Personal Injury Case Liability in Virginia
If you were injured in an accident and wish to seek compensation for your damages, the first thing you’ll need to do is determine who is liable. In Virginia, liability laws are governed by the rule of pure contributory negligence. Under this rule, which is one of the strictest liability laws in the nation, anyone who is found to have contributed to the accident in any way, no matter how negligibly, cannot bring a personal injury claim. As such, proving that someone else was at fault for the incident that led to your injuries and related damages is critically important.
Often, in order to avoid having to pay your claim, the liable person’s insurance provider will try to show that you contributed to the accident in some way. They may also use this to try to settle your claim for much less than it is actually worth. In any case, it’s important that you work with an attorney who understands how to fight back against these tactics.

When a product is defective, it can cause serious, long-lasting harm to ordinary consumers. Product designers, manufacturers, and distributors are required by law to create and sell products that are reasonably safe and, when they fail to do so, they can be held accountable.
If you or someone you love was injured by a defective product, you do not need to show that another person or party was negligent in order to bring a product liability claim. As long as you can prove that you were using the unmodified product as it was intended and were injured or harmed as a result of a product defect, you can seek compensation for your damages. In the state of Virginia, you can bring a claim under strict liability, negligence, or breach of warranty. Contact us to learn more!
If you are injured on someone else’s property, and you can show that you were on the property legally at the time, you may be able to seek compensation by filing a premises liability claim. In order to do so, you will need to show that the owner of the property knew that a dangerous condition existed, but failed to take reasonable action to address or fix the condition and that this condition led to your accident and/or injuries.
At Portner & Shure, P.A., we assist clients with all types of premises liability cases in Vienna, VA, including those involving slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, and more.
