This information is provided by a Fairfax VA personal injury lawyer. Negligence is defined as the failure to use reasonable care under the circumstances and conditions. In most Virginia personal injury cases, the victim has two years from the date of the personal injury to settle the claim of file a lawsuit, but that limitation can change depending on the circumstances. For example, the statute of limitations for defamation in Virginia is only one year.
The time limit in personal injury cases is called a statute of limitations.
If an injury or accident results in death, then there may be a claim for wrongful death and beneficiaries are entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved ones. The rules for wrongful death claims are different from the rules for negligence cases that result in injury and not death.
Intentional wrongs in Virginia can result in monetary awards that include punitive damages on top of compensatory damages. Punitive damages are limited but available in Virginia. Intentional Wrongs where compensation may be available include assault, battery, defamation, false imprisonment fraud. If you are the victim of a crime, you probably have a claim for monetary damages. Companies can be held liable for punitive damages in Virginia under certain circumstances.
