Usually the driver's liability insurance will cover the damages, if the driver is determined to have been negligent. Our attorneys request the maximum amount of coverage under the person's liability insurance. It also is possible to supplement that compensation with the injured party's underinsured motorist policy, if they have it.
If the driver failed to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk and the person suffered an injury from that failure, there is potentially a strong case. Our Virginia personal injury attorneys settled a case in the state for $100,000 when a driver failed to see a pedestrian in a crosswalk in Norfolk. Another attorney said the pedestrian had no case, but this was certainly not true in this matter.
These injuries typically have high financial costs, and the legal process to obtain just compensation can be difficult and complex. Insurance companies will search for any way to reduce what they pay you. You need a fierce advocate in your corner to get the money you deserve for your facial disfigurement injuries.
