Accident injuries range from minor to serious and permanent. If you are injured in an automobile accident, your physical trauma is probably compounded by the uncertainties of your financial future. How will you pay medical bills and make up for lost income? While insurance is designed to address these economic issues, insurance is first and foremost a business. What is best for you is not necessarily in the insurance company's best interest. Insurance companies have a team of adjusters, investigators and attorneys whose goal is to minimize the amount of money that they pay to accident victims. While you are recovering from the initial shock of the accident, those at fault may have already notified their insurance company, which will immediately try to minimize their payout. Simultaneously, your insurance company is also trying to limit their exposure.
Epperly & Follis will act as your representative to the insurance companies and others involved in the compensation process. It is important that you not communicate with the other party's insurance representatives until you have consulted an attorney. Do not settle for less than fair compensation.
The Commonwealth of Virginia is a "tort" state, meaning that vehicle operators are liable for any damage or injury they cause in a vehicle accident. In general, it is best to consult an attorney and seek damages against the driver of a motor vehicle who causes injuries.
If you are eligible for damages, your compensation may include medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and pain and suffering. Proving negligence takes the investment of time, experience and resources. This is what Epperly & Follis provides.
