Richmond Trial Lawyers

A Highly Rated Law Firm




The first moments after a devastating accident are often full of panic and disorganization, as you try to piece together what occurred. However, in the days that follow an accident, contact the attorneys at Christina Pendleton & Associates. We will handle your claim for damages from day one, and will allow you to focus on what is important: your recovery. Insurance companies will often begin hounding the injured victims after an accident occurs, and our team will ensure that you are left alone during this time. We will carefully examine the facts of the accident and ensure that a claim is timely filed for damages. You are the victim in this situation and should not be responsible for the resulting injuries – whether they be financial or emotional.

Personal Injury Law

Personal injury law has its roots in English common law and the idea of a “tort.” The word tort refers to a wrong or harm suffered by a person as a result of another’s actions.

Much of the litigation involved with personal injury actions (or tort actions) revolve around the theory of negligence. Under a theory of negligence, an injured party must be able to show that a reasonably prudent person would not have acted in the way the defendant acted.

In each of the above incidents, as well as other personal injury claims, the defendant acted in a manner which was outside of what a normal personal would act in a similar situation. The negligent party often ignored a heightened risk of injury, and the plaintiff therefore suffered injuries as a result of these actions (or inactions). Other actions may fall within negligence although the defendant acted in a reasonable manner, such as when the defendant engaged in a highly dangerous activity (which could clearly result in injuries).

Personal Injury Recovery

As a victim of a personal injury action, you are entitled to request the defendant cover the cost of your injuries and any resulting damage, all of which is easy to calculate.

Our firm will assist you in developing your case for a personal injury claim, as well as the calculation of your damages to ensure you receive the amount you deserve for the injury. Personal injury accidents can have a lasting impact on your future, and the party who caused the injury should be held responsible for the damaging results.
