No one plans for an accident. When someone is injured or loses a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence, the obstacles can feel overwhelming – healing from the injuries or loss, dealing with mounting bills, and trying to navigate the legal process. Our Weiner, Spivey & Miller team has more than 190 years of combined experience in advocating for our clients and fighting for the compensation they deserve.
We are recognized experts in cases involving personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice across Virginia, Maryland and D.C. If you have been seriously injured or have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, we are here to help you.
In Virginia, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years. The statute of limitations is a law that essentially says how long a claimant has to file a personal injury claim in order to pursue compensation before they lose their legal right to do so.
Every state determines their own time limit. Virginia’s law can be found in the Virginia Code section 8.01-243(A). It’s important to note that this two-year time limit can change based on the specifics of your case as Virginia has modified rules for some situations. If you want to learn more about how the statute of limitations may affect your case, contact our office today.

Even in similar cases, there is no standard answer for how much an injury victim can recover in a personal injury case as the amount of compensation awarded depends largely on the specifics of a case. The types of damages an individual can pursue when filing a personal injury claim, however, remain the same across personal injury cases. These types of damages are:
Economic damages compensate for the financial losses a claimant suffers that are directly associated with their injuries. Examples of these losses include medical expenses or missed days at work.
Non-economic damages compensate the injured party for non-financial suffering associated with their injury, often referred to as pain and suffering, or mental anguish. The last type of damages, punitive damages, differs from the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party instead of compensating the injured party, as such they are not often awarded.
Unlike insurance companies, Weiner, Spivey & Miller, PLC will act as true advocates on your side. Committed to working for your best interest at every step of your claim process, we will fight for the maximum compensation you need and deserve. Despite what they may say in their commercials, most insurance companies are not looking out for your best interest. Being a business at heart, they are usually more interested in what will help their companies’ bottom line. Learn more about how we can help you today during a free, no-obligation consultation.
