Washington DC Personal Injury Attorney
No one ever expects to be in an accident. So when you are seriously injured due to another person’s negligence, it can be difficult to know what to do. You could be facing a long and painful recovery, and insurance agents may be pressuring you into giving a statement or accepting a settlement offer that seems too low. At this time, your focus needs to be on healing, but you still need a strong legal advocate to fight the legal battles on your behalf. Hiring an attorney early on in the claims process could benefit you greatly in securing important evidence, witnesses or insurance coverage for medical bills. Insurance companies begin to build their defense as soon as an accident is reported, so why not protect your rights in the same way.
Serving Clients Throughout Washington, D.C., Virginia And Maryland
At The Law Office of Jeffrey J. Downey, P.C., we help individuals and families who have been involved in a range of accident types, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Airplane accidents
- Train accidents
- Premises liability accidents
Our practice is led by experienced attorney Jeffrey Downey. Mr. Downey has more than 25 years of legal experience, including time spent defending insurance companies. This unique legal insight allows our firm to understand how the insurers are likely to defend their position, and how we can counter that for better results. Better preparation through the claims process increases the likelihood that you can obtain an out-of-court settlement without having to file a lawsuit.
Regardless of your injury type, we can help you build a solid claim. If we cannot take on your case, we may be able to assist you in finding a lawyer who can. Our personal injury lawyers work with leading accident scene reconstructionists to prove fault in the accident, top medical specialists who can quantify your injuries, and life-care planners and economists who can calculate the cost of future care. We have been extremely successful in helping past clients recover the maximum compensation amount in all types of personal injury cases, including wrongful death claims.
