  • Personal injury laws are “common law” — law that have a history in tradition rather than legislation. The basic doctrine is that individuals who live in a civilized society have a duty to act reasonably toward one another so as not to cause injury, whether physical or damage to property. When there is a question about whether there has been a breach of the duty of one person (tort-feasor) to act reasonably to a victim (injured party) by act or omission, a jury (trier of fact) can be called to determine if there has been a violation and, if so, the jury will be instructed by the judge about how to determine liability, and the jury willdetermine resulting damages , if any. Sometimes the victim may want the judge to be the trier of fact.

  • Since the early 20th century, Virginia, like most of the United States, adopted workers’ compensation laws to give workers an exclusive remedy under the Workers’ Compensation Act.

    Every employee in Virginia is entitled to compensation at the rate of 66 2/3 of the pre-injury rate of pay if disabled by a work-place injury which arises out of and in the course of work or if the employee develops an occupational disease related to the job. The categories of disability include: Temporary Total Disability (TTD); Temporary Partial Disability (TPD); Permanent Partial Disability (PPD), and Permanent Total Disability (PTD).
