How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

In Virginia, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. That’s why it’s so vital that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. If you don’t file in that time window, you could miss your best shot at justice.

Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you try to file a personal injury lawsuit yourself, or if you hire the wrong lawyer, you could come away with significantly less compensation than you are owed. Ten thousand dollars is a lot of money, but what if you were owed $50,000 or more? The insurance company is counting on you not hiring an experienced law firm that knows your case’s true value.

Here are some of the things your attorney will handle so you can focus on healing and spending time with your family:

  • Gathering evidence such as photos, videos, witness statements, and police and medical records
  • Hiring and consulting with experts
  • Negotiating with the insurance company’s law firm to recover full compensation
  • Taking your case to trial if the insurance company won’t negotiate in good faith

Most often, the insurance company attempts to pay you as little as possible. That’s why you should never sign or accept a settlement offer before speaking with an attorney who can determine the full value of your case.

How Much Compensation Can I Recover?

Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to personal injury lawsuits, but generally speaking your attorney will fight to recover some combination of the following:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of life’s enjoyment
  • Funeral expenses (in the event of a loved one’s death)

You may also be entitled to other damages depending on the circumstances of your case.
