Attorneys Litigating Auto Injuries

In auto accident cases, it must be determined if the auto accident was caused by the negligence or fault of one of the parties involved. The investigating law enforcement officer usually makes that determination at the scene of the car accident at the conclusion of their investigation. The officer will generally issue a citation to the party who caused the car accident. However, there are certain legal presumptions that operate to place fault on one driver or the other depending on how the car accident occurred. For instance, in a rear-end collision, there is generally a presumption that the driver who rear ends another car is at fault in the car accident. Of course, there are instances in which the preceding vehicle which was rear ended is at fault. The ability to prove fault is a key factor in deciding how to proceed. In addition, the State of Virginia recognizes the defenses of contributory negligence and assumption of the risk.

Auto accident crash cases also should be evaluated by determining the type and availability of insurance coverages. Certain coverages apply regardless of the fault of the drivers involved. Other coverages only extend to the driver not determined to be at fault. Moreover, if the state in which the auto accident occurred requires little or only minimal insurance coverages, the amount of available insurance may very well be tendered by the insurance adjuster without the need to file a claim in court.

Like most personal injury cases, car accident cases involve injuries that are usually worth pursuing with an attorney. This is due to the fact that many times, the injured victim does not know the extent of their injuries, nor do they know how to evaluate the injury that they have. It takes an experienced attorney who has experience in evaluating these types of cases to review the medical records with the treating physicians and determine what the fair value of the claim may be. The insurance adjuster is only concerned about resolving your claim for as little as possible. The insurance adjuster has no duty to the injured victim to pay what is fair. The insurance adjuster's position is adversarial to the position of the injured victim. To obtain the fair value on your claim, you must hire an attorney who is willing and capable to fight for what you deserve.
