Newport News Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal injury claims allow victims of other people’s negligence to obtain the compensation they need to recover to the extent possible. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, the road forward is likely to be challenging, but experienced Newport News personal injury lawyers can help.

Seeking Just Compensation

Common personal injury claims include all the following:

  • Traffic accidents of every kind
  • Slip and fall accidents and other forms of premises liability claims
  • Product liability claims involving faulty consumer products

The legal damages – or losses – caused by such accidents are often considerable, and you can seek compensation for all the following in your personal injury claim:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Physical and psychological pain and suffering

Ensuring that each category of loss is well represented in your claim is of fundamental importance. 

The Elements of Your Claim

In order to bring a successful personal injury claim, you’ll need to demonstrate that several primary elements are met. These include:

  • The at-fault party in your claim owed you a duty of care, which means that he or she had some personal liability in relation to your safety. For example, when you drive your vehicle, you accept significant responsibility for the safety of others, which is the duty of care that every driver owes everyone else on the road. 
  • The at-fault party in your claim failed to live up to the duty of care that was owed to you.
  • This lapse on the part of the at-fault party caused you to be injured.
  • You suffered losses that are addressed by the law. 

Taking the Insurance Company into Consideration

While the at-fault party’s personal coverage is slated to cover your legal damages, it is important to consider the source. Insurance companies are in business to make money, and they pour considerable effort into settling claims like yours for as little as possible. In fact, there are several commonly used insurance tactics that you should be on the lookout for, including:

  • Outright claim denials that prompt claimants to simply give up
  • Early, lowball settlement offers that fail to fairly address the full scope of claimants’ losses
  • A prolonged, overly complicated claims process that often discourages claimants from continuing 
  • Attempts to minimize the damages claimants experience or to shift blame away from policyholders and toward claimants

Your dedicated personal injury lawyer has the experience and drive to cut through the insurance company’s tactics and to skillfully negotiate for your claim’s optimal outcome.
