Alexandria is known for its beauty, culture and historic charm. The city has garnered sterling reviews as a tourist destination, including Old Town, a center for many boutiques, award-winning restaurants and a thriving arts scene. But with Washington, D.C. just across the Potomac River, Alexandria is also a bustling commuter hub, with consequent heavy traffic that often leads to accidents. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to motor vehicle crash in Alexandria, the skilled attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban can help you win the compensation you deserve.
At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, our experienced lawyers advocate for drivers, passengers, bikers and pedestrians who have been injured in car accidents through no fault of their own. In 2017, Alexandria City was the site of 1,441 motor vehicle crashes resulting in 576 injuries and four fatalities. Causes of these accidents and the resulting injuries included:
We successfully handle lawsuits for damages stemming from single-car and multiple-car crashes, head-on and rear-end collisions and accidents involving tractor trailers, commercial vehicles and motorcycles. These include cases of serious or catastrophic injuries as well as wrongful death suits on behalf of family members of victims of fatal accidents.
If you or a member of your family is hurt in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to recover medical costs, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and other out-of-pocket expenses. You may also be entitled to damages for pain and suffering. Unlike no-fault states where each driver must first claim compensation from his or her own insurance company, Virginia allows an injured party to seek recovery directly from the party alleged to have been at fault.
However, Virginia applies a strict contributory negligence rule, which means that even if the other driver was 99 percent at fault, your one percent contribution to the accident can result in you receiving no compensation. You need a fierce legal advocate with experience fighting insurance companies and a thorough understanding of Virginia insurance laws to fight back against allegations that you were partially at fault. We will diligently investigate your case, using police reports, witness statements and accident-site visits, and build the strongest case possible for proving that other parties were solely to blame.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car wreck in Alexandria, Virginia, never agree to a settlement with an insurance company without qualified legal counsel. Let one of our skilled and determined trial lawyers fight for your rightful compensation.
