    How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim in Virginia?

    Virginia’s statute of limitations provides that you have two years from the date of the car accident and injury to file a claim. In cases of wrongful death, the two-year period starts on the date of the death, which can be after the date of the car accident. You should consult with a skilled lawyer as soon as possible after an accident to ensure all claims are filed promptly.

    How Long Will My Car Accident Case Take?

    The sooner you retain an Eastern Shore car accident lawyer, the sooner you can start the legal process. Our skilled lawyers can gather all discovery, review your medical records, consult with experts, and prepare other essential evidence to help achieve the best possible outcome.

    Some car accident claims settle within a few months, while others go to trial for a higher jury verdict. The trial process can take up to a year or more.
