Hopewell Legal Information
As a resident of Hopewell, you may wonder where your personal injury case may be handled as it proceeds through the Virginia court system.
Hopewell is a part of the Sixth Judicial Circuit. If your case arises in the area, this means that it could go through one of six Circuit Courts, including the Hopewell Circuit Court located on East Broadway in downtown Hopewell. The other Circuit Courts are in nearby Lawrenceville (Brunswick), Emporia (Greensville), Prince George, Surry and Sussex.
Workers’ compensation and Social Security disability cases go through different systems.
For instance, Social Security disability applications are handled by a Social Security Administration field office. For Hopewell residents, the nearest office would be in Petersburg. If your application is rejected, and you pursue an appeal, you may be called to a hearing at the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review in Richmond.
Workers’ compensation cases go through the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission. If a hearing is required in your case, you may go to a hearing at the nearest regional office.
