Questions to Ask Your Attorney

Discuss Your Case with Our Car Accident Lawyers in Virginia

If I have been involved in a car accident, should I call the police?

Even if no one is injured in the car accident, you should call the police. This is especially important if the other party was at fault. The police will write up an accident report, take down driver information and statements, and assess fault. They can speak to the insurance company and file a claim with a car accident attorney much easier on you. If you have been injured, notify the police so the information can be included in the accident report.

What if I am partially at fault for the car accident?

Virginia is one of few states that recognizes contributory negligence. This is a defense usually raised by the insurance company to deny you any compensation whatsoever if it is determined you were partially negligent. In this way, the insurance company can get out of paying victims of accidents. However, even if you were partially at fault, do not admit it to anyone at the time of the accident. The best decision is to speak to one of our Virginia car accident attorneys before making any statements to the insurance companies. Let us speak on your behalf.

Why do I need an attorney for my car accident claim?

If you were injured in your car accident, you may have medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. A car accident attorney in Virginia can make sure you get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are notorious for low-balling victims of accidents and then dragging their feet on paying out claims. We can make sure the insurance company pays in a timely manner. In addition, car accident claims may be complex. The car accident attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC will explain everything to you in a way you understand so that your claim is very clear.

What can I receive compensation for if I was involved in a car accident?

If you were seriously injured in a car accident, you are entitled to recovery for your injuries and may be able to further compensation for things such as:

  • Medical costs
  • Scarring
  • Property damage costs
  • Lost wages
  • Future medical costs
  • Future lost wages
  • Disability
  • Rental car expenses
  • Punitive damages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent injuries
  • Inconvenience

Punitive damages are intended to reprimand the reckless driver. These types of damages are awarded in cases involving willful and wanton conduct and cases where the at-fault driver was operating the vehicle while impaired by drugs or alcohol.
