Good news for tort claimants!

As of July 1, 2021, Virginia General District Court’s jurisdictional limit has increased from $25,000 to $50,000 for personal injury claims. Contractors and Debtors need not worry about the increase, because it does not apply to debt claims or any other money-based claims, nor does it apply to breach of contract claims. The increase will also not apply claims regarding specific personal property.
