In a Virginia traffic accident, you should call the police as soon as possible, particularly if you believe someone else is at fault in the crash. Your Front Royal traffic accident lawyer will need a police report to help determine negligence. 

In the state of Virginia, you should call the police if there are injuries involved or if the property damage exceeds $1,000. The police will be able to take a report regarding your Virginia traffic accident and that report could prove crucial later on for your Virginia traffic accident lawyer if you need to recover damages from your accident. 

After the police have been contacted, there are things you should remember to do at a car accident scene: 

  • assess Injuries— make sure you’re okay, and check on the condition of others if possible;
  • gather Information— if you’re okay, try to write down everything you can;
  • be conscious of what you say— talk to the police and keep statements to other victims to a minimum;
  • don’t make an agreement at the scene— it’s not a good idea to make a deal with other parties at the scene, nor is it a good idea to accept a settlement at the scene from an insurance adjuster; and
  • take photos— most cell phones have cameras, and photos you take may be vital to a Virginia traffic accident lawyer.


A Front Royal traffic accident can be traumatic, and it’s important to keep your head.

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
