      Understanding Virginia Personal Injury Law

      After an accident resulting in serious personal injuries, seeking experienced legal advice within the Hampton area is paramount.

      Consulting with an attorney who’s familiar with these complex personal injury matters is vital due to Virginia’s unique laws, including:

      • Contributory Negligence: Even slight fault, as determined by the court, could prevent you from recovering any compensation. An experienced personal injury lawyer will fight to minimize any perceived contributory negligence in your claim.
      • Statute of Limitations: Virginia sets a two-year time limit on filing most personal injury cases. Exceptions do exist, and an attorney can quickly assess your timeline for legal action.

      The Value of Choosing Personal Injury Lawyer – Hampton, VA

      While larger law firms advertising nationwide coverage might seem attractive, opting for a Virginia-rooted attorney holds distinct advantages:

      • Local Knowledge: In-depth familiarity with Hampton courts, insurance companies that operate heavily in the area, and common accident locations – these can give you an edge during the claims process.
      • Understanding Community Resources: Having an established network of connections with Hampton medical specialists can streamline access to care, further strengthening your personal injury case.

          Is there a cap on how much compensation I can receive?

          There is no cap on damages in most personal injury cases. But there is a cap on damages in medical malpractice cases.

          How much is our Attorney’s Fee?

          Nothing until we win your case.

          We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we don’t get paid unless you get paid.

          If we resolve your case before filing a lawsuit, we charge a fee of up to 33.33% of the recovery. After a lawsuit is filed, we may charge a fee of up to 40% of the recovery.
