      How is Negligence Determined in Personal Injury Claims & Lawsuits? 

      Generally, if a person fails to exercise “ordinary care” in Virginia, it can be considered negligence. This can be defined as the care any reasonable person would provide under similar circumstances. 

      According to VA tort laws, you have the right to seek damages if you were injured due to the negligence of another party. However, proving that someone else was negligent isn’t always easy. 

      At RVA Personal Injury Lawyers we’re focused on developing a solid case, that ultimately, determines who’s at fault while seeking maximum compensation for your injuries.

      When you work with us, our attorneys will secure as much evidence as possible, interview eyewitnesses, and aggressively negotiate with the insurance company for the fair compensation you deserve. 

      Reach out to us today for your free consultation.

      How Long Do I Have to File My Claim?

      Every personal injury case in Newport News, VA is different. However, in most cases, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date you were injured. Though, there are some exceptions to this rule. 

      For example, some instances of medical malpractice allow for an extension of time to file a claim. Additionally, those who were minors (under 18) or incapacitated may have more time to file. 

      If you’re not sure whether you can still seek damages for your injuries – We can help. During your free consultation our attorneys will let you know whether your claim is still viable or not.

      From medical bills to lost income, personal injuries can be expensive. The good news is that you can recoup most (if not all) of your current and future losses with a successful personal injury claim.

      Under Virginia law, you may be awarded the following types of damages for your injuries: 

      • Economic Damages – Medical bills (including future medical expenses), lost wages, decreased earning capacity, cost of rehabilitation, etc.
      • Non-Economic Damages – Pain & suffering, loss of companionship, etc.
