Falls and Injuries: Seeking Justice and Compensation

Understanding Falls and Injuries: A Comprehensive Overview

A simple fall can lead to a devastating injury, causing unanticipated pain, stress, overwhelming medical bills, and lost wages. A phenomenon that might seem trivial, falls and injuries merit deeper analysis, often leading to serious and incapacitating situations that require a resolution. At The Law Office of B. Patrick Agnew PLLC, we believe in justice and in advocating for those victims who have been wronged. This article provides a thorough understanding of falls and injuries, and how victims can rightfully seek justice and compensation.

The Impending Danger of Falls and Injuries

Every year, countless individuals in Virginia suffer from falls and injuries due to various circumstances. The reasons could vary – from a puddle of water left unattended to defective stairs or walkways. These hazardous conditions can inflict grave injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Brain and head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Internal injuries

When is it Right to Seek Legal Help?

If you or your loved one has encountered a fall and suffered injuries due to someone else’s neglect or negligence, it is time to consult a personal injury attorney. Here is why you might consider taking this step:

  • Your injuries are severe and long-term.
  • Your medical treatments have been pricey.
  • The responsible party denies liability.
  • You’re not being adequately compensated for your loss.

B. Patrick Agnew: An Advocate for Victims

The Law Office of B. Patrick Agnew PLLC, based in Virginia, understands that falls and injuries can be traumatic. With a depth of legal experience, we aim to represent victims and do everything within the confines of law to ensure justice is served, and rightful compensation attained.

The Process of Seeking Justice and Compensation

The entire process can seem complex, but with our office’s assistance, it becomes considerably manageable. The steps usually involve:

  • Documenting the event: Gathering evidence and documenting everything related to the incident, including medical bills, witness statements and photographs.
  • Filing a claim: The first legal step towards seeking justice includes filing a personal injury claim.
  • Negotiation: The negotiation process would entail discussing the compensation amount with the involved parties.
  • Litigation: If negotiations fail, the case can proceed to court where a judge or jury will determine the final verdict.

Additionally, depending upon the extent of the injury and circumstance of the fall, the victim can seek compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, pain and suffering, and psychological distress.

Your Rights as an Injured

Accidents often leave victims in a vulnerable state. But it’s essential to know that, as a victim, you’re entitled to certain rights. Some of these include:

  • The right to a safe environment
  • The right to claim damages for injuries caused by negligence or intentional harm
  • The right to discuss the accident confidentially with a lawyer
  • The right to bring the matter before a court

Understanding these rights can guide your response following a fall and injury.

I was recommended to Patrick by another lawyer, it was the best recommendation I have ever had. I was getting the run around by the workers comp insurance company for months. With in a week of retaining Patrick that changed immediately. He got answers and results that seemed impossible for me to. When you are dealing with Patrick it doesn’t take long to figure out he really does care about your wellbeing and getting you taken care of. You are not just a number to him. He always answers or calls you back, I called him several times late on a Friday left a message to call me Monday not Patrick he called me late Friday. You want find that anywhere. He is always there to answer any questions or concerns you have and happy to do so.He also has a great support staff Jennifer was always so pleasant and helpful. She stayed on top of weekly requirements and anything else I needed help with. Patrick went up against some tough opposition and worked relentlessly to get me a fair settlement. I came to Patrick at my wits end and in the end I feel like things could not have gone any better. Thank you Patrick and Jennifer for all you have done. If you need workers comp help you will not find any better.

I tried 3 times on my own to get the disability benefits that I deserved and was denied almost immediately each time. I was about to lose my home and fell into major depression and diagnosed having generalized anxiety disorder due to stress. I told myself to try 1 more time. I asked my attorney, who does not specialize in disability cases, who should I contact. He immediately told me to contact B. Patrick Agnew. The firm agreed to take my case. Their paralegal Jennifer Martin was a God send to me. It only took the firm 4 months to help get my benefits approved. If anyone needs a disability attorney, look no further. Make a call and you will not regret it!!!!!
