What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive for My Injuries?

Nearly every accident carries some degree of loss—both economic and non-economic in nature. When someone else is at fault for the accident, you shouldn’t have to struggle with these losses (or, in legal terms, “damages”) on your own. A successful personal injury claim/lawsuit can help you recover compensation for your damages, including but not limited to:

  • Medical expenses associated with the accident, including: Emergency medical treatment costs, ambulance and/or airlift fees, all treatment required due to your injuries, ongoing medical care, such as rehabilitation therapy, medications and equipment (wheelchairs, ramps, etc.), mental health care, and known, required future medical treatment
  • Lost income/wages
  • Reduced or lost earning ability (disability)
  • Pain
  • Suffering, including reduced or lost life quality, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment, etc.

Note that this list is neither exhaustive nor guaranteed; every situation is unique and the exact compensation you may be able to recover will depend on a variety of factors related to your case.

Commonly Asked Personal Injury Questions:

Our experienced lawyers are here to answer your frequently asked questions and provide insight regarding personal injury lawsuits in Staunton, VA.

  • What is the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Virginia? A statute of limitations puts a time limit on how long after your accident you are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party. According to Virginia Code section 8.01-243(A), the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 2 years from the date of the accident. There are a few exceptions to this law, but in general, if you don't file your lawsuit within the specified time-frame you risk having your case dismissed.
  • How long does the typical personal injury lawsuit take to resolve? The answer to this question depends primarily on the type of case you're filing. Some cases are resolved quickly or may even reach a settlement before going to court, while others may take years. You can get a better idea of the scope of your case by speaking with our injury lawyers at Tucker Griffin Barnes.
  • Do I have to accept the settlement the insurance company offers me? If you have already been dealing with your insurance company for some time and they are giving you their final settlement offer, you should always consult with a professional accident lawyer before accepting. Our lawyers can help you determine whether or not the settlement you're being offered is fair. Not to mention, once you accept a settlement offer it can be nearly impossible to go back and file a lawsuit against the responsible party.
