Fairfax Personal Injury Lawyer Practice Areas
When you are injured in a car accident, the insurance companies will minimize their exposure by doing all they possibly can to ensure that you get nothing. The simple reality is that insurance companies are greedy, and they will deny or low-ball as many claims as they can in order to turn a profit. Likewise, these insurance companies don’t want you to hire an attorney because they are hoping you will accept a quick, easy cash payment even though their offer is much lower than what you actually deserve. Don’t accept their offer. Instead, contact our office and allow us the honor of fighting for you and making sure you never settle for less than you deserve.
Juries tend dislike motorcyclists because they incorrectly believe that these riders have some sort of “death wish.” They don’t. Instead, all these riders want is to reach their desired destination safely. The disdain juries have for motorcyclists is so well-known amongst attorneys that lawyers for insurance companies have actually argued that it was the motorcyclist’s fault for being injured because they’re the ones who chose to ride a motorcycle.
Fairfax personal injury lawyer Randall Sousa is exceptionally skilled at dismantling these types of arguments which seek to play on jurors’ bias against motorcyclists. We know how to convince a jury that, no matter what their view on motorcyclists may be, every person is entitled to choose their own method of transportation, and if another driver has caused a person injury, then they are required to pay for those injuries – even if those injuries would have been less severe had the person not been riding a motorcycle.
Each year, more than one million Americans suffer a brain injury. Of those who do suffer such injury, 50,000 of these injuries result in death. In order to successfully try a brain injury case, your Fairfax personal injury lawyer must have a strong understanding of medical science and medical terminology. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we not only have an exceptional ability to understand the scientific intricacies and nuances of brain injuries, but we also have the knowledge and experience to help you obtain compensation for the injury itself – including the lifetime of medical care and expenses which accompany devastating and permanently disabling brain injuries. What we are most proud of, however, is our ability to get a jury to understand the true economic, physical, mental, and emotional costs and challenges which not only lie ahead for the remainder of our client’s life, but for the remainder of their family members’ lives as well.
When someone suffers a serious injury in a pedestrian accident, they generally ask “Why did this happen to me?” As a Fairfax personal injury lawyer, the only true (and obvious) answer I can give is that the driver failed to yield, or pay attention, or was distracted, or impaired by drugs or alcohol, or in a hurry. Yet, none of these answers get to the philosophical question of “Why did this happen?” Perhaps the most straightforward answer I can give to this question is that “sometimes, life just isn’t fair.”
There are certainly many times where the thought of my client’s suffering keeps me up at night, but at the end of the day, “why” they were injured is not something I can dwell on if I intend to help my client. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we are about the bottom line in making sure that our client is cared for and compensated. So if the person who hit my client was reckless, or failed to yield, or was drunk, or on drugs, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that they are responsible for my client’s injuries, and either they themselves, or their insurance company, are going to pay for it.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries are a species of premises liability, and they occur when a landlord, business owner, or other property owner fails to provide their guests or customers with a safe place to walk or when they failing to warn that a surface may be hazardous or slippery. Slip and fall injuries can be complex, and that is why it is imperative that you contact a Fairfax personal injury lawyer as soon as you have been injured. Whenever a client comes to us for help, we will conduct a comprehensive investigation into the facts, interview witnesses, take photographs of the scene and the injury, and review the client’s medical records. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we not only take care of all of these things, but we also take care of all the legal rigmarole associated with a lawsuit and, as always, we will aggressively seek to ensure that you obtain the maximum amount of economic compensation.
Catastrophic injuries are injuries which leave a person with permanent disabilities. People can suffer catastrophic injuries in a variety of ways, but car crashes, bus accidents, pedestrian accidents, and motorcycles accidents are by far the most common. This is why it is so vital to always wear your seat belt if you are in a car; a helmet if you are riding a motorcycle; and to look both ways and be vigilant when crossing the street as a pedestrian. When a catastrophic injury occurs, many people have difficulty accepting that they will never be the same as they were before the injury and they will never be able to make a full recovery – no matter how hard they try.
At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we understand what you are going through and we are here to help. When you give us the opportunity to hold wrongdoers responsible for what they have done to you, we will engage in a relentless onslaught to ensure that we not only put you in a position to receive the maximum amount of compensation possible, but to ensure that you obtain justice.
Few injuries are as devastating as burn injuries. Not only are they excruciatingly painful, but burns can cause disfigurement, organ failure, and even death. Those who are fortunate enough to survive a serious burn injury must not only get through an extensive period of recovery, but they necessarily will endure multiple surgeries and other painful procedures during the course of rehabilitation.
If you or a loved one has suffered a severe burn injury, you must contact a Fairfax personal injury lawyer with the knowledge and experience to not only handle the legal aspects of your case, but to help you face the physical and emotional challenges which accompany almost every severe burn injury. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we understand the complex legal and medical issues associated with burn injury cases and we are supremely skilled at presenting these complex issues to a jury in plain-English.
When contamination or chemical pollution result in death, cancer, brain damage, or other serious injuries, those who have been victimized must immediately contact a Fairfax personal injury lawyer with the knowledge and experience to hold the wrongdoers who caused the pollution responsible for their improper and harmful conduct.
At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we have the skill and knowhow to successfully and aggressively try toxic tort cases. When we get this opportunity, we handle each and every aspect of the case from its initial filing, to interviewing witnesses, to hiring medical and scientific experts, to conducting depositions, to filing motion after motion after motion in order to overwhelm the opposing party’s counsel and has out all the potential legal and evidentiary arguments we may have.
Travelling by train is definitely safer than driving, but accidents can and do happen. When train accidents do happen, the injuries people suffer are devastating. When a person’s injury in a train accident was fatal, the victim’s family may seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. In wrongful death cases, the family can receive economic damages for lost wages, medical bills, loss of consortium, loss of parental guidance, funeral costs, and pain and suffering.
If you or a loved one have suffered a serious injury in a train accident, contact the Law Offices of Randall Sousa today for a free consultation with a Fairfax personal injury lawyer. We will openly and frankly discuss the facts of the case and we will let you know whether you may have the grounds to file a lawsuit.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider causes a patient injury. The problem is that many attorneys lack the resources and intelligence to successfully prosecute these claims, and these doctors are able to weasel their way out of compensating the patient for the injuries that they negligently caused. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we handle ALL aspects of medical malpractice cases including procuring and reviewing your medical records, obtaining witness statements, hiring expert witnesses and consultants to testify on your behalf, and aggressively pursuing the maximum limit of economic recovery in court.
The damages awarded from a wrongful death lawsuit are for the loss of love, care, and financial support of the person who passed away in the tragic accident. The sad reality, however, is that there is no fixed value for the loss of love because love truly is unlimited in its value. In order to get this point across, you will need a Fairfax personal injury lawyer who is able to personalize the case by showing just how special the relationship between the family members and the deceased was and, more importantly, why it was so special. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we know that in order to get this point across, we have to show specifics and cannot merely make broad, conclusory statements about the love that was lost. Instead, we document the relationship. We show videos, photographs, love letters, and put family members on the witness stand so that they can explain in their own words just how devastating the loss of their family member’s love was to each of them.
Riding a bike is not only convenient and affordable, but it is also are a great form of exercise. However, riding a bike can result in serious injury if a negligent or reckless driver hits the bicyclist. The injuries the bike rider suffers will not only cause severe physical pain, but the rider may be forced to miss work, pay expensive medical bills, and deal with permanent injuries which significantly impact or decrease their quality of life – this includes injuries which prevent them from ever riding a bicycle again. In cases where the bicyclist’s injuries prove fatal, the accident can destroy entire families – both emotionally and financially. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we aggressively fight to obtain payment for not just our clients’ current and future medical expenses, but for their lost wages, pain, and suffering as well. Our fight is to help you get your life back on track after suffering a bicycle accident, and, as always, if we don’t win, you don’t pay.
Spinal Cord Injuries
When someone has been paralyzed by spinal cord injury, they are going to need a Fairfax personal injury lawyer with a comprehensive knowledge of how to obtain proper compensation for clients who face unique and lifelong injuries. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we understand how to effectively and convincingly explain our clients’ present and future medical and financial needs to a jury.
From the moment we are hired, we launch full speed into assembling a team of legal and medical experts who are able to engage in a full analysis of you or your loved one’s condition and persuasively articulate all the technical and scientific issues of liability and damages which will arise in your case. Make no mistake about it: spinal cord injuries are extremely complicated. That is why when we take on a spinal cord injury case, we will consult with the very best personal injury experts in healthcare, medicine, and life care planning so that we can ensure our clients not only receive full compensation, but the very best nursing care, medical equipment, and assistive technology that money can buy.
Premises liability cases involve situations where a person has been injured on business, public, or private property. One of the most common landowner defenses I have seen is when a landowner disclaims any fault because they transferred possession of property to a tenant or “agent” who is leasing the property. Whenever we take on a premises liability case, we always engage in a comprehensive investigation to determine who had access to the property and what these agents may have known.
During our investigation, we utilize the tools of discovery – such as depositions – to grill these agents and question them until we fully understand their involvement and what they knew about the property. When they claim to be at the property on a regular basis, but that they had no knowledge of any dangerous conditions, these sorts of answers don’t make sense, and the jury tends to view these witnesses as liars – which is exactly the outcome your Fairfax personal injury lawyer is looking for.
People who have suffered an injury in a bus accident may have a hard time proving liability. Transportation authorities throughout Virginia have attorneys on retainer full time working incessantly to make sure that you get nothing. But that is why you are going to want the best, most aggressive Fairfax personal injury lawyer you can find. When a client comes to us after having suffered an injury in a bus accident, we immediately begin to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the accident by taking photographs of the accident scene, reviewing police reports, interviewing witnesses, and utilizing the mechanisms of discovery.
Our firm also handles every aspect of the lawsuit including filing the lawsuit, representing victims during trial, and engaging in settlement, mediation, or arbitration if necessary. And, of course, we will always pursue the maximum amount of compensation for our clients. At our office, you will find a Fairfax personal injury lawyer with the knowledge and skill to combat the bus companies’ vast resources.
We live in a consumer driven culture, and at the end of the day, the companies who manufacture, distribute, and retail these consumer items have a duty to ensure that these products not only function properly, but perform safely as well. When a company falls short of these obligations, and a person is somehow injured, that is when the law of product liability kicks in.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of a defective product, see our product liability page or contact our to speak with a Fairfax personal injury lawyer who can provide you more information on how the laws of product liability might apply in your case. Our office handles all manner of product liability cases ranging from injuries caused by everyday household goods, to the most sophisticated, technologically advanced scientific and medical instruments.
Electric Shock Injuries
Electrocutions are often the result of negligence or labor law violations on construction work sites. Consequently, construction workers have the highest risk of experiencing these types of injuries. However, construction workers are not alone in their risk of being electrocuted. Indeed, even regular people can be electrocuted at home as a result of faulty electrical outlets and defective electrical appliances.
If you have suffered an electric shock-related injury, contact our office today to speak with a Fairfax personal injury lawyer to find out whether negligence may have been the cause of your injuries. At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we take no greater pleasure than when we are able to uncover the truth about what caused our client injury and to hold those who caused the injury responsible for their wrongful and negligent actions.
Insurance Bad Faith
When something bad happens to you or a family member, most people believe that they can turn to their insurance company for help. They believe that their insurance company is required to act fairly and in good faith by never putting their own interests before the interests of their policyholders. But as a Fairfax personal injury lawyer, I can tell you that it is not uncommon for insurance companies to fall short of these requirements.
While not every denial of coverage is bad faith, if you think your insurance company has acted in bad faith, they probably have. If you feel like something is off or your insurance company is not treating you fairly, do not hesitate to call us to speak with a Fairfax personal injury lawyer who will answer your questions and conduct a free consultation to determine whether you have grounds for a case.
FAIRFAX PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER
Every year, thousands of people are injured as a result of the intentional or negligent actions of others. Whether the injury occurs at your job, the grocery store, while driving, at home, or at a hospital, many of these injuries could have been avoided had someone else taken the proper steps to ensure your safety and the safety of others. Its as simple at that. But instead of keeping things simple, many lawyers tend to use extravagant metaphors to compare litigation to a game of chess or to a drawn-out battle of war, these clichés are not only obnoxious, but they unnecessarily complicate the bottom line.
When deciding on which Fairfax personal injury lawyer you will want to hire, there are a number of questions you will want to ask. Can the attorney reach a quick and favorable settlement? Can they refer me to a reputable doctor? Can they help me with mounting medical costs and reduced income? At the Law Offices of Randall Sousa, we are here to help you solve these problems while also holding wrongdoers responsible to the fullest extent of the law.
If there is one difficulty in the practice of personal injury law, it generally is determining the cause of a person’s injuries when the cause of those injuries might not be so obvious. Yet, this is precisely why it is so important that you find an aggressive, compassionate, and exceptionally skilled Fairfax personal injury lawyer who will leave no stone unturned when investigating the cause of your injuries.
