Washington D.C. Car Accident & Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal-Injury-Attorney-Fernando-Lopez

Named after the first President of the United States, Washington D.C. is the capital of our nation and serves as the heart of the American government. In addition to being a political epicenter, Washington D.C. is also a booming metropolitan area boasting culture, dining, business, and a diverse population. Over 700,000 residents call D.C. home, including more than 11% of the population identifying as Hispanic or Latino.

As Washington D.C. continues to grow with new residents and increases in tourism, so does the risk of D.C. residents experiencing personal injury accidents. For those victims, one of the keys to getting proper compensation is finding a reputable and experienced personal injury attorney. For D.C.’s Hispanic and Latino residents, nothing is more important than having an experienced attorney that understands the unique needs of the area’s diverse population and provides services in both Spanish and English. The Lopez Law Group, also known to our Spanish-speaking clients as El Abogado Luchador, is here for Washington D.C.’s Hispanic and Latino residents who need assistance after experiencing a car accident injury or other personal injury requiring legal assistance.

Washington D.C. Personal Injury Accidents

Personal injury is defined as cases that cause harm and losses to an individual due to the negligence or unreasonable conduct of another party. Called tort cases, personal injury accidents can include car crashes, medical malpractice, injuries caused by defective products, falls, and more. 

In D.C., the city’s growth and popularity make it more likely that residents and tourists could experience a personal injury. In addition, Washington D.C.’s status as a district that is not a part of any US state means victims and their legal representation must have in-depth knowledge of the district’s unique set of laws and regulations regarding personal injury. 

For example, Washington D.C. is known for its strict contributory negligence laws. In D.C., if the victim is found to be at all contributory to their accident, they are immediately barred from receiving any damages in association with that accident. An example of contributory negligence impacting a case would be a driver who was injured in an 18-wheeler accident while they were going slightly over the speed limit. Even if the victim was found to be only 5% responsible for the accident due to their increased speed, there’s a chance they could be awarded nothing due to their contributory negligence. What this means is that victims in D.C. need expert legal professionals who can navigate these strict laws to ensure their clients are compensated.

Although more difficult, settlements in relation to personal injury accidents are not impossible in Washington D.C. In fact, according to data provided by D.C. courts, millions of dollars were paid out to victims of personal injury in 2019. It’s important for residents to understand how the laws that surround personal injury accidents in D.C. can affect settlements so they can get the representation and compensation they deserve. 

If you’ve experienced personal injury in the D.C. area, you need an experienced and reliable D.C. personal injury lawyer on your side.

The car accident I had with my 5 year old daughter was one of the most horrific moments and experiences of my life. Fortunately, she was not injured but I had some back issues. I was living in McAllen at the time, but it was actually another attorney that recommend me to Mr. Lopez. Unlike other Attorneys or law groups, Mr. Lopez is more hands on when it came to taking care of my back issues. . His paralegals and secretaries Veronica and Giselle were always helpful. I never felt like I was bothering them and I always had very prompt if not immediate responses. My friend told me that it would take a long time to settle with an insurance company, but Mr. Lopez and his team were able to get money in my pocket within months. My car was completely fixed and they helped with a rental car as well. I was able to go to rehab, pain doctors and chiropractors until I felt better. This group and Mr, Lopez personally, were truly concerned with my well-being , health and compensation. I have recommended Mr. Lopez to all of my friends and family. They have all been grateful for my recommendations. I highly recommend Mr. Lopez as his office is smaller yet as strong or stronger as law offices that are located in San Antonio and Dallas

After doing a lot of research on attorneys in the area of Hidalgo County I chose The Lopez law firm. This was the first time I needed to consult any attorney. When I first consulted with Mr. Lopez and his team I never imagine my case would run only for one year. I am glad I chose Mr. Lopez as my attorney. He fought hard for my case. He was always very willing to meet my needs. At the end my case was won. If I ever need from them again I know they will be eager to help. Thank you Mr. Lopez and the Lopez law firm.
