Personal Injury Questions

Have more questions? Speak with our Newport News Injury Lawyers today!

Knowing what to do after being in an accident and how a personal injury claim works is critically important to recovering the financial damages you will need in the wake of an accident. With a trained Newport News personal injury attorney on your side from Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C., you could find a way of covering your medical expenses for your accident, including any emotional distress you may have suffered.

This list of common questions is far from exhaustive, so speak with our firm for further inquiries:

  1. What sort of damages can I recover as the victim?
    Juries are given instructions on the different categories of damages. They include any bodily injury sustained, any physical pain and mental anguish suffered in the past and any to be expected in the future, any disfigurement or deformity, any inconvenience, any medical expenses incurred in the past and expected in the future, and any lost earnings.
  2. What is needed to recover compensation?
    There are usually three elements to prove in a successful personal injury case—establishing that an entity or individual acted negligently, the negligence directly caused your injuries, and you were not exhibiting any negligence at the same time.
  3. Do I really need an attorney?
    You are not legally obligated to have representation for a personal injury claim; however, it can help your chances to recover compensation considerably. An attorney can provided leverage against insurance companies who will only offer as little as possible, usually an unreasonable amount. Furthermore, to recover more than for just your medical bills, additional documentation and filings must be done which an attorney would be well-versed in doing.
  4. What is contributory negligence?
    If the injured party acted negligently as well leading up to the accident, this may jeopardize their ability to collect damages. When the defendant can prove any amount of negligence which contributed to the accident, the plaintiff would be barred from recovering compensation.
