WHAT KIND OF RENTAL CAR AM I ENTITLED TO?

ADVOCATING FOR YOU INSIDE & OUTSIDE OF THE COURTROOM

When you’ve been injured due to someone else's negligence, you deserve just compensation.

Getting injured in an accident can often be an overwhelming and emotional experience. Unsurprisingly, it can also take a significant financial toll on your life. When that injury is caused by someone else at no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Schilling & Esposito have more than 30 years of experience guiding clients through a wide range of personal injury cases.

Car accidents, including drunk drivers, rear-end and head-on collisions, and accidents caused by reckless, distracted, or drowsy drivers can take a heavy toll. Let your attorneys help you seek compensation for not only your medical bills but also the damage to your vehicle. They also have extensive experience with semi-truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and crosswalk accidents.

Not all injuries occur on the road, however. Premises liability cases, such as slip-and-falls, can cause long term damage to your spine. Other catastrophic incidents like spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or explosion injuries can prove costly, so it’s important to work with a skilled attorney in Richmond and Central, Virginia that can help you seek compensation that could cover these expenses that pile up very quickly.

Aside from straight-forward injuries, you may have a personal injury case if you or a loved one has suffered from medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, or wrongful death. If you were injured at work, we can help you file a workers’ compensation claim. If you or someone you know lives in Richmond and Central, Virginia, and has been injured in an accident, call Schilling & Esposito today to schedule a case consultation.
