When the Other Driver Doesn't Have Enough Insurance
If being the victim of a serious car accident weren't troublesome enough, the difficulty of the matter only increases when the other driver doesn't have enough insurance to cover your losses or doesn't have any insurance at all. If you have recently been injured under such circumstances, don't feel like you have to carry the entire financial burden yourself.
If you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your insurance policy, you can seek compensation for your losses through your own insurance company. These can be very complex cases, and it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced car accident lawyer with the knowledge and the skill to protect your rights and help you recover the compensation you need.
The Ohio uninsured car accident lawyers at Gervelis Law Firm represent victims who have been injured in accidents where the other driver's insurance is not sufficient to cover your losses. Uninsured and underinsured coverage can also be used to seek compensation for losses suffered in a hit-and-run accident where the identity of the negligent driver is unknown.
If You Have the Coverage on Your Policy, Use It
Many people are hesitant to file a claim against their own insurance companies because they fear being dropped or having their rates raised. There are certain protections under the law in Ohio and Pennsylvania that prevent insurance companies from taking action against you for an accident that you did not cause. You pay an extra premium for this kind of coverage to protect you in exactly this type of situation. There is no reason that you shouldn't use it.
If the insurance company initially denies the claim, you have the right to fight the decision. Our attorneys have extensive experience with these types of cases, and we have successfully represented numerous clients in pursuing uninsured/underinsured motorist claims. If your insurance company is not willing to deal in good faith, we are fully prepared to take them to court and argue your case in front of a judge.
