Your Bay Area and Contra Costa County accident attorneys protect your rights
If you are involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, naturally you assume the other driver’s insurance company will cover your bills. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Many Bay Area drivers are underinsured so even if they have valid car insurance, their policy might not be substantial enough to pay all your expenses. Even worse, some motorists fail to have insurance at all, leaving you to lay awake at night worrying about how to manage your growing bills.
Our lawyers at Revere Law Group use their superior research and negotiation skills in conjunction with legal savvy to help you successfully navigate complex uninsured and underinsured motorist claims. Don’t let an irresponsible driver get away with damaging your vehicle, harming your health, and interrupting your life. Contact our San Francisco or Antioch office today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage in California
One of your auto insurance options is including uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage as part of your plan. If you have this type of coverage, your own insurance company may be able to make up the financial difference the other driver’s insurance cannot cover. Having underinsured and uninsured motorist coverage is essential for drivers in the Bay Area and Contra Costa County. You can even use that coverage if you are injured as a pedestrian or bicyclist, and the driver who hit you doesn’t have adequate coverage.
However, filing these types of claims with an insurance company is tricky. You should file a police report right away and retain all records of your medical expenses. An attorney in our San Francisco or Antioch, CA office can walk you through the entire process – making sure you get the proper compensation you deserve.
Why do I need Uninsured Motorist Coverage?
Since California only requires drivers to purchase $15,000 of liability insurance, you may only be left with a small amount of money to recover. Although $15,000 may seem like a lot of money, oftentimes it does not even come close to recoup our clients’ losses.
Additionally, if you were the victim of a hit and run accident and the other driver cannot be located, you can use your uninsured motorist coverage to pay your expenses without adversely affecting your own insurance premiums.
