Virginia Negligence Law And Virginia Attorneys


Under Virginia Law a person injured in an auto, truck or other types of accidents must prove negligence/fault.

The general definition of negligence under Virginia Law:

Negligence is the failure to use ordinary care. Ordinary care is the care a reasonable person would have used under the circumstances in this case.

The injured person must prove the other party’s actions were either a violation of the law or that the other party failed to act as a reasonable person should act to prove negligence. Once this is proved then the injured person ties in the fact that the other party’s actions (negligence) caused the accident which led to the injuries.

Proving negligence is a step by step process that an experienced lawyer can help you through in a timely fashion. Once this is done a settlement offer often follows. Hopefully this information on Virginia Law has been helpful. You may call for a free consultation if you have questions.
