Texas law requires every driver on the road to carry auto insurance with minimum coverage of $30,000 for each injured person, $60,000 total for bodily injury in an accident, and $25,000 in property damage. This is to protect people from paying out of pocket for accident-related expenses that aren’t their fault. There are also many serious consequences for driving without insurance.
Yet, many people do it every day. Negligent drivers without insurance can cause major accidents that leave you with medical bills, lost wages, emotional suffering, and other types of damages. If you were injured by an uninsured driver, it’s important to get your auto accident attorney involved as soon as possible to discuss your legal options and find a way to receive compensation.
Legal Options After an Accident with an Uninsured Driver
Generally, there are only two ways to recover compensation after an accident with an uninsured driver.
One option is to sue the at-fault driver. Since you can’t file a claim with their insurance provider, then you would file a lawsuit against the person. An experienced auto accident attorney like Daniel Horowitz can file the suit and also prepare for trial by gathering evidence and building your case. If you go to court, our firm also represents your side to the jury and fights fiercely in court to get you compensation.
However, in many cases, uninsured drivers don’t have any assets to go after that will cover your damages. In these cases, it may be best to file a claim with your own insurance through your uninsured motorist coverage. You may or may not have this coverage, as it is technically optional, but insurance companies in Texas are required to offer it to you.
If you do have this coverage, you will file a claim for your damages with your insurance company. However, keep in mind that just because it’s your own insurance company doesn’t mean that they have your best interests in mind. Therefore, you may want to hire a car accident attorney to handle your case.
Your insurance company will still likely try to avoid paying you a fair settlement amount for your uninsured motorist accident. Your auto accident attorney is here to file your claim, provide evidence, and negotiate with the adjuster to get you maximum compensation for your case.
We regularly fight for victims of car accidents against big insurance companies and win. Our team advocates for you tirelessly even if the insurance company is playing hardball to reduce the payout for your claim. When you hire our firm for your case, you get the advantage of experience and a board-certified personal injury attorney on your side fighting for you.
