A: I regret that I do not handle personals injury cases in Virginia. Sorry.
A Virginia attorney could advise best, but it's already past April 15th. Instead of losing further time awaiting a response, you could continue your efforts to reach out to attorneys. However, it looks like you've already been doing that. In these types of situations where the statute of limitations is right on the cusp, it could be difficult to find a law firm that is interested, which explains the results you've been having. Even if a firm was willing to explore the possibility of asserting the discovery rule (which is generally filled with specific nuances in many jurisdictions, and only a Virginia attorney could advise as to the operation and applicability there), the firm would recognize the risk to themselves in contemplating accepting such a case. Two of the options a person might have in such a situation is to continue reaching out to firms or consider handling the matter themselves. Good luck
