It can be difficult when the roles are reversed. Your parent always took care of you, and now it is clear that you will need to take care of your parent. If your parent was hurt by another driver, then it is important to know what you can do to protect your parent during her recovery.

Get Help

It may be difficult for your parent to rely on you. Your mother or father may not want to be a burden to you. However, it is important to see that your parent gets the help she needs. This includes medical care and legal assistance. Once your parent is seen in the emergency room or by her primary care doctor, it is important to make sure that your parent is following up with the medical recommendations.

Additionally, it is important to encourage your parent to contact a Fauquier County car accident lawyer to learn more about her rights. Even if your parent was no longer earning an income, she may benefit from filing a lawsuit or negotiating a settlement to compensate her for:

  • Past and future medical expenses and rehabilitation costs.
  • Out-of-pocket costs, such as travel expenses and house cleaning, that were not required prior to the accident.
  • Pain.
  • Suffering.
  • Other damages.

Your parent has nothing to lose by calling an experienced Fauquier County car accident attorney today at 540-341-007 or 888-907-2631 for a free consultation about her legal rights and possible recovery.

Working with Andrew and his team has been--without exception--one of the most pleasant, productive, and professional experiences of my adult life. I was seriously injured in an accident in July, 2018, in Virginia. I was driving a company vehicle that was registered in Maryland, for a company that was based in Wisconsin. And I live in New Jersey, where my personal vehicles are insured. The several jurisdictions involved presented a very unique case that demanded an experienced and nuanced strategy. I found Andrew Thomas (of Dulaney, Lauer, & Thomas) through some online research. And it is noteworthy that Andrew has worked the other side of the aisle--he used to work with insurance companies. Andrew took on my case with the assurance that he would work it with no less energy than he does each of his cases. At each turn, and with each question I had, Andrew and Paralegal Misty kept me informed, returned my calls, provided detailed explanations, and kept me feeling like I was in the loop and there was an eventual end to our journey. Nearly five years after the accident, we settled out of court for a significant sum in recognition of my personal injuries. The settlement was much more than I had expected. And without Andrew & Misty, I am sure the award would have been much less. If you are looking for professionalism, knowledge, dedication, answerability, responsiveness, integrity, and human-level communication from a personal injury attorney--look no further. You have found him. Thank you, Andrew and Misty. Gary Daley
