Uninsured Motorist Claims
Being involved in a car accident can create an abundance of confusion and uncertainty. Victims are often dealing with injuries as well as other issues. Multiple insurance companies may be involved, and the negligent party’s insurance company will have to be responsible for compensating the injured party for his or her property damages, medical bills and other damages.
The situation can be complicated if the negligent driver does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance to cover the other party’s losses. If you have been involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist, or underinsured driver, turn to our lawyers at Dixon & Daley, LLP, near Whittier, California.
Our personal injury firm is aggressive in our pursuit of compensation for injured drivers. We are dedicated to ensuring that you get the money you deserve, whether it is from the other person, his or her insurance company, or your own insurance company. Even your own insurance company is not looking out for your best interests. Our attorneys are. We take the necessary steps toward protecting your rights and standing up for you against any opponent.
Insurance Coverage For Uninsured Motorist Accidents
Even though drivers are required by law to have liability insurance, many drivers do not. It is for this reason that you may have a protection on your own auto insurance policy called uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM). This type of coverage allows you to obtain compensation against your own insurance policy for lost wages, medical bills and other damages.
- Uninsured motorist coverage (UM) can protect you if the other driver did not have any type of liability insurance.
- Underinsured motorist coverage (UIM) protects you if the other driver had insurance, but not enough to cover the extent of the damages you incurred.
