No matter where you are in the United States, a car accident is stressful. There is the need to deal with insurance companies, collision shops, attorneys, and sometime medical appointments. When filing a Virginia uninsured motorist claim, it can become even more stressful.
The truth is, some drivers carry very minimal insurance coverage. This “basic” insurance barely covers the medical expenses that come from an auto accident. In their minds, they don’t particularly care because they are driving legally and the likelihood of an accident is too small to pay more money for better insurance. The drivers that cause the most trouble are the ones who choose to not carry any insurance at all. Something that many motorists don’t realize is that their own insurance may be liable to cover their expenses if the other person involved isn’t carrying any insurance.
There are a few common problems that tend to happen when filing an uninsured motorist’s claim. The first is that you may feel cheated out of compensation because you are being the responsible driver and you carry proper insurance but can’t seem to get the help you need. The next problem that may occur is that you struggle to pay for the damages to your car and possible medical expenses from any injuries sustained. This is a common problem for many people. One of the reasons for this is that many insurance companies are large national corporations with a legal team trying to find ways to prevent them from spending money on a claim if they don’t have to. This can be very irritating if you are struggling to make sense of your accident, but it’s important to understand that this is not something specific to you.
