Uninsured Motorist Accidents
If you or a family member has sustained injuries in a car or truck accident, the last thing you want is to wrangle with insurance companies. Unfortunately, to get compensation for medical bills, lost current and future wages, suffering, physical therapy, and other damages, you often must deal with the delays and games insurance companies play. Even when both you and the driver who hit you have insurance, the process can be difficult.
The situation becomes even more difficult when the person who hit you doesn't have insurance or doesn't have enough insurance. The last thing you want is to be burdened with the additional indignity of paying out of pocket for your own care and time off work.
If you've been hurt in a car crash by the actions an uninsured driver, chances are, you still have good legal options. According to Illinois Law, every insurance policy sold must come with Uninsured Motorist Coverage. That means that your insurance company is obligated to pay some or all of the costs for damages and injuries sustained. It may also be possible to locate other liable parties to pay for your care and treatment.
