Auto Accidents

A car, truck or motorcycle speeding down the road, driven by an operator who is inattentive or impaired, quickly becomes a deadly weapon.

Drunk Driving

Driving drunk is not only illegal, it is extremely dangerous. That is why our attorneys at Dunnigan & Messier, PC, offer relentless representation to victims of drunk driver accidents throughout Virginia.

Pedestrian Accidents

While being involved in a car accident as a driver or passenger can be damaging enough, being hit by a car, bus or semi truck can cause severe and often fatal injuries.

Slip & Fall Injury

Slipping, tripping, and falling accidents can happen anywhere, often resulting in painful and serious trauma for the victims.

Truck Accidents

Accidents involving 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles often result in much more serious injuries simply due to the sheer size and weight of the trucks involved.
