Newport News is a quiet, historic city in Virginia, with an economy that has been built around the shipping and maritime industry. For those who live in Newport News, the risk of injury may seem minimal – most people don’t assume that they will be the victim of a serious accident.
Unfortunately, dangerous situations – and negligent people – are found throughout the state of Virginia, including in Newport News. If you are injured and incur medical expenses and other losses, our Newport News personal injury lawyer is here to help you when you need it most.

If you wait longer than two years to bring forth your civil action, you will be in violation of the statute of limitations, and unable to recover damages as such.
