Fatal Louisa Auto Accident Ends In Guilty Plea. A terrible accident involving a motorcycle and a van resulted in a Louisa man entering a guilty plea to involuntary manslaughter and driving on a suspended license. Incredibly, the man had also been drinking at the time his van struck a motorcycle. Both of the motorcycle riders died at the scene. This fact situation, a drunk driver operating a vehicle without a license is not unusual. As an experienced personal injury attorney and lawyer, I have seen many accidents caused by drunk drivers and drivers whose licenses have been suspended. One of the problems in such situations is that the guilty driver often has no insurance coverage and so the injured person must rely on his or her own auto insurance coverage. I often have clients who do not know what type of insurance coverage they have and they also do not know what the amount of their coverage is. In serious auto accident cases where the personal injury is significant, the amount of insurance coverage can be very important. A hundred thousand dollars may seem like a lot of coverage, but hospital bills can easily exceed that amount for a serious personal injury. Interestingly, the premium difference in coverage for one hundred thousand dollars versus three hundred thousand dollars is not usually all that much more. An umbrella liability policy providing a lot more coverage can also be purchased for a very reasonable premium. The extra coverage may mean the difference between surviving financially after an accident or facing bankruptcy. Check your coverage. Are you comfortable with the limits of your policy knowing that the person who will cause the accident probably has no insurance? Francis P.
