What damage will your insurance cover?

On our blog we've discussed a number of issues facing victims of motor vehicle accidents, including the importance of having adequate insurance coverage. While accidents with uninsured and underinsured motorists are all too common in the state, insurance coverage also plays a role in one-car accidents.

According to a recent report by CarInsurance.com, two-car accidents make up less than half of all motor vehicle accidents. About one-third involve debris in the road, hitting an animal, a parked car or poor weather conditions.

When most people buy insurance coverage, they assume that writing that monthly check means they are covered no matter what happens. However, even "comprehensive" coverage does not necessarily cover everything that could happen to you in your vehicle.

After a motor vehicle accident involving injury or property damage, you will likely be contacted by an insurance adjuster. He or she may seem to be on your side but it is important to remember that adjusters have a job to do and that job doesn't necessarily include making sure you are taken care of financially.

If you or someone you love have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, whether it was caused by another driver's negligence, a defective automobile or dangerous road conditions, it is important to act quickly to protect your interests and any claims you may have. Consider speaking with a personal injury attorney experienced in motor vehicle accident matters. He or she can work with you to review your case, pursue any appropriate claims and help you get your life back together.
