Old Town Alexandria Personal Injury LawyerOld Town Alexandria is a wonderful place to shop and to spend an afternoon, and to live as well. But, because so many people are coming and going, because there are so many cars and so many pedestrians, injuries do happen due to the negligence of another person. If you have been hurt because of another person's negligence or recklessness, then you may be entitled to compensation.

But you have to be careful! Insurance companies are not on your side, and are dedicated to giving you as little money as possible. Contact an experienced Old Town Alexandria personal injury attorney with Blaszkow Legal, and Get Justice with Joe! Our job is to fight to get you everything you are entitled to.

How an Old Town Alexandria Injury Lawyer Can Help You Today

If you have been hurt, then it's important to have someone fighting on your side who knows the law. This is doubly true in Virginia, because Virginia is a contributory negligence jurisdiction. That means that if you are even 1% responsible for the happening of your accident, then you cannot recover. This is a very high bar to any claimant, and is very different than the law practiced in most of the rest of the country.

The attorneys and staff at Blaszkow Legal get to work immediately on developing the evidence that we need to stop the other side from arguing that you were at fault. We will gather camera footage, document the scene, and interview witnesses as soon as you hire us. But we can't get started until you call! The sooner you speak to a lawyer, the better!

The Value of your Old Town Alexandria Personal Injury Case

If you have been injured and due to the negligence or recklessness of another person, business, or entity, then you have a right to file a claim for your compensation. However, the most common question to ask after you've recovered is: what is your case worth? It's legitimate question, and it's not that easy to answer. Always be leery of any lawyer who tells you that your case is worth X, as soon as you walk into their office.

What you can claim are your "damages." Damages is a specific term in the legal industry, also used by insurance adjusters, and it tries to encapsulate all of the ways that the incident and your injuries have impacted your life: financially, economically, and overall.

It is difficult to compute an actual value of your case until you are done with treatment, as one of the main determining factors of your damages, are your total medical expenses.

Some of the elements of your damages include:

  • Medical expenses

  • Future medical expenses

  • Prescription costs

  • Medical supplies

  • Time lost from work

  • Future time lost from work

  • Reduced earning capacity

  • Property damage

  • Diminished value for vehicles

  • Future medical treatment

  • Permanency

  • Scarring

  • Disfigurement

  • Pain and suffering

  • Emotional trauma

This list is not exhaustive, of course. It is important to speak to an experienced lawyer today, to find out exactly what makes up your claim, because every claim is different.

The Leading Causes of Personal Injury Claims in Alexandria, Virginia

While no two cases are alike, we do find that there are common threads in many personal injury cases, depending on the type of case we are discussing:

  • Car Accidents - most car accidents are caused by inattention of the driver, through failing to pay full time and attention to the roadway, following too closely, distracted driving, drunk driving (and high driving/buzzed driving), speeding, etc.

  • Bus Accidents - bus accidents can be caused by a driver's negligence, but also happen because a driver is being driven to speed or take shortcuts, perhaps by a manager or dispatcher. Again, inattention can play a rule, such as when a driver closes the doors without checking to see if they are clear

  • Truck Accidents - truck crashes can be among the most severe, because of the sheer mass of the truck. Many times, the CDL driver is driving too fast, and cannot control the vehicle. Other times, the driver may not even be trained for that truck, and companies are to blame.

  • Pedestrian Accidents - pedestrian strike accidents can happen when drivers do not watch/wait before turning, or try to run red lights. Often, walk signs are timed with the traffic lights - if the cars' light is red, the pedestrians' light may be to walk. Running that red light endangers the crossing pedestrians!
