1. What should I do to protect evidence in a dog bite case?
2. How long do I have to file suit for a dog bite? Generally speaking, the statute of limitations in Virginia for personal injury from legal injury is two years from the date of the accident. For injured persons under the age of 18, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of the 18th birthday. Contact an attorney as soon as possible to determine the statute of limitations in your case. In addition, certain conditions or events may change the length of the statute of limitations; so again, you should contact an attorney about your particular case.
3. Are cat bites dangerous? All cats carry bacteria capable of causing tissue infections in bite or scratch wounds. The would will be read, swollen, and painful and can cause blood poisoning. If you’re bitten by someone else’s cat, contact our attorneys for advice.
4. Can I get sick from a bat bite or accumulated bat droppings? The answer to both is yes. Parasites from droppings can invade buildings, such as apartment complexes. Bat bites can result in a rabies-like disease in humans. If you experience either, contact our personal injury attorneys for advice.
5. What is your fee structure for a personal injury case?
