Legal Advocacy You Can Rely On After A Motor Vehicle Accident

While no one wants to get hurt in a car accident, each of us only has control over how we behave behind the wheel. Even if you always drive defensively and in accordance with traffic laws, you could be seriously injured (or worse) by the careless and negligent actions of another driver.

While you may not be able to prevent an accident, you do have the right to seek justice and compensation from the driver who caused your injuries. To give yourself the best chance of legal success, it’s important to hire the right attorney. In Bedford and surrounding areas of Virginia, the choice for representation is an easy one: Pack Law Group.

Ready To Fight For Victims Of Any Type Of Car Accident

Our team of experienced attorneys and dedicated staff can help you seek compensation after any car accident scenario, including those caused by:

  • Speeding and aggressive driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Drowsy/fatigued driving
  • Hit-and-run drivers
  • Failure to respond to inclement weather, heavy traffic or road conditions

Each case is unique and needs to be investigated carefully and thoroughly. We set to work on your behalf immediately after being hired, collecting evidence and calculating the financial and personal losses you have suffered as a result of the crash.

Why Skilled Personal Injury Representation Is Especially Important In Virginia

In most states, you are entitled to compensation from the at-fault driver even if you were partially responsible for the accident. These states recognize a legal principle called comparative negligence.

Virginia, by contrast, uses the “pure contributory negligence” principle. Under this doctrine, you can be denied compensation if you contributed to the accident in any way. It doesn’t matter if the other driver was 99% at fault for the crash. If the court finds you even 1% percent liable, you can be barred from claiming compensation.

Insurance companies and personal injury defendants frequently try to use this rigid law to their advantage. That’s why you need an especially skilled and aggressive lawyer when pursuing a car accident claim. Our attorneys work tirelessly to build the strongest possible case on your behalf, which includes being ready to counter any allegations that you were also at fault. Our goal is to maximize your compensation and keep the blame squarely where it belongs: on the at-fault driver.
