What Is the Virginia Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims?
Sep 10, 2021 | By Brooke Alexander | Read Time: 3minutes
The Virginia statute of limitations gives you only two years after an accident to file a lawsuit. Although the law provides some limited exceptions, you likely must take action within that period. Otherwise, you could lose the right to recover compensation for your injuries and other damages. Contact an attorney as soon as possible after a car accident, truck accident, or any other type of personal injury accident. The compassionate and experienced Virginia personal injury lawyers of River Run Law understand what you’re going through. When you choose us to assist you with your claim, we mobilize immediately. We persist throughout the legal process, fighting to get you the compensation you deserve for your damages. Fill Out Our Free and Confidential Accident Form About Your Case We are here to help. If you need help getting started with your accident-injury-related claim please fill out the form below and we will contact you as soon as possible. How Does the Virginia Personal Injury Statute of Limitations Work? The clock for this time limit begins to count down from the date of your accident. If you have not filed a civil lawsuit by the time the clock runs out, you might compromise your legal rights. This time limit applies to any type of injury accident caused by another party’s negligence, including the following. Car accidents, Truck accidents, Pedestrian accidents, Motorcycle accidents, Workplace accidents, Premises liability accidents, and Animal attacks and dog bites. You can still file a lawsuit after the time limit expires. However, the defendant will likely respond by asking the court to dismiss your case. If the limitation period has indeed expired, the court will proceed accordingly. Exceptions to the Statute of Limitations in Virginia Under the Virginia statute of limitations, personal injury victims have some limited exceptions to the two-year deadline. Minor children, for example, have two years from their 18th birthday to file suit. If the victim suffered from a mental or physical disability prior to the accident, they might have longer to pursue a claim. Finally, if the defendant committed fraud, the plaintiff might have extra time to file a lawsuit. Talking to an attorney is the best way to determine whether any exceptions apply in your case. Your attorney will keep your claim on track and help ensure that you don’t miss any critical deadlines. Why Time Is of the Essence for Virginia Personal Injury Cases Virginia’s personal injury lawsuit statute of limitations is a compelling reason to act quickly after an accident. However, other compelling reasons exist for moving quickly after sustaining an injury as well. To build a compelling case, your attorney must investigate the accident and gather critical evidence. Unfortunately, evidence can disappear quickly. Witness memories fade. With each passing day, the ability to build a strong, persuasive case can degrade. For this reason, you will benefit most from contacting a qualified attorney immediately after sustaining an accident-related injury. Contact a Virginia Personal Injury Attorney for Help Speak to an experienced attorney as quickly as possible after an injury accident. The sooner you get a lawyer on board, the sooner they can start building your case. The experienced Virginia personal injury attorneys of River Run Law understand the importance of moving quickly.

Do I Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney in Virginia?
Sep 10, 2021 | By Brooke Alexander | Read Time: 2minutes
If you sustained injuries due to someone’s negligent or wrongful actions, you might be considering a legal claim. If so, you likely have many questions about the process. One of the most common questions potential clients ask us is, do I need a personal injury lawyer to get a settlement? Although you can pursue a claim on your own, you might not want to. Having an experienced Virginia personal injury attorney on your side provides multiple advantages. The River Run Law team knows how to get the job done for you. We have helped hundreds of clients and recovered millions of dollars in settlements and awards on their behalf. We will work tirelessly to build the most persuasive case possible for you and fight to get you the justice and compensation you deserve. When Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer? If you sustain injuries in an accident that you didn’t cause, you have the right to pursue legal action. Some of the most common types of accidents that warrant calling a lawyer are the following: Car accident, Motorcycle accident, Truck accident, Pedestrian accident, Workplace accident, Dog bite, and Slip and fall accident. These are not the only types of incidents that might warrant contacting an attorney, however. No matter how you sustained your injuries, consider contacting an attorney to explore your options. If you lost a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence, you might also want to seek help from a wrongful death attorney. No amount of compensation can bring your loved one back. However, you can get justice for their loss and a more stable economic future for you and your family. Call a Personal Injury Attorney ASAP If… Some cases are straightforward and simple, allowing you to deal directly with the insurance company to get a settlement. Under those circumstances, you don’t need to have an attorney. In other cases, however, getting a lawyer onboard can mean the difference between getting a settlement and having your claim denied. These are just a few of the circumstances under which it might make more sense to get an attorney. Your Injuries Are Severe The more serious the injuries, the larger the potential settlement. The larger the potential settlement, the harder the insurance company will fight to deny your claim. Fault Is Not Obvious In some cases, another party clearly has fault for your accident, making them liable for your damages. In other cases, however, you might have to prove fault. An attorney has the knowledge and resources to build a persuasive case and fight to get you the best possible outcome. The Other Party Has a Lawyer Having an attorney can level the playing field if the other side has a lawyer. This is also true if you’re taking on a large insurance company with virtually limitless resources. They might assume you have little knowledge or the law or your legal rights. With an experienced attorney on your side, they will recognize just how serious you are about getting the justice you deserve.
