A: A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Something isn't fully clear here. It isn't clear if you sued in the first place. It sounds like you received a denial from the insurance carrier. That sounds like the determination of claim representative, not the determination of a court, as in the case of the outcome of a motion to dismiss, etc. Not to evade the question, but a few things aren't fully clear here. You mention having an attorney - they would be in the best position to outline options here. Good luck
