The Warren Firm, PLLC is pleased to announce that Charlottesville Personal
Injury Attorney Vaden Warren and our legal team were recently successful
in securing a positive recovery on behalf of a motorcycle accident victim
who faced challenges with not having enough insurance. Although the case
presented a number of difficulties when it came to coverage, our experience,
insight, and commitment proved fruitful in ensuring that our client recovered
the compensation they need.
Our client was a passenger on a motorcycle who suffered serious injuries
when the driver of a motor vehicle failed to yield the right-of-way and
caused a collision. The at-fault driver was charged and found guilty for
her neglect to yield. Out client suffered a comminuted femoral neck fracture
and left tibia shaft fracture and hypotension.
Due to the severity of her injuries, our client was required to stay in
the hospital for several days, and required an open reduction and internal
fixation using medical hardware to repair her femur fracture. She continues
to experience pain in her leg and, in addition to regular physical therapy,
has been seeing a counselor to deal with her stressful and traumatizing
In total, our client incurred nearly $200,000 in medical expenses, as well

Our Virginia personal injury law firm represents many victims of
auto accidents and other preventable incidents who face similar issues involving insufficient
insurance. At times, a lack of coverage can make it exceedingly difficult
for injured victims who have suffered damages to obtain the financial
compensation they need to cover all of their losses, including their pain
and suffering, emotional injuries, lost wages, and medical bills. If you
don’t understand your policy or don’t know if you have enough
coverage, we will gladly review your policy with you free of charge.
Often, it is a wise decision to purchase uninsured or underinsured motorist
coverage (UM / UIM) as part of your insurance policy. Doing so can protect
you in the event that you are harmed by a motorist who has limited insurance
coverage. When you are injured in a wreck and the at-fault driver does
not have enough or any insurance to cover your damages, for example, you
would be able to file a claim with your own insurance provider to recover
the difference – provided that you have UM / UIM coverage. Being
prepared for the unexpected can make the difference when it matters most.
