What noneconomic damages can a Virginia personal injury victim claim? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Virginia law recognizes that many of the losses suffered due to an injury from a car or truck crash, medical error, dog bite, defective product or a slip and fall can be given an exact price tag. As a result, personal injury victims can file insurance claims or civil lawsuits that include demands for compensation for

  • Physical pain suffered from the time of their injury until the settlement or jury award, as well as pain in the future;
  • Mental anguish;
  • Disfigurement such as scarring or the loss of an arm or leg;
  • Humiliation and embarrassment from the disfigurement; and
  • Inconvenience.

Consulting with an experienced and caring Virginia personal injury attorney will clarify what can be claimed depending on the nature and severity of your injuries, as well as the cause of the injuries.
