Automobile Accidents

It’s shocking to be in a car accident. As you are going about daily life–in an instant–you are in a traumatic situation with loud noise, jolts, pain and chaos.

If the accident was due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness–you may be entitled to monetary damages. This is especially important if you are facing serious injuries. It may mean months, even years, of surgeries, physical therapy and other significant medical expenses. Your family’s livelihood can be severely impacted. Sobering questions arise:

  • Am I ever going to get better?
  • When can I return to work?
  • Where will the money come from to pay bills?
  • Can I put groceries on the table this month?
  • Will I be able to pay the college tuition next semester?

 If you are in that situation, reach out to us. We will carefully evaluate your case, assessing all of the available data and records. This is an important step because our philosophy is quality over quantity. We only take on cases that we believe have good chances of success in holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence.

Our 30 years of practicing personal injury litigation includes some of the largest verdicts and settlements in Virginia. It also includes many more smaller cases, where $25,000, $100,000 and $500,000 help the injured parties to become whole again.

What you can count on

Nichols Zauzig has made standing up to the bullying tactics of insurers a priority. We have years of experience in helping injured Virginians obtain fair and decent settlements from insurance companies, as well as experience taking cases all the way to trial. Take a look at our Selected Case Results for examples.

We routinely confer with some of the foremost medical experts in the country and use their testimony to help make the injuries of our clients as clear as possible to insurers, arbitrators, and juries. When the injury involves a Traumatic Brain Injury, this becomes especially important. Find our more about our expertise in Traumatic Brain Injury.

Why experience and reputation matters

Nichols Zauzig has been helping bring hope to families like yours for more than 30 years. Take a look at our attorneys’ experience and background, our case studies and testimonials from former clients. When attorneys see the Nichols Zauzig team across the table, or in the courtroom, they know they are facing one of the most qualified litigation teams in Virginia. Judges recognize it as well. We earn that reputation for every case, with knowledge, skill and just plain hard work.

Get help now

If you or a loved one has suffered serous injuries from an automobile accident,  contact our offices for a free legal consultation today. We work on a contingent basis, meaning if we take your case and you do not recover compensation, we do not charge a fee for our services, although–for any case like this in Virginia–you may be responsible for court costs.  Not every case requires an attorney, and, if that’s what we determine your situation to be, we’ll tell you in the consultation.

You may reach us by calling 703-492-4200 or sending us an email. We look forward to talking with you.
