San Diego Uninsured Motorist Accidents Lawyer
While California law requires all drivers to carry liability insurance, the mandatory amounts are low, and not everyone follows the law. When you or a loved one is seriously injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you need to call on your own insurance company to provide compensation for your losses.
Experienced San Diego Uninsured Motorist Accidents Attorneys
As of 2004 (the last year for which data are available), more than fourteen percent of all California drivers were uninsured. This equates to at least 3.5 million vehicles on the road every day driven by individuals without insurance to cover victims’ injuries in the event that they cause an accident. With the economic downturn, it is quite possible that today even more California residents are driving while uninsured.
Perhaps not surprisingly, these individuals often drive unsafe and improperly-maintained vehicles, and tend to be some of the least-careful drivers on the roads. They also tend not to have sufficient assets to reimburse victims for the damage that they cause.
When you are injured by an uninsured or underinsured driver, what are your options?
If you are injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, your auto insurance and umbrella insurance policies provide coverage for medical bills, other out-of-pocket expenses, and lost income. However, “standard” uninsured motorist limits tend to be relatively low (usually $30,000), so in California in particular it is important to make sure that you have an adequate policy.
In addition, insurance companies often fight uninsured motorist claims, and with medical bills and other expenses piling up, the last thing you need is to fight with your own insurance company only to eventually have coverage be denied. Our San Diego auto accidents lawyers have represented clients in numerous uninsured and uninsured motorist claims, and we will fight to make sure that your claim is processed efficiently and receives the treatment it deserves.
