When you are injured in due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. However, the surrounding jurisdictions have very strict standards for personal injury claims. The other party must be entirely at fault. If you contributed in any way to causing your accident, you cannot recover damages. Insurance companies will try to tailor your statements to demonstrate that you contributed to the accident. It is vital that you contact an attorney before you make any statements. Paragon Law Firm attorneys have the necessary experience and skill to prove that you were not responsible for your accident and deserve to be compensated.

Auto accidents
Paragon Law Firm helps you recover damages for auto accident injuries. If you were not at fault for your car accident, the firm works to help you receive damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

No case is too small. Injuries that may seem minor can develop into serious conditions. Paragon Law Firm conducts a full medical review of your injuries and seeks an appropriate settlement or verdict.

Slip and Fall

You may be able to file suit if you slipped and fell on someone else’s property. In Virginia, your lawyer must prove that the property owner:

  • Knew or should have known about the hazardous condition
  • Could have foreseen that that condition might cause injury to a visitor

You only have a valid claim if you did not contribute to causing your slip and fall. Paragon Law Firm helps show that you could not have reasonably avoided the dangerous condition that caused your injury.

[toggle title=”Frequently asked questions:
“]Should I contact the police?
Many times victims decide not to contact the police. This is not advisable. The lack of a police report weakens your position if the other party denies liability.

When should I seek assistance from an attorney?
Your immediate concern should be seeking medical attention.  Once you have been checked by a medical professional, then you should contact an attorney. We will conduct the initial consultation either on the phone or at our office. There is no charge for an initial consultation in a personal injury matter.

I don’t have any pain.
Many times one does not experience pain from an accident until a couple days after the trauma. If there was impact, the odds are you will need medical attention. You should seek assistance from a medical provider to better understand you condition.

I cannot afford medical treatment
There are many medical providers that treat patients on a lien basis or an authorization and assignment. Essentially this means that you authorize the attorney to pay the medical provider directly once a settlement/verdict is reached. Every medical provider’s method and legal document is different. Such documents vary and must be reviewed by your attorney before you sign them.

I cannot afford an attorney
Paragon Law Firm takes most personal injury cases on a contingency basis. This means that if there is no recovery, then there is no attorney fee. The attorney fee is contingent on recovery. Once a recovery is achieved, then the attorney earns an agreed upon percentage of the total recovery. This should not be confused with costs; ethically the attorney cannot make the costs contingent on the outcome. Paragon Law Firm strives to minimize costs in your time of pain.

Can I make a settlement without an attorney?
The insurance companies will be more than happy to settle with you personally, that is because the settlement amount will be in their favor.[/toggle]
