If your injuries are a result of another person’s negligence, you may be interested in pursuing a personal injury accident claim. Unfortunately, filing an injury claim can be time-consuming and confusing. You may not know where to begin if you have never gone through a personal injury claims process.
A knowledgeable legal team can help you pursue your injury claim, and if needed, a lawsuit against the person or entity who caused you harm. You will want to retain legal counsel from a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to avoid making any costly mistakes and to ensure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
What is a Personal Injury Attorney?
A Personal Injury (PI) attorney represents victims who have been harmed in accidents or incidents where the injury was caused by someone else, a product, or an unsafe condition. The type of cases that PI attorneys handle can include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, injuries from defective products, nursing home neglect, pedestrian accidents, dog bites, slip and falls, and more. Personal injury attorneys are well-versed in tort law and can help pursue lawsuits against parties who caused injuries through some form of negligence.
A PI attorney will take legal action against the negligent party to obtain financial compensation on your behalf for losses related to an accident or incident. Under Virginia law, you are entitled to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain, suffering, and inconvenience. Some cases have additional damages that can be pursued.
