District Of Columbia Personal Injury

Accidents happen, but if you were injured in an accident that was someone else's fault, you deserve compensation for your injuries. Whether you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, slip-and-fall, medical malpractice case, boating accident or other accident, District Of Columbia personal injury law allows you to collect money from the person or company that caused the accident. Depending on your specific situation, you may be entitled to money to pay for all medical expenses related to your injury, pain and suffering, lost wages, the cost of hiring someone to help you in your home and the cost to repair or replace any property damaged or destroyed in your accident.

A District Of Columbia personal injury lawyer can help evaluate your situation and explain your legal options. If the District Of Columbia personal injury attorney thinks you have a viable case, your lawyer will gather evidence related to your accident and accident-related expenses. Your attorney will then contact the party at fault in your accident, attempt to negotiate a settlement or file a lawsuit if an out-of-court settlement can't be reached.
