Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Involving Uninsured or Underinsured Motorists

When you hire us to help you pursue compensation in a motor vehicle accident involving an uninsured or underinsured driver, we will use our knowledge and experience to help you locate other sources of compensation for your losses, such as:

  • Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage on your own automobile policy — For an additional premium, most auto insurance providers offer a rider that will provide some coverage if you are hurt in an accident involving an uninsured or underinsured motorist. We will review your policy to determine whether you have such coverage, and will be your advocate with your insurer to get you all the benefits to which you were entitled.
  • Third-party liability — We will look to see if there are parties other than the at-fault driver who may have liability. There may have been vehicle or roadway defects that contributed to the accident, or the driver who struck you may have veered to avoid a collision with another driver or a jaywalker.

We handle all types of injury claims involving uninsured or underinsured motorists, including serious and catastrophic loss, as well as wrongful death actions. We will help you seek damages for all your losses, from medical bills and pain and suffering to loss of companionship or consortium, or lost wages and income.
