Personal Injury

Significant Trial Experience

Whenever an individual has been injured in an accident — whether in an automobile, a store or on the property of a commercial establishment — the injuries sustained can be painful, serious, and long lasting. Moreover, in addition to the medical expenses and costs, loss of work and income also occurs as a result of these accidents. It is at such times that it is important to have an experienced trial attorney on your side.

Since 1972, I have handled a wide variety of personal injury cases resulting from motor vehicle accidents, unsafe premises, defective products and more. I stand ready to aid and assist you and your family with any claim that you might have. From my office in Harrisonburg, I advocate on your behalf in state, federal or appellate courts throughout Virginia.

Protecting Your Right to Recovery

When their liability is obvious, insurance companies are often all too quick to offer you a settlement. However, the real question to be considered is whether or not the settlement which they are offering you is in fact to your benefit.

In most instances the true extent of an individual's injuries cannot be accurately determined until a period of time has elapsed after the rehabilitation period has commenced. Attempting or agreeing to settle on your own before you might know the full extent of your medical injuries, costs or permanent problems can be devastating to you financially.

It is important that you receive the full value for all of the injuries you have had to endure, whether they are temporary or permanent, as well as for your medical expenses, lost wages and for your pain and suffering. As your lawyer, I use my significant trial experience to protect your right to receive financial recovery after an accident caused by the negligence of another.
