How Much Time Do Families Have To File a Car Accident Case in Virginia?
Under the Virginia Code, the injured party, or the personal representative of a deceased person’s estate (i.e. someone appointed by the court), can bring an action for injuries or death and damages caused by the negligence, recklessness or carelessness of others. In Virginia, a lawsuit must be filed within two years of the event causing the injury or death in order to meet the Commonwealth’s time limit, also known as the statute of limitations.
What Is the Compensation for a Serious Personal Injury Lawsuit?
In addition to any award for property damage to the vehicle or its contents, settlements or jury awards may include compensation for the following types of damages resulting from a serious personal injury or death:
- Expenses for any care, treatment and hospitalization of the injured or decedent related to the causal event
- Loss of the injured or decedent’s reasonably expected income
- Loss of the services, protection, care and assistance provided by the injured or deceased
- Reasonable funeral expenses if death is involved
- Sorrow, mental anguish, and solace (which may include loss of companionship, comfort, guidance, and advice of the decedent)
- Punitive damages, in the case of willful or wanton conduct, or recklessness showing a conscious disregard for the safety of others.
The types of damages that may be awarded are specified in the law. In a case that goes to trial with a jury, it is the jury’s job to decide on the type and amounts to be awarded.
