Why Do I Need an Injury Attorney?

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an accident, chances are you are emotionally, physically, and financially overwhelmed.

Agreeing to a hasty settlement can leave you undercompensated and unprepared for the challenges that may lie ahead.

Benefits of Hiring Experienced Representation

The advantages of hiring quality legal counsel are numerous and can make all the difference in the outcome of your claim.

Here's why an attorney can be your strongest ally:

  • Provide a true assessment of what your case is worth - With more than sixty-five years of combined experience, our team of Newport News personal injury lawyers has the in-depth insight needed to evaluate the complete scope and value of your case. Compensation can include costs for past and future medical treatment, loss of income, and long-term rehabilitative care.
  • Put the insurance companies on notice - Some insurance companies use a formula or a computer program to assist in determining their settlement offers. Often, this can lead to low valuations of claims. Predictably, they will attempt to get you to settle for the minimum amount, regardless of if it is fair or reasonable. At Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C., we are tough and resolute negotiators. Hiring our firm sends a message to the insurance company that you won't settle for anything less than maximum recovery.
  • Resolve even the most complex cases - Certain personal injury cases, such as traumatic brain injury and trucking accidents also involve complicated evidence and legal issues. We can deliver the astute legal counsel required to unravel the complexities of your case and achieve a successful resolution in the most efficient way possible.
  • Thorough investigation and case preparation - An ill-prepared case can result in less-than-adequate compensation. We have the resources needed to methodically investigate all the particulars of you case and can deliver the diligent attention to detail required to ensure nothing falls through the cracks.
  • Alleviates your stress - Once you are represented by counsel, insurance companies can no longer contact you. Let us take on the burdens of your case so you can focus on recovery.
  • Levels the playing field - Each of our founding partners have represented insurance companies in the past. This has made us keenly aware of the tactics used to either deny liability or devaluate your claim. We can provide the proactive strategies required to counteract their methods and achieve a successful outcome.
  • Fight for your rights - As your advocate, we can champion your case before the courts. Making sure that your story is heard and that you receive compensation for all of your losses is our primary concern.
  • No fee unless your case is won - Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis.
