|AUTO ACCIDENT INJURIES|
Statistics show that Virginia drivers should be deeply concerned for their safety. According to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, car accident fatalities in Virginia reached a sixteen year high in 2006, with over 1000 drivers and passengers losing their lives on Virginia roads and highways.
More than half of vehicle accident injuries were caused by preventable mistakes and errors, with inattention, following too closely, failing to yield, and speeding topping the list of car accident causes.
With the increased power and speed of newer vehicles, the severity of injuries resulting from road and highway accidents makes it the number one cause of brain injury and spinal cord injury today.
Breit, Drescher, Imprevento & Walker, PC, is a Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads Virginia-based personal injury law firm with a proven record of securing the best possible financial recovery for the clients we represent. As leaders in the field of plaintiff representation in Virginia, our attorneys have won several of the largest verdicts in Virginia history for our personal injury clients. Many of our larger verdicts and settlements have been in accident cases involving cars, trucks, vans and commercial vehicles, where juries found that negligence and carelessness by another driver was the direct cause of our clients’ injuries.
A severe injury is a costly and life changing event, and it is difficult enough to get through without having to worry about going bankrupt. Unfortunately, many injury victims are put into that position due to the denial of claims by their insurance companies. If a claim isn't denied, it is almost standard operating procedure for the insurers to offer settlements that are only a fraction of the initial claim.
In case after case, insurance companies have learned that facing Breit, Drescher, Imprevento & Walker, PC in a court of law is a costly and time consuming effort, and often a losing one. Our prominent reputation in Virginia as successful trial attorneys ensures that insurance companies negotiate with our clients in good faith, always offering a fair and even handed personal injury settlement to our clients. If they don’t, we’ll never hesitate to tell them, “We’ll see you in court.”
Nowhere is this type of confident legal representation more essential than in car accident cases that result in serious injuries such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, severe burns and dismemberment. We are never surprised to hear new clients describe the treatment they’ve received from their insurance companies, which often resort to threats, coercion, deceit and delay in their efforts to obtain the lowest settlements possible. We know how to forcefully respond to such treatment through the legal system. We also understand our client’s medical and financial needs. In addition to proving negligence resulted in an injury, our experts and specialists will develop a comprehensive life care plan for severe injuries, to ensure that our clients obtain the treatment they need and receive every penny of compensation they deserve.
