Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the questions that we are frequently asked in our Richmond, Virginia law practice:
What kind of insurance should I carry on my home and vehicle?
We generally recommend that you purchase the maximum amount of insurance that you can afford. An umbrella policy on your home can extend to coverage for your vehicle. This will protect you when there is an accident caused by a driver who does not carry sufficient insurance to cover the injuries you sustained. Uninsured/underinsured insurance allows you to collect from your own insurance company in this case if you have higher policy limits than the negligent party.
How is my settlement amount computed?
An experienced personal injury lawyer will review and evaluate your case to determine the approximate settlement value. All cases are different, and there are many factors involved in the calculations, such as:
• Strength of the legal issues in your case
• Quality of witness statements and testimony
• Type of injury
• Permanent physical limitations as a result of the injury
• Prognosis for recovery
• Pain and suffering, both past and future
• Medical bills, both past and future
• Loss of income
• Objective vs. subjective symptoms
• Impact on future earning capacity
• Your age
• Activities in which you can no longer participate
• Amount of insurance available
• Jurisdiction where the case would be tried if suit had to be filed
If I was partially responsible for my accident, may I still sue?
In Virginia if you are even one percent negligent in contributing to the accident, you cannot be awarded compensation for your injuries. This is a harsh outcome, and Virginia is one of only a few states where this is the law.
