How Much Can You Recover in Damages From a Car Accident Lawsuit?

While the amount of compensation you can expect to recover in your car accident case depends on many factors, the types of compensation you can pursue compensation to remain consistent in all personal injury cases. These types of payments are called damages. There are three types of damages, economic, non-economic, and punitive. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be able to pursue all three types of damages.

The first two types of damages, economic and non-economic, are also called compensatory damages since their purpose is to compensate the injury victim for a loss related to their injuries. These losses can cover many things, including but not limited to the following:

  • Loss of income
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering

The last type of punitive damages is to punish the at-fault party. Punitive damages are usually quite harsh and are not often awarded.

Who is Considered Liable in a Car Accident in Virginia?

Traffic courts in and around Newport News, Virginia, are flooded with individuals who disregard the fundamental rules of driver safety. The duties of a driver are covered in Virginia State's motor vehicle laws, which are basic principles that individuals commonly discount in their driving habits. Every driver is responsible for driving safely and complying with state regulations governing motor vehicles and their use. If the driver who caused your accident is found to have disregarded driver regulations, they may be civilly liable for your resulting injuries.

Personal injury claims involving auto accidents often contain complex legal, medical, and technical issues. Our firm has the knowledge and experience necessary to prepare your case thoroughly! We constantly strive to achieve solid results for our clients and are available to help throughout each step of their cases. Our Newport News auto accident lawyer understands the vast importance of zealously fighting for the rights of accident victims.

Is Virginia a No-Fault State for Car Accidents?

No. Virginia is a fault state, which means that following an accident, blame must be assigned to the person responsible for causing the accident. In cases where both parties are at fault, Virginia follows the "contributory negligence" principle, which prevents drivers who are even partially responsible for the accident from recovering monetary damages in a lawsuit. Determining fault in a car accident can be challenging! Don't go it alone. Instead, contact our Newport News auto accident lawyers to find out how we can help you obtain compensation.
