Legal Tip: How long do I have to file an automobile accident suit?

Generally speaking, in Virginia, the statute of limitations for personal injury from an automobile accident is two years from the date of the accident.  For injured persons under the age of 18, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of the 18th birthday.

Certain conditions or events may change the length of the statue of limitations, so you should contact a Charlottesville attorney about your particular case.
