Advocating for Families after a Motor Vehicle Accident Changed Their Lives Forever

Skilled auto accident attorneys serving Washington, D.C., and West Virginia

Washington, D.C., and West Virginia have high-volume roadways. From commercial truckers traveling throughout the countryside to commuters stuck on the Beltway, thousands of cars, trucks, motorcycles and mass transit vehicles enter and exit the roads during any given hour. The chances of being involved in a motor vehicle accident are great, and drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians are at risk of being seriously injured.

Paulson & Nace, PLLC, understands just how severe an auto accident may be. Our dedicated team of trial attorneys has successfully represented clients in Washington, D.C., and West Virginia who have suffered catastrophic injuries in a motor vehicle accident. With more than 40 years of experience serving our community, we know what it takes to build a winning case for our clients.

Who we serve

Our firm advocates on behalf of victims who were grievously injured in accidents involving:

  • Cars. There were 30,800 fatal car crashes nationwide in 2012, and thousands more that caused serious bodily harm. Paulson & Nace handles complex car accidents involving collisions, defective automotive parts, negligent drivers and unsafe roadways.
  • Commercial trucks. Accidents involving commercial trucks are almost always catastrophic, based on the sheer weight of the trucks alone. If you were injured in a crash with a tractor-trailer or delivery truck, we may be able to help.
  • Motorcycles. Motorcycle accidents are among the most deadly. The lack of protection from the elements combined with the attitude of many drivers toward bikers puts riders at risk on the road every day.
  • Pedestrians and cyclists. Pedestrians and bicycle riders must contend with fast-moving vehicles on roadways that do not always take their safety into consideration. Paulson & Nace helps protect the rights of cyclists and pedestrians when they are injured in a serious accident with a motor vehicle.

Victims of accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, or any other kind of motor vehicle often suffer devastating physical injuries, emotional trauma and significant financial losses. At Paulson & Nace, our West Virginia and Washington D.C. attorneys look after your best interests by advocating tenaciously on your behalf.

Why motor vehicle accidents happen

The exact cause of an auto accident is not always obvious. Sometimes it is the driver’s fault, but other times it is the fault of the state or city responsible for keeping the roads repaired and safe. In cases involving a defective automotive part, the manufacturer may be held liable. People injured in an auto accident due to the fault or negligence, entirely or in part, of someone else are entitled to be compensated for their personal injuries. Our skilled trial attorneys are unafraid to fight for clients in the courtroom, and prepare every case as though it were going to trial. We do not accept unfair settlement offers, but have the wherewithal to negotiate a settlement that is fair for our clients when that is the better option.
