Is Your Case a Rutter Mills Case?

Personal injury cases in Newport News are decided based on negligence, which occurs when there is “a failure to behave with ordinary prudence.” Negligence may include action or inaction, depending on the situation. To proceed with the claim, your lawyer must prove the other party had a “duty of care,” or in other words, a legal obligation to you that required adherence to reasonable care to prevent harm.

If you were injured by negligent action or inaction, you may file a claim for the cost of medical care and lost wages. If you recently lost a spouse, parent, or child, you may be able to recover damages to cover funeral and burial expenses, as well as loss of support, companionship, or guidance.

Proving Fault

Virginia is one of the few places in the US that bars a person’s right to file a lawsuit if any portion of the liability is assigned to him or her. Basically, if you were in any way at fault for the incident which led to your injuries, you can’t file a lawsuit. If it’s determined you are even 1% at fault for causing the accident, a judge can deny your right to pursue a lawsuit against the other party. The first thing insurance companies will try is to get you to admit fault. That’s why it’s critical to consult an injury lawyer, like the specialists at Rutter Mills in Newport News.

Isabel B

I was in an auto accident and was injured. We didn’t know anything about the legal process. A friend recommended Rutter Mills. Our team, Andrew Boran and Kathy Saunders guided us and explained each step in our claim to a fair settlement.

Janice F

I'm very grateful for Rutter Mills for helping me with my case. Especially Mr. Boran and Mrs. Kathy Saunders, my amazing team. They kept me informed on on all aspects of the case, they listened to my concerns, we fought hard and won. 👏🙏

Linda D.

I would like to think everyone at Rutter Mills for their wonderful service. Everyone from Christine to Melanie, Catherine and of course Dan. Catherine and Dan worked very hard on my case and looked out for my best interest. I never called an update as I was kept current. They’re truly an asset to the law firm. If I could give addition stars I would.

Nena A

Rutter Mills law firm did a wonderful job with my case. Attorney Porcaro and his paralegal, Kamilah White, assisted me a great deal, kept me informed and optimistic about my case. They helped me feel prepared and confident to testify at trial. Another plus was I did not have to pay anything until my case was won. I highly recommend this law firm for any one else who may need assistance.

Cody W.

First off I want to thank Rutter Mills for the outstanding work they continue to do. I had a case recently and it was a complex one. My lawyer, Will Nexsen did an amazing job. I would highly recommend him and Rutter Mills. I want to give a big thanks to Julia, as well, for keeping me constantly in the loop. She always texted or called me back immediately with any questions and concerns I had. I greatly appreciated that.
