In Texas, all motorists are required to purchase an insurance policy to protect their losses as well as the victim’s in case of a collision. Unfortunately, this legal requirement is not always upheld by many drivers across our state.
Sometimes the driver held liable for your damages will be uninsured or underinsured, which means they do not have a policy that will cover your losses or do not have enough coverage to do so. If this is the case, you are limited to two options:
- Seek benefits from your own insurance if your policy includes uninsured/underinsured vehicle protection or
- Directly file a lawsuit against the uninsured driver at fault
Resorting to either of these options adds to the stress and complexity of dealing with a car wreck. A personal injury attorney can help you navigate your way through this burdensome situation.
