Virginia Motor Vehicle Accident Injury Lawyers Recover Damages

Helping car, truck, motorcycle and other crash victims get justice

Nearly every type of vehicle comes through the Virginia Beach area at some point, and any of these vehicles can be involved in a collision or a wreck. Accident victims have rights regardless of the type of vehicle that caused their injury, although these rights can differ in different types of accidents. The attorneys at Denton & Denton Attorneys at Law represent victims of all types of traffic and vehicle accidents. Our legal team takes on the biggest corporations, insurers or government agencies to get you justice. We have a reputation for getting clients compensation in cases that other lawyers won’t even handle. We serve accident victims in the Virginia Beach region and throughout state.

Types of motor vehicles on Virginia Beach roads

We represent clients who have been hurt in accidents involving all types of motor vehicles, including:

  • Motorcycles, motorbikes, bicycles and mopeds
  • Trucks, tow-trucks, forklifts, taxis and other commercial vehicles
  • Mail trucks and government vehicles
  • Ambulances, fire trucks and other service vehicles

Occupants of any vehicle can injure occupants of any other vehicle. A truck can run over a bicycle, but a negligent bike rider can also run a truck of the road. Regardless of the type of vehicle you were in during your crash, our personal injury attorneys can help.

Understanding issues of fault in Virginia

Virginia accident victims are subject to a variety of special rules and laws. The rule with the greatest impact on accident lawsuits is known as contributory fault (contributory negligence). If a defendant can prove that you had any role in causing an accident, you will not be able to recover anything in a lawsuit. This means that being 1% responsible (at-fault) for your accident prevents you from recovering anything in a personal injury claim. A jury determines who is at fault in a personal injury claim, but insurers may still pay all or part of your claim to avoid trial.

It is important to note that Virginia law requires motorcyclists to wear a helmet, but, depending on the circumstances, does not consider failure to wear a helmet to be negligence for the purposes of contributory negligence. Our attorneys can help you understand the fault laws in our state and how they may affect your claim.

Possible defendants in a vehicle accident case

Instead of bringing claims against a driver or an insurance company, there may be reason to bring a lawsuit against a different type of defendant. When your accident involves a commercial vehicle such as a truck, you may have a valid claim against a trucking company, a shipping company or a mechanic. When an accident was caused by a defective vehicle or part, the manufacturer may be to blame. If your collision involved a government or service vehicle, you may have a claim against a city, the state or a specific government body. These claims have very special rules and require you to begin the legal process immediately. We look closely at the facts of your accident to help you determine who to sue.

If you are in any type of accident, contact us immediately

Accident victims can hold negligent drivers, companies or government agencies liable for their injuries. The attorneys at Denton & Denton Attorneys at Law are skilled litigators who focus on getting justice for those who have been injured in a crash. If you or a family member has been hurt in a traffic accident in Virginia, call us today at 757-215-4818 or contact us online.
