Aggressive litigation of tough accident cases
Two cases serve as examples of how we handle auto accident cases:
In this first case, our plaintiff was driving a pickup on her way to work. When she stopped at an intersection, she was struck from the rear by the defendant, who was driving in the course of his employment. Though there was approximately $800 worth of damage to the plaintiff's truck, she was able to drive from the scene. Over the ensuing months, our client became unable to perform her job and had to resign. She was diagnosed with a closed head injury approximately seven months after the accident had occurred.
Even though our plaintiff left the accident scene without seeking medical treatment and did not follow up promptly with her doctor, we were still able to make a compelling case for the accident being the cause of her head injury. We accomplished this by thoroughly investigating her health history and the nature of her injury. The case settled prior to trial for a substantial amount.
In the second case, the plaintiff was driving home on the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel when she slowed for traffic and was rear-ended by one vehicle, then two others in a chain reaction. The plaintiff sustained soft-tissue injuries and received extensive medical treatment. This case settled for a substantial amount from the three defendant drivers.
Dependable representation for motorcycle accidents
Because motorcyclists and their passengers are virtually unprotected, their injuries are usually more severe than those injured in car accidents. Trauma to the head, neck and spine can easily result in brain damage and paralysis. Motorcycle accidents, like trucking accidents, may require expert reconstruction to determine the cause. Personal injury lawyer Timothy H. Hankins is passionate about making sure you receive the compensation you need to cope with your lasting injuries. We work hard to protect your rights and your future
