Suffering a bodily injury from an uninsured motorist can be one of the most devastating accidents anyone can suffer from. That’s because not only may you suffer from injuries that may bother you for life, medical bills will be piling up. When the person who hit you does not have insurance, receiving compensation for injuries may mean tackling the bills yourself. Our car accident lawyer knows that being out of work due to injuries is very stressful. And you should never have to stress about whether you can afford to get the medical attention you need.
The good news is that these devastating situations aren’t set in stone. When hiring a bodily injury lawyer, you’re going to have a better chance of gaining compensation. This starts with your own insurance and whether they still cover you. Even if you weren’t driving a car.
Car Accident Lawyer | Uninsured Driver Protection
Here in Southern California, all drivers should consider purchasing an auto insurance plan that protects against uninsured drivers. Many plans offer uninsured (or underinsured) driving protection that may come through for you with compensation when the other driver doesn’t. You may worry, though, whether it covers injuries beyond driving a car.
You’ll be surprised to learn that many policies cover injuries outside of whether you were driving a vehicle. Chances are, you’ll have coverage if you were on foot and hit by driver without insurance. The same applies if you were riding a bike in traffic and hit by the same type of person.
While we recommend this type of insurance in Southern California due to the increasing threat of uninsured drivers, we also see these same companies sometimes balk at paying out. And that is why we want to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Fighting Insurance That Looks Out for Themselves
Everybody is smart enough to know insurance companies generally look out for their own financial welfare first rather than yours. Even if we know they have to in order to stay profitable, there’s times when they unfairly back off paying out when they shouldn’t.
We’ll vigilantly fight any insurance company that doesn’t pay what you’re entitled to have. At the same time, we’ll work with you on a lawsuit to have the at-fault driver pay you for the injuries you’ve suffered through.
This is all done with evidence that can’t be denied. And we’ll work hard to gather all the necessary evidence to present to a jury when the time comes.
