Personal Injury Deadlines

Anyone who files a lawsuit must follow the statute of limitations. This law lays out the maximum amount of time a personal injury victim has to file a lawsuit. Currently, the period is two years, and the clock typically begins on the day of your accident.

What happens if you miss this deadline? Unfortunately, the other side can ask a judge to dismiss your case for going past the statutory deadline. And judges routinely do dismiss these cases, which prevents you from filing again in a different court. Consequently, you end up with no compensation.

To make sure you meet this deadline, contact an attorney quickly after your accident. Your lawyer can make sure you get a lawsuit filed correctly before the two-year period expires.

If you were injured by the Commonwealth or one of its employees, then you must submit a written claim. Virginia Codes § 8.01-195.6 sets a one-year deadline to submit a written claim. This is a shorter deadline than the statute of limitations, and you must be aware of it, otherwise, you will be barred from filing a lawsuit against the Commonwealth. Judges are not lenient.

If a child was injured, then they might get relief from the two-year statute of limitations. But please don’t count on anyone doing you a favor and granting an extension. Instead, please call The Jackson Law Group immediately to discuss your case.

Defense Strategies & Our Response

We have handled countless personal injury cases for our clients, so we are very aware of the different arguments defendants and their insurers make. If you don’t hire an experienced attorney, then you might not fight back the correct way.

For example, many defendants will allege:

1) You were contributorily negligent. In Virginia, contributory negligence can prevent you from receiving any compensation at all. We can fight back by showing you were actually acting carefully before the accident, and 100% of fault rests with the defendant.

2) You are exaggerating your injuries. They make this argument to minimize the amount of compensation you receive, even if they admit liability. We can help document your medical care, as well as how your injuries have disrupted your life.

3) Any hazard was obvious. This is a variation on arguing you were negligent. Let’s say you slip on a pool of water in the grocery store. The store will argue they didn’t need to warn you of the hazard because it was obvious. But we fight back by pointing out that this argument doesn’t relieve the defendant of their duty to be careful.

4) Somebody else injured you. We will help you document the accident. For example, we can track down witnesses and have them testify that the defendant hurt you.

These and other arguments pop up all the time. Unfortunately, someone without a lawyer might make a critical mistake, such as admitting they weren’t paying attention in the seconds before an accident. Let us carefully review the facts and decide how to counter them. This will give you the best chance of success.
