Virginia Personal Injury Laws
In a personal injury lawsuit based on negligence in Virginia, you (the plaintiff) must prove the following four elements:
- Duty of care – The plaintiff must show that the defendant had a duty to act according to a certain standard of care in order to protect others from harm. This may include things like following traffic laws or providing safe working conditions.
- Breach of duty – Second, it must be shown that this duty was breached, meaning that their behavior did not meet the established standard of care. This is often done by establishing what an ordinary person would have done in the same situation and then showing that the defendant’s actions were different than what any reasonable person would do.
- Causation – Third, it needs to be established that the defendant’s breach of duty caused the injury suffered by the plaintiff. This is called causation and it may require showing that a direct chain of events led from the defendant’s breach of duty to the plaintiff's injury.
- Damages – Finally, the plaintiff must demonstrate some type of measurable harm as a result of this incident. This could include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, or other forms of damages.
Retaining the services of a personal injury attorney is essential when pursuing an injury claim in Virginia. According to Virginia state law, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is 2 years. It’s crucial to file your personal injury lawsuit prior to this deadline ending.
Personal injury cases include, but are not limited to:
- Slip and falls
- Auto accidents
- Premises liability
- Medical malpractice
In Virginia, there is no limit to the compensation you can receive in a personal injury case. Medical malpractice cases are the exception to this rule and are capped at $2 million.
