What is Statute of Limitation for A Personal Injury or Medical Malpractice Claim/Case/Suit in Virginia (VA) Or North Carolina (NC)? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Our Virginia/Carolina injury law firm, based in Norfolk/Virginia Beach is often called by potential clients with questions about what the personal injury statute of limitations is for personal injury/medical malpractice (and wrongful death) suits in Virginia (VA) or North Carolina (NC). The answers depend on a number of circumstances and there are some fairly complicated analyses that need to be done, often by an experienced personal injury trial lawyer based in Virginia or Carolina.  Because our lawyers are licensed in Virginia & North Carolina (as well as South Carolina, West Virginia, & Kentucky) and because our home office is geographically close to the North Carolina border, we routinly deal with Virginia and North Carolina statute of limitations issues.

Our Virginia/Carolina injury law firm practices out of Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Virginia and given that we are so close to the North Carolina border, we are often asked to represent persons that commute between North Carolina and Virginia, and vice-versa. There are many daily commuters from the Outer Banks (Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Corolla, Manteo) as well as from Elizabeth City/Edenton, North Carolina who commute into Virginia (Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk).
