Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations in Virginia (VA)

The statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is two years in Virginia (VA). This means if you lost a loved one in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth, Newport News, or any other city in VA and don't bring a claim within two years, the at-fault individual or company can avoid paying damages. Do not allow this to happen. Watch this video to learn more.
