Personal Injury Attorney DC
Accidents happen, and the notoriously bad traffic of Washington, DC doesn’t just cause gridlock, it also leads to tens of thousands of accidents, thousands of injuries, and dozens of deaths every year. In many of these cases, everything goes smoothly: the drivers involved all have insurance, it’s clear who’s responsible for the accident, and the insurance companies pay out what each person needs for injuries and property damage. But sometimes things don’t go the way you’d like, and at that point it helps to have a personal injury attorney in DC who can help you through the process.
Take Advantage Of Professional Help
There are any number of ways an auto accident can become complicated. Maybe the driver of the other car isn’t the person who holds the insurance policy for the car. Maybe both drivers are partly at fault but only one was injured. Maybe one driver doesn’t have the right insurance. Maybe one of the injuries is whiplash or a traumatic brain injury, and it’s not obvious how bad it is until a week after the collision.
Insurance companies can also be very reluctant to pay a claim, especially if it’s for a large amount. Insurance is a for-profit business, after all, and the more claims they reject the bigger their profit becomes. If they can make a case that your injuries aren’t as bad as you say or that not all the damage to your car came from the accident, they’ll do it. They have professionals that investigate auto accident claims every day, and so it helps to have a professional defending your claim.
At Wingfield, Ginsburg and Lipp, P.C, we offer the services of a personal injury attorney to DC, Maryland, and Virginia residents. We help our clients in many ways: we explain what evidence you’ll need to support your case, we can negotiate with the claims adjuster on your behalf, and if needed we can take your case to court. But for most of our clients that’s not necessary, since insurance companies are also much more willing to negotiate when they know you’ve hired a personal injury lawyer.
Get Fair Compensation For Any Personal Injury
You can call on the office of Wingfield, Ginsburg and Lipp, P.C for more than just traffic accidents. Our practice areas include every aspect of personal injury law, including:
- Premise liability, or the so-called “slip and fall” laws. This applies when you’re injured because someone didn’t keep their property safe or didn’t offer enough warnings about dangerous areas.
- Product defects. The things you buy shouldn’t be dangerous, or at least not more dangerous than you expect. If a defective product injures you or damages your property, we can help you get compensation.
- Dog bites. This includes any kind of injury caused by an animal humans are responsible for.
- Malicious injuries. Criminal cases see that justice is served, but victims get compensation through personal injury lawsuits.
- Wrongful death. If the worst should happen, we make sure the survivors get the compensation they deserve.
No matter what the situation is, if you need a personal injury lawyer in DC or the surrounding counties, chances are we can help.
We Aren’t Paid Unless You Are
It’s standard practice for a personal injury lawyer in DC and the rest of the country to only take a percentage of the settlement as payment. This means that if you get paid more, we get paid more, and if you lose your court case, we get nothing at all.
So even though insurance companies make millions of dollars every year, you don’t have to worry about them trying to out-spend you at court. Personal injury law is one of the ways individuals can make sure big corporations pay for their actions or their negligence, and the office of Wingfield, Ginsburg and Lipp, P.C is proud to play its part.
An auto accident can be a traumatic and trying time, and while many people get through them without any real trouble, sometimes life can get messy and insurance companies can become reluctant.
