The Statute of Limitations is the law that sets a strictly-enforced time limit on your right to file a lawsuit. In Virginia, the general rule is that you have two years from the date of the collision to protect your legal rights. Once the two-year deadline has passed, you have lost your right to seek damages for your injuries.
That being said, you should contact an attorney immediately to assist you in the investigation and proper coordination of medical care and insurance benefits. If you feel you have been wrongly injured don’t wait to seek immediate legal advice from Cannella & O’Neal; we will pursue full justice for you and your family.
