No matter how careful we are, it is unlikely every one of us will make it through life without ever being involved in an accident. Fortunately, if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident — or if a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident that was the other party’s fault — you may be entitled to compensation. The Leesburg personal injury attorneys at Simms Showers LLP can help.

With a growing population, Northern Virginia has thousands of car accidents each year. Approximately 50 percent of accidents result in an injury to one or more people. Many times, innocent individuals are severely injured and suffer serious or even permanent injuries.
Insurance companies as a general rule will deny, delay and refuse to pay. This is true in both small and serious personal injury cases. Furthermore, insurance companies will usually low ball an offer they make to an injured party who is representing themselves. In our experience, the offer and stakes take an immediate uptick when we get involved.
Simms Showers LLP has spent years protecting the rights of victims. Our Leesburg personal injury attorneys’ goal in every accident case we take is to aggressively secure adequate and realistic compensation for the insured.
Leesburg & Loudoun County Wrongful Death Attorneys
Simms Showers LLP has a long track record of representing clients in wrongful death suits. We have litigated death cases both as prosecutors bringing drunk driving manslaughter defendants to justice and representing victims whose loved ones were tragically killed because of another’s negligence. Although we understand that no amount of compensation can replace the loss of a loved one, we work diligently to maximize your award. We guide each family through this difficult process and provide experience and knowledge in the litigation or settlement of the case.
Virginia law allows for the family of the victim to be compensated for the following:
- Emotional loss
- Medical expenses occasioned by the injury resulting in death
- Reasonable funeral expenses
- Lost income to dependents of the victim
- Punitive damages if the negligence that caused the death was willful and wanton
- The existence of a duty owed to you by the person who caused your injury
- The other person failed to carry out the duty that they owed you
- You suffered damages
- The other person’s failure caused you to have the injury
Your reaction counts
When an accident occurs, time is of the essence. To determine the negligence of those involved, evidence must be preserved and an investigation must take place. Contacting a qualified Virginia personal injury attorney immediately is the best way to help ensure success in your injury case.
Personal injury law in Virginia
In Virginia, a successful personal injury case often hinges on your ability to prove that the person who caused your injury acted negligently. Under Virginia’s contributory negligence law, if you were careless and your carelessness substantially contributed to your injury, you may not be eligible for compensation.
