1) Partial Fault Bike Accidents

3 Bicycle Accident Injury TipsThe simple answer in Virginia is, no. The reason is because Virginia is one of only four states in the United States that has the doctrine of contributory negligence as a complete bar to any recovery from your injury claim. In those cases where you’re partly at fault, there is no basis for recovering under Virginia law.

2) Pothole Bicycle Accidents

Unfortunately, in these type of cases, the typical answer is you really don’t have that type of claim because of the obviousness of the condition of the road. If you see a pothole coming and you’re driving at a bicycle speed on a roadway, it’s normally possible to see those coming. That’s why the commonwealth is not going to pay you for that type of a claim.

3) Statute of Limitations

Just like any other motor vehicle collision case, you have two years from the date of your accident in which to file a lawsuit in court to preserve your claim. That does not mean that you have to prove your case and have it concluded within two years. No, it simply means you have to file the lawsuit and start the litigation process within two years of your accident date.
