How a Virginia personal injury attorney at Rutter Mills can help you

Many accident victims attempt to settle their claims themselves, until they ultimately become frustrated and overwhelmed by the lack of cooperation from the insurance company. The truth of the matter is that a personal injury lawyer can help victims throughout the claims process.

The second you are involved in a serious accident, the insurance company switches from being at your side to the opposition – looking out for their best interest, and their bottom line. When you are in an accident, an attorney plays the advocate roll and helps level the playing field against a well-funded defense of the insurance company. While a lawyer will do many things for you throughout your case, none may be more important than letting the insurance companies know that they can’t push you around and that your claim must be taken seriously.

Rutter Mills examines every legal angle when determining the best strategy for our clients. We are comprehensive in case preparation and enlist experts from our network of industry professionals whose testimony can bolster your claim for damages. We have the investigative resources to prove the full extent of your pain and suffering and economic losses, which can be used to increase your monetary recovery.

Types of personal injury compensation

Personal injury litigation can help victims secure money for past, current and anticipated damages — financial burdens that can quickly overwhelm when the breadwinner is unable to work. When accidents involve catastrophic injury such as spinal cord trauma, traumatic brain injury or paralysis, families are at heightened risk for bankruptcy, as hospital bills pile up. Our experienced lawyers know how to maximize the value of your personal injury claim and fight for the monetary compensation you deserve.

Personal injury settlements and verdicts are intended to make the plaintiff “whole” again by reimbursing for losses including:

  • Lost wages and income
  • Medical expenses – past, current and future
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Physical or vocational rehabilitation, medical assistive devices
  • Emotional trauma and anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium

What Our Clients Say

"The staff at Rutter Mills worked for me from the first minute I was in their office. They called and emailed every week and kept better records than I did. I was injured and had to undergo two operations from the accident. The recovery period was long with many physical therapy sessions over the next year. The staff emailed me many times, asking if there was anything they could do to make me feel better during my recovery. During this time my attorney was active in filing the paperwork for court litigation, but was contacted by the other law firm that wished to discuss settling my case. Depositions were done and the final one was scheduled and I was present to complete that phase of the case. My attorney got a maximum award for me and I will be forever grateful for his and their staff's work and attention during my time of legal need. Rutter Mills will be my only call if I ever need legal representation in the future." ★★★★★ -Dan, Rutter Mills Client
