  1. The responsible corporation or individual is held fully accountable.

  2. Assurance that what happened to you will not happen to anyone else in your community.

  3. Compensation that recognizes the full and fair value of what was taken from your health and quality of life. 

A Portsmouth personal injury attorney can help you achieve those goals. Contact us to schedule a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

Types of Personal Injury Cases in Portsmouth

Personal injuries can occur in a vast number of accidents. When someone is negligent, it can lead to serious consequences for victims. After an injury, you will want an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process. At RVA Personal Injury Lawyers, we handle a wide variety of cases, including:

Importantly, not every accident leads to a personal injury case. The most effective way to determine whether you have the right to recover compensation is to have your case reviewed by a Virginia personal injury lawyer today.

How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Determine Whether You Have a Claim

The validity of a legal claim is contingent on a person or entity being negligent and causing your injuries. That is the first step in getting you the compensation you deserve for your injury and losses. Our team will investigate your accident and find out who is liable. We will review their insurance policy once we find this person or entity. 

During this process, we will be collecting evidence that supports your claim. Examples of evidence in a personal injury case can include police reports, surveillance footage, medical records, receipts, and other things that may establish liability and damages. The insurance company will be doing the same but is collecting evidence and trying to use it against you. They are responsible for paying your losses if you can prove your injuries resulted from the accident. Liability is a complex legal matter that should be handled by a Virginia personal injury lawyer.

Fair Value of Health and Quality of Life

After determining liability and collecting evidence, the next step is to prove your damages. You will have to show that you had losses from the accident. Case worth is a vital aspect of your claim. Depending on your case, there are different damages you can pursue. 

After an accidental injury, you are likely entitled to compensation for both your economic and non-economic losses. Economic losses are monetary losses like medical expenses, lost income, car repairs, or lost earning potential. Non-economic losses include things like pain and suffering and lost quality of life. An experienced personal injury attorney in Portsmouth will be able to evaluate all of your losses and ensure that you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled under the law.
