Roanoke Car Accident Lawyer – Helping Victims and Families Recover from Car Crashes
It’s estimated that thousands of car accidents occur every day in the US. Some accidents will be minor, with no injuries and little vehicle damage, while others will be major, involving severe injury or even the loss of life.
As lawyers for Roanoke car accident victims, it is our privilege and duty to be able to serve injured clients and families when they are the victims of accidents caused by others. Our obligation in all cases is to secure full compensation for all pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and all other damages allowed under law, including both damages that have already been incurred, as well as those that are likely to be incurred in the future.

As we represent clients on a contingency fee basis, and because we advance litigation costs for clients, you will not need to come out of pocket any money for attorney’s fees or other costs while your case is ongoing. We will only be entitled to a fee if we are successful in recovering compensation, and litigation costs that are advanced are normally subtracted from a settlement or jury award (if a case is successful).
We are also there to help clients out with many of the related issues of their case, such as gathering medical and insurance information, speaking with physicians to understand future medical prognosis and treatment, and interacting with bill collectors to advise that litigation is proceeding to obtain compensation. When applicable or possible, we will also work with insurance companies and others in seeking to have liens reduced, which can result in more compensation to a client.

How Much Can You Recover in a Virginia Car Accident Case? Understanding the Damages to Which You May be Entitled
If you’ve been injured in a car accident case in Virginia, the types of damages to which you are entitled may include the following:
- Reimbursement for medical costs and treatment.
- Pain and suffering.
- The cost of damaged property, such as a totaled vehicle.
- Lost wages.
- Other damages that are reasonably related to your injuries.
It’s important to note that not only are you eligible to receive compensation for past damages, but you are also entitled to be compensated for future damages that are likely. So, for example, if your leg is badly injured in a car crash and you are likely to require future surgery, you would be entitled to the costs of the future surgery, the pain and suffering that you likely would endure, and lost wages while you recuperate.
If your injuries will permanently affect you physically (like causing ongoing pain) or decrease your earnings capacity (such as if you cannot do the same job that you were doing prior to your injury), you will also be entitled to additional damages. If you can’t enjoy the activities you previously were doing (such as sports), you may also be entitled to further damages.
Our Role is to Seek Full Compensation for You
To do so, we will want to understand, document, and prove the full extent of the damages that you have sustained. We then will present such damages to the attorneys for the driver who hit you. The at-fault driver (and, typically, their insurance company) can then decide whether to pay fair compensation. If an acceptable settlement is not achieved, we will not hesitate to take your case to court.
Our firm, Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt have won numerous cases at trial. If we are retained to represent you, you will have a highly experienced trial team on your side. This experience is crucial, as we believe that the insurance companies on the other side representing that at-fault driver will very likely be taking into account your attorney’s trial experience and record when considering a settlement.
