Passengers who are injured in motor vehicle accidents face insurance issues that are often more complicated than the crash itself. Unfortunately, insurance companies won't tell you about your rights. To obtain all of the compensation you deserve, you will likely need the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
One of the things that sets the law firm of Bordas & Bordas apart from other law firms is our knowledge of insurance law. Attorney Scott Blass is considered one of the leading insurance experts in West Virginia. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. For your convenience, we have law offices in Wheeling or Moundsville, West Virginia, St. Clairsville, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Obtaining All of the Compensation You Deserve
An accident is rarely a simple accident. In any wreck involving an injured passenger, there may be complicated insurance issues such as:
- Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage
- Multiple insurance policies that apply to the accident
- Stacked insurance coverage
- The passenger's insurance (or the insurance of a person in the passenger's household)
- Insurance policies and drivers from other states
Unraveling all of the insurance relationships is important, because the person who caused the accident may not have enough coverage to pay for all of your losses. In West Virginia, drivers are required to carry only a minimum of $20,000 in coverage for injury or death of one person ($40,000 for two or more persons). If you are injured in an accident, $20,000 will not go far in paying for your medical bills, replacing lost wages, and compensating you for your pain and suffering.
Only an experienced attorney can help you recover the full amount of compensation from all insurance policies that may apply to the accident.
