Types of Personal Injury Claims in Washington, DC

The types of personal injury claims our attorneys frequently handle in Washington, DC, can range from car and truck accidents to medical malpractice, premises liability claims, and defective product cases. The most common types of personal injury cases include:

Car Accidents

After a serious car accident in Washington, DC, your life can easily be turned upside down. With mounting medical bills, loss of a steady income, and a damaged vehicle, you will need assistance when speaking with the insurance carrier. The insurance adjuster will do whatever they can to get you to settle for less than what your personal injury is really worth. But instead of taking the first settlement you get, you should consider speaking with an experienced car accident attorney to learn your next steps.

Car crashes are often the fault of another driver’s negligence and can result in serious bodily injury, such as traumatic brain injuries, and lead to severe damages. Many times, these accidents can be due to another driver being distracted, falling asleep, intoxicated or drunk, or just being reckless. You need a DC car accident lawyer to help you tackle the legal system, understand contributory negligence laws, and get you the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accidents

Getting into an accident with a commercial vehicle, such as a semi-truck or 18-wheeler, can have serious, even deadly consequences. With such heavy truck traffic along the interstates that run through our area, such as I-295, I-95, and I-695, the possibility of getting into a truck accident in Washington, DC, is very high. Tractor-trailer accidents can be complex, and multiple parties may be held responsible.

Truck companies have teams of people ready to investigate these deadly accidents, and injured victims must do the same. The best DC injury attorneys can help preserve evidence and reconstruct the truck crash to win the accident case.  That’s why you’ll want a skilled team of the best Washington, DC truck accident lawyers by your side.

Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, medical malpractice cases have steadily increased over the past few decades. When the professionals you trust with your health make a careless mistake, they endanger your life and breach the duty of care. If this occurs, you and your family can pursue a legal claim against the healthcare provider.

Medical malpractice claims are highly complex, and you will need a medical malpractice attorney to examine your case to discover where the mistake was made. Let an experienced medical malpractice lawyer in Washington, DC, help you with your claim, whether it involved a medication error or a mistake during surgery.

Bicycle Accidents

As the number of bicyclists in Washington, DC, thanks to the Capital Bikeshare program, increases, so does the number of bicycle accidents in the DC area.  The injuries stemming from a bicycle accident are often catastrophic, and you could be facing thousands of dollars in medical bills. You’ll need an experienced DC bike accident lawyer to hold the at-fault party responsible for your injuries and to ensure that you receive fair compensation for the accident.

DC Metro Accidents

The DC metro is responsible for many accidents that result in serious injuries. Filing a personal injury lawsuit against the Metro is not easy. Victims must deal with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority and meet harsh deadlines. If you are injured on the DC Metro, hiring a personal injury law firm with the experience needed to face the WMATA, such as the attorneys at Regan Zambri Long, is best.

Wrongful Death Claims

When a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s negligence,  our DC wrongful death attorneys have the experience to help you get through this tough time in your life and fight to recover the compensation you deserve.

A wrongful death claim will give the survivors maximum compensation for their loved one’s passing. It will hold the negligent parties responsible for their family member’s death and make sure the family’s future is secure.

Product Liability

A dangerous or defective product can put consumers at risk for serious injuries, illness, or even death. Product liability cases are complicated and need the help of a lawyer. Our product liability lawyers in Washington, DC, are here to help you with your claim. We will determine the responsible parties for your injuries, whether it’s the designer or manufacturer of the product, the marketing team, or the business selling the goods, rest assured we will make sure your injuries will be compensated.

However, if a property owner or operator is negligent in their duty of care in DC, injuries will occur, leaving  you with an unexpected medical bill.

Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney in Washington, DC

Legal representation is abundant in the District of Columbia, which can lead accident victims to think every law firm is equal. But to hire the best lawyer, you need to know ahead of time what you are looking for and how potential lawyers measure up. Some important considerations include:

  • Expertise in Personal Injury Law: When dealing with a DC personal injury case, you don’t want a lawyer with just any law degree. You need a skilled attorney who is well-versed in personal injury law. Many personal injury cases require proving someone else’s negligence, thus requiring independent investigation and established relationships with expert witnesses and medical experts.
  • Experience with Your Specific Case Type: Within personal injury law are further sub-specialties. Attorneys may have one specialty or many, so it is important to check to make sure any potential lawyer has experience with cases similar to yours.
  • Success With Settlements and Verdicts: Once you have found a potential law firm or lawyer specializing in cases like yours, you must be sure they have a track record of success. A lawyer who never makes a recovery for clients is not a good choice for your case.
  • Communication and Attorney-Client Relationship: When you hire a DC  injury lawyer, you enter into an attorney-client relationship. And as with any relationship, communication is key. You should pay close attention to how easy it is to reach your attorney and how easy it is to communicate with them. Do they respond quickly? Do they answer your questions? Or are they hard to reach and/or evasive? You must trust your lawyer throughout your DC personal injury lawsuit and communicate well with them.
  • Fee Structure and Ultimate Cost: One of the significant factors to consider is how you will pay your attorney. Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. We do not take any payment until we’ve recovered in your favor. Contingency fees for Washington, DC, personal injury cases can often run between 30-40 percent of the recovery. This fee structure allows personal injury victims to seek compensation and justice without additional financial burden. Legal fees can quickly add up when paying out of pocket, so many clients prefer a contingency fee structure.

How Should I Prepare for My First Meeting with a DC Accident Attorney?

You should have the information you have on the accident. This includes any photos or videos of the accident and your injuries, incident reports, medical records, treatment plans, any communication you may have had with the insurance company, and any bills related to the accident. During the initial consultation, your DC accident attorney will examine all the evidence and paperwork and explain your next steps.

You should also have a list of questions to ask the injury attorney about their experience with these types of cases, their track record, and their opinion on the strength of your case. Make sure you have all your questions answered during the consult so you can make an informed decision.

The Personal Injury Claim Process in Washington, DC

While the specific steps in a claim may vary depending on your case, here is a general overview of the process in Washington, DC:

Compensation and Damages Following an Accident in DC

Two types of financial compensation are available for catastrophic injury victims following an accident in the District of Columbia: economic and non-economic damages.

Economic damages, also known as compensatory damages, include monetary losses you may have had following an accident, such as medical treatments, lost wages, property damage, and rehabilitation costs.

Non-economic damages refer to any compensation you may receive for any subjective, non-monetary losses. These types of losses include pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment, and loss of companionship.

In rare cases, you may be eligible for punitive damages, which punish the person or business for the behavior that caused the accident.
