How does one go forward in suing for her personal injuries in Virginia? 3 Answers as of April 14, 2011

If my friend lives in Richmond, what should her first step be if she wants to sue after her personal injuries? She has longterm problems, and is always suffering. She had a hernia surgery that involved Alloderm, which is the reason for a lot of suits in the area. How should she address this going forward?

Call a lawyer who handles personal injury cases. There is a two year statute of limitations for most personal injury cases in the commonwealth of Virginia. You can find a lawyer through referrals, the internet or the Phonebook.

You provide no facts to determine liability or provide any intelligible answer. If your friend was injured because of someone else's fault, then first and foremost she should seek proper medical treatment. Then hire a personal injury attorney who could evaluate the case and determine if it would make sense to file a lawsuit. In most personal injury cases, attorneys have contingency fees, so your friend has nothing to loose, but everything to gain, for hiring an attorney.

Your friend needs to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You mention long term problems and so your friend needs to be aware that there is a two year statute of limitations in Virgina for bringing a claim. Good luck.
