Involved in a Car Accident?
We Can Help.
A car crash occurs every four minutes on our state’s roads, as reported by the Virginia Highway Safety Office. In too many cases, these incidents are not actually “accidents.” They are the results of negligent, reckless acts by careless people. At Marks & Harrison, our Richmond car accident lawyers believe these drivers need to be held accountable. We also believe that their victims deserve full and fair compensation for their injuries.
Because the results obtained in specific cases depend on a variety of factors unique to each case, past case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in future cases undertaken by a lawyer or law firm.
Insurance companies are out to protect their dollars. That means aggressive action needs to be taken to protect car accident victims’ rights. We have the skill, experience and resources to stand up to these companies. For more than 100 years, our firm has successfully helped people secure the funds they need and deserve to carry on with their lives.

Driving in Virginia is as dangerous as ever. Virginia automobile crashes, fatalities and injuries all increased in the past year, the Highway Safety Office reports. Statistics show that more than 120,000 crashes occurred on our streets and highways, including nearly 5,000 in Richmond. These wrecks resulted in 764 deaths and 63,382 injuries.
Why? That’s a good question. The answer is complex.
At Marks & Harrison, we know that the main factor behind car accidents is negligence. Many drivers fail to fulfill a duty of care that they owe to others on the road. Negligent driving can take many different forms, including the following:
Another form of carelessness is driving without any insurance coverage. When a driver causes an accident without any coverage or lacks coverage that can pay for the full extent of a victim’s injuries, one may need to turn to their own insurance company to recover under an uninsured / underinsured (UM / UIM) policy.
