Virginia Beach Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal injury law is a broad area whose basic purpose is to help people who have been injured due to someone else's fault. It is rarely a matter of criminal prosecution, unless the other party intended to harm you. Rather, people and companies are required to take care, in whatever they are doing, not to injure others accidentally. Depending on their culpability, and the extent of your injuries, a court or jury may make them pay for the damages.
Filing a Personal Injury Claim
At Valverde & Rowell, P.C., we will listen to what happened to you and investigate the circumstances of your claim as we pursue money damages on your behalf. We will contact the party at fault, or their insurance company, and negotiate a settlement. Note however, that we always prepare for our cases for trial as that puts us in the best negotiating position.

Wrongful Death Cases
Sadly, many families lose a loved one due to the carelessness of another. In these cases, we pursue a "wrongful death" action on their behalf. Compensation gained from a wrongful death suit can help with the difficult adjustment your family must make because of lost income, the loss of services your loved one provided, as well as the pain and loss of companionship and parental direction.
