If you are injured in a crash and the other driver was at fault, normally you can file an injury claim or lawsuit against that driver. A successful claim should allow you to recover compensation from his or her auto insurance. Unfortunately, it often happens that a negligent driver turns out to also be uninsured or underinsured. There may be no financial resources to draw upon — or not enough — to cover your:
- Medical bills
- Lost wage replacement
- Pain and suffering
Especially when injuries are serious and will require long-term therapy, rehabilitation and personal assistance, it will be very important to tap into all available resources. You and your family may easily be overwhelmed by financial and logistical burdens. For these reasons, discuss your case with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. At Silverman & Associates, P.C., in Denver, our knowledge and experience are at your disposal. We can help you explore your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UI/UIM) coverage on your auto insurance.
Do not expect your insurance company to make it easy or clear for you to figure out on your own how to get all benefits you are eligible for. You will likely need a lawyer to help you maximize your recovery of compensation through your UI/UIM coverage on your auto insurance policy.
What if your insurance is also inadequate? You may be covered under an auto insurance policy of a family member you live with. We can help you explore all possibilities for recovering compensation, including making uninsured/underinsured claims.
