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.

  • Thank you so much Daspit!!

    “Thank you so much Daspit!! You made the accident that I was in not so traumatizing. When I was hit by a person who was not from Houston and did not know downtown well he at first was sorry and admitted it was his fault until the cops showed up. From that point on I was in a panic until I entered your office and you guided me through.I recommend Daspit to anyone who wants to be treated with compassion and needs true guidance through the law.”
