Washington, DC Car Accident Attorney

Serving Injured Victims & Families Across the DMV

DC is among the nation's most populated metro areas, and it sees thousands of car accidents each year. When accidents are serious enough to cause injuries, life as you know can come to a screeching halt.

Trusted by Clients & Local Communities

Our firm has helped countless clients across Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia recover compensation after they suffered injuries that could and should have been prevented. Hear from one of our satisfied clients:

"I was in a car accident in February 2010. I went to a firm and was told I didn't have a case because the damage to my car was under $600. A friend recommended CSCS. Attorney Siegel is a very intelligent, knowledgeable, and respectful individual. I would highly recommend CSCS to my family and friends."

After a Car Accident: Your Right to Compensation

Victim of preventable accidents have the right to recover monetary compensation for their damages, including economic and non-economic losses such as:

  • Past medical bills (for treatment, surgery, physical therapy, etc.)
  • Future medical expenses (for any expected long-term or life-long needs)
  • Lost income from missing work
  • Lost future earnings from long-term or permanent disabilities
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional and mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life / loss of support

Though there is a process in place, compensation is never guaranteed - especially when insurance companies work aggressively to dispute or deny your claim, and do everything in their power to limit payouts as much as possible.

To hold at-fault parties responsible, you must prove another's negligence or wrongful acts more likely than not caused your accident, and that you suffered actual damages as a result. These steps require significant work and preparation, and the insight of proven lawyers.

As attorneys, our job is to establish fault and liability, explore your available options, and guide you through the most appropriate pathway while fighting for the maximum compensation possible. We’ve helped hundreds of families affected by auto accidents, and we know how to level the playing field when they face off against powerful insurance carriers and corporations that care more about profits than people.

Examples of Our Car Accident Verdicts & Settlements

The following are some results we've secured in auto accident cases:

  • $6 Million – Settlement for client who suffered a brain injury in a rear-end accident.
  • $4.8 Million – Settlement for seriously injured motorcycle accident victim struck by vehicle.
  • $1.9 Million – Jury Verdict awarded to client who suffered permanent back injury in a car accident. Prior to trial, State Farm insurance offered $20,500 to settle the case.
