Austin Underinsured Motorist Accident Attorney

Looking for an Underinsured Motorist Claims Lawyer in Austin, Texas?

If you sustained injuries or lost a loved one in an Austin, Texas motor vehicle accident that was caused by a reckless, distracted, intoxicated or otherwise negligent driver, you are legally entitled to be compensated for the damages that you suffered because of the accident. In most cases this means that the insurance company of the negligent driver in your accident will pay out compensation for your losses. If however the liable party in your accident is underinsured, meaning that their insurance coverage is lower than the total amount of your damages, things get a bit more complicated. If the negligent driver is underinsured you can try to recover the damages that aren’t covered by their insurance policy directly from the liable driver. However, if the driver is underinsured, chances are high that they won’t have sufficient funds to compensate for the damages themselves. In this case you should be able to retrieve additional compensation from your underinsured motorist coverage if you have it included in your auto insurance.

Underinsured motorist coverage covers the part of your damages that the underinsured liable driver’s insurance won’t cover. In many cases it also covers the damages of any passengers in your vehicle that were involved in the accident as well as accidents that you were victim of as a pedestrian or cyclist.

Fast Free Case Evaluation

In most cases it is not immediately apparent that you are involved in an underinsured motorist accident. It usually takes some time before the entire extent of the damages that you suffered becomes clear and you know for sure whether the negligent driver in your accident is sufficiently insured or not. Because of the complexity involved in an underinsured motorist claim, it is a good idea to hire a lawyer to help guide you through the process of filing an injury claim against the liable party in your accident and an underinsured motorist claim with your insurance company. An experienced injury attorney can help you quickly determine the extent of the damages that you suffered in the accident so you know how much you need to retrieve from your underinsured motorist policy to cover your losses.

All the initial feedback about my potential case turned out to be 100% accurate, and when it finally came time to settle they didn’t back off an inch. …If you’re hurt, make the call."
