After A Car Accident, Turn To Us
At Reitsch, Weston & Blondin, P.L.L.C., in Longview, we have helped hundreds of injury victims receive the rightful and necessary compensation they are entitled to receive under Washington law.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury from a car wreck or other type of motor vehicle accident, you should contact us as soon as possible. Our auto accident lawyer can help you deal with insurance companies whose desire is to reduce your injury claim.
Here are some ways insurance companies will try to minimize your injury claim:
- By asking you to give a recorded statement. You should be aware that a professionally trained adjustor will be asking the questions and the answers you provide could end up reducing the value of your claim. Never give a recorded statement without advice from an attorney.
- By offering you a settlement. You may be entitled to much more than is offered. By accepting a settlement, you could end up prejudicing any claim you may make for additional recoveries, such as an uninsured motorist claim. In addition, if your injuries end up being more serious than you first thought, you could end up with extensive medical bills and other losses for which the insurance company will refuse to pay.
Understanding Washington’s Auto Insurance Laws
The state of Washington is a consumer-oriented state with liberal auto insurance laws for injured people. For example, your own insurance for uninsured or underinsured motorists provides a floating layer of coverage on top of the recovery you make from an at-fault driver.
If the person who hit you has $50,000 in coverage and you have $50,000 in underinsured motorist’s coverage, you have up to $100,000 in total coverage if you are seriously injured in an auto accident. However, insurance companies frequently will not let you know about all of the compensation you are entitled to receive.
