesses.
