Car accidents are among the leading causes of serious, catastrophic injury and death in the United States.
Some of the most common types of injuries resulting from car accidents include:
- Broken bones/bone fractures
- Bruises, contusions, abrasions, and lacerations
- Head, shoulder, and neck injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Traumatic amputation
These and other car accident-related injuries can have a serious impact on the victim’s life, as well as the lives of their loved ones. By filing a personal injury claim, the victim can seek fair compensation for their injury-related damages so that they can begin to heal.
Determining Fault in Your Virginia Car Accident Claim
Virginia is one of very few states to still follow the strict rule of contributory negligence. Under this rule, you may not recover compensation after an accident for which you were even minorly at fault. If the insurance adjuster argues that you were just one percent to blame, you could be barred from recovering compensation for your injuries and related damages. For this reason, it is extremely important that you work with an experienced car accident lawyer who can prove the fault of the other driver (or another third party).
To determine fault in your car accident claim, our team may:
- Work with accident reconstruction experts to determine how the crash occurred
- Evaluate evidence from the scene of the accident, such as tire marks
- Get your account of what happened and talk to any eyewitnesses who saw the crash
- Review images or video footage (if available) from the crash
- Engage in the testimony of expert witnesses with expertise in this area
We know how to build powerful, evidence-based claims for our clients. Our meticulous approach to case preparation and our aggressive client advocacy have helped us recover millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts.
Damages in Car Accident Claims
The potential value of your claim depends on many factors, but there are certain types of damages you may be entitled to recover, depending on the specific details of your case.
Common damages in car accident claims include:
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Past, current, and future pain and suffering
- Past, current, and future lost income/wages
- Loss of earning ability/inability to obtain gainful employment
- Emotional distress and trauma
- Miscellaneous out-of-pocket expenses associated with the accident
Though rare, punitive damages can also be recovered if it can be proven that the defendant acted with gross negligence, egregious misconduct, or intent to cause injury or harm.
