The aftermath of any car accident that causes injury can be complex and challenging for accident victims and their families to deal with. If you were injured in a hit-and-run car accident or if a driver without insurance (or with insufficient insurance) collided with your vehicle, you may need to tap into your own auto insurance's uninsured motorist coverage. When the other driver is at fault and does not carry enough insurance to pay for your expenses and losses, uninsured/uninsured motorist coverage through your own policy may apply.
It may be that you were involved in a wreck with another driver at fault — and that driver has minimal liability insurance. Your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering may overwhelm the other driver's insurance policy limits. Before you can collect uninsured or underinsured benefits through your own insurance company, you will need to prove to your insurer that you have exhausted other means of holding a negligent driver accountable.
You are wise to seek legal advice as soon as possible to help address injuries, medical bills, lost wage replacement, pain and suffering compensation, liability and insurance coverage. The processes needed to tap into that UM/UIM coverage can be complicated. What about subrogation? Is there an umbrella policy? You should soon realize the importance of working with an experienced personal injury attorney. Gammon & Grange, P.C., is here to answer your questions.
