If you were seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, contact us for a free consultation. You may be entitled to a cash award from those responsible over and above any compensation from insurance for doctor’s bills or damage to your vehicle. Professionals will evaluate the effects of the accident on your life—including movements or activities you can no longer do at all or that now cause you pain (like sitting, sleeping, walking, standing, lifting, and so on). By carefully presenting this information to the responsible driver’s insurance company or, when necessary, to a court, they can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
If you were injured in an accident and are considering filing a lawsuit, call us at 202-914-1454 or submit your case details online and someone will contact you shortly. You pay nothing unless your lawsuit is successful and you receive compensation.

Injuries from motor vehicle accidents range from relatively minor, to severe, to fatal. But anyone injured in an accident should consult a lawyer as a first step, to ensure their rights and interests are completely attended to.
Common motor vehicle injuries include:

But those injuries will be apparent on an x-ray and via examination by a medical professional. Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents, and it can cause headaches and vision problems in addition to severe or even debilitating neck and back pain.
Other injuries, such as lacerations and burns, may require not only immediate medical attention, but also plastic surgery for the resultant scarring when they heal.
If you were injured in a car, motorcycle, ride-share, bus, boat, RV, or any other type of motor vehicle accident, get the process started by contacting a lawyer as soon as possible.
Depending on your situation, a lawyer will:
But most importantly, a lawyer and their team will watch out for you and your interests. They will navigate the sometimes-tricky conversations and negotiations with insurance companies. Insurance companies have been known to offer what seems like a lot of money to claimants not represented by a lawyer, because their goal is to cut their losses. But your lawyer’s goal will be to make sure you get all the compensation you deserve.
