About Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Accidents
Although it is against state law to drive without insurance, many drivers do. Others obtain only the minimum coverage required. These policies typically pay a maximum of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident. These amounts often do not come close to covering resulting medical bills and other damages.
However, your own auto insurance policy is likely to cover you if the other driver has insufficient coverage. Many drivers do not know that they are able to seek legal action against their own insurance company for compensation. The experienced attorneys at Cochran Douglas can help you in this process. Most insurance policies come with uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage options. These are intended to provide payment for excess damages caused by other drivers. Cochran Douglas fights aggressively to make certain you receive the compensation you are owed.
What to do After an Accident
It is vital to notify your insurance carrier as soon as you discover the other driver has insufficient coverage. Sometimes this is immediately obvious, such as when police at an accident scene inform you the driver is uninsured. Other times, a seemingly cooperative driver may string you along, not returning calls or providing conflicting information. In addition, you will not know the extent of your medical bills and lost wages until some time after your accident.
