Washington DC Personal Injury Lawyer

Washington DC Personal Injury Lawyer

Accidents take place every day.  Often enough they happen because we weren’t enough attention to the state of the sidewalk, the flow of traffic, the person running past, or some other nearby danger.  However, in other cases the accident takes place because someone else wasn’t being careful enough, someone else didn’t take care of their property the way they should have, or someone else sold you a product that didn’t work the way they said it would.

Accidents take place every day.  Often enough they happen because we weren’t enough attention to the state of the sidewalk, the flow of traffic, the person running past, or some other nearby danger.  However, in other cases the accident takes place because someone else wasn’t being careful enough, someone else didn’t take care of their property the way they should have, or someone else sold you a product that didn’t work the way they said it would.

At times like these, the party at fault needs to take responsibility and compensate you for injuries to your person and damages to your property.  Unfortunately, not every person or company is always willing to admit when something is their fault, or the insurance company they pay doesn’t want to give you the full settlement you deserve.  At times like these, you should get a lawyer to represent you.  And if you need a Washington DC personal injury lawyer, you can count on Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp.

We Know The Law

A Washington DC personal injury lawyer can provide you with expert legal advice so you can understand your rights and your responsibilities under the federal and district law.  The lawyers at Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp can also practice law in Maryland and Virginia, so if the incident took place just outside of the district we can still help you and represent you.

The reason why you should get legal help is because the people you’re up against have legal teams of their own.  Insurance adjusters are far more familiar with the laws and regulations than most of their customers, and they often take advantage of this by using technicalities to reduce settlements and dragging things on as long as they legally can so that you’ll take a smaller amount sooner instead of a bigger amount later.  By hiring a lawyer, you’ll have someone who can help you build your case and avoid legal pitfalls so you can get the compensation you deserve.

We Practice In Several Areas

A Washington DC personal injury lawyer can offer legal advice and help in several areas of tort law.  At Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp, our practice includes all of the following areas.

  • Defective product accidents caused by poorly made products or products that don’t do what the advertisements say they do.
  • Traffic accidents caused by reckless driving, negligent and distracted driving, or by poorly made or maintained vehicles.
  • Premises liability accidents caused by property owners and operators who don’t keep their property safe for guests or employees.
  • Dog bite injuries and other accidents caused by pets that a person is responsible for.
  • Wrongful death cases pursued by a victim’s close relatives.
  • Malicious and intentional injuries.  While criminal courts provide punishments for criminals, malicious injury cases can compensate the victims of a crime.

We Only Get Payment When You Do

While you might have heard that hiring a lawyer can cost you more than you can afford, that’s not the case when it comes to personal injury lawyers like Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp.  A Washington DC personal injury lawyer works on contingency, which means we take a percentage of the settlement instead of an hourly fee or a retainer payment.  If your settlement is small then so is our fee, and if you don’t get any compensation then neither will we.

There are two reasons why most personal injury firms work this way.  First, it motivates us to get the best settlement possible for our clients.  Second, it means that anyone can afford professional legal representation even if they go up against a corporation that makes billions of dollars every year and has its own full-time legal department.  Thanks to contingency payments, you can level the playing field between yourself and a multinational conglomerate.

Wingfield, Ginsburg, and Lipp can provide you with a Washington DC personal injury lawyer who will give you professional legal advice and represent your interests against whichever insurance company or business is refusing to give you the compensation you deserve.  So if you’ve been through an accident and you don’t believe it’s your fault, or if an insurance company is making your life hard, contact us today and set up a free initial case review.
