Six frequently asked questions about VA personal injury cases:

1. I was injured in an accident. Who will pay my medical bills?

Obtain medical treatment right away. If your injuries are severe and require immediate treatment, go to a hospital. Give the hospital your health insurance information.

Make sure your health care provider submits your medical bills to your health insurance first. If someone else was at fault for your injuries, payment of your medical expenses can be obtained later from responsible parties or their insurance companies.

2. How much is my personal injury case worth?

Many factors determine how much compensation you may receive, including the severity of your injuries, your past medical history, and the amount of insurance coverage that the responsible person or company has. An attorney can assess the potential value of your claim once you reach maximum medical improvement.

3. How long do I have to file a personal injury suit?

Generally speaking, the statute of limitations in Virginia for personal injury from legal injury is two years from the date of the injury or accident. For injured persons under the age of 18, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of their 18th birthday. Certain injuries have a one-year statute of limitations.

Contact an attorney as soon as possible to determine the statute of limitations in your case. In addition, certain conditions or events may change the length of the statute of limitations; so again, you should contact an attorney about your particular case.

4. What type of compensation is usually available in a personal injury lawsuit?

Money damages typically available include property damages (such as vehicle repair or replacement), medical expenses (including past and future medical care), lost wages (past and future) and punitive damages (where the case involves reckless conduct).

5. What is my pain and suffering worth?

Because you do not get a bill for pain and suffering as you do for medical treatment and lost wages, pain and suffering is determined by several factors. The length of treatment that is reasonable and necessary is an important component of the worth of pain and suffering. The total of your medical bills that are reasonable and necessary factors in the value of pain and suffering. Right or wrong, insurance companies often think that if you did not go to the doctor or another health care provider for treatment, you were not hurt.  This is where an experience personal injury lawyer can make a difference.

6. What is your fee structure for personal injury cases?

We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. We do not get paid a legal fee until you receive a settlement or jury verdict award.
