- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium

In some cases, you also may be entitled to punitive damages, which are designed to punish the negligent party and deter others from engaging in similar behavior.

What should I do if I'm involved in an accident?
We strongly urge you to take the following steps after an accident:
- Seek immediate medical attention - Don't try to diagnose yourself. Make sure you have an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), doctor or another medical professional examine you and decide if you have a serious injury.
- Call the police - In most cases, it's almost always a good idea to have a police officer respond to your accident and investigate exactly what happened.
- Talk to witnesses - Statements from witnesses help build strong cases. Talk to any possible witnesses and get their full names, addresses and phone numbers.
- Take photographs - Make sure you take photos of any possible contributing factors (unsafe sidewalk conditions, poor lighting, inadequate fencing, etc.). Also take photos of your injuries if possible.
- Write down details - Every piece of evidence matters. Write down the following information:
- Exact time of accident
- Exact location of accident
- Weather conditions
- Lighting conditions
- Contact us - We can help guide you every step of the way through your accident investigation. We have years of experience, and we're eager to help you.

Should I accept an offer from an insurance company?
It's best to discuss any offer you receive with an experienced personal injury lawyer before making your decision. In most cases, most insurance companies make low-ball offers to injury victims soon after an accident - and before the true cost of a person's injuries are fully known. Don't let insurance companies intimidate you and rush you into reaching a settlement. Contact us. We can review the insurance company's offer with you and help you decide if you should accept it.

Can I negotiate for more money from an insurance company?
Yes. Many people don't realize they can ask for more money after an accident. They don't simply have to accept whatever an insurance company offers. Even if an insurance company insists it cannot offer more money, don't be so sure. We can work with you and negotiate directly with the insurance company on your behalf.
<Return to Top>
Should I file a lawsuit?
Maybe. Lawsuits can be extremely complicated. That's why it's important to contact us. We can carefully review all the legal options available to you. Sometimes, filing a lawsuit is the best solution to your legal problems, especially if the insurance company refuses to offer more money for your accident.

Why should I hire Roanoke law firm Davis, Davis, Davis & Davis, PC?
An accident involving personal injury might seem straightforward at first. The other party might have admitted wrongdoing, and you might have an offer from the insurance company to settle. While it might be tempting to take the money and move on, you might be making a mistake by dealing with the insurance company on your own.
It's important to remember that your true cost of your accident goes beyond simply your medical bills. You need to consider lost income, lost future earnings, physical therapy, pain and suffering and other legitimate expenses. The insurance adjuster knows that most accident victims simply don't have the experience to know what their case is worth. That's why insurance companies might make a quick offer to settle. They prefer working with people who are not represented by experienced lawyers. That's when the insurance companies have the upper hand.
