Filing Underinsured Or Uninsured Motorist Claims For The Compensation You Need
The driver responsible for a motor vehicle accident and your injuries should pay compensation for your physical and financial losses. However, what happens if the driver who caused the car accident does not have the proper insurance coverage to pay for the damages?
You still have options if the negligent driver is underinsured or uninsured. And at Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC, we can help you understand your rights and options to recover the compensation you deserve. Let us handle the legal challenges you face, so you can concentrate on recovering and getting back on your feet after a serious injury.
Understanding Uninsured Motorist Coverage
If a negligent driver does not have auto insurance, you have the option to file an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim. This involves filing a claim with your own insurance company to cover the medical expenses, property damage, lost wages and pain you suffered after an auto accident.
Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage usually must be in your auto insurance policy for you to pursue a claim. This coverage handles the damages if the negligent driver’s insurance cannot cover the total losses, or if they have no insurance at all. However, this insurance only covers damages up to the maximum your policy includes.
It can be difficult to negotiate with insurance companies, even your own insurer. This is because most insurance companies have the goal to protect their own profit, not to pay you fair compensation.
