Victoria Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist
In order to collect underinsured or uninsured motorist benefits, a party generally must first establish that the underinsured or uninsured driver was at fault and that he or she suffered significant injuries.
If you are injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, your auto insurance and umbrella insurance policies provide coverage for medical bills, other out-of-pocket expenses, and lost income. However, “standard” uninsured motorist limits tend to be relatively low.
Have you been in an accident with a motorist who was uninsured or underinsured? If you were injured by an uninsured or underinsured motorist and decide to make an uninsured motorist claim/underinsured motorist claim, we strongly recommend that you find an attorney with experience making these claims.
Our legal team will review your policy to see your coverage for:
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Emotional distress
- Medical bills and wage loss
- Pain, suffering and disfigurement
- Cost of hospitalization
- Lost wages
- Disability or Reduced Earning Capacity
Texas has one of the highest standards for minimum liability coverage: $25,000 per individual, up to a total of $50,000 for all people injured in a single automobile accident. A serious injury can quickly go over the minimum liability coverage and leave you looking for answers.
All insurance policies require that the insurance company act in good faith when reviewing a claim and deciding what action to take. If the insurance company did not perform an adequate investigation, or attempted to settle your claim for less than what it's fair worth, you may have a viable bad faith claim against it and you can recover all of your benefits and additional damages.If you’ve suffered an injury from an uninsured or underinsured motorist in Victoria, TX, call us right away.
