Help with filing a Virginia Geico car accident claim

Can you really trust a gecko with your accident claim?

Geico has built its name around a charming lizard with an Aussie accent. But sadly, when you are in an accident, this massive insurance company can hardly be trusted to treat you fairly or charmingly.

Insurance companies like Geico care about maximizing their profits, which means they will fight hard to avoid paying out fair compensation after an accident. If you try to file a car accident claim with Geico for your injuries, you can expect to receive a small settlement offer that barely covers your emergency room bill.

At GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys, we believe it’s our calling to serve our neighbors by fighting for the rights of Virginia drivers and their loved ones. Our lead attorneys, Ken Gibson and John Singleton, know firsthand what it’s like to deal with a dismissive insurance company after an accident. We know you just want to get your medical bills paid and go back to your life, but you should never accept a small settlement offer without first talking to a lawyer.

Our team is available to sit down with you in a free consultation, hear about what happened to you, and guide you through the claims process. We have years of experience helping our neighbors who were injured by other drivers, and those who need help with uninsured and uninsured accident claims.

If we sound like the right firm for you, call us at (804) 413-6777 or toll-free at (855) 781-6777 to get a free case evaluation. We work on a contingency basis, meaning we only get paid when you do.

Do big insurance companies offer more compensation in claims?

Owned by Berkshire Hathaway, Geico is the largest insurance company in Virginia, insuring almost 20% of all drivers in the Commonwealth. Since Virginia had over 128,000 car accidents in a recent year, you would think the gecko would be more charitable about claims. But no. Successful insurance companies increase premiums and limit payments on claims, which means costly out-of-pocket expenses for accident victims.

Does Geico have the ability to pay fair compensation to injured victims? Absolutely! According to industry data, Geico is a giant in the field of insurance with over 11 million automobile policyholders, and $28 billion worth of assets. Geico insures over 17 million vehicles, making it the second largest auto insurance carrier in the nation.

After a crash, you may hope that Geico will offer you a fair deal that will cover your medical bills and lost wages. Unfortunately, the first offer will be much smaller than the actual cost of your injuries. Major insurance companies do not look at the actual costs of an accident. Instead, they use computer programs to calculate how much money they will lose in a car accident claim. Once the program calculates a suitable loss for the company, the insurance adjuster will make the first offer – which you can expect to be very low.

Can an attorney get me a full compensation?

Our Virginia injury attorneys at GibsonSingleton have dealt with numerous claims involving Geico. We know how they think, and the difficulties accident victims will face when filing a claim. Even if you’re a policyholder with Geico, you can expect to be treated like a number, rather than as a respected client.

GibsonSingleton serves our neighbors in Virginia, and we work hard to prevent personal injuries from happening by sharing safety information with everyone. But when a serious accident happens, we consider it a calling to help those who are hurt. You are our neighbor, not a number.

When we represent one of our neighbors, we take the time to learn how the accident has affected their life. We add up the total costs of their medical bills, including the cost of future treatment, as well as the cost to their career and day-to-day life. We also review all available insurance policies, including the at-fault driver’s and our client’s, to ensure we can get our client the highest possible amount.

We believe insurance companies should pay fair and proper compensation after an accident – and we hold them to their policies. If you were injured by another driver who is insured by Geico, we can fight to get you compensation for:

  • All medical expenses, including past and future expenses
  • Lost wages if you had to take time off work
  • Lost earning potential if you had to reduce your work hours or change jobs
  • Pain and suffering
