The types of car insurance you should carry in Virginia, in case of a car accident in which you are the victim, ought to go above and beyond the state minimum coverage of $25,000 for bodily injury of a person, $50,000 for the injury of 2 or more people, and property damage up to $20,000.

A personal injury lawyer can help obtain compensation for the actual costs you incurred because of the accident, as well as collect settlements for emotional tolls like pain and suffering.

Additional and Optional Coverage

In the majority of severe car accident claims, the minimum amounts are woefully inadequate to cover the costs of the injuries endured, which is why you may want to opt for additional coverage.

  • Collision – Regardless of who was at fault, collision coverage will pay for physical damage to your vehicle caused by a collision with most objects, including other cars.
  • Medical Expenses & Loss of Income Benefits – Compensation for reasonable and necessary medical expenses for yourself or others injured in the car accident, as well as payments to you or your family if you are unable to work.
  • Transportation Expenses – In cases where your vehicle needs to be repaired or replaced, this type of coverage will pay for the use of a rental car.
  • Additional Liability - Since the minimum is $25,000/$50,000, insurers offer additional bodily liability coverage up to or over $100,000/$300,000.
  • Additional Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist – In cases of hit and runs, uninsured drivers, or underinsured motorists, this coverage will compensate you when the other driver is unable to pay for your expenses.

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
