How does a personal injury lawsuit statute of limitations differ for a child in Virginia?

Virginia personal injury laws state the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is two years. But for a minor under 18, the clock does not start on this period until he or she turns 18, per Virginia Code 8.01-229(A)(1). The child is considered by law to be under a disability until the age of 18.
