      What To Do After a Personal Injury Accident in Hopewell, Virginia 

      Whether you were injured walking across the street in downtown Hopewell or you slipped and fell in a store near City Point, there are a few things you can do to protect your health, rights, and ability to seek damages in the future.

      They include but aren’t limited to:

      1. Seek Immediate Medical Attention – Even if you’re not sure if you’ve been injured, it’s in your best interest to get medical attention as soon as possible. Otherwise, it can be difficult to prove that the accident is what caused your injuries. 
      2. Collect Evidence – Be sure to take pictures/videos of the accident scene, your injuries, damages, and conditions leading to the accident. 
      3. Alert The Police or Relevant Authorities – Ensure your accident is documented by the right people. That means, if you’ve been in a traffic accident, call the police. If you’ve been injured at a store, file a report with the owner/manager. 
      4. Document Everything – Keep meticulous notes. That includes receipts for medical bills, doctors notes, injury diary, pictures of your recovery, and more. 
      5. Contact a Personal Injury Attorney – An experienced lawyer understands how to assess the validity of your claims, build a solid case, negotiate with insurers, and represent you in court, when necessary.

      Additionally, there are a few things you’ll want to avoid after your accident. For example, avoid saying too much about your case to insurance companies, friends, family, etc.

      This includes limiting your social media activity. Further, don’t ignore your doctor’s orders after an accident – Even the slightest deviation could put your claim at risk. 

      Every personal injury case is different, and may require different steps in the aftermath of an accident injury in Hopewell. The good news is, you don’t have to figure it out alone. Our personal injury lawyers are here for you every step of the way.

          What is the amount of a verdict or settlement based on?

          In Virginia, the jury considers the following factors when deciding the amount of a verdict:

          (1) Any bodily injuries sustained and their effect on health according to their degree and probable duration;

          How much is our Attorney’s Fee?

          Nothing until we win your case.

          We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we don’t get paid unless you get paid.

          If we resolve your case before filing a lawsuit, we charge a fee of up to 33.33% of the recovery. After a lawsuit is filed, we may charge a fee of up to 40% of the recovery.
