AREAS OF PRACTICE
- Accidents, Personal Injury, and Wrongful Death
No one asks to be in an accident, such as a car crash, or injured at work. If you’ve been in an accident or hurt as the result of the reckless actions of someone else, you expect – and deserve – full and fair compensation. Unfortunately, in car crashes and other injury cases, defendants and insurance companies will do everything possible to avoid paying what they owe. They may even blame you.
I help injury victims and the families who have lost a loved one get full and fair compensation from those who try to deny liability. I represent clients in virtually all types of injury matters, including traffic accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice, animal bites, motorcycle crashes, and workplace injuries.
It’s important for clients to know that I am a trial lawyer. I will not hesitate to take a case to court. If defendants and insurance companies will not pay a fair settlement, I and my clients are well prepared for trial, and to let a jury determine liability and damages.
- Workers’ Compensation
If you’ve been injured on the job, you should contact a workers compensation lawyer in Abingdon, VA to help you and your family try and obtain the full benefits to which you are entitled under the law. Unfortunately, the employer insurer will have a vested interest when an injury occurs to deny or minimize payment. With more than 25 years of legal practice, the Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt, a workers compensation lawyer Abingdon VA respects, has helped injured clients get the full amount of compensation to which they are due.
- Social Security Disability
If you’re disabled and burdened from not being able to work, you might be entitled to disability benefits. However, obtaining these benefits can be a challenging task to handle on your own. The Social Security Administration can initially deny your claim and has rigorous requirements for proving your entitlement to these benefits that can be daunting to handle without the help of a lawyer.Mark T. Hurt has over twenty-five years of legal experience that he can draw upon in helping injured and disabled clients. Our firm can make sure that going through the process of working with The Social Security Administration is not a discouraging one. Our firm will work to get you your benefits in a timely manner.
- Reckless Driving and Speeding in Virginia
If you’ve been charged with reckless driving or driving 10 or more miles over the speed limit in Virginia, the law provides that jail time is possible upon a conviction. Tennessee also provides harsh penalties for speeding. Don’t take this chance.
As an experienced Virginia traffic ticket lawyer, I vigorously defend all traffic charges brought against clients, and seek to have charges dismissed or reduced, often to much more minor offenses that involve small fines and/or traffic school. I also provide representation for motorists charged with speeding and reckless driving in Tennessee, which also provides harsh penalties for these matters.
Fraud against the government is reprehensible. I and my firm have helped whistleblowers in exposing fraud, resulting in millions of dollars being recovered for the federal government, and substantial compensation for whistleblowers for their patriotic actions.

We do not provide “assembly-line” services. When you retain me as your attorney, you will be working directly with me. You will have my attention and dedication throughout the duration of your matter.

The Firm also accepts credit cards for non-contingency matters. I believe in providing legal services efficiently, using technology and always being mindful of handling every client’s matter in their best interests.
