Manassas Car Accident Attorney
Aggressive Personal Injury Lawyers Defending Your Rights After a Car Accident
Car accidents and truck accidents happen every day due to bad decisions motorists make to drive despite distraction from texting or eating, fatigue, or impairment. In addition, the emergence of driverless cars adds a new danger to the roads. No matter how good of a driver you are, you do not have control over the actions of other drivers on Virginia's roadways. Getting involved in a motor vehicle accident can lead to injuries, stacking medical bills and lost wages from not being able to work.
At Tobias Iszard, we believe you should be compensated for these losses if you are involved in a car wreck that is someone else’s fault. We are committed to helping you pursue fair compensation. Our attorneys have experience dealing with these cases and know how to guide you through the claims process and hold other parties accountable. If necessary, our team of personal injury attorneys are experienced and prepared to take your case to court.
When To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer
It’s in your best interest to contact a lawyer after a car accident as soon as possible. There are a few reasons for this, the first being the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is a law which is implemented on a state level which allocates a specific amount of time for how long personal injury cases can be filed. After the allotted amount of time has passed, injury victims will be unable to file a claim.
According to the Virginia Code section 8.01-243(A) the state of Virginia has a two-year statute of limitations law. This means you have two years from the date of your accident to file your claim in order to successfully file and pursue compensation. There are some exceptions to this law where the filing time may change, including:
- If the injury victim is a minor at the time of the accident
- The alleged negligent party intentionally tried to obstruct the lawsuit
Beyond the statute of limitations, which applies to all personal injury cases, car accident injuries are usually different than other injuries covered by personal injury law in that they are often soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries are injuries that affect the tendons, ligaments and muscles in the body. A good example of a soft tissue injury that is common in car accident cases is whiplash. Like whiplash, these types of injuries typically progressively get worse over a period of a few days or weeks after the injury occurred.
Many injury victims are not aware of this which can lead some to sign a compensation agreement with an insurance company before talking to an attorney only to discover later that their injuries are worse than they initially thought but are not able to recover any additional compensation to cover their additional medical costs.
