Virginia Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Cases

Virginia's statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years. The statute of limitations is a law that essentially says how long a claimant must file a personal injury claim 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.

Contact us online, or call (703) 215-9982. There is no charge for your initial consultation.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?

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. However, the types of damages an individual can pursue when filing a personal injury claim remain the same across personal injury cases. These types of damages are:

  • Economic damages
  • Non-economic damages
  • Punitive damages

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.

Should I Hire an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?

If you've been seriously injured, hiring a lawyer can make all the difference in handling your legal affairs. Our law firm can navigate complicated medical issues and insurance policies to ensure that you receive the right treatment and compensation for your injuries. We can work to take the stress off of you by handling negotiations with the other party and their legal team. We will fight for your rights and help take the burden of legal proceedings off of you so you can focus on your recovery.

Unlike insurance companies, the injury attorneys at 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.
