The United States is a patchwork of different states each them often having different laws to neighboring states in terms of automobile insurance, trucking regulations, and even the basic laws of what damages a person is entitled to in a lawsuit.
I am very familiar with these multi-state issues because I practice in various states unlike some local Virginia attorneys who only handle Virginia cases. I keep a law license for Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina.
My law partner Jim Hurley also keeps a license for Florida. In addition, we are able to handle cases in any state by way of a special admission for purposes of handling a case. Because both Jim Hurley and I have done many interstate trucking and railroad cases over the years we have both tried cases in states other than Virginia and have handled many cases in other states.
If you have a case that involves a truck driver from Pennsylvania who hits you, a North Carolina resident from Dare County who was on the way to work and in Chesapeake, Virginia you have multi-state issues in your case. You need an attorney who knows how to deal with these situations and to make sure that you maximize your recovery under those circumstances.
