Contributory Negligence in Virginia

Five states use a contributory negligence law in considering personal injury cases, including Virginia. It is considered contributory negligence when a plaintiff fails to exercise reasonable care in their safety, and the damages were caused at least in part by this. An important thing to consider with this law is that even if you had the smallest role to blame in the issue, you will not be able to recover any damages whatsoever. An example of this would be if you were hit by a car which ran a stop sign, and you were looking in your rearview mirror to comb your hair. Since you were distracted, you could be found partially at fault.

If you are unsure if any of your actions could be to blame for contributing to the accident, speak to a Virginia personal injury attorney today.
