stacy client
I highly recommend Randy Appleton! He did an excellent job managing our expectations, and preparing my wife and I for the battle ahead of us; I never felt like I was just another case.
He always responded to our calls, patiently answered all of our questions, and communicated with us through out the process. Randy and his team helped us navigate a very difficult, traumatic, and uncertain time in our life as smoothly as possible given the circumstances. Randy is an excellent attorney, and he cares about the people he represents so well. Thanks Randy !!!

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Know if I Have a Case?

If you were injured in a preventable accident, through no fault of your own, you likely have a case. However, it’s important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. As time passes, evidence disappears, witnesses become more unreliable and the insurance companies have more time to devalue claims. Quick action allows us to begin building the strongest case possible. Call our team today for a free and confidential case evaluation at (757) 321-3983.

How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

The value of a personal injury case is different in every situation. The amount of settlement money offered by the insurance company should account for hospital bills past, present and future, loss of income from inability to work, pain and suffering, and other factors. Generally speaking, the more serious the injuries one has suffered, the more value a case has.

How Much Money Does it Cost to Hire Your Firm?

No up-front money is required to hire our law firm. We take all cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay if we successfully recover money on your behalf. We are confident in our abilities to win car accident cases and based on our history of success, we know we have a great chance of winning your case. Consultations are 100% free, so call us now to discuss your situation without any obligation.
