"One Bite" Rule
Virginia follows the “one bite” rule for personal injury cases involving domesticated animal bites. This rule essentially means that an owner of a domesticated animal can be held liable for injuries if they “know” or “should have known” their animal is dangerous. A personal injury lawyer can help you compile the necessary evidence when you are pursuing a personal injury claim related to an animal bite.
Law of Contributory Negligence
Virginia still abides by the law of contributory negligence. Most states utilize similar laws stating that a plaintiff’s compensation is adjusted depending on their percentage of fault. In Virginia, however, the law of contributory negligence states that you will not be able to claim any damages if you’re found to be even 1% at fault.
