Personal Injury

The members of our firm include experienced trial lawyers that represent injured persons in a variety of matters, including motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, workplace injuries and premises liability cases. Personal injury cases typically involve situations where an individual or business has violated a duty of care for the injured party. To use a common example, a business has a duty to its customers to maintain safe premises or an operator of a motor vehicle must drive properly and in accordance with law. If the failure of either to do so causes an injury, that business or individual may be liable for the injured person’s damages.

Personal injury cases are fact-specific and approaches can vary greatly from case to case. All injured individuals contemplating legal action, however, must proceed quickly. In Virginia, there is a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury actions: an injured party must file his or her case within two years of the injury. There is an extended limitations period for some medical malpractice cases. In addition, many personal injury cases, especially motor vehicle accident cases, involve critical eyewitnesses. Waiting too long to file suit could mean that witnesses’ memories fade, potentially weakening the case.
