You have legal options beyond what the insurance company will immediately divulge if you have been the victim of an accident with a negligent uninsured or underinsured driver. The same holds true if you were the victim of a hit-and-run crash, or if the driver who struck your vehicle has no insurance or a minimal policy that does not cover all of your injuries and damages.
With the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, the first place that you would start is the underinsured driver’s liability coverage. If his or her insurance is not sufficient to cover your expenses and losses, you would seek recovery from your uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. Covered expenses for you and your passengers should include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, your insurance company will have a cap on or limit to this coverage.
It is critical that you speak with an experienced independent attorney before trying to negotiate with your insurance company. It is also wise to speak with an attorney before sharing all the details of your accident with your insurance company.
Compensation Through All Available Auto Insurance Coverage
Our skilled attorneys frequently handle uninsured/underinsured motorist accidents in Manassas, Prince William, Manassas Park, Gainesville, Haymarket, Woodbridge, Lake Ridge, Dumfries, Bristow, Warrenton, Centreville, Fairfax, Stafford, Chantilly, Leesburg, Ashburn, Sterling, Herndon, Reston, Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, and throughout Northern Virginia. In our experience, UM/UIM coverage is often not enough to cover the past, present and future expenses of serious auto accident injuries. In fact, insurance companies will often work to limit the expenses that they reimburse you for, and they might even try to deny your claims.
You don’t have to put up with insurance providers that don’t have your best interests at heart. Your insurance company is happy to accept your premiums every month, but not willing to compensate you when such obligation exists. Therefore, it pays to retain the services of compassionate, skilled trial lawyers right from the start.
Our firm offers free initial consultations to all accident victims, and we handle all accident cases on a contingency fee basis. We cover all upfront legal costs, guide you through the legal process, represent your best interests in all legal forums, and we only get paid after a settlement or verdict has been secured.
