Accidents are an unfortunate fact of life. But when someone's negligence causes you injury, you need an experienced Virginia personal injury attorney to seek appropriate compensation for you.
From car accidents and motorcycle crashes to slip and fall accidents, the negligence of others can result in serious and long-lasting injuries and pain. Not only is it important to know how to interact with insurance companies responding to such claims, but it is critical to also be prepared to litigate the case in court if necessary to get fairly compensated.
In addition to accidents caused by negligence, Virginia law provides the right to recover for intentional torts, meaning injuries caused by the intentional acts of others. These include assaults, intentional damage to property, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
If you've been been injured by the acts of another, whether negligent or intentional, you need an experienced Virginia personal injury attorney to fight for you.
Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle.
We represent clients in a variety of personal injury and accident cases, such as:
- Car and Motorcycle Accidents. Fortunately, most car accidents are fairly minor. But a serious car or motorcycle accident can result in permanent or long-lasting injuries, loss of wages and earning ability, and pain and suffering. If the negligence or carelessness of another caused the accident, Virginia law gives you the right to seek damages against the responsible party. Oftentimes these cases are settled with the other driver's insurance company, but these claims can also proceed to trial. Having an organized, detail-oriented, and competent injury attorney can make the difference between losing a case or receiving minimal compensation versus receiving fair and full compensation for your injuries.
- Slip and Fall Injuries and Premises Liability. Property owners and businesses open to the public have a right to maintain safe premises and to warn against dangers on their premises. Failure to exercise reasonable care in meeting those obligations can result in injuries, and a premises liability claim aims to hold the property owners accountable for that failure and to provide fair compensation for the injured party.
- Wrongful Death. The most tragic injury cases are those that result in a death. When that happens as a result of the negligence or intentional act of another, a wrongful death claim by the decedent's family may be pursued in order to seek compensation, closure, and justice for the victim's family.
- Defamation and Libel. When someone shares false and damaging information about you with others, the impact can be damaging, including harm to your reputation in the community, possible loss of employment, and the attendant humiliation from being publicly maligned. That's why Virginia law allows you to pursue a claim for defamation (for verbal falsehoods) or libel (for written falsehoods) in order to hold the defaming party accountable and protect your reputation.
- Assault and Battery. A victim of an assault and battery can suffer serious injuries, both physically and emotionally. A claim for the intentional tort of assault holds the offending party accountable while obtaining fair compensation for the victim for their damages.
