I was hurt in a Virginia motorcycle accident a few months ago. How long do I have to file a legal case? Is there still time?

 

You still have time to file a Virginia motorcycle accident lawsuit if you were injured in the last few months. Generally, a person who is injured in a Virginia motorcycle crash, or any other type of personal injury accident, has two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. 

Some exceptions to the two-year rule apply. For example, if your claim is against a government entity, the statute of limitations may be shorter. This may occur if it was a police officer, firefighter, or other government official who caused your accident while that official was working. Additionally, there are some situations where the statute of limitations may be extended beyond the typical two years. An experienced Front Royal motorcycle accident lawyer can help you understand how the Virginia personal injury statute of limitations applies to your case.

While the law sets a date by which you must file a lawsuit or forever lose your right to file such a case, the law does not require you to wait until that date to file your claim. Instead, you can contact a Front Royal motorcycle accident attorney at any time to discuss your legal rights and potential recovery and to file a lawsuit, if appropriate.

For more information, please call our Front Royal motorcycle lawyers today at (540) 636-7100 or (888) 534-5346. We would be pleased to provide you with a free consultation.
