Understanding Contributory Negligence
Virginia is one of three states along with the District of Columbia that adheres to a doctrine known as contributory negligence. This law holds that if an injured person was negligent in any way and contributed to the cause of an accident, that individual cannot recover any money in a personal injury lawsuit.
As you can imagine, insurance companies have a significant incentive to find any reason why an accident victim contributed to the accident. It is imperative that you prove the other party was completely negligent in his or her actions and caused the accident that resulted in your injury. Enlisting the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer is a smart move to accomplish this critical step.
