What Keeps Us Up at Night

by Cary Graham | May 22nd, 2017

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we help a lot of folks in Norfolk get the compensation they deserve after serious car accidents. It’s a good feeling knowing that the people who come through our doors get our very best and often walk out again in a much better place. What keeps us up at night are the thousands of injured folks in Virginia who are trying to deal with the insurance company on their own, without the help of an experienced car accident attorney.

In our experience, accident victims who go it alone will receive significantly less compensation for their injuries, which can put their families in a real financial crisis.

The good news is there may still be time to do it right. Unless you’ve signed a settlement agreement from the insurance company, we still may be able to pull you and your family out of this situation. But you have to call us immediately. Our experienced Norfolk car accident attorneys will fully investigate your accident and deal with the insurance company on your behalf to get you maximum compensation for your injuries. Don’t risk your financial future by going it alone. Contact us today.

The Consequences of Medical Malpractice

by Cary Graham | May 15th, 2017

Medical challenges can impact every aspect of your life. When you’re not well or injured, the simplest tasks become more complex while pain is always present. We look to medical professionals to alleviate that pain and suffering through sound medical advice and treatment, and often that’s exactly what we get. But unfortunately, that’s not the case for every patient in Norfolk.

Medical professionals are trained to first do no harm. When they fail to ensure an acceptable level of care, the consequences can be dire. If you’ve been injured or experienced medical complications due to medical malpractice, you know well what those consequences look like. What you might not know is the financial impact their mistakes may have on your future.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we handle medical malpractice cases because we know just how much medical negligence can cost a family. You’re going to require additional medical treatment, perhaps even surgery. When it’s all said and done, you may end up with tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses you shouldn’t be responsible for.

If you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, call us today for a free consultation. Our experienced Norfolk medical malpractice lawyers will work to uncover the truth about your condition and fight to get you every dollar in compensation you deserve. There’s no cost or obligation for getting answers to your questions, so contact us today.

The Ultimate Theft

by Cary Graham | May 8th, 2017

People get robbed every single day. Whether your car is broken into or you’ve been the victim of a home invasion, there’s nothing that compares to the vulnerable feeling when someone has taken something that belongs to you. A wrongful death can rip a family and a community apart. It’s the ultimate theft that leaves you and your family feeling empty and in search of answers.

Unfortunately, the wrongful death attorneys at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers can’t bring your family member back, nor can we with any conviction tell you that it’s all going to be okay, because it’s not. You’ve suffered a traumatic loss, and things are never going to be the same.

However, families don’t call us to make everything okay. They call us because they know we will fight on their behalf to get them justice. The financial impact of your loved one’s death could be substantial. Beyond funeral and other expenses, you’re going to need compensation for the financial potential your loved one can no longer provide. That could be a significant amount when considering how many years were taken from them, and we’re ready to help you secure every dollar for your family’s future.

If you’ve lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, the wrongful death attorneys at Lowell Stanley want to help. Give us a call today for a free, no obligation consultation. We’ll fight to get you the justice your loved one deserves. Contact us today.

Car Accidents Have a Story to Tell

by Cary Graham | May 1st, 2017

After a crash that wasn’t your fault, the accident scene has a story to tell, and it has two sides–your’s and the at-fault driver’s. Which side do you want on the record when settling your injury claim? That question has an obvious answer, but it needs to be asked nevertheless. If you decide to go through the injury claim process without an experienced Norfolk car accident lawyer by your side, you may end up paying for the mistakes of others. Do you think you can prove what really happened on the road that day? Better yet, do you think you could prove it in a court of law?

Securing a personal injury lawyer to help with you injury claim is all about minimizing risk. The simple reality is you’re in no shape to put up the kind of fight necessary to get what you deserve. An experienced Norfolk car accident attorney and investigative team know how to reach beyond the accident report and uncover the truth for all to see. That’s an important part of maximizing your injury claim, which is why you should give us a call immediately if you’ve been injured.

A car accident attorney from Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers can offer free, no obligation consultations to every injury victim in Norfolk. Why? Because we know how important it is to your family’s future that you have the legal help you need from day one. Call us today for your free consultation, and let us help you start putting your life back together.

Things to Consider After a Motorcycle Accident

by Cary Graham | April 24th, 2017

The open road is always calling to a motorcycle enthusiast. It could be the dead of winter, and the only thing on the mind of a dedicated rider is turning that engine over and hitting the road. Virginia has some of the best riding in the country, which is why so many folks in Norfolk own motorcycles. Unfortunately, many drivers in our community don’t know how to properly share the road with riders, leading to significant injuries and even death.

If you’re reading this blog after a serious motorcycle accident, there are a few things you should consider right now. First of all, are your rights as an accident victim protected? If you don’t have an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on your side, they may not be. Second, are you in a position to get the most money for your injury claim? The at-fault driver’s insurance company may try to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. An experienced Norfolk motorcycle wreck attorney will fight the insurance company for every dollar you deserve.

Lastly, are you prepared to pay for someone else’s mistake? If you try to deal with the insurance company on your own, you may do just that. Every dollar you don’t secure from the insurance company is another dollar you give to the person who hit you. You’re essentially saying, “You caused the accident, but I’m going to pay for it.”

Don’t do it.

Call an experienced Norfolk motorcycle accident attorney today for a free consultation. We’re ready to fight for you, so contact us today.

Workplace Accident? Escape the Financial Nightmare

by Cary Graham | April 17th, 2017

We have some hardworking folks in Norfolk. It’s ingrained in our culture to work hard and earn every penny on our paycheck. Our families depend on those paychecks, and if we miss just one, it can quickly leave us in a financial nightmare. That’s why an on-the-job injury can turn any family upside down. If you’re injured, you can’t work. If you can’t work, you won’t get paid. If you don’t get paid, you may struggle to put food on the table and keep a roof over your head.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we believe no Norfolk family should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from, but if you’ve been injured on the job, that could soon become your reality. You might think that workers’ compensation would pay your medical expenses and help provide for your family while you recover, but that’s not always the case. In reality, injured workers take far less than they deserve every day from workers’ comp insurance companies, leaving their families financially compromised.

Thankfully, there’s a better way. If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, call our experienced Norfolk workers’ comp lawyers today for a free consultation. We’ll review your case at no obligation to you and fight to get you the maximum benefits possible. Your family’s future may depend on what you do next. Contact us today.

Car Accident? It’s Time to Take a Stand

by Cary Graham | April 10th, 2017

For those lucky enough to survive a serious car accident, a sense of “what might have happened?” always lingers. Would I have survived if they had been going 5 mph faster? What if I hadn’t braked when I did? Could I have lost so much more? These are frightening thoughts, especially considering the injuries you did sustain. Make no mistake, you’ve survived a life-threatening accident, and the person who caused it could have taken your life or the lives of those in your vehicle.

That’s an important point to remember when considering whether or not you should file a personal injury lawsuit for your injuries. By doing so, you’re taking a stand for yourself, your family, and other drivers on the road who could be injured or killed next time by the same driver. It needs to be stated loud and clear that driving while distracted, driving aggressively, or under the influence is not welcome in Norfolk. You do that by calling an experienced lawyer to defend your rights, and that’s exactly what we do at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers.

If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, call an experienced Norfolk car accident attorney today. We’ll hold the responsible party accountable for their carelessness and fight to get you maximum compensation for your injuries. You can’t afford to go this alone. Contact us today.

The Many Forms of Nursing Home Abuse

by Cary Graham | April 3rd, 2017

Taking care of aging loved ones isn’t easy, especially if you’ve never been a caretaker. It can require around-the-clock care–something you and your family simply can’t provide. That level of care is only available from professionals. That’s why you and your family made the decision to find the best nursing home facility your aging loved one could afford, and it was the right decision. Unfortunately, not every facility lives up to the promises it makes.

Nursing home abuse and neglect come in many forms. As a family member, it’s important that you are aware of the signs that nursing home abuse or neglect exist, so that you can protect your loved one from harm. Common signs include:

  • Pale complexion
  • Untreated bedsores, bruises, or cuts
  • Excessive weight loss
  • Fleas or lice in the resident’s room
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Changes to medications
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Torn clothing or missing personal items

If your aging loved one shows any of these signs, they may be the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect. Call an experienced Norfolk nursing home abuse lawyer today to learn about your loved one’s rights. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we’ll fully investigate the extent of the abuse and hold the responsible facility accountable. Act immediately to ensure your loved one’s safety. Contact us today.

Medical Professionals Prepare for Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

by Cary Graham | March 27th, 2017

Most medical professionals in Virginia work extremely hard. It’s not uncommon for nurses and doctors to have double shifts, late nights, and dozens of patients under their supervision at any time. The opportunity to make a mistake is always present, which is why many medical professionals and organizations have medical malpractice insurance. They know that there’s a chance a decision or action they take could cause harm to the patient, so they prepare themselves for that eventuality.

As a patient who has suffered due to medical negligence and/or malpractice, you know just how hard it can be to decide whether or not to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. You want justice for what you’ve been through, but you’re apprehensive about suing. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we understand that concern, which is why we offer every medical malpractice victim in Norfolk a free consultation. Our experienced Virginia medical malpractice attorneys can help you understand your rights and how much your injuries might end up costing you.

If you or someone you love suffered due to medical malpractice, give us a call for your free, no obligation consultation. We’ll fully investigate the cause of your injuries and fight to get you compensation for additional medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. You don’t have to go through this alone. Contact us today.

Injured? 3 Questions to Ask Yourself

by Cary Graham | March 20th, 2017

If you’ve been injured, you’re probably wondering whether or not you have a personal injury case. You’re not alone. The majority of the calls we receive from accident victims are about finding an answer to that very question. Although a free consultation from Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers is a simple way to find out if you have a case, you can ask yourself 3 questions before you make the call to determine if a lawyer might be able to help:

Was the accident caused by someone else’s negligence? Whether you were involved in a car crash or a slip and fall incident, the person or organization at fault should be responsible for your injuries. If someone other than yourself caused your accident, you may have a personal injury claim.

Were you injured? Seems fundamental, but it’s an important component to any personal injury case. To have a personal injury claim, you need to have sustained injuries due to your accident. If you did, you may have a personal injury claim.

Do you expect to incur expenses due to your injuries? To simplify a complex process, personal injury claims are essentially about recovering compensation for expenses or hardships you incur due to your injuries. From medical expenses to lost wages, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries.

If you answered “yes” to all of the above questions, chances are you have a personal injury claim and should consult with a personal injury attorney right now. Call today for your free consultation. Our law firm wants to review your case for free and fight to get you every dollar you deserve.
