Rutter Mills – Part of Hampton Roads for 6 Decades

Rutter Mills has deep roots in our coastal Virginia communities, and a proven track record of winning challenging cases in both state and federal courts. From slip and fall injuries and defective consumer products to auto accident cases, every Southampton personal injury attorney at our firm is prepared to advocate for your rights and obtain the maximum damages on your behalf.

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 Southampton 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.

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.

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

My son and I had a great experience dealing with this law firm. Our lawyer Mrs Montgomery was very knowledgeable, supportive, and helpful. She’s the absolute best!

Rutter Mills did exactly what I needed. Took all the pressure off of me, negotiated a fair settlement, and treated me royally in the process. At a low point in my mood, they even sent me cookies! My attorney Mr Boran, Kathy, Julie and the rest made a bad situation as painless as possible. I feel lucky to have chosen them after my accident. Thanks Rutter Mills team

Adam Lotkin, Max Baker, and the team behind them are amazing people. They did a great job with communicating and explaining each step of the process and they do the absolute best in ensuring their clients are taken care of. For my case in specific, we expected to wait 2 year to settle l, but through the team’s hard work and a little luck, it was settled in less than a year. I would not hesitate to come back to them if I ever needed to.
