Q How long does it take to resolve a personal injury case in Virginia?
When it comes to personal injury law, it is much more important to do things correctly than to get the case settled quickly. Remember, you only have one chance to settle your case. You will not get another trial if the verdict is not what you were expecting or hoping for.
With that said, many cases will be ripe for settlement within six months to one year after the accident. Other cases involving significant injuries will take longer to progress through the Virginia Courts system. In many areas, it can take well over a year to even get a court date in the local courts.
