Uninsured Motorist Claims

Making Uninsured Motorist Claims After an Accident

Car Accident Lawyer Serving Austin, TX

Federal law requires drivers to purchase auto insurance to cover the costs of any property damage or injuries that they cause in the event of an accident. While most drivers are responsible in this regard, there are still many that choose to drive without insurance. If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, how can you make a claim for compensation?

Need advice after an uninsured motorist accident? Call The Daspit Law Firm today for a free consultation.

What Should You Do in an Accident with an Uninsured Driver?

When a driver lacks their own insurance coverage, you will have to rely on your own coverage to pay for damages after an accident. If you have purchased uninsured or underinsured (UM/UIM) coverage through your insurance company, you may be able to use it to pay for repairs to your vehicle and medical care. However, it may not be enough to cover all of your expenses. In this case, you may be able to file a claim against the negligent driver.

Before making a decision, consult with a lawyer from our firm. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we can help you determine whether it will be more beneficial for you to file a claim through your insurance or to sue the negligent driver. Since it is not possible to collect the same benefits twice, any costs that would not be covered by an insurance claim could not be recovered from a personal injury claim. By retaining our services, we can advise you on what would work best for your situation so that you can receive the maximum amount of financial compensation possible.

Don’t Delay – Call Today!

Because there is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in the state of Texas, it is important that you contact the Austin car accident lawyer from The Daspit Law Firm as soon as possible to begin discussing your options for legal action.

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
