1. A WAW Personal Injury Lawyer Has Expertise In Complex Litigation.

Not all attorneys have the same level of experience, and our personal injury lawyers at WAW have over 75 years of combined experience representing injured clients in the Shenandoah Valley. Our lawyers are well-versed in the intricacies of personal injury law, including strategy, best practices, applicable law and case precedents. You will have the benefit of regular communication directly with our attorneys, not just paralegals or support staff.

2. Our Lawyers Offer A Tailored Approach.

Our attorneys offer a hands-on, custom approach that affords our clients personalized legal advice tailored to your specific situation, rather than using a generic approach that may not be best for your specific case. WAW lawyers conduct thorough investigations into the circumstances surrounding your accident. They gather crucial evidence such as police reports, witness statements, surveillance footage, and expert testimonies to strengthen your case. This investigative work is essential for proving liability and establishing the extent of damages, and is essential for providing the best possible outcome.

3. Wharton Aldhizer & Weaver Has Significant Resources To Support You And Your Case.

Handling a personal injury claim means wading through piles of paperwork, juggling deadlines, and navigating legal procedures. Our law firm was built for this. Our staff actively manages these administrative tasks on your behalf and makes sure all documentation is filed correctly and on time. We also maintain organized records of medical bills, treatment reports, and other relevant documents necessary for building a compelling case.

Often, personal injury claims will involve legal issues outside the scope of practice of a typical personal injury lawyer, such as tax or trust issues. Our clients benefit from the wide range of lawyers practicing at WAW, including in-house tax and trust lawyers.

4. Your WAW Personal Injury Lawyer Knows The Tricks Insurance Adjusters Use.

Insurance companies care more about making money than making sure you’re okay. Your WAW lawyer knows the methods an insurance adjuster uses to undervalue your claim and help you get the most money possible. If you hire a WAW personal injury lawyer, they’ll fight for what’s fair for you.

5. If Negotiations Fail, Your WAW Lawyer Will Fight For You At Trial

Your WAW lawyer will represent you in court if negotiations fail to produce a fair settlement. This involves drafting legal documents, presenting arguments to a judge or jury, and cross-examining witnesses. Because the Wharton Aldhizer & Weaver team takes the time to get to know our clients, we are able to present your case in a way that resonates with judges and juries.
