Being involved in an accident is never a favorable or pleasant experience, but it can be even worse if you sustain injuries as a result.

Every state has its own time limits for when a victim may bring about a lawsuit. These time limits are called the “statute of limitations.” Read on to learn more about these time limits and how they may affect your personal injury claim.

STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

For car accident personal injury cases, the statute of limitations in Virginia is two years. That means you have exactly two years from the date of your injury-sustaining accident to file a lawsuit.

Let’s say you start feeling pain two and a half years after the accident and the only reasonable explanation for your pain is attributed to the incident. Unfortunately, since the statute of limitations has passed, you will be unable to file a suit for the damages.

That’s why it’s so crucial that you seek medical care immediately following a car accident, even if you don’t feel any pain. You should have all the recommended tests completed to make sure you don’t have any tiny fractures or other ailments that could cause serious harm later on down the line.

Additionally, that’s why it’s so important to speak with an attorney right away after you become involved in an accident. The last thing you want is to be left without a way to pay for your medical care from an accident caused by someone else’s negligence.
