Experience across a variety of accident scenarios
To get the best possible representation, you must find a knowledgeable attorney with experience in injury cases similar to yours. Our attorneys have successfully resolved cases related to auto accidents, trucking accidents, boating accidents, slip-and-fall injuries and dog bites.
We also have the specific knowledge and experience to manage the complexities of motorcycle accidents and bus accidents. Motorcycle accidents can be difficult to litigate because of a prejudice against riders as risk takers prone to unsafe maneuvers. As for bus accidents, whether you’re suing a private company or a municipal service, you can expect to encounter an aggressive defense. If you do not seek medical assistance immediately after the accident, you can expect the bus company to deny that the accident caused your injury. Our attorneys are well acquainted with defense tactics and can develop an effective litigation strategy for you.
Important elements of Virginia personal injury law
Under Virginia’s pure comparative fault law, a person who is responsible for an accident even in the slightest cannot recover any compensation from another party, even if that other party was mostly at fault. For example, imagine you are driving through an intersection and, because you are searching your glove compartment for a map, you do not see another car run the stop sign and a collision results. The court could decide that you bear 10 or 20 percent of the responsibility for the car accident and, under Virginia law, you cannot sue the other driver. The same rule applies for slip-and-fall accidents.
Finally, you must take action before the statute of limitations runs out. In Virginia, personal injury and wrongful death claimants generally have two years to file a lawsuit or they lose their right to recover for their injuries. However, certain circumstances can produce an extension. You should consult an experienced attorney if you think you have an issue with the statute.
