Personal Injury

We represent parties who have been injured because of someone else's fault.

MartinWren, P.C. is a law firm based in Charlottesville and Harrisonburg that fights for injured clients throughout Virginia. Our award-winning personal injury lawyers have extensive experience representing those who have been injured in car accidents or truck accidents, by dangerous products, in premises liability claims due to dangerous property, in workplace injury claims, in nursing home neglect and abuse cases, and in medical malpractice claims. Why choose us? Our firm is different from most law firms because your primary point of contact will always be an attorney. You will be on a first-name basis with the lawyer handling your claim, and your case will not be pushed off on a paralegal or other legal assistant. We are not one of those firms that heavily advertises and has a large volume of cases handled by non-lawyers. What will we do for you? Our goal is to get you the most money available for your claim while allowing you to focus on getting healthy. We will compile the evidence and legal arguments necessary to present your claim to the insurance company, and we will do what we can to settle the claim for the most compensation for you. If it turns out that your claim cannot be settled, we have significant litigation experience throughout Virginia and we will file a lawsuit to seek more money for your claim. What should you expect? If you hire us, you will meet or speak at length with one of our personal injury lawyers. We will need you to fill our some paperwork that will allow us to investigate the claim, gather all of the necessary paperwork, obtain your medical records, and speak with witnesses about the case. We will meet with you at your convenience to discuss your claim, whether at your home, your workplace, the hospital, or at our office. For more information, please contact us today at (434) 817-3100.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Having represented hundreds of clients who have suffered injuries or even had a loved one die because of another's negligence, we have seen first hand the disruptive and devastating impact injuries and death can have on a family. Although we cannot make it so that the injuries never occurred, we will do whatever we can to bring our clients' lives as close to normal as possible. We enjoy helping our clients and becoming friends with them along the way.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Many law firms that specialize in personal injury make their money by having a number of paralegals and other non-lawyer staff members prepare a large number of cases that are resolved by an attorney. Oftentimes, these "personal injury mills" will focus on quickly settling cases, even if that means the settlement occurs for a discounted amount. MartinWren, P.C. is a small law firm that emphasizes quality over quantity. We are not a "personal injury mill" that uses a team of paralegals and other non-lawyer staff members to quickly settle a large volume of cases for a reduced amount. Instead, clients of MartinWren, P.C. will meet with an attorney for their initial consultation, they will regularly communicate with the attorney they hire, and they will be advised about how their case is progressing.
