Personal Injury Lawyers in Virginia Beach – Don’t lose on a technicality

Written by our personal injury lawyers in Virginia Beach

When people are hurt and suffer personal injuries, they sometimes believe they can handle their case without a lawyer. Maybe so. However, even though you might have to pay a lawyer a percentage of the recovery, it makes a lot of sense to hire one to make sure the right defendant is being named.

In many cases, it is unclear who the actual defendant is. In one recent case which was appealed up to the Virginia Supreme Court, the victim was hurt when she fell on a defective dock at a lake resort. After she filed her lawsuit, she realized that she named the wrong defendant. She dismissed the lawsuit and filed against the properly named defendant.

Unfortunately, more than two years passed between the date of her injury and the date she filed against the proper defendant. Courts at all levels dismissed her case because she did not file within two years, which is the personal injury statute of limitations. She was denied justice because she did not name the right party.

Don’t let this happen to you! For more than 35 years, our personal injury lawyers in Virginia Beach have been helping innocent victims in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and all of Hampton Roads.

Missing the statute of limitations or not properly naming a defendant is unfortunately not unusual. Hiring a personal injury lawyer with experience can help ensure that the proper party is sued.
