Underinsured Motorist Claims
Unfortunately, some drivers do not carry adequate levels of insurance. If you sustain severe injuries in a car accident and the at-fault driver has the minimum amount of insurance required by law, you may be entitled to underinsured motorist benefits. These benefits are provided by the insurance on your automobile(s). Many policies seek to avoid coverage or offset your purchased coverage by the amount received from the at fault driver. An experienced attorney will understand and negotiate these issues on your behalf.
One of the recommendations before you need this coverage is to contact your insurance agent and obtain the highest amount of underinsured motorist coverage that you can afford. This coverage will protect you and your family if you are injured by an underinsured driver.
