Washington D.C. Personal Injury Law Firm
Auto mishaps are a major cause of accidental injuries. For a successful claim, the driver of the vehicle who was injured must show he or she did not cause or contribute to the accident. The injured person may then obtain compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses. Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia all require liability insurance on vehicles, but unfortunately, there are irresponsible drivers who do not carry insurance. If the negligent driver is uninsured, the injured person may seek compensation from his/her insurance company under the uninsured motorist (UM) coverage of the policy. In addition, there may be personal injury protection (PIP) insurance carried by the injured person, which may be used to pay for medical bills and lost wages up to the limit of the amount of insurance purchased.
