HOW CAN OUR VIRGINIA PERSONAL INJURY
ATTORNEYS HELP YOU?

car-accident-homeCAR ACCIDENTS

We know how scary and confusing it can be when you are injured in an auto accident through no fault of your own. We understand the stress that comes from dealing with insurance companies, medical bills and lost income during your recovery. Our goal is to ease your stress and aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve.

Marks & Harrison thoroughly investigates car accident cases and consults with highly qualified experts in accident reconstruction. We can determine whether another driver’s speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving, fatigued driving or other careless, reckless behavior caused your crash.

We can then seek just compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages by dealing directly with the insurance companies on your behalf. We can seek a financial recovery for you through the at-fault driver’s liability coverage and, if necessary, turn to your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM / UIM) coverage.

Our Virginia car accident lawyers will strive to resolve your case through a timely settlement. We know the important role those funds can play in your ability to move on past your accident. However, if the insurance companies refuse to make a full and fair settlement offer, we will be ready to fight for you in court.

As a preliminary step in your case, we can help you with getting your damaged vehicle repaired or replaced. We can also ensure that your medical care goes uninterrupted and meets your needs.

When an insurance company representative contacts you, simply refer the insurer to your attorney at Marks & Harrison. We can take it from there.

truck-accidents-homeTRUCK ACCIDENTS

In many ways, getting into an accident with a large commercial truck is different than other types of vehicle accidents. It is important to work with a lawyer that understands these important differences.

At Marks & Harrison, our attorneys have many years of experience with helping truck accident victims and their families. We know that, above all, these cases demand taking swift action in order to preserve and gather important evidence.

We can get to work on your case immediately by investigating the accident scene, inspecting the tractor-trailer and other vehicles involved in the crash and obtaining and reviewing records that can point to why the collision occurred and who should be held responsible for the harm you have suffered.

These records can include logbooks, inspection and maintenance records and shipping records. Additionally, we can examine evidence that sheds light on the driver’s competency, physical and mental health and history of traffic offenses, violations of state and federal regulations or, perhaps, drunk driving charges.

In a truck accident case, many parties may be held responsible, including the truck driver, trucking company, truck manufacturer, cargo shipper/loader or a broker between a company and the truck driver. These parties may be based in Virginia or out-of-state. They may be foreign corporations.

At Marks & Harrison, our Virginia truck accident attorneys will work hard to hold all at-fault parties liable for your injuries and losses and pursue full compensation for you.

working-benefits-homeWorkers’ Compensation Benefits

If you have been hurt on the job, suffer from a work-related illness or have lost a loved one due to an occupational injury or disease, you may be entitled to receive Virginia workers’ compensation benefits.

These benefits can cover all of your medical expenses and replace a portion of the wages you lose due to your disability. Unlike a personal injury claim, you do not need to establish that anyone was at fault in order to receive these benefits.

While applying for and receiving workers’ compensation benefits should be a routine process, problems arise when employers and their workers’ compensation insurers refuse to pay claims. It is important to get help from an attorney who will protect your rights.

At Marks & Harrison, we can help if your workers’ compensation claim has been denied or if your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier is dragging its feet when it comes to paying the benefits you need and deserve.

We work with clients across a broad range of industries, including construction, manufacturing and health care.

In addition to pursuing workers’ compensation benefits for you, our Virginia workers’ compensation attorneys can explore all other legal options that may be available in your case.

For instance, if your injury or illness was caused by a non-employer “third party” such as a negligent driver or the manufacturer of defective equipment, we can help you with filing a personal injury or product liability claim.

The options available to you in these types of claims can go well beyond what workers’ compensation benefits cover, allowing you to recover all of your lost wages as well as pain and suffering damages.

ssd-homeSocial Security Disability Benefits

If you cannot work for a living due to a physical or mental impairment, the lawyers of Marks & Harrison can help you to seek Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) narrowly defines “disability.” We can compile medical evidence which establishes that you meet this definition and help you with filing your application for benefits.

If the SSA denies your application or awards a monthly benefits amount that its less than you believe you are entitled to receive, our Virginia SSD benefits lawyers can help you with pursuing an appeal, including representing you in a hearing.

Social Security Disability Application Process

Even though the disability benefits appeals process can be lengthy, we will explore all options for expediting a decision on your claim such as requesting an on-the-record review.

If you meet the SSA’s definition of “disability” but do not meet the work requirement, we can assist you with seeking other forms of assistance such as Supplement Security Income (SSI) benefits.

We can also help you with managing your benefits. For instance, your spouse and child may be eligible for benefits based on your disability. In some cases, you may be able to obtain Virginia workers’ compensation benefits in addition to SSD benefits.

We charge no fees unless we are able to obtain the benefits you need.
