Virginia Personal Injury Attorneys
Caring help when you’ve been hurt
We all have the duty to exercise “reasonable care” to avoid harming others. If you have been hurt by another person’s carelessness or act of negligence, you deserve to have your medical expenses covered, and to be fully compensated for any losses you have suffered because of the injury. Under Virginia’s legal system, you have the right to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for all damages – both economic and non-economic.
Why file a personal injury claim?
Medical treatment for serious injuries can be expensive. You may have to miss work while you are recovering from your injuries, making you unable to earn the wages you need to survive and support your family. Some injuries cause permanent disability, meaning you may not be able to continue in your current profession after a serious accident.
Although it can’t take away the pain and suffering, filing a personal injury claim holds the right people responsible. The person or company that caused your injuries should compensate you for the losses you have suffered. Compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering is possible.
How can I get compensation for a personal injury?
If someone else’s negligence has caused you or your loved one to be injured, the best thing to do is to speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. A knowledgeable lawyer can do the following for you:
- Tell you if you have a case.
- Investigate your accident or injury fully.
- Build a strong case based on the evidence.
- Negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.
- Fight for your rights in court if necessary.
It is important to act quickly, so evidence in your case can be collected and preserved. Also, the law imposes a time limit for filing a lawsuit, known as a statute of limitations. You have a certain amount of time in which to file, and once that time has expired, you cannot file a claim.
