Legal Representation For Personal Injury Claims

After suffering significant injuries in a car crash or other accident, most people face similar fears and questions: How much will the medical care cost? Will there be long-term expenses? What if I can no longer perform my job because of the injuries? If you have been in a serious accident, it is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side.

Atkinson Law ∙ I Make Your Problems My Problems

As the founding attorney of Atkinson Law in Norfolk, Virginia, I represent clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims caused by accidents involving:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: I represent clients injured in car accidents, moped, scooter and motorcycle accidents, truck accidents and pedestrian accidents.
  • Dog bites and attacks: As an owner and trainer of protection dogs, I have unique insight into the breeds that are more intense and the psychological/behavioral factors that lead to dog bites. Dog ownership is a great endeavor, but irresponsible and unknowledgeable dog owners can create dangerous situations. The catastrophic physical and emotional scars that result from a dog bite can last a lifetime, especially for children.
  • Infant and child injuries: I fight for maximum compensation for injured children and their parents. If an insurance company is pursuing a compromise settlement or has obtained a court-approved settlement, contact me for aggressive representation.
  • Police misconduct: If a police officer has abused his or her position of power and violated your rights or injured you, I will fight to protect your rights.
  • Medical malpractice: If a doctor, surgeon, nurse, pharmacist or other professional in the health care industry acted negligently, resulting in illness or injury to you or a loved one, I can bring a medical malpractice claim to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
  • Nursing home abuse/negligence: I represent elderly clients who have suffered abuse, negligence and exploitation. If you or an elderly parent has been hurt in this way, I can help.

I can also represent you if you have lost a loved one in an accident. By bringing a wrongful death claim, I can help you recover damages for loss of income, medical expenses before death, burial costs, funeral costs and other damages.


Obtaining Compensation For You

After our initial consultation, I will start gathering all the information and documents needed to move your case forward. If no reasonable offer comes from the insurance company, I will file a lawsuit quickly and begin preparing for trial.

Every insurance agent’s dream is to work with an accident victim who is not represented by an attorney. I know how insurance companies defend against personal injury claims. Let me negotiate with them; you just focus on recovering. Of course, if they are not willing to make an acceptable offer, I will take the matter to court and fight for your rights in litigation.
