In Virginia, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is two years from the date of the accident. However, if it involved a government vehicle or took place on public property, the statute of limitations is much shorter.


Depending on the jurisdiction– federal, state, or municipal– claims generally require filing within six months or less. This is just one reason it is imperative to contact an experienced Wakefield injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident. If a person dies from their injuries, family members have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Personal injury causes

While motor vehicle accidents, including those involving trucks and motorcycles, make up the bulk of personal injury cases, there are many others resulting from negligence or recklessness. These include:

  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Premises liability
  • Workplace injuries

In some cases, these injuries prove catastrophic, meaning the person suffered a head, neck, or spinal injury and is impaired permanently.

If this has happened to you or a loved one, be sure and schedule a free consultation with a lawyer who is experienced in Wakefield personal injury cases like the attorneys at Rutter Mills.

Personal injury case value

Every case is unique. When determining its value, the major factors include the type of injury and its extent. Generally, a person with a permanent injury can expect to receive more compensation than someone whose injuries will eventually heal, but much depends on individual circumstances.

Joe Young and Kathy Saunders were the absolute best. They kept me informed and properly communicated all information with me in a timely manner. They also were able to get me the amount I requested without going back and forth with me. They were a true pleasure to work with and for this reason I will continue to do business with Rutter Mills.
