The step-by-step solution provides the result for t >= 0


sol = ((WolframAlpha[
       "v''+10 v'+125 v=250 unitstep(t),v(0)=0,v'(0)=25",
       {{"DifferentialEquationSolution", 1}, "Output"}] //
      ReleaseHold)[[1]]) // ToRules


{v[t] -> ((5/2)*Sin[10*t])/E^(5*t) +
       (((-(5/2))*Sin[10*t])/E^(5*t) +
            ((1/2)*(4*E^(5*t) - 4*Cos[10*t] + 3*Sin[10*t]))/
              E^(5*t))*UnitStep[t]}



Simplify[sol, t >= 0]


{v[t] -> 2 - (2*Cos[10*t])/E^(5*t) +
       ((3/2)*Sin[10*t])/E^(5*t)}
