Accomplished Personal Injury Law Firm Representing Virginia Plaintiffs
Armentrout Accident & Injury Law has been helping Virginia injury victims for nearly three decades. We represent clients in Harrisonburg and throughout the state who have been injured because of a person or company’s negligence. With extensive legal knowledge and proven courtroom skills, our attorneys provide aggressive representation focused on seeking results in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
After a car crash or other auto accident, it is essential to involve an attorney early on, in order to thoroughly prepare your case. We know the importance of preserving and securing evidence and questioning available witnesses. We will conduct an investigation to uncover the responsible negligent parties, including interviewing the police officers present, photographing the accident scene, and working with medical experts and accident reconstruction specialists. Our thorough approach ensures we have the materials needed for arguing the strongest case in your favor.
When you entrust your medical care to a professional, you do so with the confidence that he or she will follow all state and federal laws, hospital or office policies, and fulfill their oath to do no harm. Unfortunately, healthcare providers are humans, too, and make mistakes, judgment errors, disregard standard operating procedures, cut corners, or even shirk their responsibilities for any number of reasons. This is considered medical malpractice and the results can be severe or deadly. If you were harmed at the hands of a doctor, nurse, or other medical employee, we can help you hold them accountable and compensate you for the pain they have caused you or your loved ones.
Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain safe spaces so that patrons and visitors do not become injured. When they fail to do so, the results can be unpleasant at best and devastating at worst. Broken equipment, exposure to harmful substances, unclean conditions, exposed wiring, inadequate safety warnings, poorly maintained floors and stairs, and other dangerous factors all put people at risk for substantial injury. If you have become injured or ill due to visiting an unsafe property, we can help you file a premises liability claim and collect compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages.
Construction sites are inherently dangerous places, which is why Virginia law mandates strict adherence to a whole host of safety and compliance measures. It is the responsibility of those in charge of these environments to abide by these rules and protect their employees and the general public from preventable danger. When they fail to uphold their obligation, injuries are inevitable. If you have been injured in a construction site accident, we can help you initiate a lawsuit and collect damages to offset your hospital bills, missed paychecks, and other expenses incurred as a result of this unfortunate event.
Sensible pet owners know that it is their responsibility to keep their dogs under control and prevent them from biting or attacking others. Unfortunately, not all owners train their dogs well or keep them from getting loose. Aggressive or unrestrained dogs have the capability of causing severe injury or death, especially when the victim is a child. Virginia does not impose strict liability on dog owners, which can complicate the personal injury claim process. We can help you prove negligence and collect the compensation you need in order to heal and move forward.
As a consumer, you should feel comfortable and safe using the products you purchase for their intended use. There are many laws imposed on product designers, manufacturers, and retailers to ensure the safety of their merchandise. That said, mistakes do happen and dangerous products cause thousands of injuries across the state each year. If you have been injured by a defective product, the legal team at Armentrout Accident & Injury Law can help identify the responsible parties and prove that their missteps directly caused your accident.
Some mistakes and accidents are so egregious that someone dies as a result. Losing a family member is always a tragedy, but it is even more devastating when it happens due to someone else’s negligence. If you have lost someone to an auto accident, medical malpractice, construction site accident, animal attack, or other preventable situation, you may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Doing so will allow you to collect compensation to cover medical and funeral costs, as well as hold those responsible accountable for their heinous actions.
