Your child is no longer strapped in with a five-point harness and has not yet earned his driver’s license. It may seem like there is not much to worry about while you, or another adult, are driving your elementary-school, middle-school or early-high-school child around in Virginia. However, this could be a critical time in your child’s driving education.

The Steps You Take Now Can Help Protect Your Child, Now and Later

It may not feel like your child is watching, much less wanting to emulate, what you are doing, but your child is watching you closely. Thus, it is time to put down the phone, slow down, and show your child what it is like to drive safely. As your child gets closer to driving age, you should start talking about safe driving rules and letting your child get the practice that he needs behind the wheel. 

Call a Fauquier County Car Accident Lawyer if Your Child is Hurt

Your child may not yet be old enough to drive a car or to bear responsibility when an accident occurs. However, your child could suffer a significant injury in a car accident, and it is important for you to know what you can do to protect your child after a crash. Specifically, it is important to know that your child may be able to recover damages for his accident injuries.

For more information about those injuries and possible recovery, please contact a Fauquier County car accident attorney today at 540-341-007 or 888-907-2631.

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
