After a car accident, most drivers exchange insurance information. But if one person doesn’t have enough insurance to cover the damages or drives without any coverage at all, there can be devastating consequences. In this situation, you could be the one who suffers the most.
Thankfully, you’re not alone. The Chicago uninsured / underinsured motorist lawyers at Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard P.C., are available to guide you through all of your legal options. We’re highly experienced at handling UM / UIM cases. Call us today at 312-372-1227 or use our online form to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation.
Even if the other driver is uninsured or underinsured, you still may be able to file a claim with your own insurance company. But this option is only available if you’ve purchased underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage, which is sometimes called UM/UIM coverage. While Illinois law requires all insurance companies to offer this feature, you aren’t obligated to buy it. That’s why it’s important to look over your policy carefully and find out what it covers.
If you have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage included in your insurance, you still may have to fight to get the money you deserve. Insurance companies don’t like having claims filed against them. You may need an attorney to intervene on your behalf.
