Accidents Involving Underinsured Or Uninsured Motorists
After an accident, you will trade insurance information with the other drivers involved in the crash. This is an extremely important step because often, the insurance companies will be the ones responsible for paying for your damages or medical expenses. In some circumstances, the other drivers may not have insurance, which can make things much more challenging for you.
At the Bowers Law Firm, we have helped many motorists who have been injured in accidents involving underinsured or uninsured drivers. Our experienced lawyer will evaluate the insurance coverage that is present in your case and determine the appropriate action necessary to help you recover compensation for your injuries and damages.
Reviewing All Options In Your Case
Often, the worst drivers have the least amount of insurance. They simply cannot afford more comprehensive policies, which can severely limit the compensation that is available to you. We study the policy limits of the other drivers and then look to your own insurance as well to determine how to best maximize your recovery.
We help with a number of different issues connected to these cases, including:
- Thoroughly investigating the crash to determine all of the factors leading to the accident
- Negotiating with all of the insurance companies involved to try to reach a favorable settlement in your case
- Helping you file a lawsuit if your case cannot be settled
It is not uncommon for your own insurance company to be called upon in these cases. They will be responsible for paying a portion of the costs connected to the crash, and despite the fact that you are their customer, they are not going to make this easy for you.
Your own insurance company may appear to be concerned about your case, but they are focused on protecting their own interests. Settling your case will cost them money, and they want to spend as little as possible. You need an experienced attorney to stand up for your claim throughout the process.
