Helping You Navigate Virginia’s Car Accident Laws
Having a car accident lawyer on your side who understands Virginia’s car accident laws can give you the upper hand when pursuing compensation. The state follows a “contributory negligence” law when pursuing damages that is different than some other states.
Winning Damages in a Contributory Negligence State
Because of Virginia’s challenging and restrictive laws, it is especially important to work with a lawyer who will fight aggressively for you and collect evidence refuting the other party’s claim that your actions contributed to the crash.
Similarly, if the other driver is going after you for damages, a car accident lawyer in Stafford County can help you avoid liability by making the case that the other driver shoulders some of the blame.
Going After the Other Driver and Their Insurer for Damages
To win damages from the other driver and their insurance company, we must show that they were at fault for the accident. Doing so requires collecting substantial evidence and presenting it in a compelling fashion. Our evidence forms the crux of our case; without it, we cannot expect to recover compensation. So our lawyer pours extensive resources into gathering proof to back up our claims.
The evidence we collect in a typical car accident case includes the following:
- Police reports
- Eyewitness statements
- Photo and video surveillance
- Accident reconstruction
- The other driver’s statements
- Cell phone use records
- Expert witness testimony
- Medical records
Handling Negotiations With the Insurance Company (Either Yours or the Other Driver’s)
Once we have built a strong case backed by compelling evidence, we can take it to the other driver’s insurance company and demand compensation. This process involves tough negotiations. The insurance company will likely offer a lower settlement. Our lawyer has fought with many insurers and recovered fair compensation for our clients. We are prepared for every tactic they might use and can counter them.
Taking Your Case to a Jury Trial if Necessary
If the insurance company does not agree to a fair settlement that pays you the damages you deserve, we do not hesitate to file a civil lawsuit and take your case in front of a jury.
The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC, Fights for the Full and Fair Compensation You Deserve
You might be wondering exactly how much your car accident case is worth. In order to estimate its value, we would need to conduct a full investigation, and that is the first thing we do upon taking your case.
Most car accident injury settlements include compensation for some or all of the following damages:
Your medical bills include your surgery, hospital, and doctor’s office expenses, as well as the costs of your prescription drugs and medical devices (e.g., wheelchair, crutches).
If you have been forced to quit your job or miss work due to your injury, you could be eligible for compensation to make up for your lost income.
‘Pain and Suffering’ and Inconvenience
You also deserve compensation for the physical and emotional pain you have suffered. Since this damage does not involve an actual financial loss and is thus highly subjective, an attorney may be able to help you calculate your ‘pain and suffering’ and inconvenience.
Punitive damages are awarded to punish the other driver in situations where their conduct was not just negligent or careless but was reckless or malicious.
If your loved one died in a car accident that was someone else’s fault, we might be able to recover wrongful death damages from the at-fault party.
