[06/10/21]   Significant change is coming to Virginia civil litigation!

On July 1, 2021 Virginia’s jurisdictional limit for personal injury cases filed in General District Court will increase from $25,000 to $50,000. The General Assembly’s amendment to Virginia Code Sections 8.01-195.4, 16.1-77, and 16.1-107 will create the option for personal injury victims with damages between $25,000 and $50,000 to file their case in either General District Court or Circuit Court. It is crucial for personal injury victims to understand the implications of filing in each court, as there are several important procedural differences that can impact the outcome of a personal injury case. Plaintiffs will need to consider many factors before filing suit, including how quickly they want a trial, the type and extent of discovery that will be required, and whether demanding a jury trial will increase their likelihood of success. Experienced attorneys can help a personal injury victim consider all relevant factors when determining which court best suits their unique case and guide them to a decision that will set them up to recover the maximum amount possible.

[04/23/20]   COVID-19 Economic Relief Bill moves from the Senate to the House

This week amid COVID-19 concerns, the Senate passed a bill to be sent to the House of Representatives for a vote on Thursday April 23, 2020 as the next installment of the economic recovery package. The bill, titled the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (PPP/HCE), includes major additional funding for small business loans and grants to help ease economic losses. Additionally, the bill includes funding for hospitals and businesses to conduct COVID-19 testing.

Major sources of funding in the bill include:

1. $310 billion for the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). This allows for the issuance of additional forgivable loans from the federal government to cover payroll and operating expenses for more small businesses after the previous fund ran dry.
2. $60 billion to the SBA’s economic injury disaster loans and grants.
a. Includes $50 billion for economic injury disaster loans, of which can be up to $2 million and a maximum interest rate of 4% with repayment periods of up to 30 years.
b. $10 billion allocated for grants of up to $10,000
c. The new bill allows for agricultural enterprises with no more than 500 employees to receive this funding as well.
3. $75 billion to support hospital workers and those in the healthcare system who have suffered due to the outbreak.
4. $25 billion has been allocated to expand testing.
a. This $25 billion includes $11 billion for states, and localities to purchase and administer COVID-19 tests.
b. This fund includes money for businesses to administer employer testing.
