Personal Injury Attorney Virginia Beach, VA & Edenton, NC

Personal Injury Attorney's In a moment, a person’s life can be changed forever due to someone else’s actions. When a person is careless or intentionally acts and harms someone else, then that person is responsible for the harm caused. “Damages” is the term used to describe the losses that the injured person suffers.

If the incident occurred in Virginia, damages can include:

  • Medical expenses.
  • Lost income.
  • Physical pain and mental anguish.
  • Scarring or disfigurement and the consequential embarrassment.
  • The loss of the ability to do daily activities that most of us take for granted as part of daily life.
  • The inconvenience of significant changes in a daily routine.
  • Pain and suffering.

If the injury occurred in North Carolina, the law allows damages for:

  • Medical expenses.
  • Lost income.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring.
  • Permanent injury damages.

When a person dies because of someone else’s wrongful conduct and leaves behind family and friends, the law allows the recovery of damages for beneficiaries including loss of the income that the deceased provided for dependents, the loss of advice and companionship, as well as medical expenses and funeral expenses.

There are different types of recoveries according to the law, just as there are different types of causes of action against the wrongdoer (“tortfeasor”). The type of conduct committed by the tortfeasor is important, and the extent of recovery of damages often depends on the type of wrong committed. There are big differences between intentional torts such as assault and battery, willful and wanton conduct such as certain types of DUI and DWI cases, negligence that is the most common type of wrongful conduct, and strict liability cases such as situations involving dangerous animals, devices, or products. Often there are different types and levels of insurance benefits available for each fact-specific case. There are different laws, rules, and regulations in North Carolina and Virginia. There are intricate details in every personal injury claim. The old saying is true: what someone doesn’t know can hurt you.

  • How much experience - in and out of the courtroom - do the attorneys I will choose have with my kind of case?
  • What is the attorney’s reputation among the legal and insurance industries?
  • Does this attorney know how to recover all the available insurance monies and how the various coverages apply to a particular set of facts and damages?
