Our team will help you prove the negligence that led to your accident and the value of your resulting damages. A Fairfax personal injury lawyer from the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC can calculate your losses, negotiate a settlement, and fight for what you deserve. We’ve recovered more than $20 million in damages in the past few years alone. Now, we’re ready to put our knowledge and resources to work for you.
What You Can Expect From Your Free Case Review
During your free case review, after listening to your story, we can explain your legal options. Our representatives may also ask you the following questions:
- When did your accident happen?

- Va. Code § 8.01.243 typically gives you two years to file an injury lawsuit.

Your Evidence Will Tell the Story of Your Accident
More personal injury cases are settled out of court than in. Insurers and drivers typically do no want to go through this process, and they may offer a settlement or agree to an offer. We’re ready to represent you no matter if you accept an out-of-court settlement or your case goes to trial. No matter what, we handle all cases with diligence and care.
We will make sure to collect evidence of negligence and present it to the at-fault party and their insurance provider. The evidence we collect will include:
- Medical records and bills that demonstrate the cause, cost, and severity of your injuries
- Employment records that prove the extent of your current and anticipated loss of income
- Your police report which gives us contact details and accident details including causes and contributing factors
- Mechanic records and blue book values that prove the cost to repair or replace your damaged vehicle
Our investigators compile this evidence, and our personal injury lawyer applies it to the appropriate areas of your case.
We Will Not Hesitate to Go to Court if Necessary
If your case is one of the rare ones that goes to trial, we will not hesitate to represent you. The trial process can be more time-consuming and involved than getting an out-of-court settlement. Our team will handle it for you from start to verdict. The steps we take on your behalf include:
- Interviewing witnesses and taking depositions
- Preparing you to give your testimony at trial
- Reviewing and scrutinizing all evidence submitted during discovery
- Presenting your case to a judge or jury
You do not have to fight a court battle on your own. Our team will handle the entire trial process and help you keep fighting for the financial compensation you deserve for the at-fault party’s negligence.

How the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC Can Prove Your Personal Injury Case
We must prove another party caused your accident to recover the compensation you need. More than one party could have caused your accident. Our Fairfax injury attorneys will not let any potentially responsible party off the hook if they’re liable.
Our Lawyers will Establish Duty of Care
First, we must establish that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care. They should act in a manner expected of another reasonable person. For instance, in collisions, all motorists must drive safely. Dog owners must keep their pets from causing harm.
Our Legal Team will Prove a Breach in That Duty of Care
Next, we must prove that the party in question breached their duty of care. Going back to the previous examples, a speeding motorist violates their duty of care by putting others at risk of harm. A dog’s owner violates their duty of care by letting their aggressive dog off the leash.
We Must Establish That the Other Party Caused Your Losses
Our lawyers can prove that the other party’s negligence caused your accident, through the police report, eyewitness testimony, and security camera footage.
We Must Demonstrate That You Suffered Injury-Related Losses
Lastly, our team must prove that you incurred damages. We can do this by using your medical records, employment forms, and testimony from economists.
Our Legal Professionals Can Protect You Against Unfair Insurance Companies
Unfortunately, even with an airtight case, insurers will often offer you less than you deserve. We have no problem going toe-to-toe with unscrupulous insurance agencies, however.
Jim Parrish of the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC has personal firsthand experience with how insurance companies treat victims. Attorney Parrish has extensive experience litigating victim’s claims and started his career in the insurance defense industry.
Wanting to advocate for claimants’ rights, Attorney Parrish founded his own law firm. You can learn more about our commitment to your case’s success during your free case review.
