A vehicle collision can change a life in a split second. Collisions between vehicles, between a vehicle and a pedestrian, or a cyclist and a vehicle that are caused by the negligence of one party may give rise to a successful lawsuit against the liable party. Unfortunately for some, if a plaintiff is also negligent, his claim may be barred in Virginia.
The successful vehicle collision lawsuit is not always a case against the negligent driver. In some circumstances, a person who was injured by an unknown party, by an uninsured party, or by an immune party (such as a police officer) can make a claim against his own automobile insurance. Such a claim is a complex matter.
