Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Protect your rights first.

When you or a loved one sustains an injury, retaining an attorney is usually the last thing on your mind.


However, in cases of personal injury or wrongful death, there are often very complicated legal, medical, and insurance issues involved. To make sure your rights are protected, consult with an attorney as soon as possible, even if it’s not one from our office.


Your grievance matters to us.

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury or a loved one has been killed or seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence, no amount of money can undo the harm, but you shouldn’t have to bear the costs of medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.


The personal injury lawyers at Walters Renwick Richards Skeens & Vaughan, P.C. are here to help you and your family obtain fair and just compensation for your loss.


At WRRSV, we have helped numerous individuals who have suffered injuries, handling a wide range of cases, including automobile and motorcycle accidents, brain injuries, burn and electrical injuries, child sexual abuse, loss of limb, highway defects, nursing home injuries, and trucking and railroad crossing injuries.


We have the courtroom advantage.

We fight for justice, bringing our full capabilities to bear to seek fair compensation for injuries and loss.


With more than 325 combined years of litigation and trial experience, a proven track record, and assertive and tenacious litigators, our firm won’t hesitate to take your case to trial if a reasonable settlement is not possible.


In cases involving medical issues, our on-staff nurse analyst helps our attorneys evaluate cases and provides assistance as those cases move to trial.  We also have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies and bringing suits against them when necessary.


We stand strong for justice and our clients.

Our personal injury lawyers handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid only if a settlement is obtained or a judgment is collected.


Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Cases

With a tested reputation and proven track record in personal injury litigation, we are proud of the justice we’ve been able to achieve for our clients.


Car and Motorcycle Accidents

Personal injuries most often occur because of a collision or the need to take evasive action on a roadway.  Injuries include muscle injuries, broken bones, lacerations and unfortunately, even death.


At WRRSV, we understand that it is difficult to know what to do when you or a loved one has experienced an injury in an accident.  We can help.  Our experienced litigators can pursue justice and fair compensation from those who caused the injury and from the insurance companies involved in the case.


Premises Liability

Businesses have a responsibility to their consumers, clients, and employees to provide safe environments.


Unsafe buildings, defective handrails, poor lighting, inadequate security, unrestrained objects, and wet or unsafe flooring are just a few examples of conditions that can lead to injury.  Many times building codes, security measures, and other standards are ignored or compromised.


The attorneys at WRRSV have prosecuted premises liability cases involving injuries and have obtained excellent results.


Sexual Abuse of Children

Nothing is more devastating to a family than the sexual, physical, or mental abuse inflicted on a child by someone in a position of trust and authority.  Whether at school, in sporting clubs, in church, or in other places where children are entrusted to the care of an organization, a child should never have to suffer the emotional and physical trauma of abuse.


At WRRSV, we understand this breach of trust can have life-long implications.  We also understand how difficult it can be for children who have lost their innocence to step forward and tell their stories.  Telling the story is often not only the first step to healing, but also an important step in the protection of other vulnerable children.


WRRSV is proud to have represented several courageous victims of childhood sexual abuse who have stepped forward to make a difference.


Burn and Electrical Injuries

The pain of a burn injury and its treatment is excruciating.  In addition to the significant cost of medical treatment, burn injuries can affect your lifestyle and impair your livelihood.


WRRSV understands burn injuries, the course of treatment for these injuries, and making sure that those responsible through careless conduct are held accountable.  Our attorneys have successfully prosecuted cases involving severe burn injuries that resulted from propane explosions, tractor-trailer accidents, and unmarked utilities.
