Summerlin, Nevada underinsured motorist claim attorney
We know that getting into a car or truck accident with an uninsured motorist adds a layer of uncertainty to the fear and devastation you may already be experiencing. Who will pay for the repairs to your vehicle? How will your medical bills be paid? If you have to take time off work, how will you afford your regular bills without that income?
If you carry uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage on your policy, the insurance company should pay for your injuries or property damage. Unfortunately, many providers try to shortchange you when it comes to paying the claim. The company may try to say that your injuries are not as severe as they are, flat out refuse to pay the claim, or pay less than what the law requires them to pay.
To get the maximum benefits allowable in events such as boat, taxi cab, distracted driving and motorcycle accidents, our attorneys will put together a compelling argument on your behalf. We will ask you for the details surrounding your incident, such as the following:
- What were the road and weather conditions like?
- Did the other driver try to flee the scene?
- What is the extent of your injuries?
- Will you require continued medical care?
- Was the other driver drunk or engaging in distracted driving behaviors?
Damages stemming from these claims often include debilitating injuries, property damage and time missed from work. An insurance policy will only cover certain items in the way of property and medical bills. Pursuing a personal injury lawsuit can help you recover compensation for other items, including the emotional trauma you may suffer following the accident. We can help you navigate confusing insurance provisions and file a lawsuit to secure a favorable verdict or settlement.
