Liability in a personal injury case

One of the most important elements of a personal injury case is determining fault. Once fault is established, the at-fault party will need to pay compensation to the injured party, whether it is negotiated or settled in court. A plaintiff can prove fault in a variety of ways, but a few essential elements must be proven in order to find a party liable:

  • That the defending party owed you a duty of care
  • That this duty that was owed to you (the plaintiff) was breached
  • That the cause of the plaintiff’s injuries was this breach of duty
  • That the plaintiff suffered damages, such as missed wages from work or medical bills

How long do i have to file a personal injury case?

Each state has a specific time period in which you are entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit and pursue the compensation you deserve. If this deadline passes, you will be barred from being able to file a claim. In Virginia, under Virginia Code § 8.01-243, the deadline to file a personal injury claim is two years. The court could refuse to accept the personal injury claim if it is filed after this time.

When to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

When someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions cause you harm, you have the right to seek financial compensation for your damages; to do this, you will file a personal injury claim. If your family member tragically died due to another party’s negligence, you may seek recovery by filing a wrongful death claim. In either case, these claims are typically filed against the at-fault party’s insurance company. However, despite your legal right to pursue compensation, the liable insurance company may take steps to devalue or even deny your claim altogether.

If you’re experiencing any issues with your claim, or if you believe you are likely to face challenges in recovering compensation due to the complexity of your case, it’s time to reach out to a personal injury attorney. Remember: Insurance companies are businesses and, like any other business, they are primarily concerned with lowering their costs and increasing their profits. One way they may try to do this is by refusing to pay out claims.

Having an experienced legal team on your side could make all the difference in successfully recovering compensation for all of your damages and receiving a too-low settlement or even nothing at all. If you were seriously injured, if liability is not clear, if you have received a settlement offer that you believe is much too low, or if you are dealing with any other complexities with your claim, don’t wait to contact a personal injury lawyer at our firm. We can use our extensive knowledge of the personal injury system, as well as our considerable resources and skill, to guide you through the process and advocate for you every step of the way.
