Richlands, VA Car Accident Lawyer
Fighting for the Compensation of Clients throughout Southwest Virginia
Motor vehicles are inherently dangerous. When you operate a car on the road, you are expected to give your full attention to driving. Unfortunately, distracted driving accounts for more than 25 percent of traffic fatalities in Virginia, and that number seems to only go up. If you were injured because another driver failed to pay attention to the road, the Richlands car accident lawyer at T Shea Cook PC can help. With decades of effective legal experience and a reputation for aggressive representation, our team can help you ensure you obtain the best possible outcome for your unique situation.
Holding Insurance Companies Responsible
While it may have been a bad driver that caused your accident, it will be the insurance company you’ll have to contend with in order to secure compensation for your losses. Unfortunately, many people deal with insurers poorly, giving up crucial details that are later used against them in negotiating a smaller settlement. At T Shea Cook PC, we know what it takes to win cases, and our personal injury lawyer can help you avoid losing the money you need to recover.
Following an accident, you should always:
- Take photos of the accident if possible: When safe to do so, document what happened in the accident to prove the fault of the other driver
- Gather witness statements: Others who saw what happened can often provide accounts that will strengthen your case for compensation
- Obtain police reports: Law enforcement can help to make a clear and unmistakable account of the events involved in your injury
- Seek medical attention right away: Immediately following your accident, visit a doctor of your choosing to have your injuries documented so that they can be covered by the insurer
