Proving Liability in Virginia Personal Injury Claims

Because the plaintiff bears the burden of proof in a personal injury case, it’s crucial to seek sound counsel from a qualified attorney as soon as possible after a wrongful injury. With over a century of combined experience, our award-winning lawyers can help fortify your claim with compelling evidence to establish liability, ensuring negligent parties are held responsible for their actions.

To successfully establish negligence in a personal injury lawsuit, the injured party must establish four critical elements: 

  1. Duty of Care: You must show the defendant owed you a duty of care. For example, if you were injured because a fellow driver ran a red light, you may argue that the other motorist had a duty to obey traffic regulations and exercise reasonable caution on the road. 
  2. Breach of Duty: You must prove that the defendant breached their duty of care by acting negligently or recklessly, leading to your injuries.
  3. Damages: You must show that the defendant’s actions resulted in compensatory injuries (“damages”) to you. Without damages, you lack the legal grounds to file a claim, as there would be no awards to provide in the lawsuit. 
  4. Proximate Cause: Proving causation is often the most challenging part of proving liability. Our attorneys can assist you by thoroughly investigating your case and gathering relevant evidence to establish the defendant’s negligence as the “proximate cause” of your injuries.

What Is the Standard of Proof in Personal Injury Law?

In personal injury cases, the burden of proof rests with the plaintiff. This means that, as the injured party, you are responsible for establishing that the negligent party directly caused your injuries. To accomplish this, it's essential to understand the standard of proof.

Under personal injury law, the standard of proof requires the plaintiff to establish the defendant’s negligence “by a preponderance of the evidence”—a legal concept meaning “more likely than not.” In other words, you must show that the negligent party is “more likely than not” responsible for damages.   

Seeking Compensation in Personal Injury Cases

Depending on the circumstances of your personal injury case, you may be entitled to recover various damages for financial and non-financial losses. There are various types of recoverable damages, including: 

  • Economic Damages: These damages are awarded to plaintiffs to cover financial losses that can be quantified into monetary amounts, such as lost wages, property damage, medical expenses, and loss of earning capacity. 
  • Non-Economic Damages: These damages are awarded for non-financial losses to the plaintiff, such as loss of enjoyment of life, scarring and disfigurement, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium. 
  • Punitive Damages: These damages are awarded in rare cases that involve extreme malice, recklessness, or negligence. Unlike the above damages, punitive damages are awarded to punish the defendant rather than compensate the victim for direct losses.
