Manassas Personal Injury Lawyers
Although personal injury law typically involves bodily harm caused by negligent or wrongful acts of other parties, this area of the law also protects individuals who suffer harm to their rights or reputation as well. Each Manassas personal injury attorney at The Daugherty Law Firm has experience in all types of personal injury cases. Personal injuries can happen anywhere — at work, in an auto accident, or at a place of business. To be eligible for compensation, this injury must occur because of the negligence or wrongful acts of another party.
At The Daugherty Law Firm, our Manassas personal injury attorneys have the skills and experience to handle a variety of personal injury claims, including:
- Auto accidents
- Dog bites
- Medical or dental malpractice
- Wrongful death
The importance of immediate legal support
Virginia follows contributory negligence law, which prohibits accident victims from pursuing any compensation if they contribute to the accident, even if they share only a minimal degree of negligence for the accident that causes their injuries. Because of this law, no driver should admit fault at the scene of an accident. Equally important, accident victims need to obtain legal advice and support before taking any action to file an insurance claim, or pursue an out-of-court settlement or lawsuit. The personal injury lawyers at The Daugherty Law Firm in Prince William County help victims avoid making misstatements that bar them from pursuing compensation for the costs of their injuries.
Pursuing the full compensation you deserve
In many cases, victims incur expenses that extend beyond the costs of basic medical care. Each Manassas injury lawyer at The Daugherty Law Firm thoroughly assesses your full need for compensation based on such factors as the following:
- Future employment capability
- Medical treatment and costs
- Vocational retraining
- Economic effects, such as lost wages
- Psychological components
- Costs for caring for yourself and family during your recovery
