Car accidents happen frequently in Northern Virginia, specifically in Stafford County, and the majority of those accidents are due to:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving Drowsy

Car accidents have the potential to result in devastating damage and can lead to lengthy trials.

Fortunately, many car accidents are small enough for the accident victims to settle themselves. Though it is a good idea to contact an attorney for a free consultation, if your car accident resulted in few injuries that resolved quickly, you can watch our free webinars on settling a car accident without an attorney and negotiating with your insurance company.

When Should You Contact an Attorney About Your Stafford County Car Accident?

First, if you are injured in any way, treating your injuries should be your first priority. There is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a car accident lawsuit, so there is no reason to contact an attorney while you are riding in the ambulance.

If any of the following is true for your car accident, contact an attorney for a free consultation:

  • Your sustained severe injuries (broken bones, torn ligaments, or lacerations)
  • The driver’s insurance company is offering a quick settlement before you finished treating.
  • The other driver is underinsured, and you need to claim against your Med Pay policy.

Generally, car accidents that are property-damage only or there is little dispute over the medical bills can be settled without an attorney.

What Should You Look for in a Stafford County Personal Injury Attorney?

Not all car accident attorneys are the same. Most follow the “traditional” rules of personal injury cases. Your choice in attorneys should be based on:

  • Their experience with car accidents like yours (truck accident, DUI accident, or pedestrian car accident.)
  • The reviews and testimonials from their current or former clients.
  • Their ranking on sites like or Martindale Hubbell.
  • Phone interviews with the attorney where you discuss your case.

We encourage you to research many attorneys while you look for someone to help with your case. BenGlassLaw also offers articles, webinars, and books that will teach you the basics of car accident cases.

Searching for a Stafford County Car Accident Attorney and
Not Sure What to Look For?

There are so many attorneys out there talking about how "aggressive" they are or how they "care" for you that it's just silly - and we've found that if you need to say it that much, you should probably spend more time doing it instead. They go on and on talking about themselves, and rarely ever share any information that could help you with your case. We want to change all of that...

We want to actually provide you with real, useful information about car accidents and other personal injury claims for you.

We are sorry that something in your life has caused you to be having to look for an attorney. We honestly hope that you recover from your injuries and that you can get back to living your life. That's why we are making it easy for you to helpful information for you so that you can make smart decisions about your case.

If you have questions, the best way to start your conversation with our professional team at BenGlassLaw is to pick up the phone and dial us - the conversation is 100% confidential and without any obligation:

The BenGlassLaw 25% Fee Agreement

All of our personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. What that means is, there's no upfront cost to the client and there's no hourly rate, so you won't get a ledger at the end of the case. A percentage of the recovery is the attorney's fee. A contingent fee is very common in personal injury cases, and almost every personal injury attorney in the United States operate on a contingent fee basis.

The standard personal injury fee is typically a third of the recovery. For example, if your case settles for $100,000 your personal injury attorney's fee is $33,333.

Our Fee is Different. We Charge a Sliding Fee.

Our personal injury fees are 25% of the recovery if we settle your case without ever filing a lawsuit, AND our fee is 25% of your recovery if we file a lawsuit, and settle the case any time before 90 days before trial. If we get within 90 days before trial, that's really when all the work happens, and so our fee goes up 33% of the settlement.

While most personal injury attorneys will charge you a flat 33%, we charge less depending on when we settle your claim. The reason for this is most casework happens in the 90 days before trial. If your case settles before this period, we've done less work and therefore charge our clients less.

The only cases our personal injury team handles are auto accidents, dog bites, and slip and fall cases. We're not reviewing contracts, we're not doing criminal defense, and so we don't have to reinvent the wheel and do all the research on all of these cases. We're an efficient machine, and we're good at what we do, and we know personal injury law in Virginia. We are better at using our time and our energy, and we can pass those cost savings along to the clients.

Important exclusions to our 25% fee agreement: Our firm does handle medical malpractice cases and long-term disability appeals cases. Those are much more time-intensive from day one, from the time that they come into the office, and much more expensive for us from day one. In those cases, we have a different fee structure.
