Roanoke Passenger Injury Lawyer
The accident wasn't your fault. We'll make sure you don't have to pay.
If you've been injured as a passenger in auto accident, it may seem as though your life has turned upside down. In a flash, you're left to deal with a lengthy recovery process - when you didn't do anything wrong.
Medical bills, lost wages and other expenses pile up, yet it may seem like you can't take legal action without threatening your relationship with the driver. That's why you need an experienced and compassionate passenger injury attorney on your side. That's why you need Davis, Davis, Davis & Davis, PC. We represent injured passengers in Roanoke and throughout Virginia.
We have the experience to handle complex injury cases
Under Virginia law, passengers are almost always exempt from liability for accidents. Unless you grabbed the wheel or did something else to directly contribute to the crash, you weren't responsible for what happened. Fault for the accident rests, as it should, on someone who was physically in control of a vehicle.
You might think that means it will be easy to get compensated for your injuries, but the truth is rarely that simple. An insurance company may try to downplay the extent of your injuries and offer a "low-ball" settlement. And if multiple insurance companies are involved, it may be difficult to get the compensation you need.
An experienced attorney from our firm can cut through that confusion and fight for full compensation for your accident. We'll handle the insurance on your behalf so that you can focus on getting better. They aren't on your side. We are.
Approaching difficult cases with compassion and care
It's one thing to take legal action against a stranger driving another vehicle. But what if the driver of the car you were in caused the accident? He or she may be a friend, relative or colleague, and you may not want to get an attorney involved out of respect for your friendship.
The reality is that even if you file a lawsuit, you aren't trying to take your friend's money. You're just asking his or her insurance carrier to provide coverage to pay for your injuries. That's their job, and that's what they've been paid to do.
Once you contact us and retain our firm to handle your case, we'll contact the insurance company directly and handle negotiations on your behalf. In most cases, we can reach a settlement with the insurance without getting the at-fault driver involved at all. We'll do everything in our power to get you the compensation you need without threatening your relationship with the driver.
Remember, the sooner you take legal action, the better your outcome will likely be. If you've been hurt as a passenger, contact us today to schedule a free consultation. Call (866) 434-1581.
