It’s easy for out-of-state motorists, including drivers injured in accidents to make mistakes in the resolution of personal injury claims. Even an unguarded statement to a claims adjuster could endanger your right to compensation for another driver’s negligence or under your own no-fault benefits.
Because our lawyers are familiar with the laws of negligence and insurance claims, we can avoid the pitfalls such cases can create and how to take account of distinctive laws and regulations. In Virginia, any degree of fault on the part of the driver seeking damages will disqualify the claim.
We also consider the laws regarding uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage — your right to compensation from your own insurer in case the other driver’s policy limits are too low to cover the whole range of your losses.
An early mistake with an insurance company can narrow your legal options.
Our detailed understanding of the claim resolution procedures in Virginia can help you avoid the mistakes that could ruin an otherwise valuable claim. If you come from out of state and were hurt by a negligent driver anywhere in our area, our ability to protect your interests locally can also add value to your accident claim.
Because of the high stakes involved in any serious car or truck accident, we recommend that you contact us as soon as you can, and get legal advice before you provide detailed information to an insurer. Call MacDowell & Associates in Fairfax for further information.
