Earning Compensation From Uninsured Drivers
In Texas, drivers must carry a minimum amount of liability insurance to cover damages and injuries they may cause in an accident. Despite this requirement, not everyone complies, leaving responsible drivers to face the consequences. Finding out the other driver is uninsured can add another layer of stress and uncertainty, but it is possible to earn the compensation you need to recover.
At Link & Associates, we help clients throughout the Dallas area seek the settlement they need to cover the cost of their car accidents. If you were hit by an uninsured driver, we can help explore your options to pursue other options for covering the costs of your injuries.
Steps To Take After The Accident
Immediately after your accident, you can take measures to protect your best interests. First, be sure to report the accident to the police and secure a formal accident report. Also, exchange contact information with the other driver, even if they tell you they are uninsured. Then, collect footage of the crash scene and record any eyewitness testimony. Finally, contact us for guidance in pursuing the most favorable outcome in your claim.
Learning Your Compensation Options
When an uninsured or underinsured driver is at fault for your accident, there are other methods of covering the costs of your damages. You may already have insurance coverage that can apply to this kind of accident, either in the form of uninsured motorist coverage or underinsured motorist coverage.
Uninsured motorist coverage protects you if the at-fault driver has no insurance. Underinsured motorist coverage comes into play when the at-fault driver’s insurance isn’t enough to cover all your expenses. Both coverages are optional in Texas but can offer peace of mind and financial protection.
If you have uninsured motorist (UM) coverage, we can help you seek a settlement from your own insurance coverage. If you do not have UM coverage, filing a claim directly against the liable driver may also help you earn compensation.
