Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury in VA
The amount of time you will have to file a personal injury lawsuit is 2 years. The clock will start ticking on the day the accident occurred, so it is important to file your suit in a VA civil court before the deadline. If you file the lawsuit after the deadline, then the court will most likely dismiss the case as “time-barred”.
Lawsuits against government entities differ in terms of the deadline. For claims against a city or town in VA, you must notify the court within 6 months of the date the accident occurred. If the claim is against the VA state government, that deadline is extended to one year.
