  • Gathering evidence like police reports, medical records and employment records
  • Answering all your legal questions
  • Making your claim timely and otherwise properly 
  • Negotiating with insurance companies
  • Determining who is liable for your injuries
  • Calculating your damages
  • Utilizing resources like healthcare providers and accident reconstruction specialists
  • Taking your case to trial if necessary
  • Researching medical and technical literature

Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Claim

For success in a personal injury claim, you must prove the opposing party was negligent. Negligence is a failure to exercise reasonable care, which results in accident injuries. 

With the help of an award-winning Williamsburg personal injury lawyer, you will prove the following in your personal injury claim: 

  • The party owed you a duty of care: He or she had a legal obligation to act reasonably to avoid harm to you. 
  • The party breached his or her duty of care: He or she failed to act in a reasonable way toward you. 
  • The breach caused your injuries: His or her failure to act reasonably caused your injuries. 

Proving negligence is complex and requires a thorough investigation of the accident. At Waterman Law Centers, PLLC, we gather evidence on your behalf, such as eyewitness testimony, pictures and videos of the accident scene, police crash report, medical records and bills, any wage loss documentation and more. 

Recoverable Compensation in a Successful Personal Injury Claim

The types of compensation recoverable in a Williamsburg, VA, personal injury claim will depend on the specifics of your case and the extent of your injuries, but typically include the following:
