Why You Should Trust Your Case to an Attorney

The District of Columbia has implemented recent changes to its longtime contributory negligence law. Previously, if you were found to have contributed to the accident/incident that caused your injuries through negligence—no matter how small your contribution may have been—you were not able to recover compensation in a personal injury claim. However, with recent updates to the law, this may no longer apply in car accident, pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, and other similar accident claims. Now, as long as you were not more than 50% at fault for the incident, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages.

Clearly, Washington, D.C. has had some significant updates to their negligence laws in recent years. This can make self-representation, especially against the liable party’s lawyers and insurance carriers, both perplexing and extremely difficult. Therefore, you should rely on a Washington, D.C. personal injury lawyer to avoid possible complications on your claim.
