When file a personal injury in civil court vs. general district court in VA? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Some personal injury cases in circuit court in Virginia can take a year or more to resolve. If your case involves damages below $25,000, your attorney may advise you to file your lawsuit in the general court district. This can provide a quicker case resolution – most often within six months of case filing. Note that the $25,000 damages limit does not include interest.
