Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Get You the Results You Deserve

If you have been injured in an accident and are contemplating filing a personal injury lawsuit, you might be wondering if you need a lawyer who works primarily on personal injury cases. While many lawyers are highly skilled and experienced in multiple types of law, there are advantages to hiring a personal injury lawyer to assist you with a personal injury case. If you want to give your case the best chance of success with the potential for the highest compensation, selecting a lawyer with dedicated personal injury case experience is the smart choice. Our personal injury lawyers have the dedication to get you the results you deserve.

Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

You may be overwhelmed by the dozens of choices there are in lawyers when you start looking for legal help. This is partly because there are so many different types of law. Many lawyers choose to focus on one to a few specific areas of practice so they can gain a deep bench of dedicated experience in those areas. While all licensed lawyers have to pass their state bar, all lawyers are not the same. Relevant experience is important.

If you are seeking a personal injury lawyer, you want to find someone who is familiar with the local court system. Often, they’ll have experience working with various judges and in multiple jurisdictions. They may even know typically involved parties like prosecutors and defense attorneys. When you hire an experienced Virginia personal injury lawyer, you may be gaining access to advantages that can significantly impact the outcome of your case.

Knowledge and Guidance

An experienced personal injury lawyer brings a wealth of knowledge about related aspects of state law, including understanding negligence in Virginia. They understand the laws and know how to interpret them and apply them to your case. They will work to ensure that your rights are protected and your case is presented optimally.

Handling of Paperwork and Deadlines

Legal cases involve extensive documentation and strict deadlines. An experienced personal injury lawyer will know what forms need to be filed, how to complete them correctly and completely so that your case isn’t jeopardized, and when to submit them. 

Skilled Negotiations

After an accident, insurance companies may pressure you to accept a settlement amount quickly. This may not reflect all the compensation you could be entitled to receive under Virginia law. An experienced personal injury lawyer knows how to deal with insurance representatives, can evaluate and discuss offers with you based on their experience, and negotiate to maximize your compensation.

Relevant Personal Injury Experience

  • Damages. A lawyer with specific experience in personal injury cases can accurately gauge the value of your case and your claims. They will consider factors like your medical expenses, lost wages from missed work for medical appointments or recovery, pain and suffering, and future rehabilitation costs, including physical therapy, and even costs to modify your home to accommodate disabilities 
  • Resources. Experienced personal injury lawyers typically have a large network of resources, including medical experts, professional investigators, and accident reconstruction specialists. These resources are crucial for gathering evidence, building a strong case, and providing expert testimony when needed.

Trial Experience

While many cases settle out of court before a trial, your personal injury lawyer will be prepared to represent your interests and fight for the compensation you deserve in court. 

Results in a Personal Injury Case

No results are guaranteed, and every case is different. However, experienced personal injury lawyers typically achieve more favorable results than individuals who represent themselves. Your lawyer will be able to give you examples of amounts they have secured for people with similar cases in the past.

Peace of Mind

Hiring a personal injury lawyer can provide peace of mind that you are doing everything you can to maximize the compensation you deserve after your accident. Knowing that a professional is handling your case allows you to focus on your recovery without the stress of managing legal details.

Dealing with the consequences of an accident can be overwhelming, but hiring an experienced Virginia personal injury lawyer offers numerous benefits that could make a significant difference in your case. From legal guidance and skilled negotiations to access to resources and potentially higher compensation, an experienced lawyer is a valuable ally.

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
