A WAW Personal Injury Attorney Will Protect Your Rights & Interests.

When you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence on the road, a WAW personal injury attorney ensures that your rights and interests are protected. Our litigation team uses their comprehensive understanding of local laws and insurance claims processes to safeguard your rights.

WAW attorneys Frank Hilton and Allie Humphries are especially skilled in litigating medical issues and can coordinate with your doctor. In many cases, a settlement can help pay your medical bills, testing expenses, and cover loss of income due to the accident.

In short, your WAW attorney will be an advocate in your corner who navigates the legal system’s complexity so you can focus on your recovery.

Even If You’re Not Seriously Hurt, You Should Reach Out To WAW.

Contacting Wharton Aldhizer & Weaver after a car accident eases immediate stress and protects you in the long term. Here are a few common reasons for hiring an attorney from WAW, even when you’re not immediately injured:

  • Statute of Limitations: You have only two years after an accident to file a claim. However, preserving evidence as soon as possible after an accident is essential. The quicker you contact us, the faster we can collect the evidence.
  • Delayed Symptoms: It’s not uncommon to experience a delay in the onset of symptoms related to your injury.
  • Insurance Manipulation: Insurance companies may attempt to reach victims directly, offering out-of-court settlements with minimal compensation. Your WAW litigation team can prevent such manipulation.
  • Uninsured Motorist Claims: VA law makes it mandatory to cover uninsured motorists, but it can be a complicated process to get compensation.

Our personal injury attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Perhaps most importantly, working with an experienced attorney provides peace of mind during a challenging time. Your WAW lawyer will walk you through each phase of the process and investigate the details of your accident to enact an appropriate strategy for your claim.

Wharton Aldhizer & Weaver also handles car accident cases on a contingency basis. This means you don’t pay any attorney fees unless we are successful in obtaining compensation on your behalf. This is just one of the many ways we help individuals and families in our community.
