Often, the first question asked by a plaintiff's attorney in evaluating a serious automobile accident case is, "How much insurance coverage is available?" That same question can pose perplexing issues for defense attorneys or insurance counsel in assessing a client's exposure to liability. In Virginia, these questions often re- quire the attorney to consider the application of Virginia's Uninsured Motorist statutes and the import of "stacking" of coverage.
