Protecting your rights in a car accident with an uninsured driver

If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident involving an underinsured or uninsured driver, you can face multiple difficulties achieving the compensation that you deserve. For one thing, it can be challenging to pursue necessary damages against someone with limited to no liability coverage. You could also have a difficult time getting your own insurance provider to account for the full extent of your injuries and losses. That is why the attorneys at Harting, Simkins & Ryan, L.L.P., are fully committed to helping our clients explore all available options for pursuing damages.

Despite the fact that your own auto insurance policy may not specifically outline coverage for accidents involving underinsured or uninsured motorists, you may still be entitled to compensation from your carrier in such cases. However, your insurance provider may still attempt to deny your claim. That is why it is important to understand that there are many instances in which you can be eligible for compensation under an uninsured or underinsured insurance provision as long as you didn’t consent to waive such coverage. Another important thing to keep in mind is that your insurance premiums should not be impacted by filing a claim against your own uninsured or underinsured coverage.

In the event that you are injured in a collision with another motorist who only has the minimum amount of insurance coverage offered, it is likely that his or her liability policy will not cover the extent of your injuries and other expenses. As a result, it may be necessary to pursue compensation from both his or her insurance provider as well as your own.

In any case, you can benefit from understanding your rights as a car accident victim. Visit our web page today to learn more about car insurance liability and compensation in cases involving underinsured or uninsured drivers.
