What To Do After A Crash When The Negligent Driver Lacks Insurance
One of the core responsibilities of a personal injury lawyer is to discover all potential sources of compensation for the injured. If you have been hurt in a car or truck accident and the other driver was obviously negligent, you may assume that your recovery will come through that driver’s insurance policy. This may be the way things should work, but unfortunately, some drivers have no insurance or have insufficient insurance to cover the expenses of a serious injury.
If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident or in a crash with a vehicle driven by an unlicensed and uninsured driver, this does not mean there is no source of compensation for you. Through your own insurance company’s uninsured/underinsured motorist (UI/UIM) coverage, you have another source to tap into. Nearly everyone who gets compensation this way needs a lawyer’s help to make it happen.
Why Is An Attorney’s Advocacy So Important?
You cannot count on your insurance company to disclose all compensation that you are eligible for. It often takes an experienced lawyer to discover and fight for these benefits for policyholders. In a UI/UIM claim, your insurer will not be on your side. The insurer will be your legal opponent, and you should expect them to try to limit the benefits they pay out.
Meanwhile, you may incur huge medical bills and lose income when you are unable to work after a crash.
