What is Personal Injury?

Personal injury is considered an injury to a person’s mind, body, or emotions caused by another person. Personal injury claims involve disputes between private parties, which are considered civil suits. Personal injury cases concern a wrongdoer's negligent or reckless conduct, which causes injury to another. As a society, we want to punish wrongdoers and hold them accountable for their actions. The law protects a victim's right to seek compensation for their injuries. Unfortunately, it is exceptionally difficult to navigate personal injury law without a lawyer. There are countless substantive, procedural, and practical barriers to filing a personal injury claim, so hiring an accomplished personal injury lawyer is vital.

How Do I Recover Damages Or Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim is a civil claim that must include particular legal elements. To recover compensation in your Manassas, Virginia personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that your injury was more likely than not caused by another person’s negligent or reckless action, which is called the preponderance of evidence standard. To meet this standard, your lawyer must present your claim and overcome any legal or factual defenses the opposing party gives. Furthermore, your lawyer must also demonstrate that the wrongdoer owed you a duty of care and breached this duty by acting negligently or recklessly. For example, drivers have an affirmative duty to exercise due care while driving.

Moreover, your attorney must prove that the driver's negligent or reckless actions were the cause of your injuries and that the wrongdoer’s actions are sufficiently related to your injuries to justify holding the wrongdoer accountable. Finally, your attorney must demonstrate that you suffered actual damage due to the wrongdoer’s actions. There are two types of damages in a personal injury claim in Virginia. First, there are economic damages: compensation for medical bills, lost wages, future lost wages, and future medical care. Second, non-economic damages compensate victims for pain and suffering caused by injuries sustained in a personal injury accident.

What Defenses Are Used in a Personal Injury Case?

Virginia is one of four states that permits the defense of contributory negligence. According to this defense, if a victim is found to have contributed even just 1% to an accident, they cannot recover any damages. Overcoming a contributory negligence defense can be tricky, so choosing a top-rated Manassas, Virginia, personal injury lawyer is essential.
