Plain and simple, the firm is great. My accident occurred October 2014. I've never been in a accident that incurred injuries. To be honest, I was a bit nervous on how I was going to approach the situation. I've heard some, not so pleasing, stories about accident lawyers. I took a breath and started to surf the net. BAMM..... At top of the page were the wonderful lawyers that represented me. NOW, I SEE WHY THEY'RE AT THE TOP!!! Let me honestly say that the entire duration of the case was literally effortless. They told me what to do, I did it, and the rest ( WOW ). I see the proof, make them your lawyers and you will see.

I had an auto collision (accident) in 2012. The other driver was at fault but wouldn't own up to it. I contacted Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. for assistance to get the attention and settlement my case deserved. I am glad I did because they worked with me for the time it took the other driver's insurance company to respond and give me my rightful entitlement. Mr. Rand Chatman and Mr. Joseph Smith both of this firm were assigned to my case. They were friendly, professional, respectful and very attentive to my need. I am glad I got to work with them and the firm. I highly recommend this firm if you need a place where you will be treated with dignity and your case gotten what it deserves. Great firm, great people. MarieStella

The care that I received with Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C was a great experience. There are times when accidents happen and you don't know where to turn to get the support and feeling that there is someone in your corner and who cares. From day one Mr. Rand Chapman ensured I fully understood the process and provided real time support. This gave me and assurance my needs were going to be taken care of. I just want to say the staff was always respectful and supportive during calls and ensuring I got the services needed. Again, I thank you and your staff for the kindness, caring and support.

I had a really great experience with this firm from beginning to end. My case was handled carefully. Mr. Chatman kept me abreast of each step and every hurdle. The only things that were required of me was to heal and be patient. The atmosphere of this office was warm and inviting. Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarat & Siegel...YOU GUYS ROCK!!

After a car accident in 2011 I was left with major migraines, plenty of medical bills, and an insurance company playing games with my case. I had a lawyer, whom in 2 years had done nothing to help resolve my case; I was in quite frustrated! That’s when I was recommended to Mr. Allan Siegel, and from there things just got better. Everyone one in the firm made it a point to come introduce themselves to my wife and I, and we were all ways greeted with a warm welcome. Allan jumped right into handling my case, and had made more movement with things in the first 2 weeks, than my previous lawyer had mad in 2 years. I was always kept in the loop as to what was going on with my case, which put me at ease. NEVER was there a point where I felt stressed with Allan handling my case. My case settled outside of court with very favorable results. Allan and his staff treated me with a level of kindness and professionalism that all businesses should aim to provide. I Highly Recommended Allan Siegel!!!

A congressionally mandated cap on liability may limit victims of the May 12th Amtrak incident from receiving proper compensation for their injuries. In 1997, a $200 million cap was instated to help keep the railroads in business when faced with major lawsuits. In a similar incident in a California commuter train accident, a judge had to individually determine the compensation for each victim while abiding by the cap. Frustrated by the insufficient cap, the judge wrote, “impossible decisions had to be made. What was given to one victim had to be taken from another.” Click the link below to read about the proposed changes to this liability cap. #Amtrak #personalinjury

The company says it will not contest lawsuits filed against it for the accident on May 12, but a federal cap on damages may leave victims with enormous bills.

Earlier this month 25 youth football coaches from Northern Virginia gathered to discuss safety protocols for the upcoming season. Dick Adams, the former head coach for Annandale High School for 20 years, says, "it’s a safety initiative program to really establish proper techniques in terms of how to play the game. We’re trying to make sure that our coach in the field, a volunteer father, is equipped with the fundamentals to teach proper tackling, proper blocking, practice guidelines, how to deal with heat and hydration, how to identify concussions and how to return to play."

The tragic story of Sandra Bland has sparked an investigation that we hope will shed light on the true circumstances of her death. Ms. Bland was driving from Chicago to Prairie View A&M University in Texas to start a new job when she was pulled over in a routine traffic stop. Ms. Bland was allegedly combative resulting in her head being slammed into the ground by officers. Ms. Bland was later found dead in her jail cell and authorities have described the cause of her death as "self-inflicted asphyxiation." Those close to Ms. Bland are highly suspicious of a suicide ruling saying that she was strong mentally and spiritually. Some have even speculated that a brain injury caused during her arrest could have contributed to her death. Click the link below to see video of her arrest. #JusticeForSandy #WhatHappenedToSandyBland

Texas authorities say Sandra Bland hanged herself in her jail cell, but members of her family say she wouldn't do such a thing. They want answers.

Neurologic music therapy is bringing hope to TBI patients as a promising new method to treat speech loss and cognitive difficulties. Therapist Tracy Bowdish says "because we use more of our brains when we sing than we do when we speak, often people still retain the ability to sing." Read the story below to see how this therapy is already helping stroke patients. #TBI #BIAA

Chrysler has recalled 1.4 million vehicles that can be remotely hacked from anywhere via the internet. The hacker could remotely take control of the steering, brakes, lights, wipers, and all electronics. Currently only one vehicle can be hacked at a time, rather than a mass hacking incident that could instantly affect thousands of vehicles at once. Check out the link below to see if your vehicle is affected. #Chrysler #vehiclehack

A new GOP bill that may be voted on by the Senate this week threatens the safety of our roadways and railways. The bill will delay or eliminate many safety provisions including delaying the installation of the positive train control safety system that could prevent accidents like the Amtrak incident in Philadelphia earlier this year. It would also delay the installation of new electronically controlled breaking systems on trains hauling crude oil that could prevent potentially explosive collisions. Click the link below to read more about the proposed safety rollbacks. #GOP #wapo

At a time of record auto recalls and high-profile train wrecks, Republicans are working on legislation to roll back safety regulation of the auto and railroad industries.

Automaker Hyundai is recalling approximately 140,000 Sonatas model year 2015 for defective seatbelts. The metal tongue of the seatbelt can become jammed if forced into the buckle at an angle and will not fasten properly. A light should appear on the dash to alert drivers of this malfunction. Please check out the link below to see if your vehicle is affected. #Hyundai #recall

Dealers will either repair the buckle or replace it at no cost to owners.
