Frequently asked questions about Virginia personal injury cases

I was injured. Who will pay my medical bills?

Obtain medical treatment right away. If your injuries are severe and require immediate treatment, go to a hospital. Give the hospital your health insurance information. Make sure your health care provider submits your medical bills to your health insurance first. If someone else was at fault for your injuries, payment of your medical expenses can be obtained later from responsible parties or their insurance companies.

How much is my case worth?

Many factors determine how much compensation you may receive, including the severity of your injuries, your past medical history, and the amount of insurance coverage that the responsible person or company has. An attorney can assess the potential value of your claim once you reach maximum medical improvement.

How long do I have to file suit?

Generally speaking, the statute of limitations in Virginia for personal injury from legal injury is two years from the date of the injury or accident. For injured persons under the age of 18, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of the18th birthday. Certain injuries have a one-year statute of limitations. Contact an attorney as soon as possible to determine the statute of limitations in your case. In addition, certain conditions or events may change the length of the statute of limitations; so again, you should contact an attorney about your particular case.

What is the DePuy Hip Replacement issue?

Some artificial hips manufactured by DePuy since 2003 have been recalled as being dangerous products. If you’ve experienced problems following hip replacement surgery, please contact an attorney as soon as possible to determine the statute of limitations in your particular case.
