      When To Call a Personal Injury Lawyer in Suffolk, VA

      After you’ve suffered an injury in an accident, you may wonder if hiring a personal injury claims lawyer is worth it. Here’s the truth: seeking legal guidance (especially, early in the process) can be highly beneficial. 

      Generally, you should consider calling a personal injury lawyer under the following circumstances: 

      You Have Significant Injuries

      If your injuries cause hospitalization, require ongoing treatment, or results in missed time from work – you need an attorney. Your lawyer will work to ensure you’re fully compensated for the short and long term impacts of your injury. 

      Fault is Disputed

      In many cases, the insurance company will blame you for the accident. Further, if multiple people are involved, it can be challenging to determine who’s legally responsible. When liability isn’t clear, your personal injury lawyer can step in to protect your rights. 

      You Have a Complex Case

      If someone else’s negligence resulted in complex injuries like Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), permanent disfigurement, and paralysis – It’s typically in the best interest of personal injury victims to work with a proven accident attorney. 

      Pressure to Accept Lowball Offer

      Suppose the insurance company immediately admits fault, and makes an offer – But, their offer is very low and doesn’t truly cover the cost of your injuries.

      In that case, it’s best to work with personal injury attorneys who have the legal expertise to obtain compensation that covers the full extent of your losses.

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