With busy roads such as I-495 and I-95, I-66, and the Fairfax and Prince William County Parkways, accidents occur every day in Northern Virginia. Sometimes, the damage is merely to personal property and the automobiles; sometimes, an accident is more serious and severe medical injury occurs, requiring extensive medical costs and lengthy rehabilitation. The personal injury lawyers at Hartsoe & Morgan understand that while cleaning up after an accident may take an hour, an injured individual may endure the financial and physical ramifications of the accident for years to come. Our lawyers take a variety of approaches, depending on the scenario presented. Initially, we gather information about the accident itself, collect the client’s medical records, obtain the accident report and interview witnesses. If the negligent party is charged with a traffic offense, we attend the traffic hearing, all in an effort to provide the best advice and overview of the process and the potential outcomes of a personal injury lawsuit. Upon completion of the investigation, H&M’s attorneys can write a detailed letter to the negligent actor and potential defendant, explaining the grounds for liability and requesting a reasonable demand amount based on our investigation and the needs of the client. Our experience in courtrooms throughout Northern Virginia allows us to provide realistic demands, in line with recent jury awards and settlements in similar cases. We are realistic with our approach and advice to clients as well as the opposing parties. By using our experience with both negotiation and trial, we have achieved positive results for our clients.
