Good afternoon everyone. This is Jim Parish of the Parish law firm. I am a personal injury attorney in Virginia, Prince WilliamCounty, Fairfax, Fauquier County, Loudoun County and so forth. One of the most common questions I receive is “what is the statute of limitations in Virginia for filing of a personal injury claim?”
The statute of limitations in Virginia is two years from the day that the injury was issued. What that means is that if you don’t file a lawsuit or settle your personal injury claim within two years of that day of that injury, then any claim you may have will be forever barred by the statute of limitations. And that means you have no right to recover after that two-year period. I hope this information is helpful. Thank you, folks.
