Roanoke Car Accident Lawyer

Injured in an Auto Accident? Help for the Injured Party

In the state of Virginia we have what is called contributory negligence. This means that if you were doing anything that contributed to the accident, the other party at fault can argue that they don’t owe you anything, or owe you less than what you’re asking for. For example, if a driver swerved into your line of traffic and caused a crash, but you were speeding at the time, the driver’s insurance company would seek to prove that you were partly or wholly negligent in the crash.

My name is Charles Allen, and I have been a Roanoke car accident attorney for more than 30 years. I am a trial lawyer who helps injured parties obtain compensation for any personal injury caused by the negligence of another party.

Representative case: My client was a jogger running in the same direction as traffic and was hit from behind by a car. Because she was supposed to be running on the other side of the street, the insurance company argued contributory negligence and did not make a settlement offer in her case. I was able to obtain $35,000 compensation for her injuries by proving to the court that she did not contribute to the accident.

Montgomery County and Blacksburg Car Injury Attorney

At Charles R. Allen, Jr., Attorney at Law, I help individuals recover full and fair compensation for all types of injuries resulting from auto accidents. The most important aspect of the civil litigation is often the doctor’s testimony.

I accept personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that there is no legal fee unless I win a settlement for your injuries.

Please contact me before you decide what to do, if you’ve suffered any of these injuries:

  • Back injury
  • Broken bones
  • Burn injuries
  • Head injury or traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Herniated disk or rotator cuff injury
  • Loss of limb
  • Shoulder injury
  • Spinal cord trauma or paralysis

Interstate 81 has a high number of out-of-state drivers on it, some of whom can be injured in an auto accident. I act as local counsel on those types of cases and others.
