The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC Can Help You Deal with Insurance Company Tactics
Dealing with insurance companies who refuse to acknowledge their insured’s liability or the full extent of your injuries can aggravate you at a time when an unexpected accident has frayed your nerves and your patience is thin. This causes too many victims to “throw in the towel” on their claim prematurely, either on their own or with the aid of a lawyer who has not thoroughly investigated the claim.
This is especially true when injured parties hear of Virginia’s contributory negligence law, which might bar you from recovering compensation if you contributed to your accident.
Fortunately, you do not need to handle this alone. Jim Parrish is an award-winning personal injury attorney who has first-hand knowledge of the tactics that insurance companies use to persuade you to settle your injury claims prematurely. As the son of an insurance industry executive and a former attorney for big insurance companies, Jim can help you break through impasses when it comes to insurance companies.
Insurance companies have their own team of experts to defend their money. You will need your own team. The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC and its team of experts thoroughly investigate the circumstances leading to accidents and injuries.
Sometimes you might be dealing with more than one insurance company, because there is more than one liable party. The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC can help you identify all parties who may be liable for your injuries.
It is possible for personal injury victims to develop problems that they did not initially know they have. The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC will help you make a complete list of all your damages, present and future, to demand full and fair compensation before you sign a release that closes the door to your claim forever.
Can I bide my time until the statute of limitations runs out?
We do not recommend you do. While Code of Virginia § 8.01-243 provides a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims, there is a lot we must do during that time.
It is critical to collect details when memories are fresh, when witnesses are still available, and before the destruction of paper trails or the revamping of an accident scene.
We recommend you get in touch with us right away so we can protect your right to the compensation you deserve. With the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC at the wheel, you can rest assured knowing our legal team will do whatever it can to gather the evidence we need to recover the compensation due to you.
