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.
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.
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:
