A personal injury can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Sometimes an accident or illness is more than meets the eye, and another person’s negligent or reckless behavior is a contributing factor. When you suffer exorbitant medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering through little to no fault of your own, the law allows you to seek financial redress through the civil court system.
You may need the service of Rutter Mills Virginia personal injury lawyers if you have a claim arising from:
- A motor vehicle accident
- A workplace accident
- Medical malpractice
- A defective product, drug, or device
Family members may file a wrongful death claim to obtain funds to cover losses, including funeral expenses. The courts often grant additional compensation for loss of income of the decedent, sorrow, mental anguish, and solace. While no amount of money can bring a loved one back, it helps to have the finances to cover surprise expenses and medical bills that may otherwise deduct from the estate.
What a personal injury lawyer can do for you
You have a lot on your plate during this difficult time. Working with a personal injury attorney allows you the space to simply focus on your recovery, while we investigate what really happened, interview witnesses, take depositions, deal with insurers, and build a substantial case on your behalf. If necessary, we can refer you to top area specialists for better care of your injuries, or to local counselors and support groups to cope with the emotional effects. Our experience helps us know when a fair offer is on the table, and when it is necessary to fight for maximum compensation.
Virginia can be a difficult state for litigation, as the law allows only a short period to file a lawsuit to toll the statute of limitations. In some cases Virginia law does not allow recovery if a plaintiff is determined to be even 1% “at fault” for the accident. Other states allow plaintiffs who share liability to collect at least a reduced amount of compensation. For this reason, you need a Rutter Mills personal injury lawyer who can protect your rights.
