"I had a great experience with the firm. Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers treated me like family and gave me the results I was looking for plus so much more. I recommend them to anyone that has been involved in an injury. Thank you again guys"
-Benji B. ★★★★★

"I was injured when I was hit by a car. I tried to negotiate the case directly with the insurance company, but the entire process left me feeling uneasy. The settlement offer seemed low for what happened to me, and the insurance company wouldn’t give me a straight answer about whether my health insurance needed to be reimbursed, or if I would get a large bill from them in the future. While it is not my personality to run out and hire a lawyer, I finally decided to call Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers. They were great and did everything they promised they would do. They were able to negotiate a settlement for more than 2.5 times what the insurance company offered me. I also no longer had to deal directly with the insurance company myself, and had the comfort of knowing that everything was being handled properly. I was very happy with my experience and would recommend Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers to anyone who's been injured in a car accident."
-Justin H. ★★★★★

They made the entire process as easy as possible under the circumstances, so I could focus on my getting better and caring for my young family. They were always prompt, kind and professional. While I hope I never get injured in another accident, I will not hesitate to use Cooper Hurley again if ever get hurt again."

"I was involved in a car accident that left me with back and neck injury. If it were not for John Cooper and his awesome office staff, I would have had no clue how to proceed. I was unsure of what would happen to me and where the results of the accident would lead me in the future. I was referred to Cooper’s law practice and called John Cooper’s office the day of my accident to explain what happened. We met a few days later. His staff member, Stephanie and I met so that she could explain what the firm could do for me, and I answered some questions she had. The firm referred me to a great chiropractor and I was able to receive beneficial therapy for my back and neck pain. John Cooper and his highly trained professionals never stopped fighting for me during the seven months that they worked on my case. The firm made sure I received proper treatment so I could restore my health and relieve the pain and financial burden that surfaces when you are injured. I will never forget John Cooper and his staff. They are so caring, accessible, compassionate, hardworking, and they never give up, which is a rare thing to see in a law firm. I would have never made it if it were not for them. They fought hard and won my case and now I get to be another one of their highly satisfied clients. They not only helped take away the financial burden, but they were always there for me if I needed help or someone to talk to or just to answer any questions I had. It was a great feeling knowing I could depend on them. I’m delighted with the outcome of the case"
-Nicole N. ★★★★★

"In May 2010, in Richmond, Virginia, I was a passenger in a work taxi that was traveling too fast and hit a large pot hole. Due to the speed the driver was going, when we hit the pothole I was tossed out of my seat and twisted my back resulting in serious spinal injuries that led to a surgery. The legal process was new to me, but attorney John Cooper informed me to work on getting better and said he would handle the legal stuff. The office staff was very polite and professional whenever I called the office. John was prepared to take my case to trial, but was able to settle the case right after mediation. I was pleased with my offer and I would recommend Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers to anyone injured by the negligence of another. John took a lot of pressure off me and my family and gave me time to heal. It was a Godsend because John was wonderful."
-Darrell M. ★★★★★

"I was involved in an auto accident May 22, 2012 on I-64 in Chesapeake, Virginia. I was traveling east when a vehicle rear ended me pushing me into the vehicle directly in front of me. I sustained injuries to my left shoulder, elbow and hit my head from the impact. I decided to contact a lawyer so that I wouldn’t have the stress of dealing with the insurance company. My friend suggested that I contact attorney Jim Hurley of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers. The office staff was very polite and professional at all times. I basically was informed to just focus on my treatment and Jim would handle the legal stuff. Once I completed my treatment Jim’s paralegal collected all the medical records and bills so that it could be submitted to the insurance company. It was time to negotiate my case and I was very pleased with my offer. I thought Jim did a great job with my case from start to finish and am so glad I chose Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers. I would recommend Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers to anyone hurt in an accident."
-Alicia L. ★★★★★

"I was involved in an auto accident on January 19, 2011 on I-264 in Virginia. I was traveling east when a vehicle came over in my lane after getting on the ramp and collided with my car. I received injuries to my neck, back, left shoulder, and both legs. At this time, I decided to contact a lawyer I was familiar with to help me with my case. I contacted attorney Jim Hurley of Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers so that I wouldn’t have the stress of dealing with the insurance company.The office staff was very polite and professional at all times and made me feel at ease. Jim Hurley told me to focus on my treatment and said he would handle the legal stuff. Once I completed my treatment Jim’s paralegal collected all the medical records and bills as they could be submitted to the insurance company. It was time to negotiate my case but unfortunately the case did not settle and Jim had to file a lawsuit on my behalf. Finally, after some going back and forth Jim was able to get me a fair offer right before my trial. I would strongly recommend Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers to anyone hurt in an accident."

"I was in an auto accident Aug. 2011. I was on my way to work, it was my first day back. I had spine surgery May 2011. I went to ER that morning and saw my doctor the next day, he said I needed Physical Therapy again. I knew my insurance would not cover anymore for the year, I was at my limit. So my doctor put me on pain pills but I could not take them and work. The whole ordeal was very upsetting. I was visiting my aunt one afternoon and told her what was going on with me . She told me she was in an accident a while back and had a wonderful Lawyer Jim Hurley and that he was with the Cooper and Hurley Law Firm and that they specialized in personal injury. She made an appointment and took me to see Jim Hurley and he was exactly what I needed. I was very stressed. I was in pain and knew I need therapy but did know how I would manage it. He assured me that he and his staff would take care of everything and that I needed to concentrate on my health and well being and stop worrying and to seek the medical treatment that I needed and he would take care of the rest. I was very impressed with Cooper and Hurley Law Firm. Their staff are very knowledgeable and they all put mind to ease so I could heal. I was very pleased with the settlement that Jim Hurley negotiated for me and I most certainly would recommend the law firm of Cooper and Hurley to anyone with a personal injury."
-Sally M. ★★★★★

"I was driving down Newtown Road in Virginia Beach, Virginia, when I stopped at a red traffic light and was rear-ended. Because of this accident I sustained injuries to my back and neck. I thought I was going to be alright but the next day the pain did not go away so I decided to go to the Emergency Room. I spoke with a friend of mine and he told me I should speak with a lawyer and he recommended Jim Hurley with Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers in Norfolk. I called Jim Hurley’s office and made an appointment to meet with him. The staff at Cooper Hurley were amazingly helpful. They kept me updated throughout the process. The insurance company seemed to have no interest in making sure I was fairly compensated for my injuries. Jim Hurley took a tough approach with the insurance company. He was prepared to file a lawsuit in my case. Luckily, Jim was able to get my case settled before we had to go to court and in the end I was very happy with the results. I was impressed with the efficient way my case was resolved by Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers and the way the firm treated me like family. I would recommend Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers to any of my friends or family that have been involved in an auto accident or any other kind of accident."

"I was a passenger who was traveling down Old Hertford Road in Edenton, North Carolina when another vehicle pulled out in front of our car, causing us to swerve and hit a pole.
