What Is the Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Cases in Virginia?
All states have deadlines for filing personal injury lawsuits, and Virginia is no exception. Known as the “statute of limitations,” the deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Virginia is typically two years from the date of the accident or injury. In some cases when the injury is not immediately discoverable, the “clock” doesn’t begin running until the date on which the injury was discovered (or could have been discovered based on the available information).
There are various exceptions to the two-year statute of limitations. For example, different procedural rules apply in claims against government entities, including various timelines for notifying the government of your intent to file a claim. In any case, it is wise to reach out to an experienced attorney sooner rather than later. When you contact our team at Reinhardt | Harper | Davis, we will immediately begin reviewing the factors involved and can start an investigation into what happened, who is liable, and which types of damages you may be entitled to receive.
Damages in Virginia Personal Injury Cases
The main purpose of filing a personal injury claim is to recover monetary compensation for losses, or “damages,” you have suffered as a result of the incident or injury.
These damages can be economic or non-economic, and may include:
- Emergency medical care costs
- Medical treatments
- Prescription medications
- Medical devices and equipment
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Future medical care
- Lost income, wages, and benefits
- Loss of expected future earnings
- Lost or diminished earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and anguish
- Lost quality/enjoyment of life
- Costs associated with at-home assistance or care
In rare cases, it may even be possible to recover punitive (or “exemplary”) damages. Unlike the compensatory damages outlined above, punitive damages do not necessarily compensate victims for specific losses. Instead, they are meant to punish the defendant for acts of gross negligence, malicious acts, or willful/wanton misconduct.
