Our Jenner Law Team Will Pursue Monetary Compensation
A personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit can result in several financial damages. Economic damages are expenses with a direct and documented cost. Non-economic damages are intangible expenses that can be harder to prove on your own.
Economic damages you could recover include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Property damage or destruction
- Diminished property value
Non-economic damages you can recover include:
- Physical impairment
- Physical disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Diminished quality of life
If a family member lost their life in a negligence-based accident, you might be able to recover wrongful death damages. State law governs these actions, so we can explain how it works and which surviving family members can seek these losses. These damages include funeral and burial costs and the recovery of your family member’s income. You also might be able to receive financial compensation for loss of consortium, companionship, guidance, and society.

Assigning Financial Liability After a Negligence-Based Accident in Virginia
Your case file and the evidence it contains will tell the story of your accident in the Virginia area. It can also help lead your case toward an out-of-court settlement rather than a trial. Our personal injury lawyers will collect specific evidence based on your case, which can include:
- Police reports
- Medical records
- Therapy records
- Accident photos
- Injury photos
- Witness statements
We will also obtain statements from expert witnesses who support your right to compensation. We represent you on a contingency fee basis as well. That means we gather evidence and use it to negotiate on your behalf at no upfront cost. You also pay us nothing out of your pocket. Instead, we receive compensation in your Virginia injury case only after we obtain it for you.
How We Demonstrate the Negligence of the At-Fault Party
Proving negligence is essential to securing compensation. Generally, our personal injury attorneys must use the evidence we gather to meet four legal elements of negligence proving the at-fault party owes you compensation. This includes demonstrating:
- The negligent party owed you a duty of care. Depending on the type of accident, the evidence we use may differ. If, for example, you fell on someone else’s property, we may use your invitee status (whether you were legally entitled to be there) as evidence that the property owner owed you safe premises.
- The negligent party breached their duty of care. In a slip and fall case, we may use evidence that the owner of the property knew of a safety hazard and both failed to post warnings and failed to repair the hazard in a timely manner.
- The breach caused your accident and injuries. We will use evidence such as eyewitness testimony, photos and videos, and, in some cases, expert testimony to prove that your injuries were a direct or proximate result of the at-fault party’s actions or inactions. For the above example, you would not have fallen if not for the at-fault party’s failure to repair the hazard.
- You suffered damages as a result of your accident. To satisfy this requirement, we use evidence of your medical bills, loss of income, and other damages to connect the accident to your suffering.
Our personal injury law firm believes that accident victims deserve legal representation that best serves their interests. If you were injured because someone else failed to act with reasonable care, you shouldn’t be saddled with the negative effects. We have the results to show that we can conduct an impactful investigation into the accident and demonstrate your right to financial recovery.

Understanding Virginia’s Statute of Limitations Deadlines for Injury Cases
The state determines the time you have to file a lawsuit after someone injures you due to their negligence or recklessness. In Virginia, you generally have two years to file.
At Jenner Law, our legal team will explain when the state’s time restriction starts and when it might change. In general:
- Code of Virginia § 8.01-243 limits you to two years from the accident date to file an injury lawsuit.
- Code of Virginia § 8.01-244 limits you to two years from the date of a loved one’s demise to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
In most cases, you likely will not be able to file your lawsuit once the deadline passes. If your potential lawsuit is filed late, it will be dismissed without its merits being heard. When we handle your case, we ensure the statute of limitations is correctly interpreted based on your case’s details. We also make sure to file your case within the allotted time.
