Our Virginia Injury Law Firm Can Answer Your Questions

Being involved in an auto accident or other traumatic event causing serious injury can leave a person and their family in a state of shock.  You undoubtedly have many questions and concerns and are faced with conflicted opinions on how to proceed and whom to trust.

The lawyers at our Virginia injury law firm are dedicated to informing you of your rights and helping you receive the just compensation you deserve.  MartinWren P.C.’s injury lawyers welcome the opportunity to meet or speak with you to answer any questions you may have and help alleviate the fear and worry you may be experiencing.

Do I need to hire a personal injury attorney?

Accident victims are not required to hire a personal injury attorney.  However, the benefits of having an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney representing your claim are immeasurable.  Accident victims are left facing a new and unfamiliar world as they try to navigate the mountains of medical expenses, deal with the accident’s effects on their personal and professional life, all while dealing with painful injuries.

A skilled and experienced personal injury attorney can investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine liability and the extent of your injuries.  Most insurance companies will work tirelessly to limit the amount they have to pay out on claims or to keep from paying out the claim altogether.   Our Virginia injury law firm can aggressively represent you with the insurance companies and in the courtroom and provide personal attention and guidance to you and your family during this difficult and confusing time.

How much do I have to pay a personal injury attorney to represent me?

Speaking to the Virginia injury lawyers at MartinWren, P.C. costs you nothing.  We do not charge any consultation fee and would gladly come visit you in the hospital or at your home if that is most convenient.  You are welcome to come to our offices, or we can also schedule a meeting in the evenings or weekends.  There is no cost associated with any of these meetings or visits, so you should not hesitate to contact MartinWren, P.C. if you or your loved one has been injured.

As is custom in most personal injury cases, MartinWren, P.C. accepts personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis.  This simply means that any attorney fee is contingent on the outcome.  Our attorneys are paid from a percentage of the money you receive in a judgment or verdict after trial or through settlement before trial.  Until then, you do not owe anything and will not be required to pay anything out of pocket.

What kind of personal injury cases does MartinWren, P.C. handle?

The Charlottesville personal injury lawyers at MartinWren, P.C. handle a wide variety of personal injury claims.  We have experience representing victims of many types of personal injury cases including:  auto accidents, motorcycle collisions, 18-wheeler collisions, dangerous and defective products, safety and security of premises, dog bites, among many others.  Additionally, our attorneys have represented families in wrongful death cases who have lost loved ones in a fatal accident of different kinds.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

The compensation, settlement, award, or verdict you receive in a personal injury case will vary based on many different circumstances.  Most notable, the worth of a personal injury claim will be dependent on the degree of the injury and other damages suffered by the victim.  This includes economic losses such as medical bills, ambulance bills, rehabilitation services, surgeries, nursing care, medical equipment, loss of income, loss of future income, and predicted future financial losses that are the result of the injuries sustained.  Non-economic losses are also considered which are pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and other effects of the injury.
