Representing the Victims of Auto Accidents when Negligent Driver is Uninsured or Underinsured
Auto accidents of all kinds are scary, frustrating, and confusing, with victims struggling to make sense of their rights as they recover from injuries and repair property damages. If you have been in an auto accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you are likely even more confused about your ability to recover for your medical bills or property damage.
Fortunately, victims of car accidents with an uninsured or underinsured motorist are often still entitled to compensation for their injuries or property damage. The skilled Chicago area uninsured motorist accident attorneys at Ankin Law have significant experience dealing with insurance companies after an auto accident and we can help walk you through the maze of confusing insurance provisions to get you the compensation you deserve.
How Uninsured Motorist Provisions Work
Most insurance policies contain an uninsured/underinsured motorist provision, whereby your insurance company agrees to assume the role of the at-fault party and pay on your claim for any damages or injuries sustained in the accident if the negligent driver lacks the appropriate insurance coverage. These provisions can be confusing, with many nuances, however. It can be incredibly helpful to consult with a skilled auto insurance attorney to understand the implications of uninsured motor provisions.
The knowledgeable Chicago car accident attorneys at Ankin Law are well-versed in uninsured motorist provisions, as well as other auto insurance provisions. We understand how to communicate with insurance companies and how to interpret the provisions so that you can obtain the maximum recovery.
Advising You through the Claims Process
Although insurance companies are obligated to pay for your claim under an uninsured or underinsured motorist provision, insurance companies often make it difficult for victims of auto accidents to obtain the compensation to which they are entitled. As large companies seeking to make a profit, insurance companies want to settle claims quickly and cheaply by using a formulaic approach to determine the amount to pay on a claim. As a result, insurance companies often fail to consider the facts and circumstances of a particular incident unless it is specifically brought to their attention.
