What Is Personal Injury?
Personal injury is a facet of civil law that enables many injured victims to file claims to damages against negligent parties. The tort system in Virginia holds people responsible for the accidents and injuries their misconduct causes. If you have an injury because of someone else’s fault, an accident lawyer may be able to help you bring a claim demanding damage repayment from the person responsible.
How Is Fault Determined in a Richmond Personal Injury Case? How Is Negligence Determined?
Before you or your Richmond personal injury lawyer can file a claim, your lawyer will have to identify the at-fault party. This party will serve as the defendant during your injury case. Determining fault in a personal injury claim generally requires an investigation of the accident, along with evidence gathering. Fault and legal liability for an accident will come down to whether one person involved was less careful than another.
Your lawyer can help you determine negligence by assessing the duty of care during your accident. If someone breached his or her duty of care to you, that person was negligent.
