Were You Hit by an Uninsured Driver?
You Need an Austin Auto Accident Attorney
Even though Texas law requires drivers to carry auto insurance, there are a large number of drivers who do not. Some never had insurance to begin with, or they had it but allowed it to expire. Other drivers have insurance, but they do not have enough to cover the cost of medical care and other expenses for a person whom they injure in a car accident. When uninsured or underinsured drivers cause another person to suffer serious injuries, it often takes legal action to hold them accountable for their actions.
We are a small, specialized law firm, which means that we can take the time to give each of our clients the individual attention that they deserve. As part of our commitment to honesty and integrity, we do not take every case – only those that are legitimate and have the potential of recovering compensation for the victim.
Understanding UM/UIM Insurance
In Texas, uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage is not automatic; they are optional policies that require an additional premium. Generally speaking, the coverage is usually very affordable, especially considering that it may be your only source of compensation after a car accident.
If you are hit by an uninsured driver, or by someone who does not have enough to pay your claim, your UM/UIM coverage may pay your expenses up to your policy limit. UM coverage is also supposed to provide compensation if you are the victim of a hit and run accident. Unfortunately, this does not always occur.
