Southampton County Personal Injury Lawyers

Free Consultation No fee unless we win!

    A serious injury changes your life permanently. Not only do you face hospitalization, rehabilitation, and potential job loss, but your medical expenses are adding up at a time when you may not be able to earn income. Meanwhile, you still owe your rent or mortgage and other household bills. Taken together, the aftermath of a severe accident can prove to be the most challenging time in your life. While you may feel desperate, know that help and compassionate concern is available through the services of personal injury lawyers.

    The Southampton County personal injury lawyers at Rutter Mills can help you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries. In business for more than half a century, our record speaks for itself. If we cannot settle your case, we will take it to trial.

    Types of personal injury

    While personal injury lawsuits run the gamut, all have one thing in common. One or more parties acted in a reckless or negligent manner, resulting in the plaintiff’s injuries. While motor vehicle accidents make up the bulk of personal injury cases, other frequent causes of serious injuries include:

    • Boating accidents
    • Medical malpractice
    • Defective products
    • Premises liability
    • Workplace accidents

    The bottom line is that a Virginia personal injury attorney protects your interests and can hold the responsible parties accountable for your injuries. We work with top-notch investigators and other professionals to examine all aspects of the accident and reveal any potentially liable parties. For example, liability in a  truck accident often extends beyond the driver and may include the trucking company, the maker of the vehicle, and anyone responsible for creating or not repairing hazardous road conditions. Each case is unique, and we review each of them thoroughly.

    Virginia statute of limitations

    In Virginia, the statute of limitations varies depending on certain facts. Generally speaking, the deadline for filing a personal injury claim is two years from the date of the accident. Should a person succumb to their injuries, family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit within two years of the death date. If the injury relates to any government-related entity, including school districts and local municipalities, the statute of limitations is shorter.

    The bottom line is that it is critical to contact an attorney as soon as possible after your accident. The sooner you retain legal counsel, the sooner we can get to work on your case.

    Virginia personal injury damages

    In Virginia, damages, or compensation, for personal injury may include:

    • Medical expenses – current and future
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of future earnings
    • Earning capacity diminishment
    • Property damage
    • Pain and suffering
    • Emotional anguish and trauma

    What Our Clients Say

    "The staff at Rutter Mills worked for me from the first minute I was in their office. They called and emailed every week and kept better records than I did. I was injured and had to undergo two operations from the accident. The recovery period was long with many physical therapy sessions over the next year. The staff emailed me many times, asking if there was anything they could do to make me feel better during my recovery. During this time my attorney was active in filing the paperwork for court litigation, but was contacted by the other law firm that wished to discuss settling my case. Depositions were done and the final one was scheduled and I was present to complete that phase of the case. My attorney got a maximum award for me and I will be forever grateful for his and their staff's work and attention during my time of legal need. Rutter Mills will be my only call if I ever need legal representation in the future." ★★★★★ -Dan, Rutter Mills Client
