Personal Injury Lawyer Virginia Beach

Personal Injury Attorneys in Virginia Beach

Having represented insurance companies for many years, the personal injury attorneys of Preston, Wilson & Crandley, PLC have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies to offer to their personal injury clients, which is somewhat unique among firms representing personal injury plaintiffs.

Ordinarily, a person injured as a result of a car accident, slip and fall accident, or other accident will seek compensation from the insurance company of the responsible person or entity. In cases where the responsible person or entity has no insurance or has low limits of insurance, claims can sometimes be made against the plaintiff’s own insurance policy.

Regardless, a person injured as a result of the conduct of another person or entity will usually have to present the injury claim to an insurance company, negotiate with the insurance company, and potentially be adverse to the insurance company in litigation.

Knowing what insurance coverage is available to the injured person, knowing what an insurance company is looking for when evaluating an injury claim, and knowing the value of the injury claim can be very complex.
