As we pursue compensation for our crash clients, our attorneys search through all possible options, including:
The at-fault driver’s liability coverage
Illinois law requires drivers to carry liability insurance that pays for bodily injury and property damage they cause others.
Uninsured motorist (UM) coverage
You are required by Illinois law to have this coverage. It covers bodily injury to you, your passengers, members of your household or others authorized to drive your car if the other driver lacks liability coverage
Underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage
If you purchase UIM insurance above that of the at-fault driver, you may be entitled to compensation from your own UIM policy. Otherwise, it is optional. This coverage can pay for bodily injury damages. It covers the difference between your UIM limits and the at-fault driver’s coverage.
Other insurance coverage
We can review your insurance policy to determine if other types of coverage are available in your case, including medical payments, collision and comprehensive coverage.
At Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., we will conduct a comprehensive review of your case to determine the full extent of your losses and the proper value of your claim. We can then negotiate directly with the insurance company or go to court on your behalf.
