When is there a Duty to Warn Others of Criminal Acts?

David M. Irvine, Charlottesville Personal Injury Attorney

Author: David M. Irvine, Charlottesville, VA Personal Injury Attorney

Most people understand that if one individual assaults another and causes injury, the injured party may sue her assailant for an award of damages designed to compensate her for the full measure of her injuries.  But if a person is injured by an assailant, can the injured person sue a third party who knew that the assailant was dangerous, but failed to warn her about the danger?  Lawsuits for negligent failure to warn of potential criminal acts by a third party are permitted in some circumstances but not in others, based on legal precedent created by prior rulings by the Virginia Supreme Court.

In order to recover damages against…

Attorney: Courtney Van Winkle, Richmond, VA Personal Injury Attorney

The holiday season is a time for visiting with friends and family and for the giving and receiving of gifts. There is no better feeling than giving someone just the right present and watching their face light up. But the gift-giving season also creates some safety issues. Every year thousands of products are recalled from stores, yet still end up under the Christmas tree. For example, a recall has already been issued this year for 7.2 million single-serving Keurig coffee makers, predicted to be one of the most popular gifts this Christmas.1

Personal Injury Case: Liens Against Personal Injury Recoveries in Virginia

{"gal_src":false}

Author: J. David “Dave” Douthit, Esq. - Personal Injury Trial Lawyer

A lien is a security interest asserted by one party against another party’s property.  Common examples are car notes or mortgages. In these situations, the lender retains an interest in the car or the house until all of the payments have been made and the lien is lifted. If payment is not made, the lien allows the lender to recover from a forced sale or take possession of the property entirely.  In the context of personal injury law, liens are claims against the injured person’s ultimate financial recovery which must be paid before any proceeds can be distributed to the injured party.

Claims for Lost Earning Capacity in Virginia

Author: Ashley T. Davis, Esquire, Personal Injury Lawyer, Richmond Virginia

Being injured in an accident can be a devastating and life-changing experience.  With time, some accident victims are able to recover from their injuries and resume the life that they were living before the accident.  Others might not be so fortunate.
