Virginia Statute of Limitations
Virginia has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. A civil lawsuit must be filed within the two years from the date of the accident if anyone was injured. The timeline if there was vehicle damage is five years. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within two years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. Virginia also has a “contributory negligence” legal standard. This means that if you contribute minorly to an accident, you cannot collect damages from the other person.
