For more than 65 years, the Norfolk car accident lawyers at Rutter Mills have been helping clients get the money they need after a serious car crash.


If someone else was responsible for your crash, you should not have to worry about paying for the consequences. Instead, you should focus on resting and recovering. Let Rutter Mills fight the insurance companies for you. 


Is It Worth Getting a Car Accident Lawyer?

If you suffered an injury in a car crash and want fair compensation from the insurance company, it is worth getting a Norfolk car accident lawyer. Even if you are unsure whether you want to file a claim, you should get a no-fee consultation with an attorney who will assess your case and tell you what your options are.

Medical bills and repair expenses pile up much more than you would expect. Even if your injuries seem minor, you should file a car accident claim with Rutter Mills. Our team works on contingency, which means we will not charge for our services unless you receive a settlement or win your case in court. Our fees come out of a portion of your compensation, so we do not get paid until you do.

Experience On Your Side

Insurance will try their hardest to disqualify you from any compensation, but experienced Rutter Mills Norfolk Car Accident Attorney will protect you from the tricks and obstacles they will put in your way.

If you are not sure whether it is worth filing a claim for your accident, a member of our team will listen to your story and explain your options. They will be honest and tell you if you have a valid injury case.

How Much is Your Claim Worth?

Your Norfolk car accident attorney will calculate your damages using bills, receipts, and other documents that show how much you have paid after your crash. These damages can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage and car repair costs
  • Lost wages, diminished earning potential, and disability
  • Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other non-economic damages
  • Punitive damages, if the other party exhibited “egregious behavior”
  • Wrongful death of a loved

Calculating Damages

Every crash differs and there is a wide range of damages you can experience. It is impossible to say how much compensation you could get from your claim, without first knowing the details of your accident, and a website or app claiming to calculate a total for your unique case can be wildly incorrect.

The best way to know for certain is to have our expert Norfolk car accident team review your claim, investigate the facts, and assess your damages. We understand how important it is for you to get the compensation you are owed, and we will see it through that your case is given the respect it deserves.

Time is of the Essence

Some factors that could affect how long it takes to settle your car accident claim can include:

  • How long the other party and their attorney decide to delay – some defense lawyers use delays as a strategy and purposefully drag their feet.
  • How long your treatment takes – negotiations might have to wait until after you recover
  • How large your claim is – bigger cases include more evidence and take longer to settle.
  • Whether there are any legal issues or disputes in your case.

You can rest assured your Rutter Mills team of experts will do whatever they can to ensure your case goes quickly and smoothly. Before they get to work, your attorney will let you know what the timeframe of your claim may be.

There is a deadline, known as the statute of limitations, to file your car accident claim. Virginia’s statute of limitations for car accidents is normally two years from the date of the accident.The  Code of Virginia § 8.01-243 sets the deadline for two years after your injury in most cases.

Act Fast

While two years may seem generous, sometimes the deadline is much shorter, possibly weeks. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to gather critical evidence to prove your case and the smaller your chances are of getting all the compensation you deserve.

Contact Rutter Mills as soon as possible if you have been injured in a car crash. The sooner you act, the more we will be able to help you.

Thank you to my Attorney - Eric Porcaro and paralegal Kamilah White for doing such a stellar job on my case! It was a real pleasure working with this team!

Christopher D

When I think of Rutter Mills I think of Ms.Kamilah White and Mr.Boran. Thank you both. Awesome job. You guys made it look easy. If there was 10 Stars, you would have 10 in my book.

Daniel M

Adam Lotkin, Max Baker, and the team behind them are amazing people. They did a great job with communicating and explaining each step of the process and they do the absolute best in ensuring their clients are taken care of. For my case in specific, we expected to wait 2 year to settle l, but through the team’s hard work and a little luck, it was settled in less than a year. I would not hesitate to come back to them if I ever needed to.
