How will a lawyer from The Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt help you after a car accident?

You are left feeling helpless, shaken up, and out of sorts before you can even assess your physical damage. The car accident was not your fault, but you are left to pick up the pieces. Many clients contact The Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt, a Personal Injury Attorney serving Abingdon, VA residents, to help get the compensation they deserve after being physically or emotionally injured in a car accident that was not their fault.

While you may think it is best to settle this matter out of court, trust The Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt to protect your rights.
Speak with one of our lawyers before filing a claim
In many cases, you will need to file a claim with either your insurance company, the at-fault driver’s insurance company, or both. Our Abingdon, VA personal injury attorney can ensure that you file claims with the right company to receive the most out of your claim. For example, while you might think you should only file with the at-fault driver’s insurance company to receive compensation for property damage, your own insurance company can help with your personal injury protection (or PIP).
Unfortunately, it is the insurance company’s goal to find ways to reduce or even eliminate ways they have to pay you, but by hiring a personal injury attorney in Abingdon, VA, we will work hard to make sure the insurance company pays you what they owe you.
What Damages are you eligible to collect?
By hiring one of our attorneys, you can figure out what damages you can collect. These damages might include:
- Lost wages. This includes time you were forced to miss from work while you recovered from your injury or stayed in the hospital
- Anticipated medical costs. Medical costs that we can reasonably anticipate you will incur at a later date from this auto accident.
- Pain and suffering. There is a potential you are eligible for thousands of dollars for the physical and emotional pain.
- Reduced earning capacity. Time taken away from your job either short-term or long-term because of an injury.
