The Range of Areas Personal Injury Covers
Injuries happen every day in many ways. No matter how you suffered your injury, we could help. Our main areas of focus include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Truck accidents
- Dog bites
- Slip and falls
- Medical malpractice
- Product liability
Negligence is the core aspect in most personal injury cases. If it is absent from your case, the insurance company and/court will not award you compensation. To prove that the opposing party was negligent, your lawyer must show:
- They owed you a duty of care (e.g., obeying all road rules, keeping a dog on a leash, or cleaning up spills promptly.)
- They breached this duty (e.g., running a stop sign, letting their dog roam freely, or not cleaning up a spill once it’s been reported).
- This breach led to your injuries (e.g., a car accident, slip and fall, or dog bite).
- Your injuries have led to subsequent damages (e.g., medical bills, lost wages, etc.)
Evidence will supplement each of these elements of negligence:
- Police reports
- Photographic and video footage from the accident
- Your medical records
- Witness accounts
- Testimony from accountants, doctors, nurses, and economic consultants
Potential Personal Injury Awards You Can Seek Following an Incident in Woodbridge

Serving Our Woodbridge Clients on Contingency
Facing a stack of bills and other financial difficulty is commonplace following any accident. We will not add any more weight to that burden. At the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, our attorney works based on a contingency fee, which means:
- There is no money due up front.
- We don’t require retainers or hourly fees.
- Your attorney charges their fee from your final compensation.
- If they can’t win your case, we still don’t ask for a payment.
With this payment plan, your financial risk is taken into consideration and ultimately reduced.
The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC Can Help You Deal with Insurance Company Tactics
Dealing with insurance companies who refuse to acknowledge their policyholder’s liability or the full extent of your injuries can aggravate you. This lack of cooperation causes too many victims to “throw in the towel” on their case prematurely.
Fortunately, you do not need to handle this process alone.
Our Founder Is No Stranger to Insurance Companies
JJim Parrish is an award-winning personal injury attorney who has firsthand knowledge of insurance companies’ tactics to persuade you to settle your injury claims prematurely. As the son of an insurance industry executive and a former attorney for big insurance companies, Jim can help you break through impasses when it comes to insurance companies.
As such, he is aware of their tactics that attempt to get you to admit liability or accept an insufficient settlement before your damages have been assessed. You can count on him to guide you and protect your rights, including communicating and handling settlement negotiations with the insurance company.
You never have to go through this legal process on your own. Help is here.
Can You Bide Your Time Until the Statute of Limitations Runs Out?
We do not recommend you wait until the statute of limitations runs out. While Va. Code § 8.01-243 generally provides a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits, there is a lot we must do during that time. It is critical to collect details when memories are fresh when witnesses are still available, and before the destruction of paper trails or the revamping of an accident scene.
In addition, failure to abide by this two-year time frame typically forfeits your right to seek any financial recovery from the liable party.
With the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, at the wheel, you can rest assured knowing our legal team will do whatever it can. Your lawyer will gather the evidence we need and file all required paperwork before the statute of limitations expires.
