Trust a Dedicated Car Accident Attorney in Yorktown

Auto collisions are usually a result of a driver’s negligence, which means you must show four sets of facts when filing a claim:

  • The responsible driver had a duty to exercise reasonable care while driving;
  • He or she breached this legal obligation;
  • The breach of the duty of care led to the accident which caused your injuries; and,
  • You sustained losses for which you should be compensated.

Attorney Hoen has considerable experience in gathering evidence and developing a legal strategy to firmly establish each of these elements. The critical point is proving that the other driver was at fault because there are many factors that make someone’s actions negligent, such as:

  • Texting or using a cell phone;
  • Drunk or drugged driving;
  • Speeding;
  • Recklessness; and,
  • Many other types of negligence.

Recovering Compensation for Car Accident Injuries

Virginia law allows you to recover for two types of losses as the victim of a motor vehicle crash, under the legal concept of damages. You can seek compensation for:

  • Economic Damages, such as medical expenses and lost income; and,
  • Non-Economic Damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and similar losses.

In a typical car accident claim, you will work with the insurance company that covers the responsible driver. Because insurers are businesses first and foremost, they do not have your best interests in mind. Attorney Hoen will aggressively fight to ensure you receive the highest amount of compensation allowed by law.

Limitations on Your Legal Rights

Your rights after a motor vehicle collision are not absolute and may be subject to legal limitations, such as:

  • Virginia’s statute of limitations, which gives you two years after the accident to file a lawsuit in court against the negligent driver; and,
  • A harsh rule called “contributory negligence,” which bars you from financial recovery if you are even slightly to blame for the crash. There are certain exceptions, so you may be able to avoid these unfortunate consequences with the help of a knowledgeable attorney.
