In need of an attorney in Virginia

Evening all,

Earlier this year in May I was hit by an inattentive driver while commuting home. I am nearing the end of the medical procedures/physical therapy stemming from that, and will be settling up with her insurance company soon. As much as I don't want to involve an attorney, I think it would be wise to at least have that resource at hand in case it becomes necessary. Thanks in advance for any advice or references for anyone that specializes in bicycle or motorcycle accidents.

Thanks again,
John

Incidentally, I'll be cross-posting this in the advocacy forum.

You SURE you want to do that???? That place makes rush hour on Colfax look safe in comparison.

Yeah, I'll save him the trouble of actually reading the A&S responses. They will fall into two categories:

1) Cagers are evil human beings and you should soak the ******* for all he's worth. Additionally, cars should be illegal and all speed limits should be 15 mph.
2) It's completely your fault because you weren't biking 'vehicularly' enough.
