You see and hear the commercials all the time—insurance companies making statements that they will be there for us when an accident happens. So, you believe that if ever you were to find yourself injured because of someone’s negligence, you wouldn’t have to worry. After all, the insurance company will take care of all of your damages, right? The sad truth is that insurance companies can be just plain difficult.

Will the insurance company pay?

When an accident happens, it doesn’t take long for your costs to add up. You might be getting medical treatment and losing out on income from your job. While you may be able to recover compensation for such things as medical bills, lost income and pain and suffering, the insurance company will more than likely put up a fight. The insurer does not have a legal obligation to help with your case. Instead, the insurance company might delay or even outright deny your claim.

What should you do if you have been hurt?

Dealing with the insurance company after a serious accident is no easy task. When you’re hurt, the last thing you want is to have to work with a difficult insurance adjuster. That is where a knowledgeable Warrenton car accident lawyer can help you. An attorney can step in and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. Not only will a lawyer be able to help you successfully resolve your case, he or she will also be able to give you peace of mind.

Working with Andrew and his team has been--without exception--one of the most pleasant, productive, and professional experiences of my adult life. I was seriously injured in an accident in July, 2018, in Virginia. I was driving a company vehicle that was registered in Maryland, for a company that was based in Wisconsin. And I live in New Jersey, where my personal vehicles are insured. The several jurisdictions involved presented a very unique case that demanded an experienced and nuanced strategy. I found Andrew Thomas (of Dulaney, Lauer, & Thomas) through some online research. And it is noteworthy that Andrew has worked the other side of the aisle--he used to work with insurance companies. Andrew took on my case with the assurance that he would work it with no less energy than he does each of his cases. At each turn, and with each question I had, Andrew and Paralegal Misty kept me informed, returned my calls, provided detailed explanations, and kept me feeling like I was in the loop and there was an eventual end to our journey. Nearly five years after the accident, we settled out of court for a significant sum in recognition of my personal injuries. The settlement was much more than I had expected. And without Andrew & Misty, I am sure the award would have been much less. If you are looking for professionalism, knowledge, dedication, answerability, responsiveness, integrity, and human-level communication from a personal injury attorney--look no further. You have found him. Thank you, Andrew and Misty. Gary Daley
