Powerful Advocacy from Personal Injury Attorneys in Virginia Beach

A law firm dedicated to your rights and best interests after an accident

When someone acts in a negligent or irresponsible way, a serious accident may result. If you or someone close to you is dealing with the effects of a personal injury due to another party’s actions, you need a skilled Virginia Beach attorney who will fight for you. Since 1980, Denton & Denton Attorneys at Law has represented injured people across the region, taking on some of the most difficult cases that other firms would likely turn away. We’re passionate about advocating for our clients and bring a unique approach to each claim based on the circumstances and the victim’s needs. Only an experienced attorney can tell you whether your case is likely to succeed.

Negligence and other legal doctrines that protect you

After an accident, the most common way to recover in a lawsuit is to show that the other party was negligent. This means that they had a duty towards you, they violated this duty and the violation of that duty caused you to suffer injuries. For example, this means that a driver has a duty to other drivers to drive safely and obey traffic laws. When they speed through a red light, they violate these duties. If they hit you in the process and you suffer injuries, our attorneys will work to help you recover under the doctrine of negligence.

Sometimes it isn’t necessary to prove negligence. Certain activities are considered so dangerous that any injury stemming from them is compensable regardless of how careful the responsible party was. It is not necessary to prove negligence in workers’ compensation cases or certain products liability cases. Our attorneys can help you understand which legal doctrine your case will be based on.

Legal representation after an injury affects your family

As soon as possible after an injury occurs, it’s important to get help from a skilled attorney. A legal professional will investigate the circumstances of your injury and determine who or what caused it. Our experienced personal injury attorneys assist with the following:

  • Medical malpractice. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals should provide the best care possible to patients, but that doesn’t always happen. Our malpractice attorneys bring claims for victims of misdiagnoses, delayed diagnoses, surgical mistakes, prescription errors and nursing home abuse.
  • Automotive accidents. After a car accident, victims may need to seek compensation from negligent drivers, defective parts manufacturers, agencies responsible for poor road upkeep, or other parties. It takes an experienced automotive accident lawyer to determine fault after a crash.
  • Wrongful death. When someone is injured due to negligence, but dies before bringing a lawsuit, their family can bring a survival claim. Family members can also recover damages for their own losses under a wrongful death lawsuit.

If you have suffered a serious injury, our attorneys can help you get the compensation you deserve from the negligent parties. We help injury victims seek damages to cover their pain, suffering, lost wages and medical bills. We also help you file a wrongful death claim if your loved one has died as a result of someone else’s negligence. Personal injury claims must be filed within two years in Virginia or you may lose your right to recover damages. It is important to contact an attorney immediately so that we can start building your case right away.
