How to Prove Liability: Building a Successful Personal Injury Claim

potato money - The Jackson Law GroupWith limited exceptions, personal injury claims in Virginia are generally based on negligence. Negligence is the failure to act with due care. To hold a defendant liable for your damages, you must prove that their careless actions or inactions, in some form, caused your accident. All successful personal injury claims are backed by well-documented supporting evidence. The sooner you consult with our Wytheville, VA personal injury attorneys, the sooner we will begin investigating your claim and gathering evidence.  For example, if you were involved in a commercial truck accident in Wythe County, our Virginia personal injury attorneys are prepared to track down the police report, get witness testimony, secure any video or photographs, subpoena truck inspection records and driver history, and take action to get any other evidence relevant to your case. We will work proactively to prove liability so that you can get justice and access to the maximum available financial support. 

You Deserve Full Financial Compensation

Hammer - The Jackson Law GroupUnder Virginia law, injured victims may seek financial relief for both direct monetary losses and intangible damages. However, even if you have a strong case, recovering full and fair compensation for your injuries can be difficult. Insurance companies put an enormous amount of resources into training their representatives to protect their bottom line. The company’s goal is simple: protect its profits. Our Wytheville, VA personal injury attorneys fight aggressively to help clients recover every penny that they deserve. You may be entitled to money damages for: 

  • Emergency room care;
  • Medical bills and related expenses;
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitative services;
  • Loss of current and future wages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Disfigurement/scarring; 
  • Long-term disability. 

Most personal injury cases are settled prior to litigation. We have deep experience representing clients in settlement discussions. Our Wythe County lawyers know how to build a case and work with insurers. That being said, we are a trial-tested law firm. If your case needs to go to court, we are ready to take it there. 

How Our Wytheville Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

Book shelf with law booksBefore you call the insurance company, agree to answer questions, or sign any documents, it is imperative that you speak to an experienced attorney. Simply put, defendants and insurance companies are not on your side. Their goal is to limit your recovery, possibly even denying your claim altogether. You need a top-rated attorney in your corner—and The Jackson Law Group is ready to help. Among other things, our Wytheville, VA personal injury lawyers will: 

  • Conduct a free, in-depth review of your case; 
  • Carefully explain your legal rights and options;
  • Investigate the accident—gathering evidence;
  • Represent you before the insurance company; and
  • Take action to protect your rights and help you recover full compensation. 

We know that no two cases are exactly alike. Every client deserves fully personalized guidance and representation. Of course, we know that nothing matters more for our clients than obtaining successful results. Our Wytheville, VA personal injury lawyers are prepared to take your case as far as it needs to go to protect your interests. 

Virginia Personal Injury Laws

Several laws could impact your ability to receive compensation following an accident. Our legal team has studied these laws for years, so we know how to use them to your advantage—and how to make sure we protect your rights.

One law is the statute of limitations. This law gives accident victims a maximum amount of time to file a lawsuit. In Virginia, personal injury victims typically have two years to file a lawsuit based on their accident. The clock usually begins ticking the day of the accident, and if you go over the deadline, then you can’t file a lawsuit later.

For this reason, it is vital that you contact an experienced Wytheville personal injury attorney to review your case. We can file a lawsuit under the deadline if we find that almost two years have passed. There may be exceptions, depending on the facts, but please do not expect to receive an extension.

Another law that could impact your case is contributory negligence. Virginia is one of the few states in the country that still recognizes contributory negligence as a defense. If you were negligent—even a little bit—you can’t receive compensation. In practice, this means someone who is even 1% responsible for an accident loses out on the ability to hold the defendant accountable. That is a very unforgiving rule, but Virginia refuses to change it.

For example, you might have been struck by a car while crossing an intersection. However, you were looking at your phone and didn’t see a car coming toward you. Even though your percentage of fault is tiny, it’s enough to prevent you from receiving any compensation. Our Wytheville, VA personal injury lawyers will do everything in our power to fight off accusations that you were negligent in the build up to the accident.

How to Improve Your Odds of Success

No one is guaranteed compensation. Even if someone intentionally hurt you, you will need solid evidence to negotiate any amount of compensation. At our firm, we recommend that injured victims remember the following:

1) Document your accident as best as you can. Evidence will disappear quickly, so remember to talk with witnesses and try to take photographs of the accident scene.

2) Never give a recorded statement to any insurance representative. You should hire an attorney first. Insurers like to dig for any admission of fault which, as explained above, will prevent you from receiving compensation.

3) Always go to the doctor after an accident and follow through with your treatment plan. You don’t want the defendant accusing you of making your injuries worse.

4) Avoid talking about your accident on social media. Instead, talk to people in person if you want to provide updates on how you are doing. Please set your social media profiles to private and hold off on adding new friends.

By following these steps, you can maximize your chances of receiving a fair settlement. Of course, your choice of personal injury attorney matters a great deal as well. Always look for someone with sufficient experience.
