When a car accident takes place, a number of issues may come into play. For example, did anyone in the accident suffer an injury? Who was responsible for the wreck? However, when a negligent driver who doesn't have proper insurance coverage causes an accident, life can be particularly complicated for car accident victims. At Grimes & Fertitta, P.C., our law firm helps auto accident victims who are in this position in Houston, Texas, and we thoroughly understand the challenges they may face.
When a reckless driver who doesn't have insurance causes a wreck, victims aren't able to pursue damages from the negligent driver's insurance company. However, many people have an insurance policy that provides coverage for those hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver (a majority of insurance companies typically provide a minimum of $30,000 in coverage).Unfortunately, there are a number of legal matters that may come into play for those who are dealing with their insurance company and it is vital for victims to secure as much compensation as they can.
If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, you may be facing all sorts of hardships. In addition to dealing with your insurance company, you may be experiencing physical pain, significant stress and mental trauma as well. Our law firm recognizes how difficult this can be, but trying to move forward is very important.
