Virginia Beach Truck Accidents Lawyer

Truck accidents are one of the most serious types of motor vehicle accidents a person can be involved in. The extreme difference in size between large commercial trucks and other vehicles on the roads makes them a significant safety hazard, potentially placing the lives of all other drivers on the road in danger. For this reason, truck drivers and trucking companies must exercise the strictest caution and control in the operation of these vehicles. Unfortunately, not all drivers take these serious responsibilities into account when on the road.

The consequences resulting from truck accidents can range from broken bones to head and spine injuries to, in the worst of cases, death. The Law Office of Scott R. Barney, believes that no one should have to face these consequences on their own, especially when the truck accident is
caused by the other party involved. Hiring the right Virginia Beach truck accidents lawyer can be the best decision you make. Don’t talk to the insurance companies BEFORE talking to a lawyer.

After an Accident, Make Your Top Priority a Call to a Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Hampton Roads!

As the use of motorcycles as a convenient and cheap alternative mode of transportation continues to increase in the United States, the problem of motorcycle accidents has become a more prominent issue. Unlike other automotive accidents, motorcycle accidents in Virginia Beach pose unique safety risks as a result of the substantial exposure of motorcyclists who are protected by few safety features in their vehicles.

Motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries, including head and spinal trauma, which can permanently alter the course of the victim’s life. Dealing with these injuries and the many other consequences of a motorcycle accident can be very difficult for the victim(s), something the Attorneys at Barney Injury Law understands. Fortunately, however, when these accidents are caused by the negligence of other parties, from individual drivers to manufacturers, victims and their families can often seek retribution and compensation from the party(s) at fault. Hiring the right Virginia Beach, VA, motorcycle accident attorney is crucial to a successful outcome to your claim!

Wrongful Death

One of the worst experiences in life is dealing with the loss of loved one. When another person’s negligence or wrongdoing caused the death of your loved one, it can make the loss even more difficult to handle. However, you may have the right to receive both compensation and closure by filing a wrongful lawsuit.

Although wrongful death can happen in numerous ways, some of the more frequent causes include:

Nursing Home Abuse Neglect Injuries

When you help place a loved one in a nursing home, you undoubtedly look for a nursing home that shows promise. You may interview staff, take a tour, read brochures, conduct independent research, and compare and contrast various homes. The nursing home you eventually decide upon may be one that is affordable or close to your home or filled with high-end services. Regardless of the type of nursing home you choose, you want to trust that the nursing home aides will take care of your loved one with the same attention and concern that you would utilize.

Unfortunately, each year, there are thousands of reports of nursing home neglect and abuse in the state of Virginia alone. Experts predict that a vast majority of instances of abuse and neglect go unreported either due to fear of retaliation or because the family members are unaware. Nursing home abuse and neglect are criminal offenses. Virginia requires nursing home workers to exercise care, respond diligently to medical emergencies, and treat residents gently. However, criminal prosecution is rare. When family members suspect elder abuse, the best path to justice is through a personal injury claim.

Fighting for Fair Compensation when Injured by a Property Defect

Premises liability is a broad area of law involving accidents that happen on someone’s property due to a hazard or dangerous condition. At Barney Injury Law, we have represented clients who were injured while visiting a store, their neighbour, or government property.

After an accident, you may be confused about your legal right to compensation. Fortunately, most property owners should have insurance which will pay out compensation if the owner was at fault. Nevertheless, bringing a successful claim is often harder than it looks, so please contact our Virginia Beach premises liability lawyer for more information.

Dog Bite Injuries

For millions of Americans, dog ownership is a deeply rewarding experience, but unfortunately, the popularity of dogs as pets has made dog bites and attacks a serious problem in the United States. In fact, every year, hundreds of thousands of emergency room visits occur because of dog bites. The injuries dog bites can cause are often very serious, not to mention the emotional and psychological harm that can result from such a traumatic injury.

While not all dog attacks occur due to an owner’s negligence, the sad reality is that many do. In these cases, the owner may be held liable for the ensuing consequences the dog bite has on the victim. The dog bite lawyers at Barney Injury Law understand the struggles that dog bite victims often have to face in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and the Hampton Roads area. If you are a victim of a dog attack in Virginia Beach or the nearby areas, we want to help take action against negligent pet owners and hold them responsible for the crime.

Head and Spine Injuries

Head and spine injuries are some of the most debilitating forms of physical trauma an individual can suffer. Even in relatively mild cases, injury victims must often seek costly medical attention and spend a substantial amount of time away from work during their recovery, losing income in the process. In severe circumstances, head and spine injuries may result in permanent disability or even death.

Head and spine injuries can occur for many different reasons, ranging from car crashes to slip and fall accidents, but whenever someone else is responsible for the accident’s occurrence, injury victims are entitled to seek compensation for their undue losses. Barney Injury Law knows that many people have to face the consequences of these debilitating injuries, and he wants victims to know they are not alone.
