Uninsured Motorist Accident Attorney in Austin
According to statistics released in June 2012, roughly 13 percent of Texas drivers are driving without the minimum insurance coverage required by law. If you’ve purchased uninsured motorist coverage from your insurance provider, you’re entitled to receive compensation for your injuries and other costs incurred in the event of an accident with such a driver.
Any car accident can result in serious medical expenditures and lost wages. For instance, you may need surgery for a spinal cord injury and could require lengthy rehabilitation treatment keeping you out of work for weeks or months.
Don’t Trust the Insurance Companies
When you’re hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, your insurance company has a duty to provide for your recovery. However, it’s in the interest of insurers to pay out as little as possible. Insurance companies often:
- Delay payment
- Deny claims
- Refuse to pay certain parts of a claim
- Contest which driver was at fault
Individuals who try to fight these tactics on their own almost always find themselves outmatched and outmaneuvered by insurance industry lawyers.
