Offering immediate response and compassionate representation

As a personal injury lawyer in Fairfax VA, I bring the benefit of many years of legal experience. I have been advocating for my clients in civil cases since 1987, and my goal is to inspire trust and confidence in those seeking legal counsel. When you turn to Bolger Law Firm for a free review of the circumstances surrounding your injuries, you meet directly with an attorney, not a paralegal or office assistant.

Helping injured people pursue compensation

When a serious injury or death occurs, whether due to an auto accident, an animal attack, a criminal act, unsafe premises or other dangerous circumstances, a family’s life is suddenly and dramatically altered. We understand how important the outcome of your case is to you and everyone you love. Bolger Law Firm has extensive experience handling personal injury claims including:

  • Brain/head trauma
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Temporary or permanent paralysis
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Flesh wounds
  • Dog and other animal bites and the trauma caused by an attack
  • Product-related harm
  • Work-related injuries
  • Construction-related harm
  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Wrongful death

A negligent or wantonly reckless individual or party may be liable for these kinds of accidents and injuries. If you are uncertain how you should proceed, or about whether you are eligible to seek compensation in the form of damages, an experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to help you.

How we help you through the legal process

Personal injury attorneys in Fairfax and throughout the state have to grasp liability law and understand the many ways in which clients’ injuries may affect their entire lives. This may include loss of earning capacity, a drastic reduction in quality of life, ongoing medical bills and property loss or damages.

As a lawyer committing to helping clients with personal injuries in Fairfax, I believe people should have a basic understanding of civil law. Plaintiffs seeking damages typically need to show proof that the defending party behaved negligently. Negligence is defined as “… failure to use reasonable care to avoid harm to another person or to do that which a reasonable person might do in similar circumstances.”

These are the circumstances that must be shown and proven in court by the plaintiff:

  • The defendant — perhaps an employer, a healthcare provider, a caretaker or owner of dangerous premises, or a motor vehicle driver — was negligent in the “duty of care.”
  • The defendant breached the duty of care by willingly or mistakenly foregoing safety or responsibility.
  • Injuries must have occurred.
  • These injuries must have a direct relationship to the neglectful actions of the defendant.

Regardless of how you may have experienced injury due to someone else’s negligence, I urge you not to “tough it out.” The injury you sustained may prove to be a long-term injury. I am happy to accommodate your schedule and your needs to get your case underway immediately.

With careful attention, a calm approach and a broad range of knowledge that inspires confidence in my clients, I work diligently to ensure that your rights are protected. And I fight to get you fair compensation for the damages you have suffered.
