"I've Been in a Car Accident"

If You've Been Injured in Washington, D.C., You Need Us

Slocumb Law Firm handles all types of car accident cases, from rear-end crashes near the Lincoln Memorial to fatal accidents on the Beltway (I-495). Anyone who lives around the D.C. area knows how congested the highways can get. Accidents big and small are reported every day. People who are seriously injured often need help recovering compensation to pay for their medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages.

While not every accident requires taking legal action, many car wrecks in the nation's capital can lead to complicated insurance claims. The adjuster may try to play hardball and offer an unreasonably low settlement. You may even get blamed for the car crash when you did nothing wrong.

Do I Need an Attorney if I'm Injured?

In cases involving injury, it's always wise to consult with an experienced attorney. The legal professionals at Slocumb Law Firm have years of experience handling a variety of accident cases. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of clients. While a minor fender-bender without injury may not call for legal counsel, if you were hurt, sustained major damage to your vehicle or you are involved in a dispute, we urge you to get in touch with us as soon as possible. In Washington, D.C., you have a limited amount of time to initiate legal proceedings. That's why it's important to talk to us now. You may lose your right to pursue compensation and hold the negligent party accountable.

What if a Loved One Dies in an Accident?

You may be entitled to compensation if a family member is killed in a traffic accident. We can help you examine your options, including filing a wrongful death lawsuit. In many cases, the loss of a spouse, a parent or some other loved one can result not only in emotional trauma, but can have a significant long-term financial impact. The loved one who died may have worked hard every day to support your family.

We help clients recover compensation for lost income as well as other damages in a wrongful death case. They may include economic damages such as lost income and the medical and funeral expenses associated with the death.  You also may be entitled to recover "non-economic" damages, including compensation for mental anguish, loss of care and loss of consortium.
