Norfolk in recent years has had more than its fair share of alcohol-related deaths on our roads. Drinking and driving is never justified, even if you make it safely to your destination, as it can lead you to believe that buzzed driving is harmless. It’s not, and if you continue to do so, it’s only a matter of time before you hurt yourself or someone else. However, alcohol isn’t the only type of inebriation that can kill on the roads.
According to a recent Auto Insurance Center, there were more than 900 fatalities in 2014 that involved marijuana-use. In fact, vehicular deaths involving marijuana were 3 times more common than any other illegal substance. These statistics are a reminder that any type of inebriation and driving can be a deadly mix, and we won’t stand for it here in Norfolk.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we hold impaired drivers accountable for the injuries they cause. If you’ve been injured, call our Norfolk car accident attorneys today for a free consultation. We’ll fully investigate the negligent driver that caused your accident and fight to get you maximum compensation for your injuries. Don’t wait to get the help you need. Give us a call today.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we don’t fault any business for trying to make a profit. What we can’t stand is when a business puts profits ahead of people. As personal injury lawyers, we deal with insurance companies that try to pay accident victims less than they deserve for their injuries, all in the name of profits. Last year alone, those profits were in the billions of dollars. Luckily, we know how to beat the insurance company, and you can help.
You might think your injury claim is too minor or insignificant to bother calling a lawyer, but these assumptions can damage your ability to file a claim if your injuries get worse. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should at the very least consult with a lawyer, even if you don’t end up hiring one. Despite what an insurance adjuster may tell you, there’s really no way to know how much this accident is going to cost you right away. What seems like a simple injury could require a significant amount of follow-up care, which is going to cost money. If you settle with the insurance company too early for too little, you’re going to be left holding those medical bills.
The truth is there’s no reason not to call a lawyer after an accident. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we offer free consultations to every accident victim who calls. If you do become a client, we’ll give you our No Fee Guarantee, which means you won’t pay us anything unless we win your case. That means no risk to you. Don’t wait to get the help you need. Call our Norfolk car accident attorneys today.

Every personal injury case requires a great deal of paperwork. As your attorney, we’ll handle the majority of this paperwork on your behalf, so all you have to worry about is your recovery. You might be surprised to learn that the insurance company has mountains of paperwork to process on your behalf as well. In fact, they have a whole file on your injury claim. Here’s the difference. To them, you’re just a number on paper.
You start as an accident report number. Then you become a claim number. Then, if they get their way, you end up as a small settlement number. Their job is to minimize the impact your claim has on their bottom line rather than minimize the impact the accident has on you. It’s simple arithmetic. The less money they pay you for your car accident, the more money they can add to their billion-dollar profits.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our job is to make the insurance company pay what an accident victim deserves, not what’s best for their balance sheet. That job isn’t done until you’ve received the maximum compensation possible for your injuries, so you can move forward with confidence knowing your financial situation is secure. If you’ve been injured, call our Norfolk car accident attorneys for a free consultation. You can’t afford to go it alone, so call today.

Auto accidents happen every day in Roanoke, though only a fraction of accident victims hire a lawyer to represent them in their injury claim. That shouldn’t be surprising. A lot of folks feel like they don’t need a lawyer because their injuries aren’t severe, think it’s too much of hassle, or simply don’t know which firm to call, so they call no one.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we don’t believe every accident victim should hire a lawyer. However, we do believe every accident victim should call one. We get thousands of calls every year, many of which are accident victims simply seeking advice on what to do next. We’re always happy to field their questions for free, because we know information is a vital component in making the right decision. Often after hearing the specifics of their situation, we tell them they actually don’t need a lawyer, giving them confidence to take the next steps in the process—confidence they wouldn’t have had if they hadn’t consulted with a lawyer first.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, call our Roanoke car accident attorneys for a free consultation. There’s no obligation and it’s absolutely free. Don’t risk making a mistake that could negatively impact your family’s future. Call us today.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we love making lists. There’s just nothing like writing out everything you have to do and systematically knocking them out. Every time you cross an item off, it’s a small victory. Insurance companies love lists too, but instead of things they need to do, their lists consist of names, and if you’ve been in an accident, you better believe your name is already on there.
We’ve mentioned before on this blog that insurance companies can process more than 35,000 claims a day, but that statement seems a little cold and isn’t completely accurate, so let’s restate it a different way. Insurance companies can process more than 35,000 people a day.
Take Bill who was rear-ended by a distracted driver. Bill is going to have serious neck problems for the next several years, and will eventually need surgery to relieve the pain. All told, his medical bills are going to be over $100,000. It’s in the insurance company’s best interests to cross Bill off their list as quickly as possible to avoid paying for all his medical treatment, and they might if Bill doesn’t get a lawyer on his side.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we know how the big insurance companies operate. We don’t let them cross our clients off their lists until they’ve paid them every penny they deserve for their injuries. If you’ve been injured, call our experienced Norfolk car accident attorneys today for a free consultation and put our experience to work for you.

We have years of experience fighting on behalf of accident victims who weren’t willing to lie down and let the insurance company roll all over them. We know how to deal with the insurance company and will fight until they do the right thing and pay you what you deserve for your injuries.

We’ve handled hundreds of cases over the last 30 years and dealt with pretty much every car insurance company out there. We’re still amazed at some of the tactics they use to pay accident victims less than they deserve, but we’re never surprised. The insurance companies are in this business to make money. They do that by collecting more premiums than they pay out claims. It’s simple arithmetic. If Paul pays $10,000 in premiums over the life of the policy and they only pay out $1,000 for his claims, they can pocket the other $9,000.
Car insurance is a billion-dollar industry, so they’ve obviously mastered that equation. Our job at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers is to change the math by adding a new variable to the equation: an experienced Norfolk car accident attorney. Over the past 30 years, we’ve stood up to the insurance companies to get maximum compensation for our clients. If the insurance company doesn’t want to play fair, we’re not afraid to come down hard on them. Why do you think they call Lowell Stanley “The Hammer?”
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, give us a call today for a free consultation. We’ll get started on your case immediately and do everything within our power to get you full compensation for your injuries. Don’t try to take on the insurance company alone. Call us today.

The telephone revolutionized communication. Before Alexander Graham Bell’s tinkering turned into a working prototype, communication was accomplished by letter, telegraph, or good old fashion face-to-face conversation. Since then, there have been some pretty significant phone calls. From presidents informing parents their sons and daughters are coming home to peace talks across oceans, the telephone has made it possible to inform and unite people instantly at any time.
Each of us can think of a phone call or two that were pivotal in our lives–some heartbreaking, some joyful. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, one upcoming phone call can impact the rest of your life more than any before. The insurance company may be calling with a settlement offer soon. Although they seem nice and understanding on the phone, their main objective is to get you to take as little money as possible for your injuries. It’s nothing personal. They’re just trying to make a profit. But if you take it, it’ll become real personal to you, real quick.
There’s no way to know how much this accident is going to cost you at this point, so how can you know if what they’re offering will be enough? The answer is you can’t. That’s why you should never take the insurance company’s first offer. When they call, do three things: Tell them you’re not signing anything, hang up, and call us.
Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers knows how to deal with the insurance company, and we’ll work to get you what you truly deserve. Don’t go it alone. Make the call that could change your life today.

We’ve been helping accident victims in Norfolk for more than 30 years. In that time, we’ve fought for the rights of hundreds of injury victims, whether at the negotiating table or in the courtroom. When it comes down to it, experience is worth more than any promise you might hear from other law firms. In fact, you’ll never hear us promise you anything. We don’t have to. Our track record speaks for itself.
However, we will say this. The law firm you choose to handle your injury claim matters. If you’ve been injured, the one thing standing between you and a fair settlement is the insurance company. Those insurance companies handle thousands of injury claims like yours every day, many of which involve a personal injury lawyer. They keep track of which lawyers settle cheap and which ones push back.
You want a lawyer on your side with a reputation for fighting hard on behalf of their clients; someone that’s not afraid to take the insurance company to court if they won’t play fair.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we stand up to the insurance companies every day. They know if they try to push us, we’ll push back. That’s what our clients have come to expect from us, and that’s what they get. If you’ve been injured, call our Norfolk car accident attorneys today for a free consultation. Your next move matters. Make the right one.
