After a Car Accident
There is a great deal at stake in a car accident, which can result in health and property damage, criminal proceedings, and potential loss of assets. A car accident victim should exercise extreme caution after an accident, taking steps to protect their interests. This is critical for uninsured and underinsured drivers, who are exposed to a higher risk of being found partially or fully liable.
Following an accident, an uninsured or underinsured driver should:
- Never speak to insurance adjusters
- Contact a reputable car accident lawyer
- Provide your lawyer with a copy of your insurance policy and declarations page to determine the extent of your coverage
- Provide documentation of the accident, including a copy of the police report, witness statements, and photographs or videography
- Provide a written rejection of underinsured or uninsured motorists coverage
Mr. Dow can review all pieces of evidence in order to build a strong case in your defense.
Settlements vs. Trial
Most underinsured or uninsured driver cases can be settled in less than a year with a qualified attorney. The key to this timeframe is settlement, whereby both parties involved agree to certain terms and thereby end the claim. A claim that is not settled will go to trial. Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims seen before a judge usually take over one year and may be more costly. As such, settlements are the preferred method of resolving this type of claim.
