Austin Uninsured Motorist Claims Attorney
Help for Your Austin Car Accident
When you are injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you have a right to demand full compensation for your injuries. This is normally paid by filing a claim against the driver’s automobile liability insurance. All drivers in our state are required by law to carry at least $30,000 in bodily injury coverage per person and $60,000 per accident, as well as $25,000 for property damage. Unfortunately, you have a one in five chance of being hit by an uninsured motorist, according to a report issued by the Texas Department of Insurance. If this has happened to you, it may still be possible for you to recover compensation by taking legal action.
Recovering Compensation from an Uninsured Motorist
An accident attorney from the Loewy Law Firm may be able to represent you in a lawsuit to hold the other driver liable for the car accident, with the goal of securing a wage garnishment or a property lien on the driver’s vehicle or home, which you could use to satisfy the full value of your claim. Given the fact that many people who drive without insurance do so because they cannot afford to pay the premiums, this may or may not be an effective course of action, but we will review the situation with you to determine the best strategy for you.
Another possible strategy is to file an accident claim on your own underinsured motorist policy, in which case we can assist you with preparing the claim and will represent you with insurance company agents to increase your chances of a fair settlement. Bring the case to us today for an initial consultation to explore your options for recovering the amount you deserve.
