Every personal injury claim has four elements that must be met to win a given type of case. These elements include duty, breach of duty, causation, as well as damages.
The existence of this duty is the first step in your negligence case. Our car accident attorneys would help establish that the person at fault owed a duty and reasonable care to you. Normally, a duty is owed by motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, as well as motorcyclists. If your injuries are due to a slip and fall accident, the duty to exercise reasonable care generally applies to business owners or homeowners if you get injured on private property.
The second element that must be satisfied in a negligent case is that the actor failed to meet their duty of reasonable care. Usually, even when the at-fault person didn’t mean to harm someone, they are still liable for not acting reasonably. There are times when a breach of duty is classified as recklessness. This may include car crashes due to flagrant speeding, racing, or drinking and driving.
The third element in a personal injury case is showing causation. This means that the at-fault party’s failure to exercise reasonable care was the actual cause of the injury. The personal injury lawyers at Regan Zambri Long will prove that negligence by the actor contributed immensely to the accident in question. In most states, the only way to recover compensation is for the degree of fault to be 50 percent or less.
Damages are the final element of negligence claims. For a plaintiff to recover compensation, there must be actual damages suffered due to another person’s negligence. If a plaintiff isn’t injured and suffered no damages, there isn’t a valid personal injury claim. Similarly, if the injuries suffered are not serious, it may not warrant pursuing legal action. Some of the typical damages that may warrant filing a negligence claim include:
Our team of personal injury lawyers will help determine whether you have all the four elements for a negligence case and the types of compensation recoverable.
Although every personal injury lawsuit takes a unique trajectory, most claims consist of multiple steps that you must take to recover the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
The key steps in a personal injury lawsuit include:
Make an appointment with a doctor whether you are experiencing symptoms of injuries or not. Sometimes the symptoms of an injury may start manifesting days or weeks after an accident. Besides, if you fail to see a doctor soon after the accident, the insurance adjuster and the jury will probably assume that your injuries aren’t that serious.
Even with minor injuries, it is always a good idea to discuss your situation with a personal injury lawyer at Regan Zambri Long soon after the accident. In Virginia, the law typically imposes a two-year statute of limitation for a personal injury law case.
Most personal injury claims are settled before a lawsuit is ever filed. If our attorneys think the case can settle, they will make a demand on the other attorney or the other insurance company.
If settlement talks stall, a personal injury lawsuit will be filed. Each state has its own pretrial procedures, but generally, the average time it takes for a personal injury case to get to trial is one to two years in most states. It is important to keep in mind that a lawsuit needs to be filed within strict time limits that each state has set in a law called a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations clock starts on the date of the injury.
This phase involves both parties sharing interrogatories and documents from each other. The process may involve depositions of all relevant parties and witnesses, generally beginning with the plaintiff and defendant. This process can last for up to one year, depending on the specific state’s deadlines and the case’s complexity.
The court often prefers parties to resolve their personal injury lawsuit on their own using mediation. A judge can appoint an experienced mediator to help both sides reach a fair settlement.
If mediation doesn’t work, the personal injury lawyers at Regan Zambri Long will take your case to full trial. A personal injury trial can last for a few weeks to years.
After a trial, either side can file an appeal to contest the court’s ruling.
Our highly experienced personal injury attorneys will do everything possible to ensure you receive maximum financial compensation for general and special damages, including medical costs, current and future lost wages, home modifications, physical pain and suffering, emotional suffering, as well as quality of life impact. Damages in a personal injury case include compensations for:
In Virginia, you can bring a personal injury lawsuit if you suffered an injury to your person or property that resulted from someone else’s negligence or an intentional act. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Regan Zambri Long to find out if you have a personal injury case.
A class-action lawsuit occurs when a large group of plaintiffs sues a large group of defendants, naming a representative in place of the entire group. Examples include lawsuits against herbicide manufacturers.
A statute of limitations is a law that sets the maximum time that parties have to initiate legal proceedings from the date of an alleged offense. In Virginia, the statute of limitation for a personal injury case is generally two years from the date the incident occurred.
The adjuster typically adds up all the special damages that are quantifiable and multiply that total by a number between 1.5 and 5 to get a dollar figure representing the value of your general damages.
Pain and suffering is a legal term describing your emotional and physical injuries suffered due to an accident. Essentially, mental anguish or physical pain you suffer following an accident may be deemed as pain and suffering for settlement purposes.
Most of the cases we handle are on a contingent fee contract. This means that you won’t pay anything until we win the case through an out-of-court settlement or a jury verdict. For more information, please visit our FAQ page.
