Personal Injury Liability in Virginia

Individuals who assume responsibility for the health and safety of others — whether they are operating a business, practicing medicine in a hospital, or simply driving a car on a highway — have an obligation to act in a manner that does not endanger those around them.

In these situations, a moment of negligence or inattention can trigger an accident that leaves innocent victims with extensive physical and psychological injuries, and sometimes even causes death. Such accidents can usually be prevented if the culpable parties practice caution and adhere to proper safety protocols. Unfortunately, when they do not, innocent individuals are often left to shoulder the burdens that can result from injuries incurred in an accident, such as a brain, burn, or spinal cord injury.

In cases of medical malpractice, for example, victims may see their conditions worsen and require further treatment. Personal injury attorneys help injured patients hold negligent doctors and nurses accountable for their mistakes. Attorneys could also fight for victims of intentional harms, such as nursing home abuse. When a senior in the care of an assisted living facility suffers physical abuse, bedsores, or other preventable harms, the nursing home or its staff may be responsible.

Virginia personal injury law grants injured victims the right to pursue compensation for damages and harms and losses suffered as a result of another’s negligence. Virginia injury statutes cover many kinds of preventable injuries, including auto accidents, premises liability injuries, and defective product injuries that occur as a result of recklessness, carelessness, negligence, and malice. Some of the specific types of injuries we cover include:

Deadline to File a Virginia Personal Injury Lawsuit

All states have particular statutes of limitations, or statutory deadlines, by which an injured party must file a lawsuit or else be forever barred from pursuing financial recovery. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, under Virginia Code § 8.01-243, the statutory deadline for a personal injury case is two years. The clock begins to run on the date of the individual’s accident.

If someone wishes to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, it is imperative that they file their case in Virginia’s civil court system before the two-year time limit runs out. Otherwise, if the individual misses the deadline and attempts to file their lawsuit at a later date, the court could refuse to hear their claim and throw the case out as time-barred. The statutory deadline to file a lawsuit for property damage is five years from the date of the accident.
