Why do injured people in rural communities come to a Norfolk, Virginia (VA) or Virginia Beach (VA) , Virginia lawyer for their automobile crash cases? There are obviously many answers. In part, the surrounding rural communities are used to coming to Hampton Roads for services, including doctors, lawyers and retailers. However, there is often a deep seated mistrust of the local lawyer in smaller communities. What ends up happening is that the insurance companies like Allstate, State Farm and Nationwide are regularly hiring those local lawyers to defend against people’s claims for compensation for injuries. Understandably, people in rural communities do not want to go to a lawyer who regularly represents the insurance companies to handle a family member’s significant damages from a car wreck. The country lawyers for the most part are not able to specialize in personal injury cases or to only take the plaintiff or claimant’s side in car wreck cases. Economically they may have to be willing to work for the insurers in order to stay busy. So, one of the main reasons that people in rural counties come to our law firm for help in a auto accident is that they are sure that we never represent insurance companies. Our slogan “All We Do Is Injury Law” says a lot. It describes that this is our exclusive area of practice. It also lets the customer know that we have only their interests at heart, because we only represent plaintiffs like them and never represent the defendants, insurers or at-fault corporations.
