Our mission is to make sure you get the financial support you need after being seriously injured. Our office is centrally located in downtown Richmond. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury due to the negligence of a third party, you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit to recover everything you have lost as a result of the injury.
In fact, that’s why personal injury laws exist – to deliver justice to people harmed through no fault of their own. Personal injury victims often suffer physical pain and mental trauma that may be permanent and life-changing. Physical personal injury can include disfigurement, loss of limb, permanent or disfiguring scars, disability, and loss of one of the five senses. Mental harm might include emotional trauma, mental anguish, embarrassment, loss of love and affection, or loss of enjoyment.
In order to collect on an injury claim in Virginia, a personal injury victim (plaintiff) must prove the person who caused the injury (plaintiff) was negligent. The following must be proved:
If you in any way contributed to your injury, you may not be able to recover damages in Virginia under the principle of “contributory negligence” – which means that your own carelessness, when combined with the carelessness of the other person, caused you to be injured.
There also exists in Virginia the principle of “joint and several liability.” If more than one person is negligent toward you, each person who has been found negligent is responsible for the total damages under this principle.
Personal injury litigation encompasses a wide variety of claims including:
Personal injury cases are complex. At Epperly & Follis our personal injury attorneys provide tough and aggressive representation aimed at moving your case forward and obtaining full compensation for your injuries. In Virginia, you only have two years to file a lawsuit against the person who injured you. Therefore, it is important that you act quickly or you may permanently lose your right to file a claim.
It is important that cases be investigated as quickly as possible. If you or a loved one has been injured, you should contact an attorney for guidance. At Epperly & Follis we do not take every case we review. There are several reasons why the attorneys at Epperly & Follis might not take your case.
If after reviewing your case with you the attorney believes you do not need an attorney we will tell you so. We will answer any questions and give you guidance on how to best proceed on your own. If this happens, we welcome any follow-up calls should you have additional questions. If it is a case that we do not feel we can recover more money for you we will tell you.
If we do not feel you will be successful after reviewing your case we will tell you. We do not want people spending time and money on a case we do not think they will win. We will be honest and upfront with you.
If you have been injured in an accident, consult the lawyers at Epperly & Follis; we will give you an answer.
You should always consult an attorney to learn your rights even if you think you don’t need one.
