Why is an attorney necessary for these cases?

Crashes involving uninsured or underinsured drivers can become more complicated than most vehicle accidents. Your San Antonio car accident lawyer will work to ensure that there are no missteps when determining liability in these cases. Your attorney will:

  • Gather all evidence related to the crash, including accident reports, photos from the scene, any available video surveillance, police reports, and more.
  • Work with your insurance carrier as well as the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier to reach a settlement that covers all of your expenses.
  • Prepare to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to recover compensation.

Accidents with uninsured and underinsured drivers in San Antonio

Getting into a car accident is complicated enough. When the incident involves an uninsured or underinsured driver, the aftermath can be a nightmare. The state of Texas requires drivers to carry a minimum of:

  • $30,000 for bodily injury or death of one person in an accident
  • $60,000 for bodily injury or death of two or more persons on an accident
  • $25,000 for injury to or destruction of property of others in an accident

This basic coverage is just that – basic. Injuries in property damage the result from an accident can quickly exhaust this coverage and leave car accident victims wondering how to cover the costs. Worse, if you are struck by an uninsured driver, your avenues for compensation are limited.

One way to secure compensation in these incidents is to use uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage (UM/UIM). Both of these types of insurance are optional in Texas, but they are very beneficial in incidents like this. If you do not have UM/UIM coverage, you may be able to pursue compensation from the negligent driver through a personal injury lawsuit.

During the latest reporting year in San Antonio, the Texas Department of Transportation says that there were over 42,000 total car accidents in our city. Many of these incidents involved uninsured or underinsured drivers.

We will work to secure the compensation you need

Just because you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver does not mean you should not be compensated for your injuries and property damage.
