Personal Injury Attorneys Washington DC
Traffic is notoriously bad near the nation’s capital thanks to its booming population and a planned city design that predates automobiles and highways. People get through this gridlock and get out safely most of the time, but every day sees a few collisions, accidents, and injuries.
For the most part the aftermath of these accidents goes smoothly enough. The drivers involved exchange information, they get the damage appraised by a professional mechanic, and they contact each other’s insurance companies to cover the damages. However, sometimes things get complicated: a serious injury doesn’t completely show itself until several days later, someone doesn’t have insurance coverage, or the insurer is reluctant to pay out a big repair bill. That’s when it’s time to look for personal injury attorneys in Washington, DC.
Get A Professional’s Advice
Insurance companies have several advantages over clients who want to make a claim. For one thing, they have professional investigators and lawyers who understand a lot more about the claims process than their clients. They also know every detail about insurance laws and regulations, so they can delay your claim or make arguments against it that are completely legal even if they would hurt the claimant. That’s why it helps to have a professional on your side, too.

- Product defects, including things like food poisoning, bad designs, and manufacturing errors.
- Malicious injuries, because while criminal cases punish the guilty, personal injury cases compensate the victims.
