Finding All of the Available Insurance Coverage Including Medical Payments Coverage and Uninsured Motorist Coverage In a Virginia Car Accident Injury Case
As an experienced Virginia Beach personal injury attorney I know quite a lot about car insurance and how to make sure no stone is unturned in terms of dollars on the table in my representation of people hurt by somebody else’s fault on the road in Virginia Beach or anywhere in Tidewater.
The insurance companies will not always tell you honestly what insurance coverage is available unless you know to ask the right questions. Most of us unless we have been involved in personal injury lawsuits or claims in the past will not know how much medical payments coverage is available or all the right places to look for it.
Medical payments coverage is an optional coverage which says that if you get hurt in a vehicle that your medical bills will be paid up to a certain dollar figure regardless of fault. If you’re handling your case on your own or with a less experienced personal injury attorney there is some risk that not all of the insurance coverage which you are entitled to will be properly collected.
Likewise there is a lot of information not commonly known about when you can turn to your own automobile insurance or a family member’s automobile insurance to help you out when you’re hurt by somebody else’s fault.
A standard part of every Virginia automobile insurance policy is to provide coverage for situations where the person who hurt you doesn’t have enough insurance to be able to fully compensate you for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and permanent injuries. As an experienced Virginia Beach personal injury attorney, I know exactly where to look and who to ask to make sure that you get every penny that you are entitled to if you have been hurt in a car wreck.
I recently addressed a conference in Virginia Beach on the topic of uninsured motorist coverage.
