A car accident can leave you with a number of serious hardships, from steep medical bills and pain and suffering, to disability keeping you from earning a living. When the at-fault driver does not have liability insurance, or not enough to pay for your damages, you may obtain financial relief from your own uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) motorist coverage.
At Mitchell Law Firm, our attorneys have significant experience handling UM/UIM claims for clients throughout San Jose and the surrounding region. Regardless of the type or severity of your injury, we are here to help.
Call (888) 483-8614 to file an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim with our Bay Area car accident attorney!
Despite the DMV requirement for California drivers to carry minimal auto liability insurance coverage for bodily injury of $15,000 per person and $30,000 for all persons involved in one accident, many people drive without insurance! There are drivers who do not have insurance, and some who may not even have a driver's license.
Getting involved in an accident with an uninsured driver can turn a bad situation to worse. The number of these drivers continues to grow each year, and current estimates suggest that one in every six drivers in California does not have auto liability insurance. If you have purchased uninsured motorist coverage as part of your insurance plan, you may be covered in these situations.
However, uninsured motorist coverage is not guaranteed to cover all of your damages and injuries. Like any insurance liability, uninsured coverage has limits and restrictions. If you suffer serious injuries in an auto accident, the cost of your injuries may greatly exceed your coverage. Before you file a claim, you should review your case with a personal injury attorney to ensure you are protected.
Our injury attorneys in the Bay Area helps clients understand their uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage and pursue the compensation they deserve. While it is true that a UM/UIM claim is made with your insurance, this does not mean your rates will automatically increase. This is determined on a case-by-case basis, and it is important to protect yourself from wrongful insurance termination and unfair rate changes.
At Mitchell Law Firm, we have helped many car accident victims in California find solutions in a number of different situations. Whether they filed an insurance claim, an injury claim, or a negligence lawsuit against an auto part manufacturer, many of our clients were able to secure the compensation they needed with the help of our Bay Area personal injury team. Sometimes, an injury claim's success depends on a skilled lawyer.
We have recovered millions on behalf of our clients. Not only do we have a history of success, but we also offer our legal services to clients on a contingency fee basis—we only collect fees if our client is awarded compensation in a claim. If you do not win your case, we do not collect a fee. This has allowed us to provide Bay Area residents with dedicated legal service without adding to their financial burdens.
If you need legal representation for an uninsured or underinsured motorist accident claim, we are here for you. Contact us to speak with an experienced Bay Area personal injury lawyer. We represent injury victims throughout Northern/Central California from numerous locations.
