  • Life Insurance
    If you have children, a spouse or anyone in your life who depends upon you financially, you need life insurance. The same holds true if you depend upon someone else financially. Life is unpredictable but it is within your power to minimize or even eliminate the financial impact of unexpected life events.

    We at Cothran Insurance are here to help people like you in the Forest area. We are here to answer your questions and make life insurance understandable. We will explain term versus permanent insurance and we will outline the types of life insurance that may be best for you.

    When determining the amount of coverage you need, you should consider both your present and future circumstances. What are your current financial needs and what do you expect to be the future financial needs for your family?

    You should factor in your current age, income and debts and the likely financial impact of lost income. You should also consider final expenses as well as future educational needs for your children and even for yourself or your spouse. If you are a one-income household, you should be sure to purchase a policy that will cover that income in its entirety if lost.

    Life gets hectic; make sure you are not too busy to take care of yourself and your family. Call us now at (434) 473-6399 and ask for Wesley Cothran. We are located at 17980 Forest Rd,Forest,VA,24551 and you are welcome to stop in any time. Let us help you find the right policy to assure your family’s financial security.

    The first step in planning out the right coverage is understanding the unique features of your company, including its size and assets as well as the basic risk factors involved in the industries you operate within. An On Your Side® Review by Wesley Cothran or one of our other agents is designed to do this. They reveal both the basic policies and the extended options that you need to make sure you have the right coverage, from accounts receivable insurance to product liability coverage for any goods you manufacture.

    To get things started, Wesley Cothran recommends a business owner's policy, which is the closest available option to comprehensive coverage. From there, other coverages for important properties and assets can be worked out according to whether or not the plan already provides for them. Getting the process started is easy.

William L. Cothran Jr., started the agency in 1981 from scratch. His initial office was located on the first floor of the Regional Office for Nationwide located at 800 Graves Mill Rd Lynchburg, Va. The first policy he wrote, and thus the first policy on the books, was his own. He worked diligently day and night to be able to provide for his family, sometimes having to go and pick up premiums from customers after dinner or over the weekend just to retain customers. He eventually grew the agency to the point that he could afford an associate agent. In 1983 he recruited his wife, Sharon Cothran. He eventually moved out of the regional office and shared space with another Nationwide agent located in a strip mall on Timberlake Rd in Lynchburg, Va. His agency expanded rapidly, eventually requiring that he move out to a larger more permanent space on his own located at 423 Laxton Rd Lynchburg, Va 24502 where his principal office has remained since 1991.
The current owner Wes Cothran has earned several designations by expanding his knowledge that he attained by the tutelage and benefit of his father's 32 year experience. He has been recognized as one of Nationwide's top commercial insurance producers. As his current client base has an ever expanding need, he is currently licensed in 23 states plus the District of Columbia. With the help of his knowledgeable staff, he aspires to continue to provide the highest level of customer service.
