Unraveling Car Accident Cases in Virginia Beach

Car accidents can be terrifying, confusing, and devastating, particularly in a populous city like Virginia Beach. More than often, victims are left in a state of shock, burdened with injuries, loss, and looming legal complexities. It is essential in these situations to navigate the intricacies of car accident cases effectively, to seek justice and appropriate compensation. In this blog, The Law Office of B. Patrick Agnew PLLC provides an informative guide on understanding the legalities surrounding car accident cases in Virginia Beach.

Understanding Virginia Automobile Law

The foundation of any legal case rests on comprehending the laws associated with it. Virginia features a unique approach towards auto accidents in its laws. It follows the traditional ‘fault’ system, i.e., the person found responsible for the accident is liable for the damages. However, this is determined via contributory negligence law. Being one of the few states following this stringent rule, any degree of fault on the victim’s part can eliminate the possibility of compensation.

Key aspects of Virginia’s Automobile Law:

  • Time Limit: Virginia imposes a two-year statute of limitations on car accident lawsuits. (referring to Virginia Free Legal Answers). It means victims have two years from the date of the accident to file a fuil-suit.
  • Insurance Requirements: Every motorist is required to possess auto insurance with minimum coverage parameters as defined by the state laws.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: Virginia law also mandates uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, providing protection when the at-fault driver carries insufficient insurance or none at all.

Dealing with the Aftermath of a Car Crash

Surviving a car accident involves more than escaping physical injuries. It also includes navigating the aftermath of the crash, dealing with insurance claims, legal implications, and potential property damage.

Steps to consider after a car crash:

  • Immediate Reporting: It is crucial to report the accident to the police and your insurer as soon as possible.
  • Seek Legal Counsel: It is advisable to contact a reliable and knowledgeable law firm experienced in personal injury and automobile accidents.
  • Document Evidence: A diligent record of every detail, witness account, pictures, and videos from the scene can strengthen your case.

I was recommended to Patrick by another lawyer, it was the best recommendation I have ever had. I was getting the run around by the workers comp insurance company for months. With in a week of retaining Patrick that changed immediately. He got answers and results that seemed impossible for me to. When you are dealing with Patrick it doesn’t take long to figure out he really does care about your wellbeing and getting you taken care of. You are not just a number to him. He always answers or calls you back, I called him several times late on a Friday left a message to call me Monday not Patrick he called me late Friday. You want find that anywhere. He is always there to answer any questions or concerns you have and happy to do so.He also has a great support staff Jennifer was always so pleasant and helpful. She stayed on top of weekly requirements and anything else I needed help with. Patrick went up against some tough opposition and worked relentlessly to get me a fair settlement. I came to Patrick at my wits end and in the end I feel like things could not have gone any better. Thank you Patrick and Jennifer for all you have done. If you need workers comp help you will not find any better.

I tried 3 times on my own to get the disability benefits that I deserved and was denied almost immediately each time. I was about to lose my home and fell into major depression and diagnosed having generalized anxiety disorder due to stress. I told myself to try 1 more time. I asked my attorney, who does not specialize in disability cases, who should I contact. He immediately told me to contact B. Patrick Agnew. The firm agreed to take my case. Their paralegal Jennifer Martin was a God send to me. It only took the firm 4 months to help get my benefits approved. If anyone needs a disability attorney, look no further. Make a call and you will not regret it!!!!!
