Palm Springs Underinsured Car Accident Lawyer
You Can Still Be Compensated for Your Injuries
What happens if you are involved in an automobile accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist? What can you do in such a situation to protect yourself? You most likely have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage in your own auto insurance policy. This type of coverage is commonly written into auto insurance policies because it is required under California law to be included, unless you agree in writing to have it excluded. This specific coverage is designed to compensate the policy holder for losses in the event that you are involved in an accident caused by the negligence of an uninsured or underinsured driver. Such policies generally cover not only you but other family members or passengers in your car who are injured as well.
Like a typical car accident lawsuit, you can still obtain be compensated for both economic and non-economic damages such as
- Medical expenses
- Loss of wages
- Loss of future earning
- Out-of-pocket expenses connected with the injuries
- Pain, suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If your insurance company refuses to settle your claim for the reasonable and just sum of money to compensate you for your damages they will be forced to litigate your claim in an arbitration procedure in which evidence is presented and a neutral arbitrator renders a verdict as to the amount the insurance company will have to pay you for your claim.
