When Can You Sue Someone After a Herndon Car Accident?

Most of us do not want to be in a position where we have to sue someone to recover compensation after a car accident. We don’t want to be viewed as a greedy person who is just out to make a quick buck. If you have this mentality, you need to change it, especially if you have been hurt in an accident.

Making the Decision to File a Lawsuit
Just because you were injured in a Herndon car accident, doesn’t mean you are automatically entitled to compensation. You have to prove that the other person was careless and that this negligence was the cause of your injury. If you can’t prove that the other driver’s carelessness led to your injury, you are not going to win your case.

If you are not sure if you should file a lawsuit, you need to talk with a Herndon personal injury attorney. A lawyer will be able to explain whether you have a case against the driver. Keep in mind that the majority of cases are settled outside of trial, so you are more than likely not looking at a drawn out court battle.

Obtain the Information You Need
We understand that you probably have many questions following your accident. That is why we offer the book, Five Deadly Sins That Can Wreck Your Injury Claim, for free to Virginia residents. This book should be read before talking with any insurance adjuster or attorney.

We opened a satellite office in April 2011 to serve our clients in Herndon and the western part of Fairfax County.  Contact us at 703.584.7277 to set up your appointment.
