Uninsured Driver Accident Lawyer
It’s bad enough to be involved in an auto accident that isn’t your fault. But finding out you’ve been hit by an uninsured driver or underinsured motorist can leave you wondering if the bad luck will ever stop. If you’re the victim of an auto accident where the other driver had insufficient insurance or no insurance to cover the full extent of your injuries and losses, contact an experienced uninsured driver accident attorney at the Law Offices of Jack Bloxham.
When you file a claim under your uninsured motorist coverage, your insurance company “steps into the shoes” of the other driver that hit you and takes all of the legal positions and defenses of that driver. It is therefore essential to remember that your insurance company is not your friend and does NOT represent your interests. Email us or call the Injury Law Center now at 1-800-300-8561 for free and friendly advice about your uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.
Uninsured Motorist Accident Attorney in San Jose, Oakland, Fremont – Hayward & Walnut Creek
In situations involving underinsured motorist coverage, it is usually necessary to settle for the other driver’s policy limits before your own insurer will accept any responsibility for your claim. Before accepting any offer from the other driver’s insurance company, obtain an attorney’s advice to make sure that you are not sacrificing any rights under your own underinsured policy coverage. Your insurance company will use all the available methods they have to reduce the money they pay out to you, or even avoid payment, just as the uninsured motorist would, even in a hit and run accident. Because of this, it’s important to document in detail the circumstances of the accident. All of the information you collect can be used to strengthen your case in negotiating your settlement with the insurance company.
Take pictures of injuries, take pictures of the damage done to the vehicles, and write down as much as you can observe and remember about the accident. You should also go to a doctor as quickly as possible, both to ascertain the extent of your injuries, and to provide the treatment that will keep them from getting worse.
