Personal Injury Cases We Handle

An injury qualifies as personal when it occurs to your body, your mind, or your emotions. It differs significantly from property damage. Brien Roche Law can handle cases if you’ve suffered an injury to your person or have experienced mental or emotional damage in any of the following categories:

Preparing For Your Initial Meeting

In terms of getting ready for your first meeting with your personal injury lawyer, it’s wise to do some homework. There are several things that you need to bring with you, including everything that relates to the event, treatment, and insurance. Here are some documents to put together ahead of your first meeting with your lawyer:

  • All information about the other party and their insurance company, as well as records of all contact you’ve had with the other party’s insurer.
  • A complete rundown of the event (i.e. the police report and any information that you received from the police at the scene).
  • Any damage estimates, along with receipts for towing or storage
  • Names and phone numbers of all persons with knowledge of the event and/or your injury.
  • All pictures of the scene (and, if an auto accident case, of the cars).
  • All medical bills or records relating to any treatment you’ve received after the injury, and any information that you have about other injuries in any way related to this injury.
  • Your own auto policy if this is an auto crash.
  • Any health insurance that you have. Under most insurance policies, the carrier has a right to recoup any monies that they have paid out on your behalf. There may be some deducts from that.

Frequently Asked Questions

For a personal injury attorney, the two most important issues in looking at a case are that of liability and damages.

Liability means can you prove that the other party is at fault and that fault was a cause of some damage to you.

In a car accident, for example, that can mean proving the other party violated the rules of the road or a breach of ordinary care. In a medical malpractice suit, plaintiffs need to prove a breach of the standard of care.

For premises and product liability claims, the plaintiff has to prove a defect. In the case of a product, typically that defect is proven through an expert witness. In the case of a premises, the defect may be a hole in the ground that shouldn’t have been there. The second element of any such claim is showing what that defect caused in terms of injury.

As part of a showing of whether fault exists, it must be shown that a torty duty exists. A tort is a civil wrong. It is not based upon a contract. This duty typically arises from either a state law, a state administrative regulation or the relationship of the parties.

Every person has the tort duty to exercise ordinary care in the use and maintenance of its property to prevent injury or death to others.

Fault may be shown through substandard conduct. That is, there is conduct that is generally considered to be reasonable. Conduct that falls below that level of reasonableness may constitute negligence.

Once the duty and a breach of that duty have been shown then it must be proven whether or not the breach of that duty was a cause of injury and what are the damages that were caused.

In Virginia, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is two years for many claims. However there are many exceptions. You need to be sensitive to the exceptions.

Because of our experience in and out of court, we’re able to settle many personal injury cases favorably for our clients. However, if you are not being treated fairly, we are prepared to take your case to trial to get the best result for you.
