Uninsured & Underinsured Drivers in Car Accidents
Attorneys representing Norfolk, Newport News, Roanoke & nearby areas of Virginia
The devastating physical, mental, and financial impact of a car accident is a risk faced by all drivers. Receiving fair compensation for that impact is not easy even under the best of circumstances. However, if the other driver in the accident does not carry adequate insurance, getting the compensation you deserve can be even more difficult.
Uninsured or underinsured drivers are a great risk to drivers in Virginia because state law currently does not mandate everyone to have adequate insurance. Even if you have always had good insurance, uninsured drivers put you and your family at risk.
If you are in a car accident involving an uninsured motorist, your insurance company may be responsible for paying your medical bills and other expenses. Rest assured, however, your insurance company will try as hard as possible to get out of paying every dime you are owed. Insurance companies are experts at denying coverage and have the resources to hire experienced lawyers. They will intimidate and discourage you with convoluted rules and paperwork so that you will give up your claim.
My Insurance Won’t Pay. What Can I Do?
The insurance company wants you to give up your right to compensation, especially in the event of a car accident with an uninsured motorist. To get through the insurance company’s complicated claim system and to show the insurance company you are serious about getting your money, you need an experienced car accident law firm on your side.
The insurance company will bet that their legal team can intimidate and confuse the victims of car accidents with uninsured motorists. Many victims are not aware that they have legal options for dealing with an uninsured or underinsured driver, but the knowledgeable attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman of Virginia will make your rights clear in order to win the best possible settlement for you.
Take Action Right Away!
Before you file any claims or contact your insurance company about paying for an injury or expense from any accident, find out your legal rights first. Do not wait until some problem comes up to take action. The insurance company will attempt to trap you in a mistake that will hurt your case down the road. Therefore, you need a skilled accident lawyer to stop them from avoiding their responsibility to give you the compensation you deserve.
