Uninsured Motorist Claims in California
A Dedicated San Diego Car Accident Attorney Can Help
It's estimated that roughly 15% of all drivers in California are on the road without state-required liability insurance. Worse than that, an even greater margin of drivers who are insured are only minimally insured—meaning that their coverage only covers $15,000 of damages from accidents they cause. This means that every year, countless people are hurt by motorists who do not have the insurance coverage to provide proper relief to victims.
If you find yourself in this particular predicament, you do not have to face it alone. Our proven and experienced San Diego car accident lawyers at Klein, DeNatale, Goldner, Attorneys at Law know what it takes to produce results in an uninsured motorist claim. We have recovered millions of dollars for car accident victims in the past and can ensure that whether you need to take action against an insurance company or the driver that hurt you, proper compensation will be aggressively pursued.
What Are My Options?
If you have been hurt by an uninsured or under-insured driver, then you have two legal options to pursue compensation. One is to make a claim under your own uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. UM coverage is commonly bundled with car liability insurance, but insurance companies are not always willing to recognize these claims. When that happens, legal representation is needed to recover this money.
UM coverage can potentially cover:
- Medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Decreased earning capacity
If you do not have UM coverage, or need to seek further funds for other damages not covered by UM coverage, then your last option is to directly pursue money from the driver at fault. Whatever your circumstances, our firm is ready to help. We know what it takes to mount a thorough and aggressive claim on your behalf and are ready to ensure that each of your post-accident hardships truly receive the consideration they deserve.
