You have plenty of choices when it comes to personal injury lawyers in and around Norfolk, Virginia. This can make choosing the right attorney seem like an overwhelming task. While there are a number of options, it is important to remember that not all personal injury attorneys are capable of offering the same level of experience and dedication, nor are all of them able to prove their skill with a wide range of verdicts and settlements.
The state of Virginia operates under contributory negligence, meaning that even if you are only 1% responsible for an accident and the other party is 99% responsible, your slim share of the blame makes you unable to collect any damages for your losses. Because of this, it is all the more vital that you hire an aggressive and devoted personal injury lawyer who knows how to effectively argue for the other party’s complete liability, pursuing the maximum settlement you are owed for your injuries.
One thing that sets our firm apart from the competition is the fact that our sole focus is on personal injury law. Personal injury attorneys John Cooper and Jim Hurley do not split their attention between several practice areas; instead, they devote their 40+ years of combined experience entirely to the intricacies and complexities of Virginia personal injury law. This specialization enables us to stay on top of all changes in the Virginia Code and Supreme Court cases, using our knowledge and up-to-date familiarity with Virginia law to our clients’ advantage.
A look at our client testimonials page can also help you understand why Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers has been the standout Norfolk personal injury firm for other area residents. We are not a factory firm where clients are seen as a way to increase our own profits. Instead, we view each client like a member of our own family and pride ourselves on supporting them the same way we would one of our own family members in crisis.
Your lawyer will be available to contact 24/7; you will never be left wondering where your case stands. By working closely with you and your family during every stage of your lawsuit, we will provide you with the highest level of personalized service.
You have several choices when it comes to a personal injury attorney, but we believe you deserve nothing less than the best. Our Norfolk personal injury attorneys are prepared to work tirelessly on your behalf, providing constant support and doing everything in our power to ensure you are awarded the maximum settlement you are due.
