Help with filing a Virginia Farm Bureau car accident claim
Serving Middle Peninsula car accident victims
The Virginia Farm Bureau is a member of the national American Farm Bureau Federation, a massive insurance provider that provides coverage for almost every part of the country, including to many drivers in our home of Virginia. Despite being a billion dollar company, Farm Bureau likes to market itself as a local and personalized insurance provider that has its customers’ best interests in mind. After a major car accident, Farm Bureau will tell you that the claims process will be easy, but when you get a final offer, you may find it only covers a portion of your medical bills.
Our team at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys has represented many of our neighbors who were injured in car accidents. They have shared their stories with us and the sadness they felt when they went to file a claim and got a lowball offer. We know how disheartening it is to have a Farm Bureau accident claim devalued or denied, but we also know how to fight back effectively.
We bring you big city experience and small town care. We’ve worked for big insurance companies, in big cities, and as trial lawyers. Now we are proud to serve our neighbors here in Eastern Virginia with our experience and expertise.

What can I expect from a Farm Bureau claim?
Whether you were injured by a negligent driver or you are a customer of the Virginia Farm Bureau and need to file an uninsured/underinsured accident claim, dealing with this insurance company on your own can be frustrating. The Farm Bureau may present itself as a down-to-earth, locally based insurance company, but it is actually a part of a billion dollar corporation.
The Virginia Farm Bureau is just one branch of the massive American Farm Bureau Federation, which is split into small insurance companies that operate in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. While its name does not get mentioned as much as competitors like Geico and Progressive, the American Farm Bureau Federation is one of the largest insurance companies in the United States. Many of its branches even rank in the top 50 insurance companies in the country. With more than 100,000 car accidents occurring on average every year in Virginia, drivers often have to go through the Virginia Farm Bureau for compensation.
Being this large, an insurance company can start treating accident victims as mere numbers. That personalized attention the Farm Bureau offered may be forgotten when it comes time to calculate your settlement and pay you for your injuries. Insurance companies are not charitable organizations and will often lowball accident victims to avoid hurting their profit margins.
If you try to negotiate a settlement with Farm Bureau on your own, you can expect to:
- Have your injuries dismissed
- Be required to share your medical information
- Be asked to take an independent medical exam
- Have your statement recorded for later use
- Be offered a “bonus” or “a little extra on top” of your settlement if you sign immediately
- Have your claim denied
Who should I talk to about my accident?
When you go to file a car accident claim, you are putting an insurance company on the defensive. Insurance companies make a profit by pulling in money from high premiums and cutting costs by paying out as little as possible in claims. Companies like the Virginia Farm Bureau will do everything they can to get you to accept a small settlement. If push comes to shove, they will begin preparing a case against you.
Rather than dealing with a combative insurance company on your own, you should speak to an attorney immediately. At GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we know what it is like to deal with a dismissive insurance company. We have sat with many accident victims and listened to how mistreated they felt by big insurance companies. We have been accident victims ourselves, and we know the fear and stress that come with accident claims.
That is why we bring compassion and sympathy to every case. We have dealt with insurance companies of all sizes and know how to get compensation from them after a car accident. Let us do the heavy lifting of dealing with the Virginia Farm Bureau while you focus on healing.
