      Steps to Take After You’ve Suffered a Catastrophic Injury In Norfolk

      Suppose you’ve been injured in an accident in the Tidewater region. In that case, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself physically, financially, and legally. After an accident injury, consider these steps:

      Seek Immediate Medical Attention

      This may be one of the most crucial steps in the personal injury process. If you have been injured due to another person’s negligent behavior, you’ll need to prove that your injuries stemmed from the incident. 

      Generally, the best form of proof is meticulously maintained medical documentation. Without it, it can be difficult (if not impossible) to obtain maximum compensation for your damages. 

      Alert The Authorities

      Whether it’s car accidents or slip and fall claims, it’s recommended that you alert the appropriate authorities soon after the accident.

      That way, you have an official record of the event taking place. While this isn’t necessarily evidence of fault, it can help to prove that the accident actually happened. 

      Gather Evidence

      If possible, don’t leave the accident scene without first collecting evidence. Depending on the situation, that can include: 

      • Pictures/videos of your injuries, the scene, and property damages
      • Eyewitness statements 
      • Surveillance/ Dashcam footage 
      • Other physical evidence

      Further, your attorney can help you gather additional evidence, including proof of medical bills, police reports, evidence of lost wages, and more. 

      Contact A Personal Injury Lawyer

      Dealing with insurance claims, court documents, and recovering from your injuries at the same time can be overwhelming.

      In most cases, it’s recommended that injured Norfolk residents seek the help of a seasoned attorney as soon as possible. 

      Here’s how a lawyer can help: 

      • Unbiased assessment of the merits of your case
      • Assistance determining who’s at fault
      • Evidence collection and preservation 
      • Access to expert witnesses 
      • Negotiations with the insurance company
      • Representation in court (when necessary)

      You’re not required to hire a personal injury attorney. However, doing so can greatly increase your chances of obtaining maximum compensation for your injuries.

      Further, your attorney can help ensure you avoid settlement offers that don’t cover the full extent of your current and future losses.

      Don’t wait until it’s too late to seek maximum compensation. Give us a call today for your free case review.

          For answers specific to your case, please give us a call at (804) 915-1611 or contact us online.

          How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?

          The statute of limitations is two years for most personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases in Virginia.

          For most cases, you must file a lawsuit within that time frame. But there are exceptions. Give us a call at (804) 915-1611 to discuss your options.

          What is the amount of a verdict or settlement based on?

          In Virginia, the jury considers the following factors when deciding the amount of a verdict:

          (1) Any bodily injuries sustained and their effect on health according to their degree and probable duration;

          (2) Any physical pain and mental anguish suffered in the past and any that may be reasonably expected to suffer in the future;

          (3) Any disfigurement or deformity and any associated humiliation or embarrassment suffered in the past and any that may be reasonably expected to suffer in the future;

          Virginia Model Jury Instruction No. 9.000: General Personal Injury and Property Damage

          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. 

          There is also a cap on punitive damages. 

          Your personal injury lawyer should pursue the full and fair value of what was taken from your health and quality of life.

          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.
