We help victims of many different types of accidents recover compensation for back injuries, brain injuries, burns, and other physical trauma.
We pursue claims against negligent drivers, employers, healthcare providers, landowners, business owners, dog owners, and others. We help our clients recover such damages as:
- Bills for past medical treatment
- Anticipated future medical care
- Lost wages or self-employment income
- Lost earning capacity
- Loss of defined benefits or contribution plan

- Loss of company-subsidized health insurance
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- “Pain and suffering”
- Property loss
- Funeral, burial and cremation expenses (in wrongful death cases)
Depending on how your accident affected you, we might need an expert witness to help prove damages with the certainty that an insurance company or court requires. We might also need experts to testify about the cause of an accident as proof that the other party or parties was/were negligent.
We can call upon an expert in the area to help establish your right to damages.
The Insurer Offered Me a Settlement Already. Should I Take It?
No. Chances are that settlement is much lower than what you deserve. If you accept a settlement and later find your injuries are worse than you originally believed, you will likely need to pay out of pocket for any costs incurred after you accepted the settlement.
Run any settlement offers by us before you make any decisions. We will ensure it covers all your losses. If not, we will negotiate until you receive an offer that does.
How Jim Parrish Can Help Your Case?
While insurance adjusters might express an interest in helping you, their top priority is saving the insurer as much money as possible. This often means employing tactics to devalue or deny your claim. The path to settling a case with an insurance company can be a treacherous one if you do not know how it operates. As a former insurance defense lawyer, Jim Parrish has first-hand insight into the tactics insurers use.
This insight allows him to anticipate any tricks the insurer might try to play and to bolster your case against it before it is too late.
We Determine All Responsible Parties and Hold Them Liable
At Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, we do not simply stop with the obvious solution to your case. Occasionally there are multiple layers of contributing causes and potentially more than one liable party.
We will establish the four elements of negligence for every involved party:
- The party(s) in question owed you a duty of care;
- The party(s) breached its duty of care;
- But for the breach, you would not have suffered injury; and
- You suffered physical, emotional, or financial harm.
Whether the wrongdoer is a small business, large corporation, truck driver or company, doctor, or other negligent party, the burden of proof is the same. We cannot recover compensation without meeting each of these four elements.
We Are Not Afraid of Taking an Insurance Company to Court
While we always attempt to settle your case before trial, this is not always possible. We will not hesitate to file a lawsuit and deploy our trial team if the insurance company refuses to offer you a fair settlement.
Do Not Let Time Become Your Enemy
Virginia’s statute of limitations gives injured parties two years to settle a claim or file a lawsuit. However, you should begin working on your case as soon as possible as waiting this long to take action can have adverse consequences.
Everyone with whom you have ever spoken about the accident can become a witness in the case. Unfortunately, victims sometimes unwittingly jeopardize their cases by waiting too long to obtain witness statements.
It is important to capture all eyewitness statements and other evidence as soon as practicable while memories are fresh and before documents disappear. These tasks are often most effective when an attorney or professional investigator undertakes them.
